A Fashion Mid-Year Crisis…

I think I’m having a fashion mid-year crisis.  Or is it a mid-year fashion crisis.  Or is it even a crisis at all?

I didn’t post last week and it’s due to my inability to ground myself – fashion-wise.  I’m all over the place!  

Pinks and polyester-silk blends one day and understated black dresses with large hoop earrings the next. 

I’ve been wearing a lot of stripes lately too. Does that mean I want to change my own, figuratively speaking? 

Blame it on the weather or the season.  Or the simple fact that I can wear fleece lined black tights every day and be very, very happy (and warm). 

I do think it’s more than just the weather or the need for warmth.  I’ve been feeling the need to reinvent myself and to adopt a new look.  

I do like to dress on trend and find myself caught up in the whirlwind of ever-changing fashion “what’s hot now” fads.  

While I’m not giving that up, I’m thinking about evolving from a world of bows, pinks, polka dots and midi-skirts to one filled with bold colors and sleek lines.   I’m thinking of cutting my hair.   Images of a chic, Vidal Sassoon-esque (circa 1960) bob flash before my eyes.  No more buns or pony tails.  Gone are the days of the good girl.  Hello modern art maven! 

I might take it a step further and lean towards a more gender neutral look.  Tailored black suits with Italian made loafers and just the right bold bag.  Ok…maybe some ruffles. 

Who knows where I’ll land.  I do still love my polka dots, midi-skirts and cardigans.  Perhaps, until I figure out just who I’m becoming, I’ll just take it day by day.  For now…stripes are the answer.  

Have a great week!  xx…
