I don’t know why I called this opposite day except I was thinking of making Friday’s outfits something “different” – inspired – maybe “opposite” of the types of things I usually wear, and/or asking you guys to pick out an outfit for me on Fridays featuring things I have and don’t wear very often; pushing me to be more adventurous with my clothing.
This particular outfit isn’t anything too extremely different from my norm, but it was inspired by something similar I saw on Eileen Fisher’s website. Although my denim jacket is SO CROPPED; I wish it was just a bit longer on me….which is why I never wear it. My other denim jacket is the opposite – SO big and oversized (fabulous really – and on sale now), it only really looks good with a few things.
Which leads me to what I was thinking about on my way home from Pure Barre EARLY this morning (my husband has started getting up at 4:45 in the morning for a boxing class, so I’ve been doing 6 AM Pure Barre….ugh…): that I want SO MUCH to have a curated, small, thoughtful wardrobe, but somehow I never pick the right things to include in that wardrobe. Take my denim jackets, for example. If I had one that was just the right length instead of two, one that’s too short and one that’s too long, I’d have “the perfect” denim jacket.
Of course, I do also like the option of having both jackets, and theoretically, who wouldn’t want to have THREE denim jackets, each one slightly different, and suitable for different outfits? At first, yes, of course, three is better than one, but after thinking for a bit, I’ve come to the conclusion that no, three is not better than one, and neither is two. ONE is enough.
But I’m not certain I’m that good at finding the ONE. Perhaps now, after some trial and error with denim jackets I can find the ONE denim jacket, but with other things? Is there the ONE?
Anyway, food for thought on Friday! Something to ponder for the weekend. My mother is in town, and she brought me one of her DLSR cameras to play with for a while, so I’m looking forward to experimenting a bit with my photographs. The ones above were not taken with the DSLR – I just wanted to see if there was any way I could get good natural lighting in my office. There is not.
Have a great weekend!! Don’t forget to enter to win the Kendra Scott necklace here. The contest will end on Monday.
