All Mixed Up.

All Mixed Up.

When it comes to my own personal style, I find it hard to define.  Some people can easily identify their style as feminine, or edgy, or classic, or preppy, or casual, but I find that mine is a mixture of them all, preferably all at once – it’s all about the juxtaposition in my eyes.

What’s even better is when pieces incorporate those multiple styles all in one.  For example, an oversized blazer is chic while also being casual and these new gold jewels from Kendra Scott with their spiky shape and pave sparkle are equal parts edgy and classic.

Last night Matt and I grabbed dinner and he complimented this outfit, telling me I looked like really professional in the blazer and I joked with him that it was more “California professional” since I paired the blazer with cutoffs haha!  But really, I was soooo excited that it was finally warm enough to bring them out since the weather lately has been hovering just above freezing (I’m being dramatic but it’s actually not far from the truth).  I lusted after these One Teaspoon shorts for over a year but the price kept me away, but now that I own them I can honestly say they are 100% worth it.  They are short, yes, but somehow really flattering.  If you’ve been on the fence, do it – just order one size up!

What about you, does your style fall into one category or is a mix of a few?

    • Um hi you could not be any sweeter! Thanks for making a girl feel so good – you’re the best!

  • Ummmm hello gorgeous! Love, LOVE, love this look so much! Like you I have just never been able to pinpoint my style as one specific thing so I’m all for outfits that include a little of this and a little of that! And I still really, REALLY need to get a pair of those shorts…so cute!

    • Well thank you so much!! I like to think that not being able to define our style is better than a cookie-cutter style, glad we are in this together! And you totally DO need those shorts, I was really hesitant, but they are the bomb dot com.

    Love this! I pair my cutoffs with just about everything so this look is right up my alley!

    • Yes you totally know how to rock the cutoffs, I always love when you pair them with a killer embroidered jacket – I need to get one of those!

  • You knowwwww how down I am for a blazer + cutoffs combo. 🙂 Great look, lady!

    • Thank you so much sweets! It turned out to be one of my favorite looks too! I never wear that blazer because it’s so long that it looks weird with pants, but decided to try it with the cutoffs and it struck a great balance!

  • Love this look, girlie! And totally agree – just wrote something similar! I think it’s really hard to define my own personal style, but taking the time to think about it really helped me pinpoint it!

    • I’ll have to go read your post about it 🙂 In a way, I really like not being able to define it exactly, leaves it open and doesn’t make me feel like I can’t do something because it doesn’t fit the right category!

  • Looking lovely hon it’s nice when you can use simple pieces to make a gorgeous outfit.
