Hello Closet, Nice to See You Again!
So, confession time. This is not the first outfit I wore after my challenge ended. But I ran out of time to shoot that outfit and even didn't think I liked it enough to take pictures. But then I found myself thinking it actually was kind of quite cute in the middle of the day. That happens to me a lot - I either find myself liking my outfit more and more as the day goes on - or hating it more and more. Either or :).
This particular outfit kind of tended towards the "eh" end of my shifting scale. There seems to be something a bit off but I can't nail down what exactly. Maybe it's the belt or the fact that the shirt is tucked in. Maybe it just tells me that I need to spend more than 5 minutes throwing things together when I don't plan my outfits out ahead of time.
What's funny is that I ended up using 2 items from my challenge in this outfit! But can I tell you how happy I was that I got to use some other items in my closet? Not to mention shoes!? That is the best thing about the freedom of having my closet accessible to me again - my lovely shoes. I use shoes the same way I use accessories - they are a key ingredient in the way that I try to add some "oomph" to my outfits.
Happy Friday to everyone!! Yay weekend!
