Have you ever wondered why we like the things we actually like!? I know, what kind of a weird question is that!? What are you even talking about exactly you might be asking!? Think about it about for a moment, take clothes for a example, we all have our own type of style, some of us like a more modern look, while others prefer a more vintage timeless look, such as myself more on the vintage side however!! Where does that come from!? I mean sure you might say it’s just we’re drawn to, it just catches out, that’s true…..but what causes us to be drawn to them in the first place!?
It’s not like we know what are style is going to be automatically, we get our inspiration from somewhere once we’re old enough to know what we like, with me I like more of a vintage look when it comes to my style in what I wear, I like feeling comfortable, but I also like clothes that give me that Flowy-ness that I need and love, to describe it better, my style is more 70’s inspired, I like to think of it as hippy/bohemian chic in a way with a hint of country style added!!
Now I don’t know why exactly I prefer it, it’s just something I’ve always been drawn to, something I’ve always felt fitted me in a sense, now what does this have to do with the title, we’ll I always find myself wondering why it is we’re drawn to the things we’re pulled towards naturally and I like to think that it has something to do with who we were or might’ve been before this lifetime that we’re in now…..crazy thought I know, this isn’t the first time I have thought of something like this and believe me it won’t be the last haha!!
It’s just interesting that’s all, when it comes to our sense of style, the way we carry ourselves and even the music we listen to they all come from somewhere and they all give us different feelings, why we feel them and where they come from exactly, it can get you thinking, okay maybe not everyone…..but if you’re the type to think about random stuff like I do then maybe this applies to you, maybe it doesn’t!! I just feel a lot of what we are has to come from somewhere beyond ourselves, small or not…..
The way I am and how I have carried myself so far, the way I feel, is what I feel is 70’s…I am a natural wanderer, I like indie style music (I love music in general, but indie style music is one of my favorites) I daydream 95 percent of the time if not mostly (hence the inspiration for this blog) and I like being in nature and enjoying scenery!! Now that may not actually mean anything involving 70’s I know, but I always felt 70’s vibe from myself it’s just something I gravitate towards without even realizing it, I am obsessed let’s face it…..now that said,
I have embraced more things out of that realm, staying on attire for a moment…..I have some clothes that don’t really say 70’s, I have this one shirt that I bought 2 years ago or something, it’s an all black lace shirt, it’s got long sleeves to it and the neck part is similar to a turtle neck, but isn’t, I didn’t know how else to explain it, don’t worry I looked it up, apparently It’s called a ruffled mock neck…..what I was getting at is, that was out of my comfort zone, lace is something I never really wear often and for me to see that and say “Hey I like this” knowing myself that it was something I didn’t think I would ever be drawn to, but it was, it was the style of it I liked and why I guess I decided to buy it, it was different than my usual everyday kind of style….
I’m sure this post doesn’t even seem like it goes with what I was originally talking about, but I will do my best to get back on track here…..sheesh who knew I’d talk this much about style…..this is new even for me lol!! My point is everything that we are and have yet to become…..was and will be inspired by something, everything that I am at this point in time and who I’ve felt for a very long time I was transforming into, stems from a 70’s point in time if that makes sense, hopefully it does, but if it doesn’t that’s okay…..even though I was born in 90’s, I feel 70’s in a sense of character and my ways of being, I don’t know about everything else in the 70’s, but as far as clothing as we talked about for like a half hour or so….it’s the kind of thing I like!!
On the other hand….I have also discovered some of my style may also come from a point in time between the 30s, 50s, and slight 60s…..if we’re going more modern like…..I am between 80s casual and 90s which works because 90’s was the era I was born in….this is the first time I ever wrote a whole post about style….I’m a little confused to why that happened, but hey hopefully it made for a good post!!
What’s your soul era and what era do you think your style fits in!?
All The Love ❤ ❤
