Last week, I asked my blog followers for their opinions on style & ideas and I received some amazing feedback. One statement in particular resonated with me,
my main dilemma is finding my own personal style… I love a tomboy look (denim shirt, tight skinnies, leather booties, fedora), but I love girly midi skirts and nice blouses, and I love the ethnic look with Mexican and Indian prints, but also classy and clean!! I can’t cater to all of these because my closet is just a mess.
So, how do I find my own personal style when I like so many?
I love the honesty of this statement. I cannot tell you how many times I struggled (and still do) to define exactly what my personal style is. And here is what I’ve come to discover and I hope this helps you too…..
Jean jackets are one of my favorite closet pieces. Last year, I poured my heart out about my profound love of jean jackets, issued a closet staple decree, and went along my merry way. Today I want to re-visit that topic and show you how many jean jacket outfits you can make from this one simple article of clothing.
Since moving here not too long ago (tomorrow marks 2 months! where does the time go!) I’ve had coffee chats, worked together with, and been inspired by some amazing creative people. One of the most amazing things I’ve learned through a big move is that there is creativity at work everywhere around me. In San Diego, it was amazing to see those who put their hearts and souls into their work. Whether it was a blogging hobby or a full time photography career, the energy was there all the same. When we found out we were moving to Toronto, I was sad to leave that behind in San Diego. I wasn’t all too sure where to start looking for a similar energy. Alas, a little creative digging on social media and what do you know? There are some amazing people showing just the same creativity at work & rocking the Toronto creative world.

Time to break out those lighter colors in our closets and time to start figuring out what to wear with white jeans. I’ve said it before, I’m a big believer of wearing white jeans all year round. But there is something about warmer temperatures that makes me re-organize my jeans in my closet so that my white jeans and lighter denim is front-and-center.
