Personal Style

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Style Icon.”

I would say that my personal style is Stylish Casual. I generally wear practical, comfortable clothes, but know how to accessorize them so they wouldn’t seem plain. I rarely discriminate when it comes to clothes; I mix and match and try almost everything. I know what works for my body (I’m petite and pale).

Style Breakdown:

Clothes: Pants more than anything else, they’re the easiest to style in my opinion. Tops in light fabrics (I live in a very warm climate). In the winter, however, I lean towards leggings and over-sized sweaters. Dresses and skirts area worn less often, and I only wear shorts when traveling to certain areas.

Shoes: Flats (ballerina, sandals, oxfords, boots). When I do wear heels, they’re usually wedges. I would never stilettos unless I have a formal occasion like a wedding or my graduation.

Handbags: Satchels more than anything else, but I would wear cross-body bags only if they’re very small.

Accessories: Rings (I only wear real silver rings,  and I wear 2 -5 at a time. They are my most important accessory). Earrings (they vary between large and medium, I rarely wear studs). Necklaces (long chains or statement pieces, I rarely wear small delicate chains). Scarves (my favorite winter accessory, they really bring the outfit together). Hats and beanies (when I’m in the mood).

Hair: Au natural, braids or buns. I have medium-length black hair with natural curls.  I either leave it as it is (doesn’t always work in my favor), or I braid it (1 – 8 braids), or I just tie it in a messy bun (that’s when I really couldn’t be bothered). I only get a blow-out on special occasions.


Emma Watson Fashion

There is no question that Emma Watson has become a style icon as she grew up. A fan of hers since the early days of Harry Potter, when she was merely nine, I was amazed at her transformation over the years. The once bushy haired little girl has now become an inspiration to many regarding fashion choices. Here are some of my favorite outfits from simple clothes for a normal school day to fabulous gowns for the red carpet.
