I got some great feedback on my What I Wore This Week post from last week, so we are back again! I really enjoy these posts because they are easy to do (since I take photos of my outfits everyday anyway) and they are an easy way to look back at what I was doing/feeling/thinking/wearing that week in my life. If you remember, I started this blog to act as a little journal of what is going on in my life post grad so things like this are a great way to remember. Keep on reading to see what I wore last week!
Starting with Monday, I’ll have to be honest I was not feeling my best today. I was still battling a hangover from going out on Saturday night *face palm* and could barely function enough the night before to pick out my outfit. So what I came up with is basically the exact same outfit I wore on Friday the week before but wearing the sweater I wore out on Saturday night cause it was super cozy. Whatever, sue me. However, once I was functional again, I realized I really liked this outfit and tucking the sweater in was such a cute styling detail on my part.
I was really excited for my outfit today because with my coat and scarf (not shown because I didn’t think to include it in my picture??) it looked so cute. I had painted my nails a pretty forest green the night before and decided on wearing this cozy navy sweater and my navy wool coat because I love blue and green together. Then I decided that I also love blue and black/dark gray so I though to wear these jeans and the boots also because it was comfy and cute all at once. AND THEN I added a red plaid scarf because I love red and navy blue together, but I also realized that the scarf had forest green stripes in it and it was like everything was right in the world.
This day, I woke up feeling so tired that I just wanted to be comfy and cozy so I decided to wear my comfiest black jeans with this hugely oversize sweater, but leave it untucked so it was less styled and more about comfort. I also keep on wishing I had knee high black boots that don’t have a heel so I can wear them when it’s cold, so I put on my Doc Martens instead because it’s the closest alternative I own. Note to self: PLEASE buy flat black boots so you can be warm and also cute!!!!
This day I woke up not feeling too great. I was feeling uninspired and just generally in a bad mood. I always get really frustrated around the holidays and today I was really feeling it. But instead of shutting myself down and closing out, I decided to just talk about how I was feeling to someone and it truly helped me feel better within a few minutes. I can really struggle to pull myself out when I’m in a bad mood, but I genuinely feel like when I push myself to talk about it, I’m always better off in the end. For my outfit, I had no idea what to wear, forgot all my accessories and was basically not having it today, so I decided to keep things neutral and a little boring if you ask me. I’m feeling so uninspired lately when it comes to my outfits and I’m in desperate need of a way to get back in the groove of styling again!
This day I was so excited about my outfit, you have no idea! It was a day where I actually felt like I put something today and it felt like it was my sole idea, without looking at anyone else for inspiration. I was feeling really good about this one! Overall, I actually didn’t feel too great this day, I was tired and just ready to have the weekend to relax. And while I actually did not even relax over the weekend, it was nice to not be at work for 2 days!
On Saturday I went to a birthday party in Brooklyn at the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club so I wanted to be comfy, but still look cute. So after several outfit changes, I finally decided on this one and I was pretty happy with it until I got to the place and there was 3 other girls wearing the same outfit! How embarrassing! I genuinely thought I had on a pretty unique outfit so I was in for a surprise. But I looked around and saw like 6 other girls wearing matching outfits (unclear if it’s on purpose or not) so I basically just got over it and laughed it off. Still a cute outfit, though!
