One of the best things about having a blog is being able to look back at your old posts. Similarly, one of the worst things about having a blog is being able to look back at your old posts. Heh! I often get lost in my own archives. I just keep clicking and clicking... and cliiicking. Things change so rapidly, even if it doesn't really seem like it, its fun to look back and get a peek at what things used to be like. I have a love / hate relationship with my old outfit photos. I think a lot of them are kind of embarrassing but I'm happy to have documented them. I may look back now and think "Oh my goodness, what were you thinking?" but at the same time I feel very "Hah! You do you, girl!" about them too. It's kind of hard to explain but a lot of those old photos it's like I'm just looking at someone else.
Looking back at all those old photos has shown me how far my style has come in the past few years. I feel like I have a lot more of a consistent style, and that it's a lot more wearable. Instead of buying things that have a really awesome print or whatever but maybe aren't that practical I tend to purchase things that I know I'll be able to wear often, that are comfortable, and that truly fit my lifestyle. No more super short dressed just because the pattern rocks! These photos, in particular, I feel show off that new Kaylah style. Maybe I'll laugh at this outfit in another few years but I feel like it looks like it was put together by someone who has a pretty good idea of what works for them. It's cute, it's cozy, and that's all I care about.
I do have to admit, these boots are slightly out of my comfort zone. I'm kiiind of obsessed with them and how badass I feel in them though. I'm hoping it will be like my intro to lipstick where I felt a little bit strange wearing it the first handful of times but eventually it just became totally normal. I tend to feel more comfortable in shoes that I can run in. I don't know what that's about, it's not like I ever have to run anywhere. Maybe just a weird built in brain safety feature? I'm new-ish to heels of any sort and these are my very first pair of ankle boots but daaaang they look good. I don't know about you, but I feel like a BOSS walking in heels. I know, someone out there is snickering at me thinking these heels are high but they are for me! I'm currently eyeing up this pink pair of ankle boots. I've put together so many outfits in my head with them already.
