Outfit of the Day: me and the middle.
Posted on June 04, 2010
I go through clusters of days (sometimes weeks), when the last thing I want to think about is what my OOTD will be. I wake up, sloth my way towards the shower, and if I'm lucky, there's a cup of coffee in my hands before my first wet foot brushes the cushy bathroom mat (yeah, I told you W was awesome). By the time that's all finished? ...it's probably time to be leaving for the studio, so you better believe that quality time for cohesive thoughts on what outfit might make me feel swanky for the day is loooong gone. If I'm super lucky, I will have dreamed it up in the shower---pre-coffee. And then I'll use the coffee to fast forward all of it. No time for questions, just time for doing, blinders ON...go coffee, go!
Sometimes it's one word: chucks. Then the outfit blooms around it.
Sometimes a brand: Noa Noa or Stewart & Brown.
Sometimes a challenge: stay comfortable all day.
Sometimes a theme: local.
Sometimes a game: what colors can't I fit in this outfit?
Mostly, though, it's super simple: belt? (ding.) ...little belt?? (double ding.) ...the cheap one from the estate sale??? (ding ding ding!!!) ...and then the shower has ended, I'm dry, coffee is in my hand, blinders are on, and it's all smooth sailing from there, baby.
If all else fails, accentuate the parts you love about yourself. And RUN with it!
It's Friday already!!??! What the!?
I hope you all have marvelous weekends.
Shop will be open from 11 to 4ish tomorrow. Come by and see me! xoxo~betsy
