I just came to the realization that I always wear PRETTY MUCH. the same things all the time. My wardrobe staples are tank tops, hoodies and jeans. Not that there's anything wrong with that, its typical attire of a university student, but I'm freshly graduated so now would be the perfect time to get a new wardrobe! I came to the epiphany that I've established a teeny tiny bit of the mindset of my mother - if it fits, its fine! (Though her idea is much more extreme, giant bat-wing sweaters and stirrup tights from the 80s still fit, just as long as it goes over the head and covers what it needs to) Sure my hoodies fit (properly!) but it seems to be the only thing I wear - easy layering right?
I have a pretty good idea of what I'd like to wear (I think), I don't consider myself to be a girly girl, but I'm drawn to ruffles and that whole romantic look! How does that even make sense... I LOVE the work of Bonzie
though that would be saved for special occasions. I love the tailored Victorian look of Gloomth
, a Canadian btw! But to make it a wearable almost everyday look, I'd have to go with Sarah Seven
. Her ruffle dresses are all so pretty!!
BUT. I never wear skirts/dresses - the moment I'm in one, I feel ultra formal or like everyone is staring at me for showing my legs or something! This goes for shorts too.
My bf has also noticed that I stopped carrying purses. I carry this wallet that I bought from Hollyhawk
(also a Canadian *nudge nudge!) with me everywhere. I mean EVERYWHERE. The floret print is wearing off...LOL but its the PERFECT size. I love it and get compliments on it wherever I go, and I really don't need much more than this! Got my cards, cash, coin purse, chapstick AND gloss, and my keys, all in that tiny wallet. Cell phone in either my pant pockets or coat pockets.
Though come summer I think I'll have to start carrying one again because I also carry the bf's phone and wallet... haha right now its winter, so he puts everything in his pockets. I have no idea what else to put in a purse if I had those oversize ones! They're pretty, but mine would be completely empty. What do you put in your purse? =S
I need help. LOL. Its not only a skirt thing, its an everything thing. Someone just give me a push and tell me that hoodies and jeans aren't the be all and end all of clothing!! I'm NOT giving up my denim though - that would be sacrilegious - but would be open to occasionally wearing a skirt.
