Rocking the animal print and red patent wedges, with a whole lot of neutral in the middle.
Today I am wearing:
-white shirt, H&M
-camel cashmere sweater, August Silk
-winter white corduroy skirt, J. Crew
-brown tights, H&M
-red patent wedges, Target
-tan belt, H&M
-fuzzy leopard hat, H&M
To be honest, I've been feeling a little dull this week outfit-wise. I like the fun pops with the hat and shoes, but wish I felt more inspired to mix up the pieces I'm wearing in new and interesting ways, rather than just pairing a rather standard long sleeved-tee + sweater + skirt together.
I think a big (pun?) part of the problem is that I'm a little heavier right now than usual/I'd like to be, and it limits the extent to which I can layer shirts over dresses, etc. Since I'm working with a relatively expansive but static wardrobe, I need to make my current weight work within the context of what I own. I'd love to say that I'll make more healthful food choices or work out, but I am terrible at sticking to any form of regimen. I don't really think I have the right to complain with absolutely zero effort on my part at changing. For now, I'm sucking it up until I take some measures to ameliorate the situation. Still, I do know that I would have many more options if I didn't have to worry about how I looked with a shirt, vest and sweater layered over eachother.
Does this resonate with anyone else out there? How does your body image shape what you wear- or don't?
