Without further ado, here is my first outfit post in all its faceless, un-edited, amateur glory.
Leopard scarf - The Limited
Blue & white striped tee - Gap
Gray cardigan - J Crew
Dark rinse jeans - Gap
Tan boots - Chinese Laundry
It's pretty representative of my safe/uniform style at the moment - dark jeans (they look black, but they're not), tan footwear, navy nautical stripes, cardigan, and some sort of statement-y neckwear. I also have some bracelets and my usual watch on, but I forgot to push up my sleeves so you can't really see them.
I'm trying to break out of my comfort zone a bit this year. I have lots of great clothes (thanks to many years of shopping and never throwing things away), but I tend to get lazy and wear a variation of this outfit far too often. I also fall prey to the "I don't want to waste a great outfit if nothing happens/I don't go anywhere/I don't see anyone important today!" syndrome, so maybe regular posting of my outfits will help me break out of that rut. I don't really make new year's resolutions, but I do make goals for my new year after my birthday. One of my major goals this year (the last year of my twenties... I know, I'm practically a great-grandparent in the blogging world) is to wear everything in my closet, and I decided that the blog would really help me accomplish that. Anyway, that's a lot of talking for one post, so off I go to plan some more outfits for posting!
So... happy 2012!
