OUTFIT: My formula - blazer, platforms, button-up and stripes

This outfit is so me.  So, whether you like it or not may determine whether you will like this blog.  However, I think this outfit represents where I'm coming from, but not necessarily where I'm headed.  Why do I like it?  Stripes.  Did I mention stripes?  Dark blazer - both the dark and the blazer.  Button-up shirt (although I always struggle with finding ones that fit me right).  Pop of style with the red platforms.  And, did I mention stripes?  My style.

Where do I see myself going?  I'd like to try some different silhouettes (maybe a NON-pencil skirt someday?), as well as some lighter colors (see this post on my fashion goals), and NON-stripe patterns.  So, tune in next time for an all new me.  No, not really, but I do hope this blog will show some subtle changes in my style over time.  We can all improve, right?

Outfit details follow pictures.

    1. Thanks! Neutrals are my favorite, especially with a pop of color thrown in somewhere.
