Ok, so I’m new at this whole style thing… and I feel like I’ve done a pretty good job. So far.
Yeah, not this week. The past two weeks I’ve fallen in love with one or two of my looks, and I fell harder when I made combinations that I did not expect, combinations I had never done before… This week, while I did a couple new things, I ended up making a couple of outfits that are basically staples in my wardrobe, and have been for a few years. I also find that in spite of the fact that I have few patterns in my wardrobe, I generally love my outfits that have at least one pattern… unfortunately in the past two weeks I’ve used most of my patterned items… and I need to do laundry if I’m going to remix any of those…
All of this is compounded by the fact that I did a lot of working at home and dance teaching this week, and I’m not ready to show you my athletic/lounging wardrobe yet. I’m not like those style bloggers that use their creativity just to stay indoors on their computer (I don’t know if those exist, but I’m generally not one of them, if I’m just inside blogging or working on other projects from home then I’m in Old Navy yoga (or I guess they call them Goga?) pants. And all of that is compounded by the fact that even though I like most of these outfits, none of them photographed all that great, especially since it was cooler this week and we weren’t able to do many of the photos in full natural light… which is compounded by the fact that I wore lots of dark colors… which are awful in indoor light.
Thus the slim outfit roundup… Perhaps this is just a lull?
I wore this for our night out on Friday night… I’ve been wanting to try the skinny jeans with heels, and I love these heels. They’re red with green leaves on them, and a gold heel. I think that worked pretty well, and I’e always loved this tunic (this is the type of plunging neckline that you can get away with when you wear a 34A)… But I wanted more than an all blue outfit plus some red shoes. So I added this olive cropped jacket. I like the color combinations, but I don’t know how I feel about the different types of fit.

Saturday shopping and hanging out with friends. This is a newer outfit, but I almost feel like its too matchy on top… maybe not. love the print on this top. Not sure how I feel about the belted cardigan, but it’s definitely a new look for me. I guess I almost feel like its conflicted… the boots and the tank feel very prairie lovin’ while the skinnies, the cardigan and the belt feel… well, not. But maybe the contrast is good? I don’t know.
