Style for me has never been about following trends or wearing the latest craze in fashion. I’m not saying I avoid clothes that are cool at that moment, no. I do buy them however I find that those items will sit in my closet until that trend blows over. Take this tropical print two-piece that for example, I have had this two-piece for over two years and had never worn it together. I’ve worn the top with a pair of jeans once, but that was it. I’m obsessed with it now but at the time I just thought it looked cute. So, my advice to people like would be don’t be discouraged by trends, embrace them however you don’t have to feel pressured to wear right that moment when they are “cool” the timing is totally up you, you decide when they are cool enough to wear. That way your style will always remain yours not just dictated by trends.
