I was reading "Fashion Confessions of a Mommy" at http://fashiondivamommy.blogspot.com/, from a fellow mom blogger. In her latest post she touched on planning your wardrobe, and it made me think of all the days I spent looking through my wardrobe trying to pull something together. I remember all the times I was late to events, not even feeling that great about how I looked. One day while watching one of those "You really can't dress" shows, I had an epiphany. CJ - you need a Uniform!
Right now I'm into "The Flirt" jeans from Old Navy. They fit my shape well, and if you catch a great sell, they may only be 10 bucks.
The key to not looking like a carbon copy of yourself is in the accessories. Today, I actually went Chanel style with lots of silver 70s necklaces and a 50s style swing jacket. It was fun and comfortable. Tomorrow I might wear my brown velvet Guess jacket, Beatles long sleeve tee and a gold pashima! Easy Peasy.
Here I am in my Old Navy Flirt Jeans ($10), Target Tee ($7), Old Lady Silver Necklaces ($2), Denim Motorcycle Jacket ($12.99). I'm no Lady GA GA or Rihanna, and my jacket lapel is a little cock-eyed - but I looked pretty good for a day out with my girls.
