You know how really hip, experienced bloggers have designated features for either Wednesdays or Fridays with clever names? Here’s mine minus the hipocity and cleverocity. (I reserve the right to manufacture new words at any given time, as I took a semester of linguistics my senior year of college. So, I’m like a linguist.)
As Thursday evening draws to a close, my excitement is always piqued by the anticipation of Blinn’s denim Friday and my well rested weekend wear. Typically, one item will stand out in my mind and foster my excitement, and I begin to plan strategic outfits showcasing said item. As Zoe would say, “It’s major.” It’s part of my weekend joy. Endorphins are released into my system when I picture it. The item changes every weekend.
What am I excited about this weekend?
I’ve finally capitulated to the siren song of the pink converse. As I’ve said before, I often just want to wear heels, but sometimes a pair of shoes possesses such potent character that they could be -3 inches (I kid, I kid!) and still make a statement. One of my favorite fashion statements is to sport brightly colored footwear because they essentially match with nothing, and therefore, can almost go with anything. Heed that “almost”, there.
If you do run out and pick up a pair of vibrantly colorful shoes, please don’t coordinate your entire ensemble using the same matchy matchy color. Matchy matchiness is the death of youthfulness. Shoes and accessories needn’t match your ensemble; they need to “go” with your ensemble. This concept will change your life, Ladies, regardless of your age group.
Audience Participation: What are you excited about wearing this weekend? Or what do you wish you could wear this weekend? Leave a comment and let me know. I promise I won’t steal any ideas and show up to the same event as you dressed as you…or will I? If we’re going to try to make this fashion relationship work, we’re going to have to start inspiring one another. Let me and everyone else know what item is delivering your fashion zen this weekend!
