Two things led me to this new blog concept: I was thinking about when I used to work retail and my favorite customer was the one that would come in and let me play dress up with them while we figured out styles they liked, were comfortable in, or fit in their closet. I realized that I could kind of translate that experience online except with many people instead of one-on-one.
The second thing was our move. Moving to Alaska is no small thing and I had to get rid of a TON of clothes (which actually felt pretty great) and only keep my absolute favorite items. Well, we came here and I unpacked a bunch of crazy. Because that's what I like (I'm wearing butterfly print pajama basketball shorts right now, for instance). I need to add back in basics but I don't want go overboard again and buy a bunch of things just to fill up the closet.
And here we are. A lot of blah blah blah to tell you what this new space is going to look like. There's still a few kinks to work out (like background, lighting, and major wrinkles #sorryaboutthat #sorryaboutthegratuitoushashtagging #soannoying #cantstop). When I purchase a new item (mostly under $100) I will feature it on a Monday along with a link for the item.
H&M Sweater (now 50% off!)
Along with different outfits from my closet using the sweater for the current season:
I'd like to feature at least 2 outfits here. I'm not sure if I will try and find links to similar items to the ones pictured, certainly if I think items are still in stores.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Outfits for the other 3 seasons using same featured item:
I'm thinking Fridays will be for inspiration. Like other people, or even me wearing the item (or similar). This may not work since many bloggers require permission even if you link, and it can be a time suck. We'll see.
Sitting on a chest. Like you do.
I'm glad you read all the way through and I hope you stick around and see what happens! Monday I'll be featuring the sweater for real so there will be a little overlap but also a lot of new content. Hope to see you then. . .
P.S. To Megan and Nora, they're Sam Edelman's Tara. :)
