My New Style Identity

Mixing casual wear with formal wear.

Last week I requested on my Instagram page for my readers to be a bit patient with me as things will be changing here at JMTR. I think I confused some of you so let me clarify. We’re not moving; we’re not quitting again! I have, however, discovered my  style identity and will be wearing and posting only those pieces that fit into that mold. Now, of course, I still have a ton of clothes that were sent to me that I have yet to wear on the blog- in those instances my outfit might not look like my “new” style, but I do think that within one month I’ll be properly adjusted.

So what is my style identity you might ask? It’s hard to really define it. I’d say modest and sophisticated and corporate and fashion forward? Think Michelle Obama, Extra Petite, Victoria Beckham, Brooklyn Blonde, and Miroslava Duma all in one (pictures below). Since I’ve personally defined my style, I’ve been consumed with spring cleaning and trips to my tailor and shoe cobbler. That also means frequent trips to Buffalo Exchange, where I sold a bunch of clothes and got this Alice & Olivia blazer and sunglasses (pictured above) for free– well sort of. If you’re not familiar with Buffalo Exchange and shopping for free- refer to my previous post.

Anyway, much love to you all for the support thus far. See you tomorrow for a Testimony Tuesday post.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your new style. In the meantime, I’m loving those shades and the jacket, unfortunately we rarely wear cameo prints over here in Nigeria because if you get caught by a soldier, you could be in big trouble, its not funny actually.

    having followed you for a long time, I’ve noticed your style has changed quite gradually but significantly in the last 8 months or so. … it’s more I guess structured, and more chic, and I’m liking it 🙂
