Remember last week when I wrote about running late for a breakfast meeting and I dressed up in bright blue palazzo pants and a fancy top to brighten my mood? Well, I thought it would be fun, and funny, to share with you what I actually looked like earlier that morning. It just so happened that the meeting I was at was for Refinery29, and they snapped a street style photograph of me outside as we were all leaving. I was really excited when I saw this article on their website, but sort of annoyed that I didn’t style myself up and look a little more put together. Ah, coulda, shoula, woulda.
Anyway, after I got my photo taken, I thought to myself, it would be sort of fun to show what I actually wore so I made Lindsey take a few snaps on the way home. I guess the point of this post is to show what happens in reality (i.e. me running late and throwing on whatever was lying on the floor) versus taking the time to get ready and really style myself, like I did here. I think it’s important to show that there are times it is impossible to look perfectly put together, especially when life decides to throw you a fast one. *Disclaimer: I actually don’t dislike this outfit or think it’s bad. I think it was just the overall feeling of being rushed, affected my state of mind and how I felt I presented myself. Oh, and not showering and being surrounded by incredibly stylish people at 9am in the morning. Ha.
