Dressing Myself

I recently came across Outfit Posts blog and found myself scrolling through. I thought to myself "I have a shirt like that" and "that would be perfect for work." So I started bookmarking outfits, and referring to  them when I was picking out work clothes.

It may sound silly, but this has really changed things for me. I'm finally dressing like (1) an adult, (2) fashionably, and (3) in a way that flatters me and makes me comfortable. No more sweatshirts or gym shoes to work, no more worn out clothes. Finally taking things out of the closet or dresser, that I haven't worn recently, often, and in a few cases, ever!

So, as a tribute to Outfit Posts author MK:

This is loosely based on what seems to be one of MK's go-to looks. A simple navy tank, gray cardigan, skinny jeans and brown boots.

Boots: Miz Mooz Blake boots (no longer available- bought at Nordstrom Rack)

Top: Blue sleeveless, bought at Marshall's.
Bottom: Mossimo Skinny Jeans Cardigan: Mossimo (clearance at Target)
Do check out MK's blog. I used her posts as a template here. I like her taste in clothes, and love that I am finally figuring out how to assemble my own outfits!
