Can you guess what's different about today's #ootd? Yes, I'm not in my usual dressy attire; but for today's post I'd like to feature some of my hand-me-down clothing! Just like everyone else I know, my heart sinks to the bottom of my feet when my relatives give me their old clothing. "You're going to love the clothes that your auntie gave you," was what my mother told me while handing me a Glad-bag full of clothes. I can just remember giving her a look of disbelief. I tend to get very picky about the clothes I wear now that I work in retail. All of the clothes I got in the past were just too big on me and not professional enough for work. Even for the casual days, I couldn't bring myself to like anything that my relatives had to offer.
What I was able to find, and love, were two items: a blouse and shorts. The blouse is in a vibrant coral pink and has a lattice weave on the neckline with 3/4 inch sleeve, while the shorts were crochet with an adorable scallop hem. I do have to admit that I felt a bit "sloppy" wearing comfortable stuff like this outside in public; I'm just so used to dressing up all the time! It's a good change nevertheless, and this taught me that I can look just as good when I dress down or up.
Of course, an outfit without shoes or accessories is out! I'm wearing: Steve Madden's wedges, Rebecca Minkoff's crossbody, and my trusty Kate Spade watch.
Thanks again for reading my post; hope to catch you guys next week~
