We interrupt your regularly scheduled broadcast to give you the following breaking news:
(Click on the link above. You know you wanna. Come on. Everyone’s doing it! Peer pressure!)
I have no words…Okay, actually, I have loads of words, as evinced by my interview. Kendall didn’t cut a single thing so it’s quite verbose, but did you expect less from me?
Anyhow, I’m quite proud of it and would love for you to share in my glee by visiting the StyleUp blog, but I don’t want to sound too insufferable and self-promote-y, so I’ll leave it lie and get on with yesterday’s outfit.
Contrast a bright, citrus-hued top with slate grey trousers and black heels.
In honor of my interview (See what I did there? I’m relentless, aren’t I?), I decided to resume using my daily StyleUp inspiration pic as the framework for my own outfit.
But because yesterday marked Ditch Day #2 and because I’d planned more putzing around with the kiddos, I eschewed the heels for some practical flats. Everything else is pretty spot on, though. Right down to the plaid ankle pants.
My only dilemma in recreating this ensemble was deciding which one of my numerous tops to choose. I’ve sure come a long way from not even looking twice at orange pieces because my winter color palette dictated against it.
And the new protocol? Well, my friends, since I’ve lost my regular photographer for the summer, I’m predicting regular photo shoot opportunities will be few and far between. Even more so when I’m at Yale. So I’m going to try something different, which I’ve actually already begun this week.
As I mentioned above, the look you’re reading about today was actually what I wore yesterday. I did the same thing for Tuesday’s post as well, if you noticed.
So the new protocol involves my blogging in retrospect rather than in advance. Doing this affords me some flexibility with the photos, both with the time and place I take them. I figure those of you who follow my blog for the prose would appreciate the change and those of you who follow for the pictures won’t care either way as long as I keep ’em coming, right? So this temporary shift should be a win-win for all involved.
Of course, now I have to acclimate myself to this paradigm shift in writing. I apologize in advance if the next few posts sound slightly schizophrenic.
