How my style has changed & Monthly Must-Reads

Question of the month from Alison & Noelle: How would you describe your own personal style? How has it evolved over the years?


THEN (Pics from 8 years ago):
  • Delicate jewelry, floral prints, cheap & cheerful bags


Outfit details here: Navy Polka Dots / Sequin Top / Gingham Shirt  / Chambray Shirt / Blazer / Lace Dress

NOW
  • Statement necklaces, polka dot or gingham prints, lots of layering, luxe bags

 UNCHANGED:
  • Simplicity & comfort - I'll always wear jeans + flats.
  • Making an effort to look well-groomed...I'm not really into sweats and I ALWAYS do my hair & make-up before leaving the house.
  • Loving my handbags and switching them out frequently.

Has your style changed over the years? What do you wear now that you never thought you would?

  1. I loved how you answered this! I think mine is a little too complicated and wordy!

    You look great Ella, I love your style so much! I should, it's very similar to mine ;) I think comfort and looking well groomed are really important. A beautiful handbag is a must as well. Loved this question, as it's very interesting!

  2. I'm loving these posts since it's so interesting to see how things have (or haven't) changed. Based on your collage, it looks like you gravitate towards a certain colour palette too!

    1. Wow - now that you mentioned it - there's definitely a lot of navy going on :-)

      I always love pink though I don't wear it as much these days - and cream will be a forever favorite!

    1. Thanks Schnelle - sometimes I find it easier to convey my thoughts when I break it down into bullet points LOL!

  6. Your clothes were worn much looser in the then. Clothes were much baggier then, but I love you in a fitted silhouette. Show off your fabulous figure!
