I've got to start out by thanking Molly again for taking the time to answer my questions about her fashion ideas. So, thanks Molly! If you missed that post, you can click here to see how Molly handles her fashion choices and where she gets her inspiration. So now we move on to day three in this week of me photo-journaling what I typically wear.
I realize that I tend to get in a rut - if I find a pair of pants I like, I buy them in every color and fabric, or if I find a zip-up jacket that is comfortable, I get one in orange, brown, and blue and proceed to wear them on an almost daily basis. You might not have noticed yesterday, but I'll let you in on a little secret - the shoes I wore on Monday and that I'm wearing today? Same brand, same style. They are comfortable and practical, so I bought a pair in black and a pair in brown and I wear them all the time. The humorous part is that I'm a total shoe nut - I love them! I have shelves of shoes (in clear shoe boxes from The Container Store) in our closet, but I tend to go to the same two pairs in the winter and a different two pairs in the summer. Can anyone explain this to me? Am I alone in this?
On a side note, I've been heckled for years because I'm usually dressed like it's -30 outside when it's really 70 and beautiful. There's a perfectly logical explanation - I am always cold. In the summer, I wear shorts and a t-shirt, but I always wear socks and tennis shoes and carry a zip-up hoodie with me because I freeze my tail off in the stores that crank down on the A/C. However, I hate to be cold, so let them laugh - I laugh back when I see them shivering inside and I have even been known to say, "who's laughing now". Yeah, I'm not a good sportsman. So, if you're local and thinking, "it's not that cold here today" when you see what I'm wearing, well, now you know why I dress this way.
Camden Pants, Stretch-Corduroy: L.L. Bean (Clearance!)
Fisherman's Sweater: GAP (read my post about the deal I got)
Sonoma Tan Turtleneck: Kohl's (last year)
Belt: Old Navy (and older than dirt)
Brown Shoes: Eastland Plainview (again, I did not pay $84 for mine!)
Re: Mr. Linky. Because it annoys me that you can only use the free version of Mr. Linky for a day at a time, and because only one person is linking up, I'm no longer providing a link-up section this week. However, I'll still be using Mr. Linky for my Friday Thankfulness posts and will stick to comments in the future for everything else. Thanks!
I was just thinking about how bundled up you are with your layers when you mentioned that you are always cold. That makes sense! I was freaked out that the temps had dropped drastically over night.ReplyDelete
(We're pretty close to each other geographically, right??)
You look cute. Love those shoes, WEB! (Schwartz). I wear sweats and t shirts every day unless I am going somewhere, then I wear a pair of jeans. I do dress up for church, but no pantyhose-ever! Drab, boring. My life as a mom of a two and three year old!ReplyDelete
I think you look fabulous all the time- and that's not just because I'm your husband!ReplyDelete
Love you hun!
Oh, by the way, I'll remain anonymous for this comment. Does that make me a lurker? ;-)
what a divinely cozy outfit! i absolutely wish that i could enjoy lovely warm clothes, i am jealous looking at all you girls that get to dress for the weather!!!!!!ReplyDelete
I really like the pants!ReplyDelete
I'm always cold too! My family always makes fun of me when we go on summer vacations, because I always pack a bunch of socks and sweaters, haha.ReplyDelete
And I love your corduroy pants!
I do the same thing! I find one thing I like and want to stock up on many, many colors of that. A few moves later (having to lug it around)... I've kinda broken the habit but it's still under the surface.ReplyDelete
You have such a great smile!
I do the same thing with leggings and flats, lol. And I know how you feel about ALWAYS being cold. My husband is always sweating and I am begging to turn the heater on. =DReplyDelete
