...make for a very prim and proper outfit. It's a strange process getting dressed in the mornings sometimes. Some pieces seem to want to go together despite my best efforts to break them up, style them differently, or wear them in a fresh way. I think this outfit was the result of being too tired to fight all-out girliness. Sure, I could wear the cardigan with a slouchy tee, cuffed jeans, and black patent oxfords. The necklace could go with the aforementioned slouchy tee, a pencil skirt, tights, and ankle booties. And those Miz Mooz boots that have been worn to death--I probably could have swapped them out for different shoes. But doing that would've contradicted whatever vibe I was feeling that day and thrown me off completely. "I dress according to my moods" may strike some people as odd justification for sporting radically different looks on different days, yet it's always made sense to me.
Do you have a consistent style or do you dress according to moods? Are you dressed according to a certain mood or vibe today? Do you ever try to resist "logical" groupings of items in your closet so that you can put a fresh spin on something?
