Hooray! Ten days of inspirational style prompts. God knows I need some! Check out Kayla’s post explaining the challenge here if you would like to play along.
Today’s challenge was: Layers.
Can I just tell you I am not that fond of layering. Sure, I like it in theory. It always looks pulled together on others. But you see as someone who grew up being not supermodel thin, and with the shoulders of a defensive lineman, I am hard wired to layer as little as possible. Keep the bulk down! You know? But since I’ve dropped some lbs, and since it is super cold and rainy around Sacramento today, it was not a bad day to have to experiment. So experiment I did.
Here’s what I came up with:
Coat: Gap Outlet
Striped Sweater: Gap Outlet
Chambray Shirt: Gap
Pants: Merona for Target
Boots: These bad boys! (So awesome if you have enormous calves, like me!)
I have to say, I felt uncomfortable in this outfit. To me, the thing about layers is that they are shifty and I feel like I’m always pulling at myself. But I think it looked better than it felt, so maybe I will try again with a different combo.
I want this challenge to help me step out of my comfort zone a little bit so I’m looking forward to playing along, even if it does make me feel out of my element.
Are you naturally good at layering? What is the secret?
