hot pink dress

I think we all go through different style “cycles” in our lives, and this happy hot pink number is totally screaming early 20’s Kat. In college I was all about bright colors, 87 bracelets and fun patterns. As I’ve gotten older, my closet has slowly shifted to neutrals, solids and versatile pieces. The best part? There’s nothing wrong with either (and you can have both!).

I think it’s amazing when ladies can commit to a “style.” My sister struggles with finding her style niche, and I always tell her to channel her favorite celebrity style. Envision what they are usually seen wearing when sifting through your closet. Similarly I’m always coming to her with balanced eating (being able to eat one Oreo instead of 8) because she’s the dietician… so we have quite different talents! Speaking of hers, if you want to see my interview with her on her field of work you can check that out here.

BUT, back to the clothes – I can’t really commit to the neutral girl or the neon girl… I choose to be both. Building a wardrobe on versatile neutrals is always smart, but having some bright and happy pieces in your closet are never a bad idea.

Have you committed to a certain “style” or are you all over the map like me? I’d love to hear… and it would help me put together looks for you guys! Thank you so much for reading! XO –

    1. Totally agree – if you have fun with it, why limit yourself? BUT if you don’t have fun playing in your closet a “style icon” can be super helpful!

  1. So obsessed with this pretty dress! The color is perfect and I love the ruffles! Also, I don’t have a clue as to what my style is… it changes daily haha! I’ve come to embrace it and like you said, there’s nothing wrong with that!


  2. Obsessed with this bright and chic look! I just fill my closest with pieces I truly love whether they’re bright, neutral, bold, or subtle. It’s great to have a single “style”, and maybe I’m a tad bit jealous of all the completely neutral gals who can just grab a shirt and pants from their closet with their eyes closed and any combination they pick would match, BUT I also really love being able to have fun with my style and I appreciate the challenge of discovering the many different “personalities” that a single piece can emulate through imaginative styling.

    I realize that you have to stay true to your own style, but I really enjoy seeing fun and unique looks like this one! It’s nice to see a pop of pink in my “50 shades of grey” Instagram feed. ?

    1. I couldn’t agree more with everything you said! It sounds like you have great style so you don’t need to keep yourself in any box. PS – I really appreciate your feedback about color. I never thought about that but I can see how it would be refreshing!

  3. Totally have a hard time picking a style!! Can’t decide if I like the “JCrew, put together look” or the atlesisure look. Ugh, struggles!!
