I almost didn't do outfit photos today, but I put on these shoes this morning specifically so I'd have sweet shoes going on in my outfit photos. And it would be lame to clomp around Walmart picking up my prescription and avoiding rogue motorized carts in these things and then not do an outfit post, so FINE! Here you go. My outfit.
I feel like I'm doing one of those 30 outfits in 30 days from 30 items of clothes things, but involuntarily. People are always like "How creative can I be with only 30 items of clothes?!" but I only ever like 30 items in my wardrobe at one time, if that, so I end up wearing the same outfit over and over with slight variations. Like I've worn this white blouse with a black cross print basically every day I don't do outfit photos, and every day on the weekends. Which isn't bad, but in the world of fashion/style blogging it's kind of overkill. Especially if I expect people to look at my outfits and be ~inspired~ by them, or even vaguely interested.
When I was in high school I used to wear the same 5 outfits every week. Except I'd try not to wear the same outfit on the same day two weeks in a row, because I thought people would notice. See I used to be in the Missoula Youth Symphony, which met every Monday night, and I remember noticing that this violist from another school would always wear the same shirt every Monday. Without fail. It was a pretty distinctive shirt with a crazy print, and literally every Monday she'd be wearing it. Either it was her MYS shirt, or it was her Monday shirt. And I didn't want to become like Crazy Monday Shirt Girl, so I made a conscious effort to switch it up. "I can't wear my brown cords and black long-sleeved shirt on Friday, because I wore it last Friday! I must wear this outfit on Thursday instead." That is totally an actual outfit that I wore, and I always made sure to wear it with these black Mary Janes that clacked really loudly on the floor when I walked, because you have to wear black shoes if you're gonna wear a black top with brown pants (in my 16-year-old mind?). Worst outfit ever.
Anyway so long story short, there are about 5 things in my closet that I actually want to wear right now, and the rest I force myself into because I have a blog, and also, people will start to notice if I wear literally the same outfit every day for multiple weeks. First world problems. Ugly sobbing.
HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND EVERYONE! My goals are 1) finish Beautiful Creatures, and 2) watch A Knight's Tale. Lofty goals... lofty goals.
