So I've been toying with the idea of doing this for quite some time now.
When I first started my blog I loved doing outfit posts.
I've continued to do them here and there (some of them are a little embarrassing... iphone photos and all...) throughout the past year or two, and it was in fact one of my main focuses on the blog up until a year or so ago. However while fashion is no longer the main focus of my blog now, it's still one of my passions and something I've loved for a really long time. Maybe not in the typical "shop til you drop"/must-have-the-newest-designer-brand-thing kind of way (though I have my moments when I'm looking at various Chanel/Michael Kors/Kate Spade/ pieces). But I grew up thrifting with my Mom and finding fun and unique vintage pieces as well as coming up with creative and fun outfits is still something I love doing.
Over the past few months I've really been trying not to shop as much (which I touched on briefly in this post) because I really do have a ridiculous amount of clothes. A good portion of which I've inherited from various family members (seriously, some of the best vintage items ever!) but still, I've definitely added to it with my love for the sale racks and thrift/consignment stores.
So as I've been cleaning out my closet I've been trying to be more conscious of what I actually do and don't wear (as well as what I wear too much... sorry striped shirts) so that I can make better choices when I do go shopping as well as utilize the pieces that I own more and mix things up a little.
Anyway, all that to say I'm now introducing a new feature/series here on the blog called....
*insert drum roll here*
*insert drum roll here*
(I know, super creative right?)
This will be a series of, simply, outfit posts! It'll challenge me to be more creative with the clothing I do have so that I'll shop less and also keep me from wearing the same thing over and over (again, sorry striped shirts...) as well as have a fun little post for you guys to enjoy (hopefully!) during the weekend.
When I've asked for feedback about what you enjoy seeing most here on the blog, outfit posts was one of them. Be careful what you wish for. ;)
Fashion Friday's won't necessarily happen every friday, but I'm hoping to still make it a fairly regular feature.
And so now, without further ado, here's the first official post!
Okay so since this is technically a re-blogged post I won't go into too much detail this time about the outfit. But if you want to hear more about it head over to the original post on Meagan's blog!
