Styled by…..tells the story behind someones style. What does a person tell by the way she or he is dressed? What does it say about their personality? When did they began to create their own style? The series is published every first Tuesday of the month.
Do you also have a story to tell, and do you also have beautiful pictures of your style evolution? I, and many of my readers, want to read your story! I would love it if you can join the fun too! You can find all the info in the Styled by…..page or contact me via email.
Let’s quickly see who has a great story this month!
This month tells Marloes about her style!
Ever since I can remember I’ve enjoyed chosing my own outfits. Even for my first communion I picked a different outfit from the one my parents chose, I was the only girl wearing a jeans skirt and a bright yellow sweater. I never minded what everyone else was wearing and always chose my own path.
In high school I changed styles as quickly as changing my underwear: every day I would wear a different style. The only requirement I had for my clothes was that they were unique, or at least the combination was unique. After a while I identified as an “alternative”, only dressing in oversized jeans and black tops. However, when I went to college I decided it was time for a new me, so I reinvented my style and decided to only wear dresses and high heels. I know right!
Now after having two kids and starting my “grown-up” life I think I finally found my true style. I think my style is best described as Scandinavian Chic, I love simple and elegant pieces that can be easily combined amongst each other. I like – no love!- stripes in any form or colour and anything femine with a bit of an edge (yes, I still have a bit of that little girl inside of me 😉 ).
Where my younger self wanted to have as many clothes and shoes as possible, I now see the value of investment pieces. I rather have clothes that will last and flatter my figure, that are going to be true favourites, than have a closet full of clothes that I kind of like but don’t absolutely love. This of course doesn’t mean I have an empty closet, as I still have a lot of my clothes that I bought earlier, but I am more picky in the new items I buy. I still like unique items, but I try not to buy something just because it’s trendy. When I buy something, it needs to feel like me. And something is me, when it’s comfortable, classy and a littly sassy!
Thank you very much Marloes! You are such a beautiful woman! You can read more about Marloes at her blog Mooier Leven.
