Thanksgiving Day week! Boy was I looking forward to a much needed break from work and school, and my trip down to DC to visit my best friend for the holiday’s festivities. I remember this week pretty clearly, because i tried a fashion experiment with myself. Basically I always visualize outfits, usually they end up being items that I don’t actually own, so that’s usually how I decide what will be my next purchase for my closet. This week though, well really Monday and Tuesday I visualized what I would want to wear ideally based on my mood, and figured out what I had in my closet that would most closely emulate that. I liked the results a lot, but by Wednesday I had a midterm to study for and packing to do, so I couldn’t put that much thought into recreating my wardrobe. I’m going to practice this method more in the Winter and see what I come up with.
This is a short week in my Style Diary, by the time I ate all that good food, and relaxed with the important people in my life on Thanksgiving, taking pictures was the last thing on my brain.
The week started out with fairly nice weather, I knew I wanted to rock the rolled up denim look. I also knew I needed to do my hair, so my fedora was a must, and my leather was perfect for the weather. I had just gotten the Young and Reckless tee; I envisioned it cut up, so I chopped it up that morning. I was in such a laid-back, chill mood that day, that white low-top chucks match exactly how I was feeling.
Tuesday I had just done my hair, and POW! I was feeling myself.! I woke up still loving rolled pants, and envisioned some sort of genie pants. Genie pants or heram pants aren’t something I own, but I remembered i had a pair of wide-legged pants my mom had made for me when I graduated college back in the day. I haven’t put them on in almost 4 years; just by adding rubber bands to the bottom and rolling them up, and adding a new necklace that I wore as a belt, I revamped my pants and created what I call genie pants. Paired with heels I dusted off in week 5, after not wearing them in years, and a cropped sweater, I created a look I L-O-V-E. Plus I hadn’t rocked a midriff in a years, if JLo can still do it in her 40s, why can’t I in my 30s?
On Wednesday fashion was not on the brain, I was thinking of how I was going to pass my midterm that I didn’t study for, how I will I finish my deadlines at work, and if I packed everything for my trip. My only fashion thought was how to be comfortable. The weather was supposed to drop during the weekend, so I made sure to bring my hat, and you can’t really go wrong with a sweater, jeans and chucks. I just added a printed scarf to play off the print of my sweater, and I was ready to go.
By the time I took this picture, I was almost 3 sheets to the wind, but hey it was Thanksgiving! You never can go wrong with a top, blazer and jeans in my book!
