Urban Wear



Dress / Belt: H&M
Jacket: Forever21
Shoes: Nike
Sunglasses / Bag: Aldo 

     When Kim Kardashian dyed her hair blonde, although I wasn’t a fan, I had to applaud her for taking such a style risk. If you want to dye your hair platinum blonde, go for it. Whether it’s your hair, body, or clothes, I’m all for being original and finding your own personal style. I think it’s really important that if a person is wearing something that is different  from the “norm,” we don’t stick them on a worst- dressed list or pick apart their outfit live on national television (I’m looking at you fashion police)!  I decided to talk about this now, because lately I’ve been over hearing people saying rude things about others who are dressed differently in public. I’ve been seeing too many Instagram comments on other blogger’s photos saying “This is ugly”, “I would never wear this”, etc. 

At this point, you’re probably wondering if I think everything is fashionable.  No, I’m absolutely not saying or agreeing to that. There are some really hideous clothes out there, but I give props to someone for liking an outfit that’s very different and for being brave enough to wear it in public, and making that piece their own. The truth is that no one has the same style. I may love Birkenstocks and you may think they remind you of your grandfather’s wardrobe. You may love wide-legged jeans and I may think they look like balloons stuck up your ankles. That just how personal style works, and I think it’s wrong to make fun of anyone for how they dress.

     You only live once, so mix every print and pattern in the world, mix different trends, play with your style, and experiment with what you like. Don’t conform to what’s normal because copying someone else’s look exactly is never in style. I hope this encourages you to play with your style and figure out what YOU like. 

     How would you define your personal style?

    1. This is so true! If you never take any risks and experiment, you won't know what you like and looks good on you. Thanks so much Stephanie!

  3. I hate it when people make fun of how others dress, style can be a very personal thing. I really love your outfit anyway, the Nikes and dress go together so well!

  4. Everyone should wear what he or she likes and feels comfortable in and others shouldn't judge. I never understand why people judge other peoples outfits, what is the point? You're not the one wearing it. Love what you're wearing btw :)

  5. Great outfit Katie, I really love the fun print on your H&M dress. And I agree, fashion is about taking risks and truly finding your voice amidst all the trends that come and go. I would say my style is cool and edgy with a bit of quirkiness but every now and then I like to push boundaries by trying out different looks :) Great post my dear :) xo~ Lena

  7. Personal style really means so much, sometimes I do not even understand it. I might wear an outfit one day and then wonder what I was thinking the next week. It is all about being happy and confident in yourself at that moment and looking toward the future!
