Annebeth 's thoughts:

Sometimes it can be very nice to dress like a little schoolboy. A big part of finding true style is finding looks that go with your personality, your figure and your look. The most stylish girls I know are girls that have a real “look”. Hair, make up, facial features, outfit: once it clicks, you know. You’ll feel like you found yourself, and people will turn their heads if you walk by because you’ll look like some enigmatic movie character.
Now, I’m not pretending I’ve found my style, but I do know what sort of looks work for me, and how I should wear a certain outfit. Maybe I just overthink things, but when I grab this short shirtdress, I immediately go for a boyish/college/all American look with windswept hair, oxford boots and a loose sweater to create that look. Fresh faced make up with a tiny bit of lipgloss and some mascara: hair and make up should look like you’ve been taking a walk with your hair blowing in the wind. Because I have skinny legs and not that much hip- or boobage, an androgynous look works for me. What also works: innocent, young, girly looks. These are the type of looks that I feel “work” on me, and the looks that make me feel like I look good. If I have to pick an era, it would be the sixties.
But I also know what sort of looks aren’t my thing: hard, fierce looks, lots of leather, eighties inspirations, anything edgy-sexy. I might be able to pull these off based on my figure, but it just doesn’t match my personality and I would feel awkward wearing them.
Do you have a clear image in your mind with regards to what “works” for you? Do you have a look you strive for?

PS: I’m getting my hair cut tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m going for slightly shorter than my hair is now, that way I can go a while without a new haircut (I’m really lazy and cheap). And I’m getting OMBRE done!!!!!!! I’m super excited. Wish me luck!

PPS: CONGRATS to Angiekje for going to NYFW!!!!!!! awesomeness!!!!

Love love love this outift, it works so well for you! You look fantastic and I can't wait to see your new 'do! I love ombre hair! I want to get it done myself but I'm not sure how well it would look on light blond hair :( I think it will look amazing for you, though-very Alexa Chung.

I'm not sure I could say anything about this outfit that different than what's already been said, but this outfit makes me happy. I'm also in the process of finding "my style." I've sort of figured out what I don't like on me, but that's as far as I've gotten. Oh, and I like your new haircut (from your newest picture)-- it;s really fun.

Love this! That sweater is awesome and I love your boots :D I still haven't settled on a specific sort of style myself... I love playing around! I tend to go for skirts and nipped-in waists, but I sometimes wear pants and androgynous styles anyway! I range alll over the place from girly to edgy, although less edgy than even just a year ago ;) Your style is amazing, you work every look you wear!
