BLOUSE, SHORTS, SANDALS, CHLOE BAG: (c/o) Neiman Marcus

I recently read a quote from Isabel Marant in Porter Magazine that “fashion is not important…” that you have to “get dressed in what you love.” She went on to say that “your style will evolve” and that even when you find your “uniform… it will change.”

Murant, best known for her relaxed, cool and effortless designs, has always been a favorite of mine. But reading her say, “fashion doesn’t matter” made me fall in love with her even more. Looking back at my outfits – some good and some really bad – I can’t help but think that during those points in my life, I remained true to myself and made my outfits my own. I never really approached an outfit from, “this is trendy… I have to wear it.” It was always from a place of, “this is how I feel right now…” or “this is what I love.” Perhaps, that’s why my style has changed so much over the past two years since starting my blog!

Like Murant, I agree fashion is not about being trendy. It’s about comfort, ease and how you feel that that moment. It’s an instinct. Sometimes I wear boyfriend jeans and a t-shirt all day. Sometimes I throw on a dress and heels to feel pretty. And sometimes I just want to be comfortable and wear sandals to walk around town and go to the beach…

Isabel Marant did not design this outfit. It’s actually by Veronica Beard (another favorite) and Chloe, but it evokes just that – exactly how I felt that day. I wanted to wear something breathable and easy yet chic and classic enough for Palm Beach. I figured this is the kind of outfit you can throw in your suitcase and travel the world with. And lately, that’s been my gig – easy going looks that can be worn anywhere. Will it last forever? Who knows? Is it super trendy? I guess… maybe? But that’s the beauty of fashion. You can make it your own… Whether cool or easy going and free-spirited, fashion helps you tell that story – at that point in your life.

What does fashion mean to you?

Xo, Stephanie
