shirt, jeans, scarf: H&M; ring: Primark

I'm such a bad blogger recently. Sorry!

It's partly because I'm feeling rather uninspired recently. I'm not sure whether this is due to the everlasting winter (I mean, there are only so many outfits you can build from jeans and a warm sweater) or to a general problem with deciding on what I want to wear.
I recently talked about style with some of my friends. Not in an abstract way like "what is good style versus bad style". But in terms of personal style. You know, that signature style some people seem to have and others are lacking.
Personally, I don't think I have a signature style yet. I'm still experimenting. Which is why one day you will find me wearing an all-black outfit topped off with lots of studs, claw bracelet and smokey eyes, while the next day I might be wearing a white lace dress with middle parted hair and hippie-esque accesoires.
Nevertheless I have recently been thinking that it would be a lot easier to dress, if I wasn't jumping through styles that much. Not to mention that, as you get older, you need to be more aware of what you want to express through your clothes.
I have been thinking about making a series of posts on this topic, and would love to hear what you think about that. Would you be interrested?

Wow, this must have been my longest written post ever ;)

Personally, I think creating your own style is quite hard since your really have to identify with every single piece you buy. The good part is you pick only the things you really like in a store and do not spend hours putting on different outfits - as well you avoid these typical bad buys. For me, I know that I'd never wear a flower print dress for example and so I'll never buy one (again). Donna Karan once said great style was the possibility to mix the clothes you own in many different ways and being able to wear them at any occassion, ranging from work to having cocktails.
Good luck! :-)

Thanks, love!
I wish I was Donna Karen, then! Because right now I feel like throwing out half of my clothes!
