Confession: My closet bores me to the core of my soul. I recently moved (I’ll talk about that in another post) which has forced me to look at every single piece of clothing I own. There’s so much black. I mean it’s a funeral in there. And don’t get me wrong I simply adore black. I think it’s chic and sliming and more importantly it’s sliming and makes me look skinny. But I have over done it. So I spent some time stalking my favorite bloggers to see what’s haute. Yes I love bloggers just like you.
One of my favorites (and I hope you follow her) is Kellie B from And I Get Dressed. I love how Kellie thinks about fashion. She’s not thinking about how to dress from a plus size vantage point. Kellie is dressing for the love of fashion.
And it’s brilliant.
When I first saw her post this on her IG I immediately fell in love with this pink blouse. Here’s how I knew it was real. I HATE pink to the core of my soul. But this blouse gave me all the feels. But I wasn’t completely sure because I’m not a skirt kinda girl. So I wasn’t a fan of how Kellie styled it. I hate white more than I love black. So I added the blouse to my favorites on ASOS (my ASOS saved folder is litty for reals) and I stalked it for a few weeks. I mainly wanted to wait for it to go on sale.
So I had no choice but to drag this blouse into my shopping cart. I mean, it was only $29 I was just being super frugal. One of the best pieces I’ve bought. I have so many plans for this top. Since it’s starting to get warm I won’t get much wear out of this summer but you just wait until this fall, I am gonna wear this new new out! Tucked in, over tee shirts, under tee shirts, with a blazer… GIRL get ready!
Here’s to learning to try the new. So now all I need you to do is tell me what new things have you added to your closet? I might need to cop them too!
