this is one of those times when i’m not super confident about what i’m wearing…
i wore this to work yesterday, minus the boots and the cuffing of the pants. in my head, it was flawless; however, i knew if i wore this, i’d subject myself to endless coworker comments and raised eyebrows. i know, i know…who cares?! well, i do. i just wasn’t in the mood, as i was already doubting the creation. so i played it safe.
however, when i got home, i rushed to my closet to try it out…to convince myself that i was on to something. initially, i tried stuffing the pant in the boot…it looked stupid and the extra fabric made the boots too tight and uncomfortable. so, i cuffed. and i liked the end result.
after a few flips of my hair and a dab of blush, i headed out to snap a few photos.
after reviewing the photos, i still wasn’t satisfied. what’s missing? i like it, but something in my gut caused me to hesitate.
what do you think?? [be honest. it won’t hurt my feelings.]
are the proportions off? is the blazer too much? is camel too light with the dark pants? should the pants be looser? the belt a bit skinnier? am i trying too hard?
*truth – as much as i love fashion and clothing, i still consider myself a novice at times. i don’t necessarily follow current trends, i don’t scour the internet for the hottest designers. i don’t even buy fashion magazines to lust over the glossy pages. i usually stick with what’s comfortable…sometimes throwing in an unexpected, interesting element. ultimately, that’s why i follow style bloggers…to try new things, break out of my shell…you ladies are a huge source of inspiration for me. so…let me know what you think! and thank you!
