Embracing the foreign that I call home now.
Since moving to the UK, specifically London, with it’s diverse community primarily made up of Europeans, I found myself lost in my personal style. Before moving out here, I purged and donated most of my clothes only having a few basics and many, many business formal clothes. I needed to start my closet new and I knew I wanted to invest in pieces and focus on classics. My style was refining, but clearly stepping foot on the concrete catwalk that is London, I found myself a bit estranged from the sartorial world.
I knew it was time to refine and perfect the closet. Spending a tad more, but on a bit less. And what I fell in love with was the neutral color palette, the dainty silhouettes, the quasi careless type look that I saw most of London draped in. I want pieces that can take me from Sunday brunch to weekend meetings and evening drinks. And so, the perfect blazer against a blanket silk scarf, is a look that I have coveted for my first true European look.
A European look to me entails layers, some sort of statement accessory like earings or a scarf, there’s definitely a blazer involved sometimes, and it’s just very easy going and effortlessly put together.
