It’s taken me lots of trial and error to find out my personal style. I used to rely heavily on trends to guide me on what to wear. Then, I became really edgy and grungy. I wanted everything to be black, studded, and torn. I got over that phase in a few years, around 2012, and after that, I went super preppy, wearing almost a schoolgirl like uniform on the reg. That phase, too, had an expiration date and I was left with a wardrobe without direction.

I decided to start loading up on the classics. The next step was to identify time periods I liked and related to and styles and silhouettes I felt comfortable in. The 1960s is my favorite decade for fashion. And I love wearing blazers and button-ups. So I kind of started using that as my own sartorial DNA.

Now, I’m still a fashion girl so I’m always going to try new trends. However, this particular outfit really holds true to that ’60s persona I like to channel. I’ve tried to get rid of this white, collarless shirt several times but something always hits me and I keep it. I’m glad I did because it is so chic and great for tucking.

These cream culottes are a favorite of mine. I don’t care if they aren’t flattering, they are awesome and free and make me want to do cartwheels. The scarf is another from my mom’s stash and I love how it just flows in the wind when I walk. I kept the whole look neutral so the scarf was the only pop of color and the result is soft, refreshing, and I think even Jackie O herself might approve. Like what you see?
