in another month we'll be celebrating the end of another decade, which leads me to contemplate how my personal style has evolved over the past 10 years. eesh...can it really be 10 years? but i think the perfect inspiration for how i feel like my style has evolved is the lovely Sofia Coppola.
i've admired her style for some time now, and i really love how there's always an ease and quiet grace about how she carries herself. simple. unadorned. and feminine but not in an obvious way. and! she's known for wearing flats or mini heels to even the most black-tie events.
over this past year, i've been defaulting to a uniform of sorts - jeans, boots, leather jacket, tees. i think after the past 3 years of exploring, discovering, and experimenting, i've finally arrived at an articulation of my personal style. there is finally a consistency in what i gravitate towards, and what i end up buying. i can also say that after a yearlong process of slow editing, my wardrobe has finally been pared down to a well-curated collection of pieces. now if i can just keep reminding myself to break in those a.p.c. raw jeans...
what about you? what are your december style inspirations? where has your style journey landed you after a decade?
p.s. - i'm also obsessed with those jeans SC is wearing in the third and last photos. so strange, i know, given that it's almost an afterthought in the shots. but that FIT...ahh, that's my idea of the perfect jean that i'll always reach for, and always wear stylishly...i know SC herself is a devotee of Acne jeans. i'm hoping that after another 4 months or so of breaking in my a.p.c.s that they'll fit somewhat similarly. any suggestions?
