Personal style is self-expression without saying a word. Being who you are no matter what event or situation you might find yourself in. We all have those “no one can stop me” days when things just click; you’re feeling beautiful and confident– like the best version of yourself. Take note of what you’re wearing, these are the outfits that embody your true personal style and serve as a great foundation for developing a better understanding of your personal style and also serve as inspiration for style updates.
