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…
