If there is one topic I can talk the most about is fashion. Hint the whole reason behind the blog. But seriously, there is just so much when it comes to fashion. Besides exciting topics like what’s the latest trend, one topic I like talking about the most is your wardrobe. There is so much your wardrobe tells about who you are, it’s fascinating to me.
When I look at my wardrobe I see a women who wears many hats. She likes a glamours, classic style thats easy and can be maximized. You can find something super glam like my velvet open back maxi in my wardrobe. You will also find boss girl items like my leopard midi skirt and statement sweater to my mom uniform over the weekends that consist a basic tee and leggings. And honestly, I feel my wardrobe describes me pretty well. Was it always like this? Heck no! But I figured out the balance and the right questions I should be asking myself about my current wardrobe.
So, what does your wardrobe say about you?
Let’s take a peak into your wardrobe. What does your wardrobe say about your style? Does it even go with who you are today? Does it go with the lifestyle you have right now? Is it dated? Is it too trendy? I know, too many questions right? But guess what babes? Your wardrobe says everything about who you are. Every single time you step out of the house people can already identify somewhat who you are and your personality, just by taking a look at what you’re wearing.
Is your wardrobe dated?
Are you still holding on to items you wore 10 years ago, but don’t wear it now? Deep down you know you would never be caught wearing it now… it isn’t who you are anymore, and that’s okay. As we grow and evolve, so does our taste/style on things. Find pieces that makes you feel good about you now and who you have become.
Is your wardrobe super trending?
It’s hard not to give into trends when you see them everywhere… I know the struggles 😉 Make sure your wardrobe is trending and functional. Too much of anything isn’t ever good. You need basics in the mix of trendy pieces. Basics are what helps a trendy piece be maximized over and over, creating a brand new outfit each time.
Does your wardrobe describe “the real” you?
Sometimes we buy things, just because… like “it’s one sale”, “someone gave it to me”, “I thought I would like it, everybody is wearing them”, etc. Sometimes going shopping can be more hazardous than good. Of course that $5 skirt sounded like the best idea at the time. I mean, you can’t beat that! You start thinking about outfit ideas (which will never happen) on how to make that skirt work. 2 years later, it’s still in the closet with the tags attached. Don’t give into purchasing stuff just because it is a steal knowing it isn’t who you are!
Does your wardrobe fit your lifestyle?
Do you have a new career? Are you a new mom? The tees you use to wear in college aren’t going to work for the women you are now being at the office. Nor is holding on to all your 20 business suits you use to wear for the stay at home mom you currently are. Your lifestyle changed. You aren’t the same girl anymore. And that is okay! Celebrate your new position in life by dressing like you belong there.
What does your wardrobe say about you?
Change is hard, but it’s what we need to better ourselves. I believe in having a functional wardrobe you love. A wardrobe that describes who you are as a person!

This is an interesting post because it’s true. We are what we wear. I have pretty much basics and neutrals in my wardrobe. I don’t own a power suit nor do I own a gown. I am very simplistic when it comes to what I wear and I do believe it is reflected in my closet. Since blogging though, there has been a lot of temptation to venture out. I don’t think a jumpsuit is crazy but I am glad to give it a try. It definitely would have been a no go for me if I wasn’t exposed to it through the blogosphere. I hope all is well Melissa and happy Wednesday.

Isn’t it crazy how open we are to try new fashion pieces through our blogs? I have been so open lately about a lot of pieces ever since I started blogging. Some where a miss but others like statement earrings are now part of my everyday wardrobe.
