Establishing a sense of balance in my wardrobe has been one of my greatest victories…
…I have gone through every “fashion phase” you can think of & it has all served a cringe worthy purpose. I realized most importantly not to pigeon hole myself to a certain “look” because my style is constantly evolving.
For example, I don’t shop exclusively at 2 or 3 stores — I shop any & everywhere. Also, nothing is too preppy, too edgy, too boho, too biker, too cowgirl, too Olympic gymnast, etc. when you know how to balance out the item with other pieces. This may seem very self-explanatory but, ’twas not for this girl. There is a serious sense of satisfaction when you watch your style evolve into less & less of a train wreck.
These pants from Hudson are a good example. They have calf skin, quilted accents & a very biker vibe. I would usually wear them with a plain v-neck tee & go all “Grease is the Word” but I wanted to find a top that would balance them out for a more “girly” look. I ran across this babydoll number & fell in love — the rest is history. This look is also a prime example of balancing price points. You don’t have to be dripping in designer labels to put together a cohesive ensemble. Pants that might be considered a “splurge” + a $20 top. Score.
Hope this inspires you to find a little balance in your closet!
