Man, I love this outfit. I love these overalls more and more every time I wear them. And this sweater? Can you believe I wasn’t going to keep it??
These are just a couple examples of pieces I had to “grow” into though. I absolutely loved each item when I first put them on, but wasn’t immediately sure I’d wear them enough to keep them. But over time, I’ve reached for these overalls more and more, and since we’ve continued to have cooler weather some days, I’ve worn the Rhodes sweater enough times lately it’s overdue for a wash.
As much as I shop and am always thinking about MY style, and what it might be, I still don’t always know for sure what’s going to be a workhorse in my wardrobe and what isn’t. I have a better idea than I did years ago, but I thought by now in my journey, I’d have it all “down” and would never make a shopping mistake again. Haha.
That’s been one of the hardest (and most exhilarating) things to accept about getting older I think; knowing I STILL don’t know everything lol. I’m so much more open now though, and having more fun because I don’t even give AF. Yes, I can be mildly jolted when someone asks if I’m my friend’s mom, but it doesn’t stick around very long, and then I double down, wearing what I want, and what I’m comfortable in, i.e. overalls and a cropped sweater.
What’s the last shopping mistake you made? What purchase turned out to be a “happy accident?”
