Throughout the years I’ve had a lot of comfort zones. Some of which I cannot defend. Like the several years I wore yoga pants everywhere (except in photos, that was literally the only time I took off my yoga pants)… or the 20 inch hair extensions paired with a myspace mullet. Haha! I’ve had a lot of awkward phases in my life. Socks with sandals, you guys.
This morning I read a blog comment (on another Sister Style post) kindaaa complaining that all my outfits look the same. I thought about it (for, like, ever) as one does. And you know what… it’s true! But I’m not sure that it bothers me.
Is that bad?
You see, I’m finally finding a groove with my style. I have my three “uniforms”, I’m shopping smarter, and I’m wearing the new stuff I’m purchasing over and over and over! I’m SO happy! I really am dressing up cute every day—in fact, my yoga pants are making almost no public appearances these days.
But, yeah. I can see how it’s maybe a little repetitive too. But it’s my real closet that I’m sharing here. So maybe that’s OK? I’m OK with it, but let me know if you’re not. (We can still be friends even if you think my outfit photos are boring… haha!)
Elsie’s Wearing: Dress/Free People (it’s called “the perfect dress” and I don’t completely disagree), Tights/ASOS (sold out, but here’s a similar pair), Clogs/Swedish Hasbeens, Sunnies/Zero UV…. the usual suspects.
Emma! Take it away!
Hmm. Now you have me thinking about comfort zones too. I think it’s pretty obvious that I love tees. Always have, probably always will. They are just too easy to wear, and you can transition from wearing one with a skirt or jeans during the day, to yoga pants after work to head to the gym. I’ve only worn this alien tee to the gym once so far, but I’ve worn my two the babe with the power tees to the gym only about 100 times. Ha! I like to think it helps me channel some inner strength so I can lift those weights. 😉
And in case you’re curious, I am currently way into Les Mills Body Pump classes at my local YMCA. I’ve been going between 2-3 times a week for the past 4+ months, and I love it. I met one super cute blog reader in class already, so if any of you locals see me there, say hi.
I digress. Comfort zones. In addition to tees, I probably prefer to wear flat shoes more often than heels. I especially love sandals but the Midwest weather just doesn’t allow sandal wearing year round. But then I just have something to look forward to. 😉 I also think I’m pretty set on keeping my hair ombre for a long time. I often think about going all blonde again (like I did for my wedding) because I love platinum. I mean I grew up idolizing Gwen Stefani. But, I worry I won’t make the time to get my roots done often enough, so I feel like ombre is more my speed.
What about you guys? What are your comfort zones? xo. Elsie + Emma
