finding your dress code

PIN IT

One of my favorite things about fashion blogging (and really, just fashion in general), is getting to share my personal style with you guys, and get to know other people’s personal style as well. Whenever people ask to describe ‘my style’…I typically say it’s simple and feminine with a little boho twist. (Which btw, sums is this cold shoulder top perfectly IMO!)

I think someone’s ‘personal style’ depends on their personality and things they’re drawn too…but I also think your personal style, or your dress code even, depends on your life and your lifestyle. Because we live in Colorado now (and because it’s my personality!) I like to keep my dress code pretty casual 99% of the time. Yes, I love fashion and shopping and enjoy looking my best…but I also love being comfortable and casual! Whether that’s for running errands, grabbing lunch with Michael, or taking Beau to the park.

I think it’s so important when you’re shopping, to consider what your lifestyle and what your ‘dress code’ is. By no means should that box you into only buying one color or one style…but when you buy things according to your lifestyle and your dress code…you will get SO much more use out of it, because it fits seamlessly into your everyday life!

One thing I love about Express is that they have options to fit nearly ANY lifestyle or any dress code, at a super budget friendly price point. I personally live in denim shorts during the spring and summer, and snagged these high-waisted denim shorts for only $50! Since I got them about 2 weeks ago I’ve worn them with at least 10 different tops in my wardrobe, because they 100% fit into my every day lifestyle. Whether your style is simple, boho, glam, or super chic…Express really does have adorable product to fit any of those styles!

In case you’re wondering how to figure out what your ‘dress code’ is…I’ll give you an example. When I first saw this cold shoulder top I felt like it was MADE for me! I loved the embroidery and the stripes, and knew I would get so much use out of it (not to mention the price was super reasonable)! When you find pieces like that…BUY them! Because you will feel your best in it and wear it over and over again!

A few other pieces from Express that fit into my dress code:

So, for me…if it’s casual, comfortable, feminine, and/or boho, and fits into my lifestyle…you better believe I’ll be adding it to my wardrobe. Especially when it’s budget friendly!
