THREADS 1.18.12

This past weekend, I finished reading "The No Brainer Wardrobe" e-book by Hayley Morgan. It was a quick and definitely a perspective-changing read. Hayley's book explains how to shop intentionally for your closet, purge your current wardrobe, build your wardrobe up over time with pieces you feel great in and how to create a lookbook to keep you inspired. Her steps are extremely practical and helpful. I'm currently in the "purging" phase and trying to figure out what pieces I need to add.

If there's anything about my personal style I know, it's that I love layering and mixing texture and pattern. I especially love pieces with a unique touch.

This outfit is one of my favorites for three reasons:
>>> 1. I can't stop wearing these fancy black blowfish booties. I love how edgy, seriously comfortable and easy to wear they are.
>>> 2. I'm wearing my new prescription sunglasses from Warby Parker. This is a big deal for me, because it's the first time I've been able to wear sunglasses...and actually see! I don't wear contacts so I'm strictly a glasses girl. I. LOVE. THESE. Best thing ever to drive down the sunny road and not have tears streaming down my face from the brightness.
>>> 3. This jacket goes with everything, and has the best pockets.

  14. Thanks so much for referencing the book...it is awesome!

    I often look at stylish folks strutting down the street and bemoan my own lack of fashion sense. The book helped me take a realistic look at what is best for me and revel in the fact that I do have style...I just needed to be better organized and not intimidated by clothing. Whew!
