Autumn, is that you darling?
New season, new mood.
At least that’s how I feel about my wardrobe at the moment. I’ve had this insane lust for shopping, and just this last week I’ve added some great basics as well as perfect accessories to my closet. My theory is this: I just recently ended my contract for a fashion designer (read here, if you want to know how I feel about my career at the moment), and over the four months I had been working with them I had also been wearing their clothes 90% of the time. Now, I’m the kind of person who gets outfit inspiration from many different sources. Someone on the street, a trip back to Denmark, my work environment, art, Instagram, the seasons changing. I can quickly change it up if I feel like I’m more of a minimalist one month or more of a SoHo-chic person the next month. Maybe my style isn’t a style, but more just garments I throw on depending on how I feel at the time?
After wearing one designer for a while, I had the urge to get some new things into my closet. Obviously still thinking about the environment, buying environmentally conscious clothing and second hand. But other than the fact, that my closet was now full of a single designer, whose clothes wasn’t necessarily all I would wear, the change of season also has a big influence on my fashion mood. So I went straight from thinking that I was now a minimalist woman with a classic style, not too many colors, not too much faff, to thinking “What’s hot? Let me wear that!” I would still say my style is very Scandinavian with clean lines, but I’ve added some fun elements like a sparkly headband, a tiger striped knit instead of a plain tee, and I got my nails done in a half leopard print half nude design. Somewhat fun, no?
My outfits are such a reflection of how I feel, and I’m so ready for new beginnings. Both in regards to the season (bring on colder degrees so I can wear my plaid jackets and cute scarfs), but also in regards to my career. I’m honestly so excited to see what the last part of this year has in store for me. God knows, it’s been a struggle in 2019, but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, so I choose to learn from this and get stronger. In a cute outfit.
