Day 19 of the 21 Day Challenge the task was to wear something on your head.
When I did this the first time, I wore a hat. But it was a weekday, so that hat had to come off my head during work hours.
This time around, I put a bow on my head. It wasn’t how I was originally planning on things going. I wanted to wear a hat, especially because it was a Sunday and I rarely get to wear hats. But I couldn’t find the one hat I wanted to wear–a cute pink baseball cap–and nothing else I had was striking my fancy. So it was either a bow, or a headband. I went with a bow because I didn’t feel like dealing with contacts, and headbands and glasses just don’t mix all that well (for me at least).
Below the bow, I opted for comfort, pattern-mixing, and wearing things I can’t wear to work. I started with my chevron print tank, an over-sized “gotta have it” Kohl’s find. On top of that, I wore my heart-embroidered boyfriend cardigan from Forever21 and a cream butterfly-print scarf. I threw on my fun squid (ok fine, it’s an octopus) necklace that Laughing Vixen Lounge customized for me. On the bottom I wore patched jeans from GAP and my grey Chucks.
Check out the look.
I loved this. It was so perfect for a weekend afternoon that consisted of walking the dog, being lazy, and running around (I know, it sounds all kinds of contradictory, but that’s what we did). I was comfortable but felt good in what I was wearing, and loved the mis-matchiness (yet coordinated working-together) of it all. There wasn’t anything I disliked about this look at all, except maybe that I can’t wear these jeans to the office because of the holes. Grr. They fit me perfect too.
So that’s day 20 of this round of the 21 Day Challenge.
What do you think? Do you have items in your closet that you love, but don’t wear often because they don’t fit well into your “professional” life? Share your thoughts in the comments.
