It’s a rainy afternoon in Boston, and since I knocked out a workout before work this morning, I’m enjoying some couch time and catching up on laundry.
I’ve also been doing some thinking about Fashion Friday. I originally started posting photos of outfits after my first week of working full-time because I’d never needed to wear anything other than jeans on a typical day and I wanted to challenge myself to mix up my wardrobe. Snapping pictures of my outfits was a way to hold myself accountable for the challenge and ensure that I didn’t end up wearing black pants and a button-up every day. While I think fashion friday pics have helped me do this, I’ve always felt really silly taking pictures of myself and sharing my outfits with the world, especially when I’m wearing something boring and feeling frumpy (aka Wednesday’s pic. below). It’s also just a burden to have to ask Matt to take my picture or worry about setting up the tripod at 7:30 am, when I’d rather be eating oatmeal like a zombie. It seems people like the concept based on previous comments, but I think I’m ready to discontinue the daily pictures of work outfits. Sorry to those who liked it!
That being said, I’m still very much obsessed with clothing, shopping, and all things fashion, so I’d like to continue with the tradition of fashion friday. My hope is that I will be able to share fashion inspirations and the occasional outfit with you without feeling the pressure to snap a dumb photo every morning.
So enjoy the last original fashion friday!
I’m thinking a beer and basketball are in my short-term future. I’m also thinking about the devastation in Japan and all of those who are affected by the quake and the aftermath:(
