The Evolution of My Style + Giveaway
Buckle up everybody, this is about to be a wild ride.
One of the best compliments people have been giving me lately is that they love my style, but if I’m being honest, I didn’t really have a style until recently. So, I wanted to take you back in time with me to show you a little glimpse into how my style has changed over the years and brought me to where I am now as an adult(ish) woman.
Also stay tuned to the end for a giveaway!! Woot woot!
Middle School Katie: The Librarian
Here we go. All you really need to know is that I was dubbed a ‘librarian’ by my family back in the day, not because of my book obsession but for my style. You can imagine me pulling my lace camis out from underneath my t-shirts, paired with some bermuda shorts, bifocals and a half-up hairdo. Can I help you find the non-fiction section?
High School Katie: The Butterfly Stage
Thankfully, things changed when I got to high school. I should mention that I grew 4 inches my first year (thanks to my oh so glamorous hypothyroid diagnosis) which meant that clothes started to fit me a bit better. My besties refer to this as ‘the butterfly stage’ aka when I started my glow-up. I started to throw on a swipe of mascara, straightened my hair occasionally and started to wear more casual girly clothes. When I was feeling extra spiffy, I would pair a V-Neck tee that I stole from my sister with some bedazzled Silver brand jeans. I remember shopping at Garage and American Eagle on the regular.
College Kathy: a grungey gal
College is where things changed. I really stopped caring much about what people thought of my appearance. I no joke would show up to group meetings or the library in huge sweats and a comfy tee. I can still remember going to the bars in a sweatshirt and leggings (or shorts - as pictured above) where I danced alongside a sea of girls wearing crop tops and skinny jeans. Honestly, the leggings just made my dance moves even better!
Although it wasn’t the cutest, I definitely started to gain the most confidence during college. I finally realized that what I looked like didn’t matter at all, it was more important for me to feel confident in who I was…which was a quirky fun-loving gal.
Adult Katherine Ann Forsha: a modern day lady with killer style
Now as a adult woman, I have been finding my groove in the grungy boho world. I have started messing with prints, killer shoes and unique jewelry that sets me apart without trying too hard. I am SUPER into layering gold accessories. You’ll never catch me without a couple rings on my fingers, a necklace (or two) and some gold hoops. But more recently I’ve been trying to switch it up and add new items into my collection, which is why I love Jord!
I won’t lie, I am not usually a watch person. I think it’s something about a watch weighing down my wrist that irritates me, but when I saw the cute Jord watches I told myself that I would give it a try.
What I love most is the size of the watch face. It is perfectly large without overpowering my small wrists, and pairs nicely with almost every outfit. Personally, I loved that it came with an alternative gold band because it fits my aesthetic (duh!) and brought in a masculine touch. I always remember my Dad wearing a gold bracelet growing up, so in some odd way this kind of reminds me of him.
I can’t say enough great things about Jord Watches and the company as a whole! The products are so high quality and definitely something that will last you forever + the employees are super helpful and kind!
