Evolution of an outfit

I've begun to realize lately that I have a very particular way of getting dressed.

I always, always start with the pants. Why? I have no clue. But I always go into it with the mindset that it's a 'skinny jeans and boots' kind of day, or a 'bootcut & flats' kind of day, etc.

This particular day I deemed a boot day.

Then of course, one must decide on the actual boots! Once that was conquered I added a plain gray tshirt. It was comfortable and I was sick on this day, so I was determined to wear that tee! But a tee, jeans and boots... that's just too boring! How about a plaid shirt?

Meh. Wasn't feeling it. Swapped out the plaid shirt for a sweater, and a scarf of course.
 Nope. All wrong. Just wasn't feeling the cropped sweater. I liked the teal + gray though...
Different aqua sweater, different scarf. Not a fan of the scarf. Switch.
I like... but a bit too summery. It's a chilly, fall day. How about a pop of color.... and let's add a belt too

I was sorta digging the red + teal + brown but that teal sweater is really lightweight, and I knew I'd be outside... so I swapped out the sweater....
TaDa. Hit the nail on the head! Now off to do something with that mess of hair & make-up!

Does anyone get dressed like this or does this cheese stand alone?? I just can't stand walking out the door if I don't feel like it's JUST right... sometimes that means a LOT of different twists on the same combination.

And yea, this usually takes place every morning!

Omigosh, you're too funny! I do NOT get dressed that way or else my closet would be a FLOOR CLOSET ;-) I'd never hang anything else up! Loved the red scarf and gray cardigan combo, but the cream and red is too cute together also!

Girl the cheese does not stand alone! This is EXACTLY how I get dressed too!

That is too funny. Frankly, I don't really care that much about my work clothes. It's boring...I basically have to wear dress pants every day so the options are pretty limited.

Now the weekends is a different story. It takes me forever to find something to wear because I never get to wear jeans and I want to make sure I love my outfit, can't waste a good one, ya know?

wow. i have to be honest. i don't do this. i think of what i want to wear in my head and just put it on and head out the door.

butttt i wear khakis and a plain tee everyday. so it is pretty simple.

but i do always start with the pants.

You look adorable! I do the exact same thing while getting dressed!

Carolyn said...

First - I loved all the outfits. :) Second - I totally get dressed that way.

Emily said...

love the final outfit! I start with pants too! Because naturally u need to match your footwear with the type of shirt you are wearing. My routine in the morning looks similar to yours ! Maybe thats why it takes me so long haha

I am always running late so I never have time to try on multiple articles of clothing. I just throw something on and hope I don't look like a hot mess! :)

Marian said...

OK, so now do I not only want you to come and decorate my house...I'd also like you to look into my closet and binge and splurge with me:) thankyouverymuch!

Super cute outfit! Love the red scarf. I've been looking for the perfect riding boots for what seems like foreverrrr.

Ashley said...

I am terribly indecisive, so I try to pick out clothes the night before so I have time to go through my whole closet! :) Most of the time, I still end up changing my mind in the morning and wearing something totally different!

Love your boots!

Caroline said...

Very cute! Love your boots!

Holly said...

OMG we are the same person! I will change and change and change and change some more until it is just right. And I always start with the pants too! I'm so glad I'm not alone!

Shannon Dew said...

All these options are SO cute! I love the one with the floral scarf and the last one is obviously so cute!

Mrs. Mama said...

Al said...

I cannot wait to be back to my clothes in the States! I was only able to take two suitcases, so I miss all of my options! When I get back, I am so linking up to do mimo with you :)

Brandi @ Home Team Dreams said...

Wait...this was all in one day? LOL! You're too cute!

I tend to do my makeup first, then hair then I get dressed- typically starting with a top in mind.

Casey said...

Oh my gosh, I love all of your outfit choices! I need to see more - I'm your newest follower! :)

Haha I love that you documented this. I do the same thing like 90% of the time, and when I'm not doing it, it's because I've decided I just can't handle life and throw on whatever the hell is near me.
