A Day of Don’ts
If you read anything fashion-related (magazines, blogs, etc) they are often full of advice on what not to wear and what not to do. In short, they are full of don’ts. Today I had a day full of don’ts, but in a good way:
For example, they say “don’t wear racer-backs if you’re broad-shouldered; it will make you look broader.” I have the broadest of shoulders and today wore this abstract animal print racer-back tank (Target). They also say “don’t wear cropped pants; it will shorten your legs.” And they say “don’t wear slim cut pants if you have big legs.” My big, long legs laughed at that challenge and today I paired my tank with my slim, cropped black pants (Banana Republic). They say, “if you insist on wearing cropped pants, don’t wear flats; you’ll look stumpy.” Me? Stumpy? I don’t think so. So, today I paired my cropped pants with silver and black flats (Target).
Is it possible I would have looked taller and slimmer if I hadn’t worn flats? Sure; life is full of possibilities and I’m willing to concede that as one. But, it’s also a possibility that this outfit looks just fine on my broad-shoulder, big-legged, flat-wearing self and that’s the possibility I explored today.
Today’s Takeaway? Try a don’t every once in awhile just to make sure it’s actually a don’t for you. Or, for added fun, try a bunch of don’ts in single day while also trying to make messy hair happen – it’s fab.
Happy Thursday, Everyone!
