Sometimes reader friends will mention that a certain outfit I wear/post doesn't look like my "normal" style. I, by no means, take this in a negative way because I know it is not meant in that manner. It does however make me scratch my head and ask myself, "What category do people put my style in?"
I come here on a daily/weekly basis and show you me. If we were to ever meet on the street you would see me as you do on my blog...when I don't have a big zit and have my make-up on. I don't fit a certain mold. I don't have a certain style, per se...I never have. I really do like most everything that relates to fashion, trends and genres. What I put on when I wake up depends on a handful of things; my mood, plans, weather or if I just bought something new that I am dying to wear. At the end of it all, I guess my style would be eclectic...a mix of this and that, but all things 100% me and my personality. Sometimes I feel feisty, edgy, girly, bohemian, country, professional, whimsical or a little bit of everything all rolled into one.
This past weekend when I wore this look, I felt a little "cowgirlish" being at the Ft. Worth Stockyards, Wednesday I was channeling a boho vibe, Monday I shared some leather love and last week was a whole other mix of adjectives.

If you think about it, personal style is exactly like wanting a greasy burger one day and a steaming plate of enchiladas the next, jamming out to an old school rap song one minute then belting out your favorite love song ballad, flipping back and forth between Friends re-runs and the NBA playoffs, burning a peppermint scented candle in the winter and citrus fruit in the summer, having one friend you can tell your deepest, darkest secrets to and one that you always want to vacation with...you get my point?
The beauty of getting ourselves "dressed" every day is that we can visually express our emotions, attitudes, personalities or whatever we are feeling at the moment. It's almost like a time capsule we get to dig from the ground one day to look back on and see where we were at during certain moments in our lives. It's a true reflection of us...just like food, music, entertainment and friendships...it's all an art. I truly believe we are all living, breathing, walking pieces of pure craftsmanship...not just in what we wear, but the people we are underneath the clothes, shoes, make-up and jewelry.
On that note, I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend. As we speak, I am on a Girl Scout Sea World adventure with too many nine-year-olds to count. Pray for me.
