O.O.T.D. x 1 Week

Awkward Girl, Beauty, Fashion, Workplace

There’s definitely a theme to my outfit choices since working at Anthropologie…go figure.  It seemed a good time for this post as I am wrapping up my time there for this holiday season.  The rewards of working there have far surpassed my expectations of just fueling my shopping habit.  I found working with the strong, confident, beautiful women (and one man) both inside and out, gave me so much inspiration and a renewed excitement and confidence in myself.  The positive and encouraging atmosphere was so refreshing compared to my stuffy office job, and really promoted creativity and self expression through fashion.

New Year’s Eve Outfit Inspiration

Awkward Girl, Curated, Fashion, Holidays, Quick Read

I’m pretty sure every girly girl, myself included, pictures a little, sparkly, dress for New Year’s eve.  Since I already wore my sequin dress for my birthday this year I’d like to go in a different direction for New Year’s eve.  Something bold and cozy…I’m thinking a crop sweater and soft, leather, skirt.  Maybe a matching two piece ensemble?  Now that I’m out of college and truly in my mid-twenties, I am not going to freeze my ass off in a tiny, revealing outfit.  So here are my New Year’s eve outfit ideas, let me know what you think!  And please feel free to post your own outfits in a comment, I’d love to see what everyone else is wearing.

The theme of my choices is texture.  I think a variety of textures paired together can make an outfit go from flat and simple to eye catching and interesting.  I love the contrast of the leather skirt paired with bold, metal jewelry and the silk culottes with a thick, knit sweater.  Try something out of the box for the New Year, it’s a great time to break out of your comfort zone!
