What I Wore | Becoming the Woman I Want to Be

Style evolution is truly an amazing thing. When I styled this look in my head, I couldn't wait to wear it. And when I put it on, I fell even more in love with all of the new pieces. And then I looked down, and then in the mirror, and incredibly surprised.

If someone told me ten years ago that I would have blonde hair, wearing loose boyfriend jeans and flatform shoes, I would have been shocked. Seeing as I was 14 going on 15 ten years ago, had my natural-never-colored-hair in a grown out bob, wearing skinny jeans when they were hard to find and everyone else wore flares, and ballet flats. Not necessarily a bad look, especially for a freshman, however I had this burning passion and love for style; and wasn't surrounded in the most accepting place to express it fully.

However, now? That's completely different.

I work in a very creative environment, and expressing yourself through your appearance is greatly encouraged. And that is something that I am so grateful for.

Recently, I was reading Rachel Zoe's book, Living In Style. In the beginning part, she talks about being on a family vacation as a child, and seeing women around her that had this very distinct look and style and how much she knew that was the woman she wanted to be. 

And of course, that got me thinking, about what I had been pondering. This year I have been thinking a lot about what my style is like and where I would like it grow. And really pushing myself in every way possible. Style wise, career wise, and every other way possible. I want to become one of the women I look up to. And the thing is, I am well on my way.
