I’ve decided to not only post images of my own outfits but of those that I see when I’m out and about! It won’t be every Friday starting off but I’m hoping to post one of these babies at least once a month. To kick things off, here are some fashionable locals that made it in this month’s lineup!
This romper is so cute. Her top bun brings the whole look together. I wonder if it comes in pastels.
She looked so comfy in this striped skirt and flowing top. Her hair is beautiful!
I love this couple’s outfits. I must find out where he bought those purple pants! Isn’t her dress adorable?
They’ve got to be besties or something! I love this shade of tangerine.
Did I just step onto the set of GQ or something? Guys like this really do exist!
It’s Friday, what are you gals wearing this weekend? I’d love to see your ootd. Share a link to one of yours in the comments!
Today I shot a video, got gussied up and took some images of myself for my website and a marketing campaign that I’m working on. I thought I’d share my OOTD with the images I took. They aren’t the usual 360 but I hope you get the gist.
I wore a new combination today, lace and floral. I wanted to do a semi-monochromatic look so I chose colors within the same color family. I think it turned out to be a success. What do you think? Leave a comment below!
Today’s ootd was experimental. It was cold out but I still wanted to wear a skirt. To stay warm, I threw on some olive colored tights and another skirt underneath my vintage blue floral skirt (thrifted). I paired it with a thrifted denim jacket that I wore as a top, a thrifted woven belt and a burgundy necklace that I found on clearance at Icing. Wasn’t sure what shoes to wear so I just went with a pair of black Mary Janes.
I coordinated a company wide paper airplane contest today. Everyone had so much fun getting away from their cubicles and just playing around like kids. My team won the best looking plane award and a cash prize! Not a bad way to start the weekend!
As promised, I’m posting my OOTDs again on my personal blog. I apologize for the gap in these fashion posts. I’ve been busy working on my company plans and website but I don’t want to let my recording of my thrifted fashion goals go astray.
My top was one of the items I snagged when helping my mom organize and create her capsule wardrobe. It fits so comfortably and allows room for me to layer shirts underneath without getting frumpy. And of course, I love the lace and the rose collared jewelry (thank you Charming Charlie)! The sun was shining so bright that it made this top look a little coral but it is actually more pink, lol. The pants were thrifted and are featured in my visual wardrobe post. The shoes are the only thing I bought retail from Target. Overall, I love this look, especially since the weather has been cold and gloomy. I prefer to keep my pastel patterned style all year long. While an all neutral wardrobe is common, I love the way light colors and lace look against my skin.
Over the holiday break, I sat down with my mom and helped her determine her personal style. She had soooo many things in the closet but felt like she didn’t have much to wear. After leafing through a few books and her closet, we determined that she has Gamine style = sweet and charming. After a few hours of holding up garments for her to keep or give away, we ended up with 41 keepers. We realized that she loved hues of pink and biege/gold for tops and dark colored pants. She wanted a 50 piece wardrobe so I took her thrift shopping (her first time!). Continue reading “Tackling Mom’s Wardrobe”→
One of the things that I’ve been doing while establishing my company, Gernelle Nelson LLC, is planning my marketing strategy and coming up with a brand standard. I thought it would be great to do the same thing with my wardrobe. While I am not shopping for another 10 months, I want the items that I wear when working with a photography client to match my brand words = Stylish, Classic and Feminine. I went through my visual wardrobe and pulled out the items that I felt matched these words and my company color scheme. Please let me know what you think. 😀
By the way, my company website, Facebook and Instagram pages are up. My full website content will be up by the end of the month. Check me out, leave comments and follow me. I have a voucher for a free print for my first 100 clients on the website. Sign up ok? 😀
If you’ve been reading my blog, you know that I’m on this Resisting Retail Challenge where I’m not buying clothes for a year. As promised, I have photographed every item in my closet that I plan on wearing for the next 365 days (this doesn’t include fitness items, sleepwear or undies). I was nervous about starting this challenge because I really enjoy thrift shopping. As I lined up all of my clothes and labeled them, I quickly discovered that I had a lot of choices.
It just goes to show you that I’m pretty much equipped not to shop for a while. If you think of it with a worldly perspective, the amount of clothes I have is really excessive in comparison to someone who only has one outfit that they wear out of the house and one to wear at home. I’m truly blessed, right where I am, to have so many options. It’s not about warmth or coverage, I’ve dipped into the style and self expression pool. I’m thankful and grateful but it’s time to stop shopping and start styling with what I have available. So without further ado, here are my clothes. If you want to participate in the challenge, feel free to pick out an outfit and leave your thoughts in a comment. I’ll wear the items you chose and post them on my blog. Click on a set of items for a closer look. Have courage.
Continuing on with my challenge of not shopping for clothes for a year, my first goal is to wear everything in my closet once for the first round of OOTDs. Today I wore my black cardigan from Ross as a top, wrapping it around my waist and tying it up in the back over my thrifted dress that I adjusted a few months ago. It’s not my favorite OOTD but you never know until you wear something. I think I looked pretty good for a Monday’s back to work look. What do you think?
No time to type, too many things to do, but I did manage to photograph my OOTD. Since this dress is just a tad short in the front, I paired it with some shorts to keep me covered as I ran around the church. Sorry for such a short post you guys!
