In My wardrobe…

January 25, 2010

Eek…this isn’t easy but in true January effort, I”m trying to fulfill number 9 on my ‘ten commandments for 2010‘…and showing the world what I’ve been wearing. And by world I mean the itty bitty sub section that view this blog (don’t make it sound easier than it is)… And I’ve joined the bloganista group on flickr to boot. So here is to at least two outfits a week on full display. Now, question is do I just show them there or here as well?

*Excuse the weird blurred faces…there are rules that I’m just becoming aware of for the flickr group.

After I created this post, I stumbled upon some old picture folders on my computer and I realized how great these self archiving photos can be…regardless of the fact I think most of my outfits/haicuts/smiles are ridiculous I just lost an hour to perusing through old shots of me through the last five years and going omigosh, I should never do that again, or wow…maybe my hair wasn’t so bad then. If you want a peek at some of my disasters or triumphs (and to see details of what I’m wearing above,

    Brit – first of all, your hair looks so great that short – I haven’t seen in that short in a long time! Love the “retro” shots of KU fashion – totally brings me back.
    And, I love that you’re posting these outfits. I think it’s a really cool idea – and as always your style impresses me and far surpasses what I’ve been wearing these days. Prego bellies have a way of limiting your options. Can’t wait to see more!

    Love your hair and your sense of style! I’ve even become accustomed enough with seeing you with dark hair that the blond photo came as a surprise flashback. And you wear clothes and pose them really well.

    that’s very nice to hear! Especially since I had my hair cut last week and I was having a slight conniption over it. It was the same picture I’d taken in the last two times and yet this time, whew all off. It’ll grow but at the moment I’m feeling momish- which in no way should be seen as negative by either of you!

    I love your present haircut! And I love ALL the outfits. But I think the plaid shirt might be my fave.

    Not to steal 2010’s style thunder, but 05-09…..sublime! Can’t wait to see what else you have up your sleeve this year. xo

    I actually think these are pretty great outfits, even though they go back years. One of my favourites is the one on the top right corner in shorts – casual, but you look great.

      Thank you Lynne! No makeup, hair not done and wearing a funny tshirt…but great memories, and I guess that is why it’s one of my favorite photos. My husband and I had flown back into the States after our honeymoon in order to catch our flight back home to the UK and found our flight delayed by a day. We quickly changed clothing with whatever clean stuff we could find and spent an unexpected extra day wandering NYC. Truly a lovely day, with no fuss and just taking everything as it comes along…
