When searching for something on Google or any shopping website, it is imperative to use keywords if we are ever going to locate our item. Similarly, using keywords to define our personal style helps us to feel authentic in the clothing and accessories we purchase.
As we consider similar items, it helps to remember our keywords in choosing the correct elements. For example, plain white shirts can be oversized, soft, slouchy, with dropped shoulders, or crisp with perfectly fitting shoulder seams and a slim body, or short and boxy with cropped silhouettes.
I’ll share my keywords as examples. When I shop for new items, my style priorities are structured, modern, and elevated. If something is too relaxed, casual, or loose-fitting, it always lands in the donation bag. I now buy fewer items but ones that suit my personality better so that they get used for years instead of once.
Neutral colors and jewel tones appeal to me and fit with my coloring. Wearing colors that flatter you in tone and intensity helps you look well-rested and healthy. For example, I look tired and unwell when I wear an ivory instead of a white shirt. Warm colors emphasize the bags and shadows under my eyes, making my skin look sallow. Warm colors have a golden tone, whereas cool colors have a blue undertone.
Always add personality with accessories and details. Classic, comfortable, and minimal need not be boring. The light linen shirt (here) would not be warm enough if the air conditioning were blasting in the restaurant. The wrap is a cotton swim pareo (similar here). The bag (similar here) repeats the same watermelon colors in the wrap and my lip color. The Vibrant: Blue Red lipstick is here. The sunglasses are here.
High-waist jeans with flare legs flatter my shape, but long tops have too much fabric to tuck in, and the proportions aren’t right. The soft, lightweight jeans are here. The shoes are by Vince Camuto a couple of years ago.
After the incisions from surgery heal, treatments for the breast cancer will begin in about four to six weeks. The removed lymph node did not contain cancer cells, which was a tremendous relief. Thank you again for your kind words.
