Flowers don't worry about how the're going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.

When the weather goes cuckoo, a dress and a cardigan are your best buddies. You never know when it's going to rain, but since you have a meeting to get to, you have to look decently presentable. I never compromise my personality in dressing up. Whenever I want to go girly, I explicitly do so by donning a dainty patterned dress like this one from Mossimo. Paired with a sheer cardigan of sorts (which keeps me surprisingly warm despite its translucent appearance), and a pink and mauve cap-toe flats from Parisian, this ensemble just gave me the right amount of morale boost for an easy-peasy day up ahead.
Over the years, I've come to realize, thanks to my punk core and goth days, that experimenting with style is never a bad thing. We go through phases and it's all part of the growth process. Eventually, we find our niche, but it doesn't mean that the fun ends there. It's always fun to try new things and incorporate them into what's in your comfort zone -- just to keep things fresh.
If you ask me now what my style is, I probably can't give you a single word to nail it down. That's the fun part! I dress according to how I feel or what inspired me that day or what the music made me think of! It really varies. Of course, I also take into consideration the comfort factor. Since commuting is a big part of my daily schedule (too lazy to drive!), I aim to dress appropriately, with many factors being considered -- the travel time, the commute, the weather, the event or situation I'm going to, and so on.
At the end of the day, just have fun with it! Fashion is a philosophy. Every time you step out in a certain outfit, you let people know of your very own kind of story, even for just that day. You make a statement, an expression of things that mere words cannot contain. Make sure it's a story worth telling. Make sure it's worth your own while. ;)
