Claire Dunphy (from Modern Family) + Deb Morgan (from Dexter) = My happy spot.
I really love pretty, high maintenance clothing, but if I am to examine my life and dress appropriately, its a mix of casual knit tops and jeans, button ups for when I am feeling “fancier” than casual, suiting separates and dresses for when I have to get “fancy”. I lean towards solids, but like patterns if they are stripes or plaids. I have a few odd floral prints, but tend to favor floral prints in dresses. I also have a soft spot for animal print accessories, low heeled boots and leather coats. I like things that I can throw in the washer and can’t be bothered with dry cleaning or hand washing. I don’t own any high heels over 1.5 inches and plan to keep it that way. I am more comfortable in a sports bar than a dinner theater and like it that way.
When I break it down like this, it is so easy to figure out things that are “me” and things that aren’t. I know what cuts and colors I like and pretty much ignore trends. I don’t want to stand out, but I don’t want to disappear.
