Anonymous asked: Have you ever made a post on what you would consider wardrobe essentials?
A few items I list are:
- Gingham collared shirt
- Crisp collared white dress shirt
- Striped long-sleeved t-shirt
- Two denim shirts: one light washed and one dark
- Two mid-length a-line skirts in neutral colours: one light and one dark
- Black pumps
- Three pairs of skinny jeans: one dark, one medium wash, and one distressed
- A black pair of skinny pants
- A neutral, fitted boyfriend blazer (I use my grey ones most)
- A few bold statement necklaces will go a long way
And to that list I would like to add (relevant for fall):
- Classic trench coat
- A badass leather jacket
- A comfy pair of sneakers that go with everything (Chucks or Keds or Toms)
- A few cozy cable knit sweaters
- Little black dress
Anonymous asked: Where do you go dressed like that? I love it and I'd love to dress fancy but it would definitely not work at work/school/or anywhere basically!
Hello! Honestly, I try to “dress fancy” nearly everywhere I go: meeting friends, going out to eat, and, yes, even to work sometimes.
In that yellow skirt, for example, I went to get a haircut, go shopping and then meet a friend for dinner at her house. Not a huge deal. It took me a while to figure out that every day is a special occasion and I should dress accordingly. I never save things for a special occasion. What a waste of pretty things!
It’s not even about “being fancy,” though. It’s about putting a little bit of extra effort getting dressed, which gives you a confidence boost.
"Fancy" doesn’t mean designer clothes or the latest trendy thing or that you have to spend hours prepping. To me, "fancy" is all about confidence. Fancy is a feeling and fancy is an attitude.
If something makes you feel fancy, just do it. Because you deserve to feel that way, no matter who you are, how much money you have, or what your body looks like.
