It took me a long time to get dressed today. I woke up with what HM refers to as, “someone else’s blues” and pretty much everything that happened today rankled me. Including feeling unable to assemble an outfit that was sufficiently comfy and chic. Funnily enough, after I’d landed on this combination I realized that I was breaking two of my own personal style guidelines: Wearing what are essentially leggings as pants, and scrunching the living daylights out of ’em at the ankles. Apparently, my funk eventually morphed into sartorial rebellion.
Not that I feel style rules are hard and fast. Not by any stretch. And I tried this ensemble with actual jeans and I tried French cuffing the jeggings. It just worked best like this. Sometimes that’s how it goes.
Do you have style rules that you never break? How about ones that you LOVE to break?
