Polished Picks – August 2018

August is always a weird month for me when it comes to fashion. It’s still summer and BEYOND hot outside, yet I am already in the mood for fall outfits. My current favorites for this month are summery, but could easily transition into fall. Navy and blush pink are colors that will work for any season!

On a slightly off-topic note, if you’ve noticed less blog posts from me lately, there is a reason for that. I have really been evaluating where I want this blog to go and the type of content I want to share. This has always been primarily a fashion blog, and although I LOVE fashion, I have felt the pressure to keep buying clothing and other things that I don’t really need just to have new outfits to share with you all. I am a minimalist at heart, and lately I have just felt overwhelmed with all of this unnecessary “stuff” in my life. Because of this, you will probably start seeing a change in the type of content I share.

I still want to talk about fashion and beauty, but perhaps just in a different way. Living a minimalist lifestyle does not mean that I won’t be buying new things, or sharing my current favorites (like in this post). It simply means that I will be more intentional with what I buy and will only surround myself with the things that bring me joy. To take a phrase from one of my absolute favorite brands, Cuyana, I want to start buying fewer, better things. I am truly committed to living a more minimalist, intentional life, and I will definitely be sharing my journey with you guys in hopes that it may inspire you to do the same.
