Recently, a few of the ladies I follow on twitter have been doing a “What I Wore” blog each day and I found myself enjoying it and wanting to participate. The issue? a) I didn’t feel my blog was built for posts like that and b) well…I’m a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl.
I started thinking about these two things and I realized that there is no reason why I can’t dress “cute” every now and then. Most times I’m headed to work and I don’t wear anything good to go there as it would just get ruined. However, if I go out to run errands at night or on my day off, I can put a little effort into my attire. The other thing I started thinking about was that I can fit that kind of stuff into my blog. It’s part of my journey and I am able to fit into clothes I like now because I have busted my butt and lost all of the weight I felt I always needed to cover up under baggy, shapeless clothing and sweaters.
So, here are three outfits I wore this week. I seem to be attracted to stripes lately (probably because overweight people and stripes were always a no-no). I’m taking baby steps with this stuff and to be honest, the victory is in the fact that I’m not wearing a sports or Star Wars t-shirt.
I wore this Saturday night to a neighbors house for a get together.
Animal Print Shirt from Forever 21 purchased 2-years ago
Black cardigan from Target purchased this year
I wore a pair of dark wash jeans and boots with this.
I wore this on Sunday to go grocery shopping.
Striped shirt – purchased at Target last week.
Grey sweater – purchased at Target a few months ago.
Jeans from Charlotte Russe purchased last year.
Shoes which you can’t see are a pair of grey Converse (my favorites)
Yesterday outfit was worn to do some training at work, for a trip the mall and lunch with my husband.
V-neck t-shirt from Target – purchased this year.
Striped sweater from Target – purchased the other day.
White scarf – purchased at Five Below
Jeans from H&M – given to me by a friend to serve as goal jeans (they sat on a shelf in my closet for a long time!)
Purse – I believe I bought that at Target 3 years ago.
Shoes – which you can’t see are a pair of UGGS – I know, I know…they’re comfy and it was chilly so get over it!
Here you have it….my attempts at putting some effort into my attire. To some, this is super casual but to me, it’s slightly out of my junior high school boy comfort zone. Maybe some day you will see a major pop of color, a skirt and some heels….but don’t hold your breath on that one.
P.S. – I have no idea why some of my captions wouldn’t center on this post. All of my setting seem correct on here, but I’m late for work and can’t fight with it anymore. Sorry.
