So, I’m not the most stylish and trendy blogger on the internet but, I do love to play in my closet from time to time. I tend to successfully go out of the house looking cute on the weekends, and even for class at times (as long as it isn’t an 8 am). But as I get older I begin to wonder about my personal style. Do I need one? Do I already have one? If I do what exactly is it?
After some evaluation I came to the conclusion that I do have a personal style that’s still developing but already presents itself often. The best word to describe it is “preppy”. I love turtlenecks, plaid, and skirts. I like to feel girly and proper but I also have a serious addiction to leather! I love a leather skirt or jacket, I even look at leather dresses occasionally I just am never bold enough to go through with it. When it comes to shoes I’m obsessed with rocking heels, whether it’s a bootie, a pump, a sandal.
If I had to identify a style inspiration it is definitely Whitley Gilbert from A Different World, but maybe not as prim and proper every day. I also like to have fun with my clothes or dress down. I love a sweatshirt and a pair of tennis shoes, and I live by my oversized denim jacket, Doc Martens, and black lipstick.
The most important thing about finding your style is being comfortable and rocking it. If you look good you definitely feel good. That’s why I don’t think it’s neccesary to always stick to the status quo. I love a slip dress with a t-shirt underneath or an oversized romper.
Fashion should be fun, you should feel good in what you wear. What is your personal style? Who is your style inspiration? Let me know in the comments and to see more of my style journey follow my Instagram @syd.thekid and on Twitter @itsprincesssyd_.

My personal style is preppy too! I love plaid skirts and anything with collars!
I love your style
I love wearing clothes with abstract patterns and my chelsea boots! I pretty much wear whatever I feel comfortable in but also confident!
Your style sounds so fun!
Lovely! My style depends on the mood. My closest has a bit of everything lol
Black is my go-to color and I absolutely love a nice pair of boots! I’m slowly starting to get into skirts, but jeans are definitely a part of my style!
Very well written I love your style 🙂
My style is anything BCBG – feminine classics with a modern-day edge to it. But, like you, I definitely like to switch it up every now and then. 🙂
I love the pants suite! I like things that are comfy but still cute.
I love your style, you are right the best thing to do is to rock it! I too don’t think I could pull off a leather dress… but hey maybe one day!
This is such an important message in the fashion blogging world. It’s so easy to compare ourselves to the best and the thinnest, but you look AMAZING because you obviously feel good in what you’re wearing. Thanks for the inspiration!
Thanks so much! When you feel good you look good!
I’ve just recently come into my own in terms of fashion and style and I –like you– found inspiration in celebrities. I like a more laid-back style, but I also like pops of formality in some places.
Love your style girl! I like the skirt combos especially paired with the black leather booties! It gives the preppy look an edge which I love!
I love adding a little grunge or edge to my style! Thanks for noticing
I love your style. Personal style is so important because it really is a big part of who we are. I always laugh at my own closet – which is ever being rehauled. My personal style seems to have clashed together three unlikely stereotypes of 90’s grunge, bohemian hippie, and work from home momma. They all sound so opposite but for me, it works and I get compliments on my appearance all of the time. I love the pics you shares; you really are working your style!
Thank you so much!
So cute! I’d love to rock more patterns! You’re killing it!
this is exactly how i found mine! being comfortable and i made sure that my personality is there too!
I used to think finding personal style wasn’t important, but as i’m getting older I realize that it actually is! How you dress and present yourself to the world does hold value, and the truth is, your personal style will show itself even when you don’t try. But that isn’t always a good thing! I think we should be thoughtful and put a little effort into our style! Personally, I also love preppy clothes, especially collared shirts. I also love vintage 1920s-50s inspired clothes..and then I love edgy more “rocker/tomeboy/menswear” inspired clothes. Just depends on how i’m feeing that day I guess, I feel my style is totally random but i’m working on developing it so that it makes sense for me!
How you present yourself is how you’re perceived for sure but I also think style is an expression of self that should always be present
Last year is all about me purging my closet and getting rid of the items that didn’t reflect my style. I absolutely love style. You should check of prepford wife. She has a preppy style too.
I definitely will check her out!
I love your style! When you find a look you love, you show up differently in life and it’s so awesome
Whitley Gilbert is an excellent example! I loved her style! I think I’m real into the young jada Pickett type style! However, my own personal style? Im still trying to figure that out as of right now. Trying to see what works for my body! Your style however is CUTE! Preppy works for you! Great pictures hun! Love!
Thanks so much! I love young jada too but good luck on your style journey I know you’ll discover it soon.
I’m loving your style. What you said about “you should feel good in what you wear” is so true. When you look good, you definitely feel good. I can conquer the world when my outfit is on point and my hair is right. Take care.
I am loving leather looks too, recently!! I’d probably describe my style as comfy-chic, hahah Xx
Girl you’re so cute! I loved this so much!!
