We’ve got lots to cover today. Clogs. Overalls. Instagram Stories. And a little more about my style shift.
It’s basically going to be a lightning round catch up sesh. Readygo.
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m officially on a clog run.
I’ve had them in my closet for a few months, but I got caught up in that whole idea of saving them. You know, the thought process looks something like: These are so nice and I might mess them up … so I just won’t wear them today … or tomorrow … or ever.
But then I finally wore them a couple of times, realized how comfortable they are, noticed how much I felt like myself in them, and so I’m officially saying no to “saving” clothes.
For now, at least. :)
I’m denim’s number one fan girl (will someone please put that on a mug?), so wearing denim from shoulders to shins makes me really happy.
I was hesitant to jump on the overall train. Then, once I started warming up to them, there was the whole thing of “Maybe I shouldn’t wear them because they are too trendy.”
Overthinking like that.
Then I shook myself and said WHO CARES.
The more I get in touch with my personal style, the less I care about things being in or out. It’s all invented anyway.
And here’s where I get really excited about overalls:
I think they’re really going to help me with my fall + winter style. I mentioned a few posts ago that I feel out of my element when putting together outfits for chilly weather.
But I can totally get behind an outfit like, say, overalls with my striped turtleneck paired with ankle booties and a long coat over all of it.
Lookout fall + winter. Caroline’s got your number.
On Monday, I mentioned that I felt like my style is changing, but I didn’t give you any specifics. Don’t worry, I won’t leave you hanging. This is a topic I’m excited to explore with you.
But the truth is, I don’t have any specifics because I’m at the starting line. I don’t really have anything figured out just yet. Which is exciting, because it means I’ll get to share it with you in real time as I figure it out.
The only word I can use to describe it right now is playful. We’ll see.
Well, I finally posted my first Instagram Story yesterday. I’m actually incredibly excited about how IG stories feel so real and raw and not styled. I think we can all get to know each other better through it.
(And, if you were wondering, here’s where I got those watercolor cactus prints in my Story.)
Okay, your turn!
I have so many questions for you: Do you believe in “saving” clothes or do you wear your nicer things daily? How do you shake yourself out of overthinking stuff in life? Can someone make a mug that says “Denim’s number one fan girl”? Have you tried IG stories yet? What do you think about it?
