With Style and a Little Grace: My Style Evolution

My Style Evolution

I thought it might be really fun/really embarrassing to take a look back at how my style has evolved over the years. I only went back to 2011 because honestly it is quite time consuming to round up all the photos and 2011 is about the time I started blogging. Plus in college it was all t-shirts to class and "going out tops" and jeans by night. Anyone else? 

I finally got rid of the college weight I put on between 2011 and 2012 so I think that is when I really started feeling comfortable again in my own skin. My wardrobe was pretty boring in 2011 and really needed an update.I got back to the size I had been my entire life pre late night food/drinking in college. I started adding new items to my very diminished wardrobe and for awhile I really didn't have that many options. We got engaged and I was prepping for our wedding. I was super into stripes and peplum tops. My Steve Madden leopard flats are still are favorite. 

2013 was the year I purchased my Pixie pants, my favorite Zara leggings and my trusty Tory Burch flats. I seriously think that I lived in them that entire year. I darkened my hair and promptly decided I hated it - note to self don't drastically change your hair color before engagement parties. Looking back that was not my best decision because I just am not a fan. I started to develop a major love of preppy all american style. 

2014 is when I really started documenting my style on the blog. My favorites that year included the very popular blanket scarf, my strappy Zara sandals, and a great hot pink lip color. The preppy vibes that I started to love are really developing into a great wardrobe. 

It is really funny because I can really tell where I started to invest in great pieces that would last in 2015. I see my style a bit more clearly than I ever have before: classic Americana, feminine pieces, and a few trendy items mixed in. I really love shaping my wardrobe and finding pieces that are timeless. 

I can already tell a bit of a difference from 2015 to 2016. The pieces are a little more traditional and classic. I think the next few years in the beginning of my thirties I am really narrowing down exactly what I love and what works for me. 

So what do y'all think of my Style Evolution over the past 5 years? What are your best and worst style memories? 

Thank y'all so much for reading!
