So, I'm not very stylish. My jeans are mostly too long and thus cuffed (I can't be bothered to hem my own pants!). My shirts are all solid colors or have some sort of nerdy math joke. I mean, not terrible, but not great either. Especially since doing my make up is rare and doing my hair is rarer. Sigh.
But I have decided that this is my next undertaking. I feel like I have sewing, cooking and cleaning down, so my next goal is clothing.
My friend Mandy linked to The Tiny Twig's new website - who just happens to be having a great series on style!
Just what I need!! Today she wrote about using Pinterest to figure out your style. I had actually never pinned any clothing pictures, so I've been on the lookout. I basically know what I like, it's just a matter of pulling it together for myself!
Jumping the gun a bit, I did a little sale shopping at Target today. Coral was my obsession. Can you tell??? (This is a VERY hard color to capture accurately. I shoot RAW and this was the best I could do.)
While I don't know the "rules" yet, I do think these pieces are great. A simple cami for layering under things. A very soft cotton tee (would look great with jeans and a blazer). A nicer blouse tank, which is long enough to cover my bum should I wear with with leggings and boots. And a scarf!! I almost bought a different but similar scarf, until I found this guy in the sale section for less than half the original price. Score! If you are going to Sewing Summit, you will see this scarf all weekend. :)
These are summery (thus being on sale), so how can I make them wearable this winter? Also, where can I find some coral flats?
