My New Fashion Mantra


I have a new fashion mantra. Is mantra the right word?? I don't even care. Very often, I will find myself putting on an outfit, looking at it, and then saying, "yea, this is okay." WHAT?? Okay?? An outfit shouldn't be okay! I should be stoked to be walking out of the house in the morning. Like head held high, chest out, shoulders back stoked! I mean, really, why would I want to leave the house in something that is just okay?

Hopefully this means more fashion posts around here. It's not really easy for me to just head out of my apartment, set my tripod up and shoot some pictures, nor do I have a great background in my apartment, but I'm going to give it a shot! This new mantra will also be a great way for me to try new combos for my clothes (Mix it Mondays anyone??) so I'm super excited about what's to come. In fact, here's a little outfit for you that I'll be wearing today!

The light in my apartment is not really conducive to pictures 
What do you guys think?



I realized today that I've been eating like crap and have not been working on last week's accomplished goal as much, so I've decided I need two full weeks to form my habits. Alas, I just put too much on my plate, so this coming week, I'll still be focusing on 5 servings of fruits and veggies and Facebook posting. The good news is that the Facebook posting has been coming along great! haha I think I've just been a bit distracted this week (i.e. I tried to put the milk away in my cabinet this morning. Glad I caught myself because that could have been really gross!)

That jacket is really cute!! And I'm a big believer that people should try to wear clothes and outfits that they do love! It adds a little extra spice to life!

That's a way better mantra than my "Is this something that I am willing to sit in a classroom for 8 hours wearing?" or "How close can I get to wearing pajamas while still being in dress code?"

Woot, you look sexy! And your new mantra, I love it. Unfortunately for me I work in a uniform 5 days a week, but when I don't I try to wear blogworthy clothes!

Since I've gained so much weight from my medications, I've been less and lessexcited to get dressed. But, when im looking like myself, I looooved putting together fun outfits. That leather jacket is . gorgeous!

I agree! We shouldn't be "okay" with just looking okay! I think your outfit is super cute, and I actually love the background. The blue and the guitar are so bluesy ;)

That's a great philosophy! I'd be lying if I said I would join you though! Maybe once I bulk up my wardrobe again....
