A few weeks ago I saw this pin and loved the idea of it. I decided to try to create my own spin, but once I had it together I thought it was cute, but just wasn't sure. So, I did what any blogger could do, I took pictures with my utility jacket, then swapped it out for my denim jacket and decided to take a look at the pictures to decide which one to wear. The result: I actually like both! I wore the utility jacket version last Thursay and plan to wear the denim jacket version soon. I'm also so loving my new shoes from Payless of all places. They are amazing and were only $8!
Anyone who has been reading my blog for any quantity of time knows I have a fashion M.O. I buy something I love, then I wear it like crazy. This winter was all about vests and right now I'm loving this utility jacket. I was recently criticized by a reader for my "uniform," as she called it, and she also said I didn't know how to dress for my shape. Unfortunately she didn't say this to me directly, instead she shared this in a forum and linked back to me. I then found out through looking at my "traffic sources."
I realize that putting myself out here opens me up for this, and I'm ok with that. We all have the right to our own opinions. However, this blog represents me and my style and I don't try to pretend to be someone I'm not. So, when I like vests, I wear vests. When I like big necklaces, I wear big necklaces. You all see what I really wear. I'm always wanting to provide you with the best content I can, while staying true to myself. I'm so thankful to each one of you who takes the time to read my blog and support me, and I hope that my fashion M.O. is ok with the rest of you. : )
