I look sort of tired and constipated in the first photo. I also didn’t do my hair or makeup. Ah well. That’s what a blizzard does to a person.
So, here is what I wore for Blizzaster 2011:
I used a vintage feature while photo editing because it reminds me of my parents’ pics of the Blizzard of ’78 in Ohio.
K. So. The sweater is a gigantic dramatic one from Victoria’s Secret. I love it. I love the drama. However it’s also completely cozy.
The cords are Old Navy in an olive green. I love deep jewel tones with neutrals.
The clogs are Candies. Um. Okay. So I actually wore snowboots most of today, but the Candies were part of the concept of the outfit.
In order to remain decent, I put on a black tshirt underneath the sweater. Otherwise it would have Boob-saster 2011.
I suppose I could have bothered to accessorize, but I kind of forgot because I was so worried about getting to work!
What a start to this challenge!
Still, I think the 30 for 30 is about real life, and this was absolutely a nuts real life kind of day!!! It’s funny because my day job has a pretty conservative business dress code…that is to say NOT business casual. But this week of all weeks we have had three jeans days in a row because of the weather. I chose cords instead because I felt like they would repel snow better than jeans. I was right! They dried really quickly, and the texture helped brush the snow off. I mused on a friend’s blog that a cord skirt might have been ideal (she bravely donned a skirt today).
Tomorrow will present another fashion challenge. The windchill is supposed to be 30 below zero!!! I have no idea what I’m going to wear. Sort of. I know I’ve got 30 choices!
