I was editing photos to put together some outfit posts, and I realized that I basically wore the same thing, with little changes from day to day, for a about a week. Hence, the evolution of an outfit.
To start off with, I'd like to say that often at home, I'm usually in a sundress that I just wear around the house, and only "get dressed" when I'm going out in public, so it isn't as gross as it sounds to wear the same jeans every day!
Here's how it happened:
Saturday: wore my H&M top, Madewell necklace, Gap jeans, and leopard flats
out to run some errands.
Must not have been fun errands, I don't look too psyched, do I? While running those errands, I picked up a striped top at Forever 21. Yep, totally not ethical or quality, but I like it and will wear it. A lot. As you'll see.
Sunday: I dragged my friend Laura out to a fashion show at Chesterfield Mall, but I wasn't feeling super gung-ho about it, so I just grabbed the jeans that were still out in my bedroom and the new striped top.
I dressed them up a bit with these Fergie sandals and did a little necklace layering with one from Old Navy and one from BaubleBar.
Still felt like it needed something more and it was an oddly cool night for St. Louis, so I added a Banana Republic leather jacket. I bought this jacket when I was living in NYC 10 years ago (ten years ago?? how is that possible??) and it was expensive to me at the time (I think about $100) because I had NO money, but I am so glad I did.
Monday: time to go to work. God, this is getting embarassing. I picked up the same jeans and top, and added these BCBG flats with metallic snakeskin detail.
Tuesday: I DIDN'T WEAR THE JEANS OR THE TOP!!
Wednesday: Ok, the jeans are back. But this time with a different striped tee, this one from Ann Taylor LOFT, Converse and a thrifted Old Navy jacket.
And that's it. So, what do you guys think? Am I crazy? Have you ever done the same thing? I will say, it probably took me five minutes to get dressed each of these days, so I had more time for a couple of my favorite things:
