Breaking My Own Rules
Posted January 6, 2013on:
As a woman who was always conscious of having a versatile wardrobe, I have held long and fast to one rule for so long I don’t even know how old I was when I first came to this. That rule was that I never bought pants that had anything striking about them in color or adornment. I noticed very young that some girls would have jeans with embroidery down one leg and make note of how frequently they wore them. For some reason that bothered me. I saw others make fun of them for how frequently they were worn and I wanted to steer clear of that kind of attention. It really stuck with me…
Now I am in my forties and everything changes….Remember this look from Last week and my New Red-Orange Skinny’s:
Having lived so long with this rule, I began to question , how versatile are bright red-orange skinny jeans? These garnered so much attention the first time I wore them, that the question of my long held rule came to the forefront. Now I am not at all concerned about how frequently I wear something or if someone notices I have favorites in my closet.
I have several different things I do in my life with totally different groups of people so wearing things often wouldn’t even matter….But the question still remains, How versatile are jeans of this color ? How many ways can I wear them? Hence my challenge for the week to style them each day in different ways using only what I currently have in my closet. How many ways can I come up with?
Well, today is the first day of this journey and challenge. I chose to go bold with cobalt today, what will I do tomorrow? I will have different looks each day this week, then taper it off and chose one day a week for the remainder of this winter season to see how creative I can be. I felt like I should be cheering for the Denver Broncos in this outfit, but I am a die hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan, even if they didn’t make the play-offs this year….
My Dear Readers, perhaps if you have questioned the practicality of such a color you can learn along the way with me….I am so excited about this and have so many ideas in my head already! I hope you enjoy this journey with me!
Gratitude: I am grateful that although my kids are all getting pretty sick that I still only have a mild case of sinus issues(they seem more flu-like….) I am grateful to my husband for taking a round of photos on his one day off this week to help me with this challenge. I am grateful that the temperatures this week will be in the 50′s and 60′s this entire week(at least during the day).
It’s Visible Monday and I think these colors sure qualify so go to Not Dead Yet Style and see what other bloggers are doing this week…
