That title makes me laugh, but nothing is more true of my life right now! The last time I remember being actually really interested in fashion was maybe about three years ago, then I got engaged, got serious about paying off debt, bought our first home, and got married, you know, general growing-up stuff. I've been pretty much in the same old tried and true jeans, cardigan, and flats for so long now and I actually really didn't mind it, it felt good to not buy so much and who am I kidding, flats are just SO much more comfortable!
But as Gwyneth herself says (I love Goop) "it’s a fine line, however, between being comfortable and being demoralized by being frumpy all the time". Not that I think I ever got to the 'frumpy' stage, though on the odd days that I did go to Robson Street or Yaletown, yes, the word 'frumpy' did creep into my mind, what with seeing all the uber-trendy urban gals that seemed to have unlimited funds (and time!) to devote to looking like they all just stepped off a fashion magazine! But I think there is something to be said for having style, and looking and feeling good about how we present ourselves to the world.
And so I begin my slow reluctant return to the world of high heels. Right now I am in the process of putting together my spring/summer 'uniform', that way I only have to buy a few pieces that will make it really easy to look stylish and chic for the next few months. Unfortunately try as I might to get away from the heels, it is just not the same without them. So here is my first purchase, I love the peep-toe, the snake-skin print, and I think it will go well with leggings, jeans, skirts...perfect.
Once I have purchased a few more of my basics for the season I will put a few of them together and post some pictures. We'll see how well I do in my first foray back into fashion :)
Oh, and here is my inspiration:
