What’s in your closet: Bringing back the blog

Caught up in the storm of college applications and the busyness of senior year, my blog took a backseat. However, “What’s in your closet” is back and better than ever. Starting with a bang, I decided to do my first post on my own closet. It’s weird to write about myself, so bear with me, but I am really excited to get back into the business of blogging and exploring some amazing closets. So fashion friends, here we go:

If you’re anything like me, you see an outfit — a perfectly accessorized outfit, complete with the perfect jacket, a wonderful statement piece, a pop of color and amazing shoes– and you wonder where in the world did that exceptionally dressed person get those amazing articles of clothing. And instead of asking like a normal person, you, and I, hit the stores in search of that beautiful item and return home without any luck. And if you’re similar to me, you sit in front of your closet every morning, next to a pile of no-gos, agonizing over what the heck you should wear to school. Those are the moments when you wish you had that really cool sweater that girl in your fourth hour class wore yesterday.

Let’s be real, life would literally be a million times easier if we all  just knew where our classmates get their awesome clothes. So, I did what any fashion lover and blogging enthusiast would do — I started a blog about Homestead students and their amazing closets.

I, if you can’t tell, love clothes — always have, always will.  I love looking at clothes, I love buying clothes and I freaking love wearing clothes. Sure, that sounds shallow and materialistic, but why wouldn’t you love the things that cover your body all day every day. Clothes only enhance the person wearing them, and as Coco Chanel (God bless her glamorous soul) said, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”

My style can be described as a mix of everything. One day, I can be found wearing head-to-toe J.Crew, and the next I could be rocking out a leather jacket and ripped boyfriend jeans — I don’t discriminate. My favorite places to shop include Forever 21 (90% of my clothes are from there), Free People, J.Crew, H&M, Revolve and Anthropologie.
