The best part of having a visual diary of the last 6 (almost 7!) years of outfits is seeing how my style has changed. The last year has definitely been an interesting shift. I traded all of my fit and flare dresses for oversized cardigans, crew-neck pullovers, and learned to layer. The outfit in today’s post is very indicative of my day-to-day outfits. It’s a hint of girly with the tomboy, which I love. A small peek of the light pink stripes on the button down layered under the tie front sweater is too cute. A subtle nod to my favourite Hallmark Holiday without being so in-your-face-YAY-VALENTINE’S-DAY! Plus, being able to layer these lighter pieces for the Winter and then learning to decouple them for the warmer seasons will be perfect.
Seeing this style transition over the last 3 Valentine’s Day outfits is so fascinating! Pieces that I used to love back in the day – like those red jeans – are not pieces that I can even fathom reaching for today.
P.S. These are the destroyed boyfriend jeans from the January budget recap post. I ended up keeping them and really love the relaxed fit.
