This wasn't originally taken as an outfit picture, because it's not really fashionable (whatever that means). But it's what I wore, and it is what it is! It was a "I blend into the wall" picture, and I'm wearing my Banana Republic cardigan in a beige color that I seem to wear pretty often. I guess the first step to figuring myself out is to add "beige-colored tops" to my conscious awareness of what makes up my "daily uniform".
blogging and style
I thought creating a blog would hold me somewhat accountable and encourage me to "dress up" more- at the very least, encourage me to wear more of the things in my closet. What actually happened was that in cold weather season, I justified that it "didn't matter" what I wore because I had a coat on over everything, and with summer weather approaching, my weather adjusted approach is just that- wearing whatever is comfortable with importance placed on the afternoon high temperature. I think I got over my super fashionista phase in college, and became somewhat bored with clothing, covered by a guise of "I dress like this now, must be because I'm lazy". If style isn't a conscious consideration when I get dressed in the morning, is it acceptable to consider this "style" at all? And under what circumstances can flip flops not be the end of the fashion credibility world?
On the internet, there are so many ways to publicly display your like/dislike for clothes and style and anything, but I suspect that I'm not the only one who's IRL outfits and activities don't reflect what I supposedly "like". I mean, where's my rustic modern living room and super organized work station....?
