“To be a fashionable woman is to know yourself, know what you represent, and know what works for you. To be “in fashion” could be a disaster on 90 percent of women. You are not a page out of Vogue.” ~Author Unknown.
Since I have turned twenty I have had this desire to dress my age, considering my circumstance of being a mother. I have read many blogs and internet postings by twenty year old’s with advice. Although I cannot recall exactly where I read this, I read that in your twenties is a time to experiment with your clothing, and you can wear almost anything. But by the time you are in your thirties you should know.
In my teenage years I would wear an arrangement of bright colors and very unique clothing, while staying modest. I always stood out of the crowd. Later on I took on a very punk style.
Now in my twenties after having Myles, my clothing is used to express another side of me. I want to feel mature and comfortable in what I wear. I stay away from frumpy. I keep up to date on trends of what is ‘in’ and ‘out. However, what you wear does not define you. Ever. Fashion is to express yourself.
I try to express comfort, and timelessness with an artsy feel. Why? Because that is who I am. Once you know who you are, and are comfortable with who you are, fashion will follow. That is one thing that I have learned about keeping this blog. I have learned to love my individual style and that is is, well, an evolved me.
Thanks always, Annie
