My fashion is really nothing special, but I wear what I want and you lovely people seem to like it. My hope is that you’ll feel encouraged to wear things differently and to find some inspiration in your own closet.
A lot of my clothes are several years old, I just keep finding new ways to wear things, thank you Pinterest! I have a lot, but I only keep what I really love. When something doesn’t fit or it looks awkward, I give it away, sometimes only after a couple of wears. Someone else should really be enjoying it rather than hoarding it for five years and then donating it to the thrift store after it’s way out of style. Be nice to other people and give back when you can. I remember being a younger person and feeling like I’d won the lottery when I found a Lululemon hoodie in mint condition at a thrift store for a fraction of the retail price.
Take risks. If it doesn’t work out, at least you know so you can try something else tomorrow. Play dress-up in your closet. Try on all your tops with each skirt, pair of pants, and shorts. You might surprise yourself with a bunch of new outfit combinations that you didn’t know existed. I often find myself thinking of outfit combos, and I keep a note in my phone to try it. TRY IT.
So here we go, the first edition of From Head to Ro, special thanks to Nick Laba for the name.
Today I’m wearing the office friendly equivalent of pajama pants, except they’re called Palazzo pants and mine came from H+M a few weeks ago. I ate too many tacos last night (birthday ftw) and I really wasn’t feeling my cigarette pants and I don’t own a mumu, so these were an excellent alternative. They’re 100% polyester, lightweight and breezy and I think they were $39. The next time I wear them I might try a loose cropped tank and see where that takes me. These pants also look really good with pointy flats.
I paired these with a fitted ballet T-shirt that I bought from Garage Clothing a few years ago. To be completely honest, I almost donated this shirt last week. I’m glad I didn’t.
And last but not least, I’m wearing a pair of dark blue 4″ cylinder heels from Call It Spring $59, purchased back in February. For being 4 inches tall, they’re incredibly comfortable. I’ve survived four meetings in them today.
