Well, in preparation for Thanksgiving with my in-laws this week, I decided I needed to change it up a little bit. Buy some nice new clothes that are not hand-me-downs since most of my closet is full of those. Also, attempt to wear makeup and style my hair each day. Crazy, right?
Out I went, shopping for the latest and greatest trends. I tried on tons of shirts, 15 pairs of pants, and even a few scarves. Now, this is where you ask me, what did I bring home from the stores? Hm... a pair of jeans from Plato's Closet (used clothing store... hand-me-down), a pair of black slacks for work, three long sleeve cotton shirts, and one really fashionable sweater in the ever so popular color of gray.
Did I have success in changing up my style this week? I think that would be an epic NO. But you know what, that's totally ok with me. I am comfortable in my clothes.
So... if I'm going to ask you to try something... it has to be something new I did. Well, part of my goal for the week was styling my hair every day. I am pretty sure I can be successful in this one. After seeing Megamind in the theaters, I decided I needed a fresh hairstyle too. I was totally inspired by Roxanne Ritchi's pixie cut and confident swagger, so I went for short.
Roxanne's adorable hair.
And here it is, my shorter than my husband's hair haircut! It's only shorter in the back by a tiny bit.
Front view, I look a little crazy because I woke up to blog at 6:30 am. I have to work all day and then pack for California tonight.
So... whether it be branching out and buying a cute new blouse that you normally wouldn't, trying a big purse with a zipper flower on the front, or chopping off all of your hair.... try to change up your style a bit. Step out of your comfort zone and try it. Who knows, maybe you really have a fashion diva on the inside waiting to come out just like Andrea on Devil Wears Prada.
