Finding what works
Gap Shirt + Flats // Gap Skirt (thrifted) // Anthropologie Belt // H&M Hat
Until I sat down to write this I didn't even realize I was wearing almost all Gap. I actually miss their older stuff like this. The last year or two whenever I walk into their stores I've felt like their new collections are a little too trendy for me. They used to be so amazing with classics, it was all things that you could own for years and years and it wouldn't go out of style because it was pretty timeless. Last time I was in one of their stores I saw a whole lot of neon, and I am not a neon girl, at all. I've seen plenty of people make it look cute, but it's just not something that I could ever see myself wearing.
I have no problems with trends, I think they're a natural progression of things actually. However I think it's important to be able to look at a trend and know whether you love it because it's something that fits with you and your personal style, or whether you maybe like it just because you're seeing a whole lot of it (I've totally caught myself warming to a trend simply because I've seen it so many times). I just saw on another blog that apparenly knotting your shirt is a big trend this summer, and that is a trend that I can fully and totally support. Trends like chevron though, I adore on others and love the pattern itself, but I just never felt like it was something that went with my style.
Have you guys come across trends you adore but decided they weren't quite right for you? I think it's interesting to continually be discovering more about my personal style and what works for me.
