Hey! Today's post is about the trial and error aspect in my personal fashion journey.
What do you get when you mix a lack of detail with creativity?
Accidental outfit cuteness.
That's me. I try things. And sometimes it looks great and other times it's laughable. I say this to encourage others who also struggle with an eye for detail OR color. Some days you will look oh so cute! Other days the struggle will be real.
"It's cute but it's missing something."
"Something is a little off. I just don't see what it is." (There is a good reason why I don't trim my own bangs, or pluck my own eyebrows.)
Here's a good example...
It was a morning like any other morning, so basically I was running behind. This means there's no margin for playing around with accessories. In addition to no margin, I heeded not a fellow blogger's advice to pick the shoes first, and chose my top and skirt before ensuring there would be a complimenting shoe.
I grabbed at my go-to silver jewelry pieces for black, cobalt blue, etc and still have not shoes.
It's time to leave and being late is far worse than a "perfect" outfit, so I scurry over to my closet and look for a casual black sandal.
I see a pair of "beach" flops and one other pair. Option 2 won't work. The style is all wrong. That leaves option 1. How do I not have a casual pair of simple black sandals??
Sporty Beach flops. Nike.
Switching out purses is not an option. I had to go "as is"...
Outfit Attempt #1: Sporty Beach Flops & Dressy Silver
I may not love this completed ensemble, but I wanted to try the skirt and top again. However, black sandals are still an issue, which means I need to ditch the black shoe idea and take a different approach.
Outfit Attempt #2 - Camel Colored Wedges & Copper
