recently i wore...
I’m making a more concerted effort to capture at least a handful of my outfits each month, although to what precise end I don’t know. Partly to appreciate what works for me, partly to “walk the talk” since I go on about clothes so much that it seems odd to not show myself wearing any. And years from now, it would be great to have some pictures to look back on to see whether I’ve changed how I dress, and decide whether there is such a thing as enduring classics, as Jess of Empty Emptor articulately questioned here.
Speaking of looking back, one outfit here is a throwback to my university days – the denim mini. I more likely wore it with sneakers or flip flops then, and lugged a canvas tote full of books and notes instead of a fancy purse. Wearing such a short skirt feels odd now, even though the style itself doesn’t feel dated to me. I suppose even if a style doesn’t date, clothes do get irrelevant. I’m keeping the skirt anyway; and some part of me thinks I haven’t seen the end of it.
Denim skirt aside, this outfits are pretty typical of how I dress all the time. I keep the number of layers to a minimum - actually I avoid them as much as possible. I spent at least half my day outside of the office so much as I love jackets, scarves and knits, those get pretty little wear and I have learned to minimise my investment in such items. T-shirts are my favourite thing but I try to keep that to once a week for work, since admittedly I only got away with that in the past with very relaxed bosses.
What do you guys think of outfit posts? People seem to like them, but I'd like to know why.
