Finding My Style du Jour
My head has been in the hair and skincare clouds, spending my time (and money) hunting products and cultivating routines. But, there's also other reasons I haven't been feeling like a super fashionista. Recently, I've been honoring my roots - aka fifteen year old Quinn.
I spent most of my life in a (school) uniform and was a dancer growing up, which meant everyone wearing the same costumes. But unlike everyone else, I kind of liked it. Wearing a uniform streamlined my life. It allowed me to let other things - my hair, my makeup, or better yet, my personality, to 'define' me. Once I could wear what I wanted, I did have some fun with it. I made (sometimes am still making...) weird choices that I'm not always proud of, but at one point loved.
The older I get, the more I'm falling back into that 'uniform' mode, which might just mean that I've found 'my style.' Or my style du jour. Who's to say?
I've been loving spandex mini skirts with tees or terribly oversized ugly jeans with tank tops. I don't know where my love of things too tight or too loose is coming from lately, but I'm willing to explore these avenues. There's just something about choosing a pair of hideous jeans that makes me feel so in control. (My advice for comfy jeans is not to break them in, just order them 1-2 sizes bigger than your typical)
