Style of One's Own: First Post!

Hello world! I'm Lauren. waves I'm 24 and I live in beautiful California. I have a serious passion for style and all things girly. I believe that you do not have to spend a lot of money to put together a fantastic wardrobe. I believe that every girl can be stylish regardless of age, size, or financial status.

One of my 2013 goals is to start a blog to share my passion and my journey of developing a style of one's own. You see, it was only last year that I really started to develop a style. My style prior to last year consisted of pants (jeans or khakis) and simple, neutral colored t-shirts. Most of what I owned was unflattering. It wasn't so horrible that you'd ever see me on What Not To Wear, but certainly I was very plain jane with no distinct style. Yet I've always admired those girls who look effortlessly put together and stylish.

Between December of 2011 and spring of 2012 I lost weight (two sizes!) and got into my ideal shape. I decided, hey, why can't I be one of those stylish girls? What's keeping me from changing my style? I had to buy new clothes anyway. So I slowly redid my wardrobe and started paying attention to what worked on other ladies. I read fashion books, blogs, magazines, you name it. For the first time I really put effort into layering and mixing and matching.

I had a little moment of victory when my boyfriend looked over my shoulder while I was reading a fashion blog on my iPad and said, "I can definitely see your style in those looks." Me? Style? :) Why thank you!

You can read more about my story here. Here's to a new year and continuing to develop a style of my own!
