I’ve been learning a lot about myself this past year, including learning more about my personal style. At the beginning of the year, my closet was filled with floral maxi dresses, pastel tops, and ripped up jeans. But lately, I’ve been leaning toward a simpler wardrobe, filled with basic pieces that I’ve never had the courage to wear before.
