Although it’s true we really should have taken a cue from Michelle’s treasure trove of outfit photo tips, we made do in our building’s hallway.
And says: Until I had the displeasure of viewing this photo, I was under the impression I was wearing something flattering. The fact is, I’m a boring, boring person. I know what looks good, I just prefer to enjoy risk taking fashion from a far and on someone other than myself. I think the only piece of clothing in my closet that isn’t beige, black or navy blue is a red hoodie that I only wear when I’m feeling 10 kinds of weird.
Aside from the schmock I never plan on wearing again, these jeans, although they may not look it in the photo, are amazing. AG Jeans are the most flattering jeans I’ve encountered, especially for shorties like myself. These jeans know they’re going to be doing all the work to make my butt look good, and somehow, they always pull through. Now I’m breaking some rules here, especially given my height, the shirt with high-waisted jeans is kind of a no no, at least for me, so I consider this a lesson learned. As for the moccasins, I have only good things to say — they’re not the best for posture or stabilization, like a pair of Nikes would provide, but these comfy slippers and I simply can’t quit each other.
And says: Comfort is my main objective when I get dressed in the morning. Thus, I am horribly addicted to leggings. I’m loud and proud about it, but a part of me hurts every time I realize I’ve given into a fad that has spiraled out of all control. My shirt was bought in an effort to stop wearing some shade of gray or black every day, and inject some color into the increasing boring color scheme of my wardrobe.
Also, I hate buying jewelry — I can never make up my mind. So, most of my jewelry box are items I’ve stolen or inherited from family members, namely my mother and grandmother. I let them do the actual picking and then I comb their loot. It’s effective.
And says: I say the earrings I got as a gift but in reality, I got them by default. My boyfriend roomed with a real ladies’ man in college and once while cleaning out his truck, he found these earrings. Unable to narrow down the candidates of female folk he’d bedded whom they might belong to, he gave up early and gave them to me. They are some of my favorites because they go with pretty much anything.
I got this sweater on a whim at Salvation Army in college about three years ago. I feel like it gives a dressy illusion to my secret very comfy get-up. I mean, there are pearly buttons!
I found these jeans on crazy sale at a boutique in Florida. I assume their slashed price tag may be attributed to the fly’s perma-zipper woodie. It’s kind of annoying, but if I wear a longer shirt in them, BOOM. Stretchy, cute and designer jeans. I deal.
What did you wear today, Lovelies? How do you do Friday casual?
