my style

how to replicate blogger style re/done leandra medine jeans the august diaries my style redone jeans, bum

I’ve been very into minimalism lately and seem to have temporarily forgotten about my retro tendency. My style is multi-faceted (as is my personality 🙂 ), and very much depends on my mood. What have I been reading? Watching? Looking at online or in print? As much as I love neutrals and clean lines, I can’t resist a good 70’s-inspired piece and this top reminded me of that. Which got me thinking about what would actually define my style.

I started this blog years ago and my style has grown so much since then (sometimes I want to go back in time and be like “Don’t wear that!”). It’s changed as I’ve started to realize and shape who I am, what I like and what I want out of life and that’s something that I love about fashion + style. Style is truly a visual interpretation/reflection/perception of who you are.

I would describe my style as follows:
– simple
– effortless (or strive to be, anyway)
– minimal
– neutral
– 70’s-inspired
– a bit edgy

Do you you think that’s accurate? I’m always curious how others would describe it. On that note, what is your style? Email me, Instagram me, Snap me or let me know in the comments! I’d love to know.

    Nice to see how you describe your own style. I think sometimes people don’t like to put words to their style because they don’t want to feel like they are putting themselves in a box that people hold them to. Style evolves!

    Fabulous look as always, Jill! I love your style so much…I think because it reflects exactly what I’ve realized I love when it comes to personal style. I feel the same way about how my blog has helped my style evolve to accurately represent who I am. I would describe my style very similar to the way you’ve described yours here. I think I may add relaxed classic to my description, but definitely effortless, simple, minimalist!
    I know I’ve mentioned before that I don’t read too many blogs any more and I’m sort of at a cross roads in deciding if I want to continue blogging myself. The August Diaries is still a blog I look forward to reading, always. I come away inspired by your style, your genuine & honest perspective…and I can truly identify with your style & values. Every look & post is spot on in my opinion. Don’t change a thing girl!
    XO! Gina
