So, at this point in my life I'm pushing 30. And part of getting older means you slowly become less and less fashionable. I'm not really quite sure why this happens. I guess its partially the fact that we're now too busy (reading blogs, in my case) to read all the fashion magazines that we did in college. And instead of watching fun shows on TV that portray the latest fashions, we watch the news and Stuff That Matters. And also probably because instead of going out to Express (yes, I shopped there in college) and blowing all of my money, I tend to be more "responsible" about money these days!
Anyway, the point is that we have a new segment here at Longmired in Life. I'm not really sure how frequent this will be, but I think this is a fun thing to do once in a while. (In other programming news, I have a stack of clothes to take to Goodwill so that means another What Not To Wear post will be coming soon) I have to thank Becky for this idea, as these are all pictures she submitted to me.
So here is the deal. I will post pictures of items found in my closet (or in this case, in Becky's closet since she submitted the pictures) and you need to comment and tell me if the items are in or out. Easy enough, right? Well, we have a few rules
1) don't be a lurker ... comment with your opinions!
2) be honest ... if I am not open to criticism on something, I wouldn't post it on my blog for the world to read
3) i can't really think of any more rules
Item 1 - The shrug. This is short sleeved and hits at the bottom of your rib cage. You could wear this over a tank or a dress.
Item 2 - The white Blazer. I know this one is satin, but really I'm asking about a white cotton blazer. I know Katy Perry is wearing it in this picture, but I don't think anyone should really take style tips from her. So... in or out?
Item 3 - The white prairie skirt. This is such an easy, comfortable go-to for summer. But is it still cool?
Item 4 - Stacked slip on sandals. maybe not quiiite this high, but you get the idea.
Okay, so thanks in advance, readers. Thanks for answering my deep, philosophical questions today!
