I had a lot of fun putting together outfits the past few weeks. Getting up earlier in the morning gives me time to think about what I could wear before standing in front of my closet for 5 minutes drawing a blank.
Thrifted: Ann Taylor Loft cardigan
(there is so much awkwardness that happens before an acceptable picture. You can tell the days in which I only had time for 3 shots before getting to work.)
Thrifted: Seychelles shoes and teal belt
Thrifted: Ann Taylor jacket, handbag, gold bow shoes
But I've gotten several compliments lately that I've become 'more adventurous' and fun, so thats encouraging. and I've worn every newly purchased piece at least once!
Thrifted: H&M marching band blazer
Thrifted: red belt and Seychelles shoes
Thrifted: gray belt
I feel like I've now got so many thrifted items in my wardrobe that it doesn't matter what I put together, it's almost certain that at least one item will have been thrifted! I am going to try to start tagging my photos in Flickr so I can easily track how I wear different pieces
My favorites are the marching band blazer and skirt outfit, and the ruffle dress with teal cardigan ensemble.
It is SO easy to get into a rut with pieces you regularly wear (this teal top go with those gray pants) over and over. So my next personal style challenge is to not repeat an outfit I've already worn (ever) in the next month!
