Here’s a newsflash – I’m not very stylish. I wish I was. I try on occasion but I’m not sure I totally get how to put pieces together. For the past eight years comfort has taken precedence over fashion (I know Stacy and Clinton would not approve). After 4 abdominal surgeries, I have quite a bit of scar tissue so finding comfortable pants is an issue so I break another Stacy and Clinton rule and wear low-rise. I’ll be 30 soon and I know low-rise is not the most flattering so I’ve got to find an alternative that won’t leave me in tears after a work day.
So I am embarking on a journey to style the new me. I’m going to embrace my body as it is and attempt to both flatter my body and express my personality.
This is currently my typical outfit:
Not very exciting huh? And the sad part is that it really doesn’t change much for work. I just swap the jeans for khaki pants. Sigh.
I will admit that I don’t think I will ever be the high-fashion/designer type. I just don’t. Its not me.
But how easy would it be be to put together an outfit like this:
I still get the comfort of jeans and an easy top to throw on but taking a few minutes to add a couple touches would make such a difference! And would be totally work appropriate! I love the look of heels but don’t walk the greatest in them (and they don’t do too well for my joint pain) but I’m thinking that wedges may be something to try out!
So I will keep you up to date on my journey to find my style as a part of embracing the new me!
Anyone else trying to break out of a style rut? Do you have a plan?
