All of a sudden, I'm feeling resistant to "trending," or any sort of sign of being "on trend" or even wearing my signature style. Probably a symptom of blogger burn-out. I just want to shrug off any sort of style cliche or codification and just "BE."
Easy peasy, right? You just get up in the morning, throw on some clothes & head out the door. Unless you are perhaps a personal style blogger, in which you think about what you wear, how you're wearing it, and why you're going to share it with your fellow fashion bloggers and your loveliest of readers. Then you look in the mirror and wonder if you're gonna "represent." Well, suddenly I need a breather, and want to see if I could still look like "me," even if I don't dress like me. So no signature mess of mixed prints- no polka dots, no stripes, no leopard. No wacky hat, no combos of white, red or black, so what do we have?
|Bella not feeling very Bella-esque.|
This is what I came up with- A run of the mill non-vintage cotton blouse in a very un-Bella-esque pale green. A grey mini skirt kicked into the corner of my closet and my only non-black or white or gold shoes- some tan leather espadrille wedges purchase many moons ago. The only thing that that made this outfit feel right are the black netting knee-highs I put on, and my favorite corduroy coat ever.
