So I think all of us bloggers out there who have an interest in fashion (I’m no “fashion blogger” but it is just what entertains me these days) can probably all agree that some days the outfits are just duds. That happened to me today. I even thought this outfit out, but I don’t love it. However, I didn’t have time to think anymore and work for a local government so I knew no one would care what I looked like. Honestly, I sort of want to wear a prom dress one day just to see if anyone says anything. Ok, they might notice that.
I used to save my “good” outfits for the weekend and pretty much just put on a pair of dress pants and a passable shirt to go to work each day because I knew no one would appreciate my effort of assembling a nice outfit. However, it struck me one day that the majority of my week is spent in work clothes, and I should dress for myself because it made me feel better. Although, now that I care more how will I ever be able to make it on to What Not To Wear, because I would LOVE to shop with Stacey and Clinton, in a heartbeat.
Oh well, I guess this current affinity for fashion blogging is keeping me from looking like a ragamuffin at work so I’ll go with it! The two fashion challenges going on is continuing the ABC challenge but also added Kayla’s 10 day challenge (check it out here). I participated in Kayla’s 21 day challenge a few months ago and had a blast! The two prompts for today – from ABC Fashion Challenge, F – Fur or Feathers and from Kayla’s 10 day challenge, Layers. These actually went well together, but since it is supposed to be a lovely 65 today I had to get creative with the fur and layers so that is why the outfit kind of went south. Anyway, onto the fabulously mediocre outfit of today
Faux fur vest, JCPenney girls’ section, $14
Dress, J. Crew, $20
