Old Standards, New Habits

     I have been pretty vocal about my aversion to pants (evident by my 9 pant-ish outfits versus the remaining 49 skirt-related outfits). I love pant related outfits, but I don't find them as flattering on my body type as say a midi skirt. But in this day and age, I find it hard to believe I still hold myself to some very old standards of beauty, and I want to break that.

     The only way to break a bad habit is to start practicing a better one so here is the first of many pant-related outfits to come (hopefully).

     My transition to pant outfits will start with elements I'm comfortable with: turtlenecks and hats. I love the coziness a turtleneck lends to an outfit. While hats or headpieces make outfits go from plain Jane to fancy Nancy! These pieces will be the cornerstone of my pant outfits until I'm ready to ween myself off of them, and stand proudly in a lone tee and jeans.

Oh, and please ignore the weird hand I've got going in this pic. Thanks :)

  4. This look is so classic!! There isn't a single aspect of it I don't love, from your shirt tucked in to your too cute vest! Ironically, the look I can't seem to pull off is hats! You look so chic in yours, but they just tend to create triangle hair on me:) Love the look!
