What Three Words Define Your Style?

How Do You Define Your Style?

This is a question I’ve thought a lot about, especially lately. I’ve always been one to invest in bags and shoes and pick key wardrobe pieces that can carry me a long way. That said, I was beyond thrilled when Becca Shady, the founder and designer of Tutu Moi, reached out to me about a Fall/Holiday photoshoot in collaboration with Neiman Marcus.

Tutu Moi’s skirts are exactly the type of key pieces that I love to pair with the basics in my closet to instantly make a statement. I can’t wait to show you how I styled the tutus and take you behind the scenes of the shoot this Wednesday, but until then I’ll share how I approached picking my looks.

It started with a little exercise on defining my current style. I pulled a lot of magazine tears (old school!) and wrote down all the common words that spoke to me. After reviewing all of the words, I was able to narrow my style to the following three and I picked looks that support each word individually (though there is definite carryover!).

Sophisticated

The first look I picked is a high-low skirt and is a beautiful wine color (!). I paired it with champagne colored neutrals on top and on my feet. It will be PERFECT for the holiday season. I hope we’re invited to a few parties so I can wear this outfit multiple times. While I can’t show you the look just yet, here are the shoes I’m wearing.

Feminine

The girliest of the looks is a shorter skirt and pulls in some of my favorite blush tones. I’ll also be doing some mommy-and-me shots with Elle, so I made sure that this outfit leaves me with plenty of room to move. Here’s the jacket I’m wearing with this outfit.

Classic with a Twist

The final outfit is black-on-black. I am beyond exited to wear these shoes and will be throwing this jacket over my shoulders…just the type of twist I love.

Hope you’ll tune in on Wednesday to see how the shoot goes and check back for the full looks later this fall!

      It’s Tibi from a few years ago! I’ll keep my eyes out for something similar.
