Finding Beautiful Truth // Know Your Style

Aubry has been a style inspiration to me ever since we met almost two years ago. Her style is flawless in my opinion; so classic, well tailored, and rustic. I often find myself browsing her blog, looking for inspiration. So of course, she had to be my first "Know Your Style" guest post (a new Sunday style series you'll find on this blog). Aubry is the epitome of class, not just in her style of dress, but in the way she conducts herself and treats others. I am grateful to call her a friend in and outside of blogland.

Hello, hello- Aubry here, the voice behind Finding Beautiful Truth. I'm here to share a few tips that have helped me stay true to my personal style while out, about, and shopping for the new season:

1. Find your inspiration.
Over the last few years, I've worked to define who I am (in terms of style) and what I like to wear. My greatest source of inspiration comes from Tumblr, and I regularly update my page with styles and pieces I want to incorporate into my personal collection. You can follow along here: http://findingbeautifultruth.tumblr.com

2. Analyze what you're drawn to.
With one look at my Tumblr, you'll notice that I'm drawn to classic styles, American-made brands, and menswear inspired pieces. It's also pretty obvious that I'm a fan of neutral pallets and solid colors. Diving a little deeper, you'll find high waisted denim, throw-back sneakers, leather accessories and boots of all shapes and fashions.

3. Implement what you've learned.
The photos on my Tumblr are evidence that I prefer outfits that are versatile and fuss-free. Any time I'm shopping, I take a quick peek at my Tumblr to revisit what I'm drawn to (my list in #2). It's a good reminder of what I like and what I'll actually wear... Even though it looks good on the mannequin, it may not be the piece I need to add to my closet.

I’m curious to know how you stay true to your style. What tips, tricks, and rules does your wardrobe live by?

What a fun new series, I'm so going to love this! And her style looks amazing- I nearly swooned over that brown leather jacket and striped shirt combo. I really liked her suggestion of curating photos of your style and then trying to find themes in them and stick to them. That's what I do in Pinterest and it really helps you tune into what you like when you see such a big array of it in one spot. Wonderful tip :)
