Wearing: Delousion sequin jacket (find here), Vintage maxi vest, Asos jeans, Vagabond shoes
A few posts back you can read about my idea of re doing my blog. I want to give
it a whole different look and I want my photos to be of a better quality. In the end,
the overall lay out should be better than what it is now.
I have also been laying my style under the microscope and I have come
to the conclusion that it’s time for me to step my game up.
I am not saying that I’m not satisfied with the outfits I wear, but I’m aware
of my tendencies. One of these tendencies is playing it safe. I would
almost say that it’s laziness. Matchy-matchy and picking black items to match with
if I don’t have the time to think of anything better. This should stop. There’s this thing
called styling and that has nothing to do with playing it safe.
I already know where the problem begins with: I have to many plain items
in my closet. What I need are prints and some perfect basics. I admit that for example, I
do not have a white oversize top nor a blouse. And I should definitely try
some more coloured cardigans and add some shoes to my wardrobe that aren’t
black, brown, burgundy or white. First world problems.
In this outfit I’ve been playing it safe, matching my sequin jacket to an
all black outfit. I felt like I needed to dress down the colorful jacket and I must
say that I love this look, but what if I had actually gone
crazy with a yellow top and striped pants with purple shoes?
I may have surprised myself…
Am I the only one who craves a style upgrade some times? Let me
know about your thoughts!
