Does anyone else ever get kind of confused with their own style? Sometimes I find myself wanting to dress all hip like the cool kids in Wicker Park in their oversized garage sale clothes with weird high skinny pants, but then the next minute I’ll walk into J Crew and want every grandma cardigan and blazer I can find. Half of my closet looks like it belongs to a grungy teenager and the other half looks like it belongs to an old lady who plays bridge at the Country Club. Which I guess is kind of spot on. That’s me to a T.
Really what it all boils down to is that I usually just want to wear what is comfortable. I did the uncomfortable tight clothing thing in college and no thank you. Never again will I wear stupid sleeveless dresses in the winter because I think it looks good. What an idiot.
Naturally when I got the chance to partner with one of my favorite online stores, Zappos, and choose a few items from their contemporary fashion line I went right to the big sweaters. This French Connection sweater was just calling my name.
And it did not disappoint, it’s just as comfortable as it looks.
And I’m a really big fan of loafers right now. (It’s the grandma side.) These are by Penny Loves Kenny and they are perfect for a gal who suffers from FAFS like myself- Fat Ass Feet Syndrome. My feet are basically as wide as they are long and sometime that makes for hard shoe shopping. If you’re like me, do yourself a favor and order these shoes, but order them a half size bigger than what you normally wear.
And this is my “ooh are you taking my picture?” because I’m trying to look coy look. I’m rocking the same pants, same shoes, but now with my other go to fashion staple- a little bit of denim. Denim vests, denim shirts, denim jackets, I love it all. I think it’s the Midwestern in me that just can’t stray from a good Canadian tuxedo.
And there you have it. That’s a little bit of my style at the moment. But who knows, it will probably change tomorrow. What’s your style like?
