Two years ago, I started law school...
My wardrobe consisted of T-shirts, flare cut jeans, and sneakers.
Here is a photo.
The last two years, my style has changed-maybe not dramatically to those of you who are very fashion forward. But for me - it is a pretty drastic change. I mean, c'mon, I bought booties and leggings.
Despite my desire to change things up, I struggle to pick out items and pair items. Welcome Pinterest. I am (slightly) obsessed with this site. It provides me with recipes and DIY ideas--word art and home decor inspiration. But for a fashion-fearing gal, it also provides great cues for outfits. So my motto this year is going to be "Staples and Stretch"--meaning keep the STAPLES: I still love T-shirts and jeans--cardigans and scarves. But I need to STRETCH: add an item that maybe I wouldn't have on my own. Here are some of my inspirational outfits.
STAPLES: T-shirt, jeans
STRETCH: everything else. I like the hat and jacket, but they scare me.
the boots are super cute, but it is definitely a stretch.
STAPLES: jeans, T-shirt, scarf
STRETCH: stripy flats paired with gold-ish bag
(don't you like my fashion verbage-very articulate)
STAPLES: TOMS, jeans, tank
STRETCH: odd cardigan that I probably wouldn't pick for myself
STAPLES: cardigan and jeans.
STRETCH: heels, bangles and top. I am not much of a bracelet person.
(plus I prob wouldn't pair the distressed jean with such a polished outfit)
