Last year I realized that I wanted to start investing more in the pieces in my wardrobe (ranging from clothes to footwear). There have been a number of fast fashion items in my closet that I’ve truly loved from a design perspective, but sadly they have worn out after a year or two. Personally, I’m someone who likes to find classic yet trend-forward and interesting pieces that will last me more than one season. While on my blog in the past I’ve highlighted a lot of different trends each season, I’ve realized through the process I prefer to have a more consistent style. (Plus I seriously don’t have the energy to shop all the time!) Don’t get me wrong, I still love trying out new trends from time to time, but I’ve learned that my overall personal style is less defined by following all the latest trends.
