This week, it’s Dress Like Your Vehicle or Transport @ SpyGirl aka My Other Transport is a TARDIS week.
I could’ve taken the easy way out and just worn a whole bunch of silver and black – the exterior and interior of my car respectively – but I thought I needed to exercise my creativity, seeing as how I’m in the throes of novel writing this summer.
So I chose to Google adjective/reviews/descriptors of my ride then fashion outfits around those. Clever? Perhaps. All I know is that doing this gave me a lot more options than simply focusing on color.
So, let’s begin with consumer reports. According to buyers/owners of the 2014 Honda Civic, it is reliable, safe and comfortable. Normally, these words would be enough to put one to sleep. They’re almost the equivalent of the “nice guy”, aren’t they? And who wants to dress like that?
Well, how about this mom who has public pool free swim plans with her BF and our kiddos today? And nothing is more reliable and safe and comfortable to wear to the pool than a jersey knit maxi and a regulation white button up. The maxi is wrinkle-free (reliable), the button up can go from car to poolside and then back out to run errands without fear of looking dishabille (safe), and they both allow for mobility (comfortable).
If you must get your style on, however, how about this: the chevron pattern of the maxi gives the ensemble a bit more oomph and excitement, the oversized sunnies make you look oh so Hollywood glam, and the gold monogram necklace picks up the gold in the sandals for that luxe look.
I’m ready for my mojito, cabana boy!
