Always Meant To Wear OOTD

Always Meant To Wear OOTD

Hello everyone and welcome to a new OOTD compliments of my Reimagine Your Wardrobe series! About two times a year, I try to do a closet purge and I am, usually, pretty good about donating items that haven’t been worn or have sizing issues. However, I’d be a liar if I didn’t say that I definitely have a few pieces in my wardrobe that I have hung onto despite qualifying to be donated because I’ve always meant to wear it!

The Reimagine Your Wardrobe series is all about making your clothing feel brand new again and the dress that my OOTD is centered around is actually brand new – I have never worn it! That is not for a lack of wanting to, though. Take a look at my Always Meant To Wear OOTD and find out more:

^^^ Johnny insisted that a small fraction of our record collection be featured in a picture because of my retro inspired outfit!

Who? What? Wear?

I am ashamed to say that this dress has been sitting unworn in my closet since 2018 because every time I wanted to wear it, it just didn’t fit quite right because I had gained some weight since purchasing it. Even though it is a golden rule of closet maintenance to donate items that don’t fit you well, I just couldn’t part with my BCBG dress because I knew in my heart of hearts that some day I would wear it and it would be magnificent!

As soon as I formed my idea for the Reimagine Your Wardrobe OOTD series, this is actually the first outfit that came to mind – provided the dress fit, of course. I have always loved this dress and it fit the criteria of incorporating my older clothing into my current outfits perfectly. I was so nervous to try it on for the first time in over a year due to the pandemic and I was really happy that it fit even better than it did when I first bought it. It looked and felt exactly how I imagined it to when I added it into my shopping cart and it was an amazing confidence boost.

My Always Meant To Wear OOTD was inspired not only by my new fashion series but the documentary on the history of rock n’ roll that Johnny and I watched recently. Johnny is a musician and we are constantly talking and learning about as well as listening to music in our apartment. The documentary we finished was incredibly entertaining and informative and I enjoyed seeing all of the different fashions of each decade.

In fact, this OOTD has been styled in my head for over a month already because I came up with it in the middle of one of the documentary episodes we were watching. The shape of this dress is super 1960s while the floral built in button down offers 70s vibes and colors. Then, I fast forwarded it into modern day with my “Who Cares?” speech bubble heels, big hoop earrings, and a mauve matte lip.

Although it will be a while until I have an occasion to rock this OOTD in public with because pandemic, I am so glad to know that it is now a viable option. My self confidence was sky high even though I was just hanging out in my apartment and it was so fun, as always, to have Johnny’s help taking my pictures. He is the absolute best and is such a good sport about snapping a million shots for me! ❤

What is your favorite decade for music? How about for fashion? I want to hear from all about you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

If The Shoe Fits: LFL Edition

If The Shoe Fits: LFL Edition

Hi hi hi and happy Monday! As we all know by now, I am an avid shoe lover. Heels, platforms, wedges, boots, booties, combat boots, mules – I LOVE THEM ALL and I can’t get enough. TJMaxx’s amazing online store does nothing but add fuel to the fire, because they are constantly adding new and beautiful shoes every day. And you can’t not take a quick peek, right?

WRONG.

Just looking turned into just buying. But, as the saying on these new shoe babies goes: WHO CARES?!

If these shoes look familiar to you, that’s because they are. I have two similar pairs by Lust For Life that I am equally as obsessed with. This style of shoe is just pure and cheeky fun. The thought bubble mini platforms add the perfect touch of attitude to any outfit so that something girly chic is instantly sassed up and perfectly punk turns even more edgy.

Of course the phrase on this shoe is perfect, but I absolutely love the matte black glitter on the heels. The other two LFL heels that I have are faux suede, so when the sun strikes these babies in the summer it will definitely make a sparkly statement. I have always been one to buy a style that I like in all of the colors that are available and, obviously, these shoes are no exception. Now, if only they would make the thought clouds attachable by Velcro so that I can mix and match all of my phrases! 😀

What is something that you have in multiple different colors? How would you style these sassy talk-back heels? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
