Sorry that I've been less present than normal -- this whole house selling/buying process sure is time-consuming! We've had at least one showing almost every day, with up to 4 in one day. I've never cleaned so much and so furiously in my life. Well worth it though, because after just one offical week on the market, we are working out a contract. Not only that, but we've also found a dreamy house that we love, and are so very excited. The new house is very English Countryside, and in the wee hours, I've been madly pinning ideas to my Pinterest home boards.
It's had me thinking about my decorating style, and how I'm quite steady in that. Which of course brought me to thinking more on my personal style. I've consistenly struggled with trying to pinpoint my style, because it has always wavered between two ends of the spectrum -- preppy classic, and a more romantic boho flowiness. In my head, I kept telling myself at this point in my life, I should just pick one, work my wardrobe around it, and be done. I found myself giving away/sell items that fit one personality and later on regretting it.
Instead, I've come to embrace the fact that my "gut-feeling style" is both, and will be quite likely for the rest of my days. I feel comfortable and chic in either style. I happily wear a gingham button-up shirt under a preppy crewneck sweater one day and a flowy, lacy tunic with boots the next day. I'm finally embracing it, and just focusing on editing to the items that make me feel amazing, that are comfortable (making me more likely to reach for them), and that will last me for as long as I want to wear them.
What is your style? Do you keep to one aesthetic, or do you ramble a bit? Are you still trying to nail it down or have you settled into your best look?
