STYLE RUT

Get yourself out of that style rut…


I love fashion. I have no problem investing in myself. There's a difference from being vain or superficial and caring about the face you put forward. A little self care goes a long way. Because I have a capsule wardrobe and wear only basics (my style icon is that of Audrey Hepburn) I have a tendency of getting into a style rut, especially when I don't have the finances to get the new seasonal pieces that I want.

We are in spring now, and dressing for that season is not a struggle (short of getting my dream Burberry trench coat). But when it comes to the hotter season of the year... I can’t be the only person who is utterly perplexed with summer dressing. At the same time I. WANTS. IT. ALL. I sit in this odd place where I want to look summery – I really do! Promise! – but I’m not quite sure where to start, let alone what to buy.  I just don't get it, and I don't think floral dresses suit me.

Whenever I feel like I'm in a style rut, Instagram and Pinterest are the first places I go. I like to immerse myself in beauty and follow people I find inspiring. I like to look to history and see what the style icons wore and how I can translate it today.

I like to save pictures for the season and see if there are any over arching things.
