What I Wore Wednesday

Call me Peter Pan.

My brother, Paul, unexpectedly mentioned that he wanted to be featured in a “What I Wore Wednesday.” I told him he would be featured THIS WEEK and I figured we were good.

That morning I texted him from work, reminding him of this. But then he texted me back saying he no longer wanted to.

Now, I had thought I was off the hook, so I was just wearing some plain paints and a simple shirt. But, then I realized: it’s what I wore Wednesday. So, if it’s what I’m wearing, it’s what I’m wearing. Real talk.

But it did remind me of an important point I wanted to bring up anyway. I think that, when building your wardrobe, it’s easy to get sidetracked and buy cute things and more cute things and other cute things…only to realize that none of them match. Here’s a secret: it can be beyond cute, but if you don’t have anything to wear it with, it’s not going to help you. That’s why it’s important to buy clothes that match with lots of things.

Now, of course this isn’t a perfect science, and I would expect you to have, say, black dress pants and brown hiking boots and never wear them together. That’s OK. Generally speaking, though, when I buy something I try to imagine it being worn with at least two or three things I already have at home. That way I’ll know it’s a versatile, helpful piece for my closet.

Like these pants! They’re the green skinnies I bought a few weeks ago. Wednesday I wore them with a white, initial-ed oxford (no joke) and a black sweater (not shown). Simple. Classic.

I was thinking about getting my hair cut because it feels long. But then I saw this photo and realized that it's more like baby chicken down all around my head. I think I'll let it grow out a little more.

Happy shopping!
