Like, OMG! Fashion!

While I definitely think I manage to make myself look at least somewhat presentable most of the time, I’m certain I rarely warrant a, Oh my gosh, you look so cute!  Totally guilty of having a “uniform” and sticking to it. Religiously.






Yeah. I am pretty much guaranteed to be wearing some combination of this outfit 8 times out of 10. It’s partially because it’s amazingly versatile — it can work for almost any season, and you can mix and match everything in your closet. But it’s also because it’s what I feel the most comfortable wearing…Cardigans, if picked out and worn correctly! — can complement curves and hide….lumps? Haha.

My favorite spots to score cardis and camis are LOFT, Banana, Gap and J. Crew. All known for their plain — albeit adorable — styles. Eeep.

My work “dress code” is very casual, so while it’s totally acceptable to show up looking super adorable and dressed up — just as it’s totally acceptable (but still unfathomable to me) to show up in ripped jeans and old sneakers — I’m looking to strike a happy medium using clothes I can also wear on the weekends.


My other problem is what I wear when I’m not trying to look good and simply aiming for not homeless. My day off/working from home/pre- or post-gym/it’s-Saturday-and-I-have-things-to-do-but-don’t-want-to-shower-because-I’m-going-out-tonight-and-don’t-feel-like-showering-twice-in-one-day … *INHALE* … look is going out in my “nicer” gym clothes (aka Lulu) with brushed hair and some makeup on.

I totally look like this when I hit the gym. NOT.

Are you guys guilty of this? I feel like I’m totally copping out by admitting this, but it’s totally acceptable because it’s all, “Hey! I’m active and physically fit! I ran 77 miles before you even woke up this morning so it’s totally legit to walk around in my gym clothes! Why YES, my hair DOES always look this perfect after I work out…why do you ask?”

Don’t you guys love me? Haha.

Should I just stick with what works? Or try and branch out with some new styles? But I don’t know what to wear. What do normal people wear every day!?? WHAT THE HELL IS A JEGGING? OMG LIFE IS HARD.

(For the record, I totally have a bunch of dresses that I regularly wear in the summer, but haven’t yet mastered the winter dress and tights look, and can’t seem to find a single skirt that doesn’t make me look 1000x ridiculous, so that’s not really an option).

Also, sometimes I wear this.

This was fun.

Please help me.

Love you all.

    Hello, you just described my life. Sometimes, I wear a v-neck sweater instead of a cardigan. Besides that, my uniform is almost identical. And on the weekends, it’s all about the wunder unders. There’s no shame in comfort, my friend. I say wear what you want because whenever I try and be “hip” or “stylish” I just feel awkward and completely phony. Authenticity is the new cool.

    Wear what you’re comfortable with. I never follow “fashion” – to an extent, I mean you have to buy what’s in the store I suppose, right?

    I just don’t consider myself a slave to fashion – it’s all about expressing yourself. If comfort is what expresses you, then so be it! There’s no need to dress up in stuff that makes you feel uncomfortable when you know what you like!

    I’m pretty standard too – dress pants/polos or button up shirts for me during the week, the occasional skirt, and on the weekends jeans/tee/tank unless i”m going out.

    I’ve just recently accepted skinny jeans in my life. Jeggings scare me. Not sure why, they just do…

    And I’m obsessed with flats this season. Possibly because the guy I’m currently dating is only about an inch taller than me. That doesn’t give me much room to work with. Life is sooooo harrrrrddddd.

    I think everyday fashion is all about finding the styles that work for your figure, and wearing them again and again. And, that dress on the bottom is really super-cute – there’s nothing wrong with a little flair now and again!
