I wear clothes.

And we’re back with Saturday’s fashions! Although… I… forgot what I was going to say.

Oh well.

I’m prepared. You never know when it might start raining right through the roof! Seriously. What? It could happen!

Okay. Fine. Maybe it couldn’t.

This week’s outfits:

But wait, you say, there are more than seven outfits!

Well. That’s because… I wear a lot of clothes. (Or maybe I only had two the week before and it wasn’t worth posting a vote.)

My favorites are Double Take and Happiness. (You should know why. Colors, patterns, more colors, more patterns… yeah.)

Excluding the first two pictures (not so hot on those), I feel like I’ve finally found my zone of style this past week. I don’t know what it was about the week, but… I think I’ve just given myself leave to wear the same staples over and over again. (Did you notice that I wore that brown belt in half of these outfits? And that there’s only one outfit that DOESN’T have a belt?)

How To Dress Like Mara:

  1. Find a pattern.
  2. Find another pattern.
  3. Add it to the first one.
  4. Combine with multiple colors.
  5. Never wear pants.
  6. Always belt things at the waist.
  7. Rarely wear flat shoes.
  8. Flowers.
  9. Owls.
  10. Did I mention patterns?
  11. Or belts?
  12. And colors?
  13. Shiny things are also good.
  14. Never buy anything full-price
  15. Constantly shop at Goodwill.

Yeah. That’s pretty much it.

I just realized that, since I’m cheap very thrifty, the average price of one of my outfits is $29 (that’s clothing items, jewelry, AND shoes altogether. The most expensive outfit this week was $38.99). There is not one outfit I’ve worn this week that didn’t have an item from Goodwill in it.

So… y’know.

I’m off to watch some friends play soccer. I can’t play because my pants don’t fit, and it’s not that easy to play soccer in a skirt. Not that I’ve tried, or like playing soccer… or wearing pants… but sometimes it gets awkward just hanging around the park while my friends run around kicking things and getting bloody noses. I mean, seriously. I so (do not) want to participate!
