Dressed

What story do I want my closet to tell?

I’ve always been interested in fashion. But, having a virtually nonexistent shopping budget meant that my wardrobe consisted mostly of jeans and t-shirts. The flyest things I owned were relegated to the winter season since the double whammy of Christmas and my birthday in January always meant several new outfits. Now that I’m growing up, finishing law school and looking to enter the work force, I’m recreating my wardrobe. I read a post at Wardrobe Oxygen that linked to this one. Both articles essentially ask the question: what are your style personalities? My closet is still a work in progress as I edit out the things that don’t work for me, but the looks below reflect what I’m drawn to and aspire to in my fashion presentation.

Sporty Prep- My main aesthetic. Relaxed, classic, stylish.
