I look at other blogs and 'streetstyle' sites for inspiration and I'm wondering where do these chicks work since they can wear a slouchy sweater, knee high boots and that's all? I look under the section labeled "work" and I find mini skirts and intentionally torn tights and that is definitely not the look I'm going for in my work attire. I want to be a bit more funky, a little edgier but it needs to fit my lifestyle, budget and and most importantly my personality. Also, I'm no spring chicken so I do not want to look like I'm trying to look too young.
Here is an outfit that I wore to work last week. I actually love the kimono style sleeves on this dress but it was way too long (see Sister Wives) so my mom recently hemmed it for me so I could wear it. But the styling? *Yaaaawwwwwnnnn*
WHAT I WORE:
Sweater: Zara, Dress: Thrifted, Shoes: BCBG
Then I thought, what about a do over? So I put the dress on again today and styled it differently. I am pledging to post photos of my outfits even if I don't particularly love what I'm wearing, keep some of the elements of the outfits and re-style it. I'm going to call it "What I Should Have Worn" and show how to change the look of an outfit with simple (and not so simple) touches.
WHAT I SHOULD HAVE WORN:
Posting my outfits is definitely challenging me to tap into my creative side and put together 'picture worthy' outfits but sometimes after taking photos I don't post the pics because I deem them 'too boring.' I am hoping that documenting my style journey will help me to evolve into the stylish me I wanna be and I want to take you along for the ride. What do I want from you? Understanding that no one gets it right all the time but I'm gonna let it all hang out and your participation. Questions, feedback (good or bad) are welcome. Let's make this interactive, shall we?
