I started photographing my outfits back in January to see if I really was well-dressed.
I didn’t post regularly here, but I photographed my outfits almost every day that I worked in March. I found it to be a very interesting and helpful exercise. I grouped skirt outfits together and the pants outfits together. I compared them to each other to use a particular skirt/pant paired with different tops.
Looking at photographs after the fact helped me see what items of clothing helped me look better or worse. Almost every day, I dress and look in the mirror and leave with the thought that I look OK, but then I see the photo and whoa! Maybe it’s the distance between me and my home mirror compared to me and my work mirror, but when I look over the photos each week, I definitely question some of my choices!
Some clothes are flattering, some require a particular accompanying item to make them work, etc. This has been a very useful exercise in my opinion. I’ve removed a couple things from my dresser because of this exercise. And I’m not typing my life away every morning at a job, so I feel that I can start wearing scarves and bracelets more frequently. I have also keep something in the back of my mind that I heard at Victoria’s Secret:
Flared, or boot cut, yoga pants are a Midwest thing, and probably will be obsoleted by the company soon.
Leave a comment: Do you wear yoga pants? If so, what style (bootcut, cropped, leggings that are tight at the ankle, etc.) and why?
