At the start of the new season I’m thinking of ways I can improve myself, my life and my wardrobe. There are multiple blog posts in there, but today I want to talk about wardrobe…and thinking outside the norm. Maybe not THE norm, but whatever is normal for you. Or in this case, me.
I think it’s good to try new things and not get stuck in a certain look or style for too long. So today I’m really stretching myself. I’m layering sheer over black, plaid over lace, wearing a dress as a duster, oh I’m just stretching myself all over the place!
I wore this plaid dress a couple weeks back in this post and at the time thought I should try wearing it next time in a different way. I’d originally thought it might be cute over faded skinny jeans and a white tee. And I first thought of wearing an oversized belted black longline blazer over this sheer lacy number today, but I liked the dark tartan plaid with the lace peeking out under the collar. It was giving me Wuthering Heights Romantic Scotland On the Moors vibes, so. I think Debbie at Fashion Fairy Dust would be proud. She’s the QUEEN of layering.
And then purely coincidentally when I was moving stuff around on the bookcase while setting up the shoot area, I opened a little box and this antiqued medusa pendant was in it and that seemed to go with the theme…so things were just falling into place.
Ha, please ignore the big floofs of Caleb hair I now see on my left leg. This is real life.
I probably wouldn’t wear this to work, but I could wear it to dinner with friends or to a museum on the weekend. It’s definitely outside my more conservative norm, but…like I said, it’s good to stretch yourself and think outside the box.
