When I started outfit posts on this blog, I didn't have terribly high expectations. I saw other bloggers do it and was inspired to finally develop a more satisfying personal style. The desire had always been there, but it's simply cheaper and easier to wear jeans and t-shirts rather than putting careful thought into my appearance. I simply did not have much awareness of fashion early in life. However, as I've settled into my mid-20's, it has become increasingly important to me to express myself through fashion.
Enter the outfit posts. Since pictures are more objective than mirrors, I've learned a bit this year about what does and does not work for me.
Worst Outfits of 2011:
Mostly, my least favorite looks result from either being lazy or forcing myself into a style in which I am not comfortable. I guess I'm still finding that line between taking risks and trying to be someone else.
Best Outfits of 2011:
December 12 / November 10 / December 26
It seems that all my favorite outfits have occurred in the past two months! This must mean that my little experiment is finally working. I usually feel best about myself when I wear skirts and dress just slightly fancier than I would like to.
Overall, I'm going to call it a win for 2011! I'm so glad that I started this little experiment, it has opened me up to so many new experiences: fashion, photography, videography, social networking... The confidence that I have developed through knowing who and I am and what I want is the most incredible high.
Here's to the fashion and blogging adventures to come. ♥
