Sorry for the long introduction, but I assure you it’s worth it!
Lately, I feel like my wardrobe consists in a few key pieces on rotation. I’ve worn this skirt any way possible, this shirt in a variety of different outfits and these culottes almost every single day. When you live in New York City – and I’m sure this is true for many other cities – you get inspired daily. It’s amazing how you can see a piece and immediately think about 10 different ways to wear it. Sometimes, I lack that vision and the ability to wear what I already have. But that’s why Pinterest exists and, honestly, it’s where I go almost every day, trying to get an outfit from my own closet.
You can’t, and shouldn’t, be too anal about it. We’re never going to have the exact same things in our closets. But I’m sure there’s some sort of variations and way we can reproduce an entire outfit. It’s also a great way to spot trends and get to see what people are wearing. And just from analyzing my Pinterest page, I found what the Fall ensemble is going to be. You might’ve seen it here, here and here, and I’ve been doing it unconsciously. Or have I?
Many times I wonder the reason why I’m drawn to something, or not. The first thing that comes to mind is the subconscious. You observe so many different things throughout your day, and outfits are just one more. By creating associations in your head, it’s a way of manipulating it, especially when you’re browsing through a store, online or not.
I had been looking for a wrap skirt for a few months now.
Hence today’s outfit. I had been looking for a wrap skirt for a few months now. But none seem to fit the bill. Enter Zara. As always, they can read my mind and it came straight with me the day I saw it. The thing about wrap skirts is that, they feel like a hug. And don’t we all just want to be hugged all the time? By wearing it with a polished shirt and pointed flats, it’s office appropriate. But the print on the shirt makes it cocktail appropriate. Almost tiki!
