My Style: Wait … what is my style?!?

This is the first ‘My Style’ post for 2016. It’s not flashy nor exciting – it’s filled with questions. I’ve been doing these OOTD posts for almost two years. I’ve had some hits and some ‘oh, ok, that’s cute’ situations. Like, I have friends who tell me my look is #goals. For that, I’m thankful. But I still don’t feel like I’ve hit the pinnacle … Continue reading My Style: Wait … what is my style?!?
