With this week’s topic for #CharmingChat, I’ve been thinking a lot about my own personal style. Specifically, how it’s changed over the past few years and how I would define my signature style today. I think style is something that is constantly evolving, and we should embrace that change. While you’re much more likely to see me in maxi skirts and a tank top these days (I’m at that weird point in my pregnancy where nothing old fits but I can’t justify buying anything new yet), I do have a fairly simple and comfortable aesthetic. I do love heels and wedges, but mainly with jeans and casual blazers. I do own my fair share of pencil skirts and business casual dresses that I love, though those aren’t coming out until at least next year. For this week’s style post, I wanted to wear something that was 100% ME, from top to bottom. Not something that I’m trying too hard to wear; something that, if we ran into each other at the mall, you would see me in.
If I’m wearing makeup (which, half the time I’m not), it’s natural and consists of only five products – NARS tinted moisturizer, NARS translucent powder, Clinique mascara, MAC blush in Fleur Power, and Laura Mercier lipstick in Baby Lips (this stuff is the bomb.dot.com – it goes on almost like a chapstick, which makes it super low maintenance for me). I would say eighty percent of the time my hair is up in a ponytail (no bows for me lately), and the most I accessorize with is a scarf and maybe a necklace or earrings. No bracelets, ever (I hate having things on my wrist other than a watch). If it’s easy, it’s me, and I’m okay with that.
Ignore my wonky eye in these pictures. Note to self – stop blinking.
