This week I’m diving back into Fashion Beauty Friend Friday! Today we’re talking about location and how it effects (or doesn’t effect) how I dress.
What part of the world do you blog from?
If you had to describe the overall mode of dress for where you live what would you say?
It’s hard to say since I just moved here. Like most American cities, you can tell who’s a tourist, who’s European, who’s hopelessly American (myself included). I observe most people on their way to work so it’s hard to gauge what they wear to work and what they wear in their free time.
Do you fit in with the status quo around you or do you break the mold?
When I used to live, the dress code was very much Southern Sorority girl where most women had their hair done, nails done, toe nails done, outfit pressed and matching. Despite all that, many women had very classic and timeless style. In Boston, there seems to be more freedom to mix and match whatever you want.
I think I fall somewhere in between. A few years ago, I would’ve said, “I break the mold!” Today I’m more interested in mixing textures and patterns, which probably makes my outfits less crazy.
If you have lived or traveled to another part of the country/world did your clothing choices evolve?
If you had to describe your style by naming a specific city, what would you be?
What a hard question! As much as I’d like to cut my roots from the South, I think my style will a be impacted by it at least for some months to come. With that in mind, I think I’m like Charleston. But one day I hope to be like Paris.
