How I Self Express through Fashion

Whether it comes to my blog, styling a shoot or just getting dressed for the day, there’s nothing else that inspires me quite like fashion does. Personally, I use fashion as a form of self expression because it  allows you to “say” so much without actually saying a word. 
I had so much fun shooting this video for TJ Maxx where I was able to give a little glimpse into my world and how fashion influences it. Now that the weather is changing, I find myself reaching for brighter colors and airy dresses, but also still wearing my all time favorites like blazers and skinny jeans. I’ve always loved playing with trends, but I pair them with classics for a balanced look. 
I’d like to think that my outfits and style say a lot about me and how I’m feeling that day (or month!). I would love to hear how you guys plan to self-express through fashion this summer. Please share your stories!

    You have such a lovely voice, Helena. Great video! Those metallic pants are AMAZING. They fit you perfectly too.

    Love this post. I'm making my foray into fashion because I find that, while not talented at painting or drawing, my creativity comes out in my clothes. I'm a master accessor-izer and love unexpected juxtapositions of hard and soft styles. I love thinking of my wardrobe as a costume, and I can instantly change my mood with a simple change of clothes.

    Love that someone else understands me!

    Too true……

    I have always said fashion is a language…

    lovely post.

    Such a cute video! I LOVE those metallic pants! My style tends to change day by day depending on my mood as well. During the Summer months though, I tend to gravitate towards fun sundresses with lots of gold jewelry. Fedoras and denim cutoffs are always a must as well πŸ™‚

    I couldn't agree more … that's why my blog is called "Myself Expressed".

    I love your decidedly edgy take on fashion. Your blog is always at the top of my "to read" list.

    Dying over that tuxedo blazer in the last of your video. Fashion is the only thing that gets me motivated in life. It's my passion and my life revolves around it. I started my blog to connect with people who are like-minded, because those people make the best friends and fashion is a strong connection.

    Great video!!! I believe fashion is a way to express how you are feeling & to tell something about yourself…

    I agree with you totally. Clothes are a great form of expression. Living in Florida, I get to wear Summer Fashion longer than most. But I like bright colors, and more casual looks during the hotter periods. A little Sporty Chic with feminine accents.
