Guys, I took an unintentional three-month break from outfit blogging. Don't ask me why, because I don't really have an answer. No inspiration? A break from cute outfits due to the summer heat? A bit of both. Also, I put myself on a spending freeze for buying clothes over the summer, and didn't want to tempt myself by thinking too much about clothes. Actually, this made more sense before I wrote it down, but that's how my brain works.
Anyway, the break is over, because I missed it! It sort of felt like a beloved toy was missing - I distracted myself by playing with other toys for a while, but couldn't get the missing one out of my mind. Well, I found it again, yay!
Also, fall is just around the corner, my favourite season to dress for! It always sweetens the departure of summer for me.
Let's talk about this dress, shall we? I bought at it at the beginning of summer (during a brief interruption of the spending freeze) for $15.00, one of the best purchases I have made this year. It is super comfortable, due to being 95% polyester and 5% elastane (cheap, I know, but it feels good on the skin, nice and soft), is form-fitting enough to have shot up into the top 3 of my husband's fave dresses on me, and it has stripes.
If there has been one clothing-theme for this summer, it has been stripes. I have always been partial to them, but this year is extreme: Out of the three dresses I bought over the last little while (my spending freeze didn't go that well), 100% are sporting stripes.
Which is a good thing, because stripes are a pattern, and pattern is the only pizzazz I'm adding to my outfits these days. (Can you call it "adding something" when it's already there? Probably not. So I'm not adding anything, just putting on clothes.) I have been on a real minimalist trip lately: Almost no jewelry whatsoever, besides my wedding ring (every day), simple necklace sometimes (a gift from my hubby), and mantrabands when I'm going out.
No earrings! No extra bling! For whatever reason, I'm not into jewelry these days. Again, don't ask me why, I have no clue. Who understands a woman's fickle moods? Not me.
Have an excellent weekend you guys! For once I'm off on the weekend, which makes me say wholeheartedly: TGIF!
