I haven’t done an outfit post in a while! In less than two weeks, I’ll be moving into college (!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and in lieu of actual packing I’ve been critically assessing my wardrobe. I cut off this formerly-ill-fitting green jacket last night and couldn’t resist constructing an outfit around it.
When coming up with an outfit, I often feel a) hampered by my inexpensive wardrobe and b) frustrated with my un-modelesque body. I want to rock a statement piece but don’t own anything designer. I want to play with proportions but can never replicate the volume-on-top-stork-legs look. As I trim my wardrobe for college, I’ve decided to give up on these illusions and get rid of the clothes that might work if in favor of the ones that actually look good on me. Sound a bit depressing? Not really – for me it’s about finding what works so that I can feel confident and attractive in everything I own!
