Well hello my blog friends. Last time I brought you a sports blog, so I feel it is only appropriate to cover the other end of the spectrum: fashion.
As I've gotten older (I know, I need to stop saying that!) I mean...(clears throat) as I turned 21 yesterday, I realized that I am no longer interested in fashion that cuts off my circulation and heels that I can only wear for 20 minutes at a time. At the ripe age of 21, I now go shopping for comfort. But, just because I want to feel comfortable, doesn't mean I can't be fashionable. Also, I'm a musician, so let's be real, I'm not rolling in the money. So, I put my outfits together with bargains!
Now that it's fall- my favorite time of year- I've been doing a lot of outdoor activities. Last weekend, I saw my idol Grace Potter perform...it was ah-mazing! The concert was at an outdoor venue so I wanted to look cute, yet comfortable, because I knew I would be standing for a while in the cold. It's not unusual for my friends to ask me for fashion advice, so I'd thought I'd utilize my concert outfit to share some fall fashion tips with you, so you can spice up your outdoor ensembles!
Tip 1. Leave the North Face jacket at home. If you're not camping, camping gear is not fashionable. (I know, everyone lied to you in middle school.) Instead, try layering a hoodie with a jean or leather jacket.
My jean jacket is from Target and my hoodie is from TJ Maxx
Tip 2. Always have a good pair of dark wash jeans. Whether you're out to dinner or at a bonfire, dark wash jeans look nice for any occasion.
My jeans were $20 from Old Navy
Tip 3: Denim on denim is still in this year. What could be more comfortable than jeans on both ends of your body?! If you're at a loss of what to wear, denim on denim is a safe bet, but try two different shades of denim.
Tip 4. Pop of Color. A pop of color gives your outfit personality. My rule with color is that you should have ONE flashy statement. In this case, I chose to go neutrals with a lime green beanie.
I got this beanie on clearance for $3 at J. Crew!
Tip 5. Wedges! Wedges are a comfort-fashion girl's best friend. And if you're short like me, wedges help extend the leg (making you look slimmer!) without making you fall over. I wanted even more comfort, so I chose a wedge sneaker for this occasion.
Ok, I may have splurged on these Adidas Super Wedges...
Well...I hope you learned a tip or two....now go splurge on some shoes!
Sometimes I think I'm crazy. But sometimes, I think I know exactly what I'm doing.
