Does this happen to anyone else?
This fall, I am going to make a serious effort to remix my wardrobe and trick my brain into thinking that I have more clothes than I do. Hopefully, this will make my existing wardrobe more fun for me and I'll stop buying new outfits. I'm also quickly realizing that with fall semester comes the "everyone wants a piece of Andria" time of year. School is starting, which means that I have to teach a whole lotta classes at job #2, and job #1 is going to start giving computer classes in October, which I will also be teaching. This means extra running around, and extra standing in front of large groups of people, for which I'd like to look good.
I'm going to spend some time trying on outfits, and, in the spirit of Cher Horowitz from the movie Clueless, I'm going to take pictures of them so I remember what I did. It would be nice to be the type of girl who just opens the closet door and yanks out the perfect outfit, but I have to admit, time has proven that I am not that girl.
For my first trick, I re-evaluated my navy skirt. I bought it because it's a classic piece, has a great shape, and because it goes with everything. What I failed to remember is the part about it going with everything! The first time I wore it, I paired it with a lighter blue sweater, and the result was apparently so pleasing to me that I haven't worn it with any other top since.
Last week I set out to change that.
This is my standard outfit when I wear this skirt:
Here's the remix:
|White polka dots on a dark brown shirt because,|
brown goes with navy! It took me a while to
figure that out, sadly.
The goal is to remix at least one outfit per week. Let's see how I do. I wish a had a mannequin...
