Let’s venture into some uncharted territory, shall we? This is my first outfit post- partly because walking my boyfriend through taking these photos with my DSLR is on par with teaching a chipmunk math (just kidding, honey- you did a great job!), and partly because I spend most of my days in yoga pants. But it’s good to step out of your comfort zone every now and then, so here we go.
Before we proceed, I should probably mention that I am NOT a fashionista, but one of my New Years Resolutions for 2012 was to make more of an effort. While I’m not claiming total victory over my frumpiness, I think it’s fair to say I’ve come a long way. However, the point of this post is to let you be the judge.
Top: Express ($10 on black Friday!)
Pants & Shoes: Target
Watch: Michael Kors
Clutch: Tory Burch
Necklace: Peppermint Lollipops
This is an outfit I chose for date night. It’s actually a bit on the casual end, as I usually gravitate towards dresses for dates. Before our urban cowboy steakhouse dinner, we trotted over to a grand opening party for some bubbly and hors d’oeuvres. The girls who run the tanning salon are so incredibly amazing, I know this new location is going to be a success (anyone in San Diego should go check them out immediately- their prices are fantastic and they’re VERY professional!).
What I love about this outfit is that it brings together all my favorite pieces in gold. My Michael Kors watch, my Tory Burch purse, and this awesome necklace I just ordered from an Etsy shop called Peppermint Lollipops. At first I was afraid that I’d feel like a dog in a choke chain wearing such a heavy necklace, but it’s much lighter than it looks. It’s definitely going to be my go-to for the holiday season since it goes with pretty much everything! Jenny, who owns the shop, was a real delight to work with and she’s offering 20% off to anyone who likes her shop on Facebook, so go check it out! Plus, we’re partnering up for a giveaway soon so keep your eyes out for that.
So, what do you think? Am I still a fashion flop? You can be honest- it won’t hurt my feelings!
