I’ve been meaning to do outfit posts like these for awhile now. I find, sometimes more than others, that actually mixing in the clothes I make to my current wardrobe can be harder than making them. I have this very weird thing about saving garments for well….I don’t even know. I mean, it can only be worn on this certain day of the year if the sun is behind one cloud and the leaves are a certain color of green. You know. Well, hopefully you know what I mean.Casey’s inspirational post (some of my favorites that she does, because she’s always exposing me to new things) gave me a new perspective on my wardrobe. This girl’s got great style and even though I gather she’s not working a regular 9-5-er, she gets dressed and perks up everyday. There is something to be said for that. I was talking to Mr. S over the weekend and asked him why he got dressed that particular day and he said, “Because it makes me feel good about me.”
- Button up striped shirt – Thrifted, though it is a JCrew
- Polka dot scarf – something I picked up at TJ Maxx
- Bella Jeans – made by me from this Burda Style pattern
- Houndstooth shoes – Cole Haan (I got them for a steal when I used to work retail)
How do you feel about getting dressed on a day to day basis? What makes you get dressed? How do you feel when you get dressed? I would love to know your thoughts on this just to see if they are the same as some of my own.
