Black has always been a color that pretty much everyone can embrace, but Navy can also be a color that works in any season, on any skin tone and most importantly, is versatile and can be worn with many other colors. I know it’s easy to think of dark colors when Fall and Winter are coming, but there are also so many other alternatives that can add a little spice to your wardrobe.
I have been wearing a lot of short sleeved blouses, T shirts and such during the summer because the weather has been so hot and dry, so now as Fall quickly approaches (can you believe it’s Labor Day weekend this weekend?), adding some flowing, feminine long sleeved blouses is something I am really looking forward to.
I am not someone that is OK to wear the same things over and over (not that there’s anything wrong with that), I just like to express myself differently, and I really get bored with wearing clothes that are seasonal. That’s why, even though I don’t look forward to Winter or colder days, I do look forward to wearing layers, different styles, and different shoes or boots. See, I’ve managed to find a silver lining in the fact that I don’t like cold weather 😉
What do you look forward to when the seasons change? Just like every Monday it is an opportunity to look at the week and make a decision to make it go well…not that things can’t happen to derail even the best intentions. Seasons can be just like Mondays! I look forward to different activities, different fashions, different feelings that come from weather, environment and how warm I am. I am very sensitive to weather and when I don’t see sunshine for long periods of time, it causes me to feel down and a little demotivated…which is why I moved from England to Salt Lake City which is essentially a desert. Not that I don’t love England and its green rolling hills, but I crave sunshine, mountains and warmth. So, for 3-4 months of the year I have to plan trips to warm climates (because winters here are definitely cold). Even during the winters here I see the sunshine, which is the most important thing to me.
So as I start thinking about what I am going to wear during the Fall and Winter (yes, I know, it may be weird planning that far ahead, but I like to have an idea of what I already own and what new seasonal items I want to purchase this year, so that the outfits I put together can convey my own unique style), I check different stores online, I check out Nordstrom and their Anniversary Sale, I look on blogs, Pinterest, in magazines and I always check sites and watch people from Europe to see what they are wearing. One of things I remember when I first moved here was that my styles were a little ahead of the styles in Utah, so I always like to makes sure I am keeping up with the newest styles which are often not from the US.
Are you always looking for new trends, styles and ways to express yourself like I am? Do you have any routines or tricks that help you stay on top of your style? I would love you to share them with me if you do!
