Summers Past

2014
Last summer I was obsessed with red, white and blue. Like, I think about 95% of my outfits were within this color scheme. Full skirts and high-waisted shorts were a strong consistency and I was always drawn straight towards vintage-styles. I'll probably forever be obsessed with nautical, vintage themed outfits and clothing but the summer of 2014 was all about both of these things. My go-to shopping spots were LOFT, Express, Ruche, Jack Wills and local boutiques. 


2013
Dresses, dresses, dresses. I was so dressed up all the time this summer. Perhaps it's because it was before I moved to Philadelphia permanently and I would spend the summer driving around instead of biking and walking like I do now. It's easier to wear heels and shorter dresses when you're not constantly on the move. Also, look at those cowboy boots! This was probably the last summer I ever wore those. My go-to shopping spots were Urban Outfitters, Francesca's, Target and New York & Company. 

2012
My first summer after living in a city for the first time for school! I was feeling super experimental this summer. Looking at these past photos from my blog, I don't even see much of a theme from this summer other than the constant reoccurrence of my antique necklace collection (wow - am I 80 years old?) I was missing the city this summer while I was home and was constantly pushing myself to mix patterns/textures and styles. My go-to shopping spots were flea markets, Pac-Sun, H&M, Target and Gap.

2011
Oh, I remember this summer so well even though it feels like lifetimes ago! It was the summer after graduating from high school and I hadn't really been to Philadelphia or a big city yet! My only sources of inspiration were through screens thanks to street style photography and other fashion bloggers. As you can see, I've always tried to incorporate a sort of vintage influence in my outfit choices. My go-to shopping spots were H&M, Forever 21, American Eagle and Wet Seal. 

What kind of changes have you seen in your personal style these last few years? It's easy to feel embarrassed about past fashion decisions but remember - what is fashion and personal style without room for growth and the ability to experiment and change?

  6. What a fantastic post idea! It's always so interesting to see how our styles evolve over the years. Love how you tied in your style with your changing locations as well... I definitely see a correlation between the two. When I went off to NYC for school, my typical Californian outfits suddenly became all-black and leather, definitely two things I thought I'd never wear here in LA!

    I think you sum it pretty well in the ending. While we will have some rather embarassing fashion phases, it'll only teach us to experiment and be more open-minded when it comes to our personal style. I definitely regret my Abercrombie and Juicy Couture obession back in middle school, but it also makes me feel so nostalgic!
