Do you ever have those days when it’s just impossible to find something to wear? Everything in your closet just doesn’t seem right. I was having one of these a few days ago. This is how I ended up in blue plaid.
You know when you lose your keys and you’re looking for them everywhere, when you run out of places you think they would be, you start looking in the places you wouldn’t think that they would be (you know, in the fridge or in the medicine cabinet). I look at this analogy in the same way as finding an outfit to wear. When you run out of ideas of what you think would go together, you start looking at pieces that you wouldn’t think at first goes together. That’s how I stumbled across this outfit, and I liked it.
I always feel either of two ways when wearing plaid: Like a lumberjack, or Harry Styles. I prefer the latter of the two, in a female version of course (if I’m being honest that’s the only reason why I bought the shirt to begin with). So when I ran out of, in my mind, sensible outfits, I went to the things I hadn’t thought to put together before.
I had purchased this blue plaid back in the autumn and have only worn it with jeans, so I was quite surprised when I paired it with a skirt and it looked good. Now this isn’t my normal style, I like sparkles, frills, and a more refined look. This is a little edgy for me. So to soften the look up and not feel so much like a lumberjack in a skirt, I added some heels and a necklace. I didn’t want my necklace to coincide with the slightly edgy look that I was going for, but I wanted it to just subtly add a little girly touch. I think I accomplished this quite well. I’m in love with these heels, they’re amazing and I cannot get enough of them, they added the perfect touch to the overall look.
So the next time you’re perplexed on what to wear try something you haven’t thought of before.
I hope everyone is enjoying their week.
