365 Photo Challenge | Day 30 | A Faceless Portrait

Day 30 - A Faceless Portrait

Day 30 of the 365 photo challenge is “A Faceless Portrait.” One girl I work with always puts together the most amazing outfits that are completely unique to her, every day. Of course she also wears shorts and sleeveless things in the middle of January, but apparently her young person circulation is much better than mine, and she never seems to be cold.

This day I was loving her tree tights, boots, beautiful pocket scarf and super cool apron. I just had to get a picture, because this screams her name as loud as her face would. And her face can scream loud. I’ve heard it.

I don’t wear a lot of color. It is a good strategy when you don’t have a lot of clothes. From what I have read on the “style expert” blogs, building a base of neutrals and letting your accessories do the talking can give you quite a bit of mileage in a sparse wardrobe.

Seeing as I’m starting from scratch rebuilding my closet, perhaps a little inspiration board will help set me on the right track. Also, I love making inspiration boards. So I’m gonna.

Tough and androdgynous charcoal and mint.

The first pair of shoes I have ever bought online have finally arrived. See them on the bottom left? I picked them up from ModCloth, and not only do they fit perfectly, they are surprisingly comfortable. I have so far been wearing them with my straight leg Levis bunched up around the top of the boot instead of in or over or cuffed.

Read on and I’ll point you to where to get any or all of the items you see in the board above.
