Last Sunday for the "Create your own weekly series" I did Day to Night. I didn't have any real day-to-night closet adventures this week, so I'm trying something else: The progression of picking out an outfit!
Last month I decided to take pictures of all the outfits I tried on for a party. I usually try on a few things before I decide what to wear for a a night out - but I usually don't take the time to take pictures of if all. This party was an afternoon starter, so I still had some light and lots of time. I think documenting the process really helped me find the best outfit.
Disclaimer: I hadn't "primped" yet (no make-up, hair not done) while I was taking these pics.
It was a cold Saturday. I didn't know if the party would be inside and outside or just inside. It was an early shin-dig, so the dress could be pretty casual.
I started with skinny jeans, boots and an army green top. Then I tried the wide leg jeans. It all felt a little casual:
I ditched the sweater and tried a couple of different jackets. Obviously the fit on both is bad bad bad (I should get rid of these):
Next I tried some color with a couple of different belts:
I was pretty happy with the pink sweater but then I remembered that I have a faux fur vest that would be perfect! If I would have thought of this earlier - I wouldn't have this post:
I want to tell you that once I got to the party, it was definitely all inside (so cold for April) - and the oven and stove were cooking and it was toasty up in there! I ended up taking off the sweater and wearing the fuzzy vest just over my tank top. I was all pipes and felt a little tough (and silly for working so hard at the stupid outfit just to take it all off!) I really wish there was a photo of me in that tank and vest!
C'mon - fess up! Who goes through a bunch of outfits when dressing for a party???
