What is Your Personal Style? | A Rose in Bloom

Occasionally I try to box in what exactly my style is in life. Is it 90s inspo grunge? 70s bohemian dream? What do I like? What do my clothes say about me? I love the wind rustling long skirts in the wind with boho prints reflecting sunlight back onto the rolling fields. But I definitely have a side of me that wants to be a little tough with sturdy boots and rough lines.

Then the other day, I saw May mention that her style is a "swipe of bohemian on the strength of grunge" and that resonated through my apartment walls a little bit. I say a little bit, because reverse the words around, and I would say that's quite my style indeed.

Like her, I believe style is an evolutionary process and it has taken me quite some time to get here.

When I was younger, I did not wear pants. At. All. Not a big deal, really. I always liked the swish of a skirt on the 4th of July while popsicles cooled my tongue.

Today, there is still some semblance of that girl hanging around. While I do enjoy a good ripped skinny with a slouchy sweater, I still love light skirts that move. The more they look like they could be worn by a pirate wench or parking lot loiterer the better. But why the two extremes? Why something so lovely followed by something so rough?

Maybe it is because I am an extreme person. I am happy or sad. I am angry or joyful. Hell, I am either not hungry at all or starving. It's a part of who I am, and while I am always striving for a balanced life, there is definitely a part of me ingrained to be extreme. I accept myself for who I am.

But back to balance. Today, I have balanced my loves. I have paired a delightful 90s-esque daisy sweatshirt with a bohemian slip. I have paired lace with severe boots. I have traveled from a sweeping field of flowers to a desolate rooftop overlooking the city.

So yes, my style is a style of extremes. I am a lover of everything with lace and a flow. I am also a lover of harder things, things that need the softening only an open heart shall bring. I am lover of all sides of this world. If my personal style is in any way significant of psyche, then I am a swipe of grunge on the strength of bohemian. I will have it both ways.

What is your personal style? Is it reflective of your charismatic heart?

Stay Beautiful,
