Style Saturday, June 25, 2016

And here we are with the third full week of my “shopping my wardobe challenge”! I slightly failed the no shopping thing (explanation below), but I’m still looking at new combinations that I had never thought of before! This week was quite rainy at the beginning- meaning that was a bit chillier and perhaps dresses/skirts all work weren’t quite an option. Last summer I was pretty bad for continually styling pants with regular ol’ t-shirts for a chilly office, so I’m proud that I’m not quite so boring anymore. Once again, the rules:

  1. I need to wear at least four unique outfits for the work week- meaning that an item may be repeated by the combination may not.
  2. I am allowed one repeat outfit per week (most likely Friday).
  3. If I go out on the weekend for something other than errands or the dog park, I need to include that outfit.
  4. If at all possible, I need to include a collage of outfits per week!
  5. I need to include my thoughts on why I wore what I wore that day.

June 20- Okay, last week I said I was going to do my hair. Welllllll, our power was out on Sunday evening from about 630pm to 230am, meaning that I couldn’t shower before bed like I normally do. I don’t like to blow dry my hair unless absolutely necessary; it’s damage I’m not that committed to on a regular basis. I had to wake up about 45 minutes early to shower in the morning, so that hair right there is all natural. (Blargh, I don’t love my hair like that.) I decided to go for a more casual look by keeping this shirt untucked! I don’t know that I’ve ever paired them together- I often pair a neutral top with this brighter blue. However, time to branch out!

June 21- Today was also chillier, but I was determined to make sure I did something with my hair! I find curling the ends a little offers a more polished look that doesn’t fall like a full head of curls does for me. This was another new pairing for me- I typically pair this red pair with navy, or straight black. (This probably says something about me that I continually pair the same items together….)

June 22- One of my best friends that I work with is a lover of Mean Girls (really, aren’t we all at some point), and I knew I had to wear this shirt for her! On Wednesdays we wear pink, and this is pretty much the only pink I own! I paired it with my black modern stretch leggings. I wanted the design to stand out, and standard black pants seem the way to go! I’m really starting to get into these flutter sleeves, also….

June 23- So, this is where I failed the no shopping challenge… Mom and I stopped at Old Navy on the way out to the lake, and I spotted this skirt! It was originally $29.95 CAD, and it was 40% off. Okay, for that deal, I was interested. I tried it on, and it was sooooo comfortable!! I also had to find a shirt that matched one of the colours in it, henceforth the t-shirt. When I get to the register, the skirt rang up at $4.49. FOUR FORTY NINE!!!! What a steal! The skirt and tee together were less than $17. I’m okay with breaking my no-shopping for June for $17. I still love the skirt, but I didn’t realise that the t-shirt was so big… This is an XS, and it was still huge. I mean, comfortable, but looks way bigger than I would like. I am very proud that I bought this skirt, because this is light years away from my comfort zone!

June 24- Once again, my super comfy cotton skirt! So perfect for a day when we are supposed to have a temperature of 35°C with the humidex. I typically style this skirt with a blazer- I never know if it’s too casual of a skirt to not wear a blazer for balance. However, it’s Friday, and I’m gonna be crazy with a cardigan! (Crazy with a Cardigan, that’s going to be my secondary blog name.) And, I don’t think that it looks inappropriate for work, either!!

Four more days- I can do this!!

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!
