A Day in the Life Too... a blog about modest style

A 30-something mom's blog about modest style, DIY stuff, and limiting dessert. Just kidding. We eat dessert first around here.

easy does it...whatever "it" is...

Hey guys! It's Friend Friday! Forgive my brief answers...I'm on my way to a family BBQ & fireworks. Today's topic is: my personal uniform, slash, outfit formula. 

1. What’s your go-to outfit formula? Depends on the weather and my mood, really, but for most months out of the year, it's skinny jeans and a shirt. And, who am I kidding, probably a cardigan as well, because I'm ob.SESS.ed with layering. In summer, I like to go for a random skirt and an equally random (although hopefully complementary) shirt. Hopefully I've shaved.

2. How did you come about this formula? I didn't set about to come up with a formula...these are simply the things that, over time, I've noticed that I grab when in a pinch. So...life? Life made me come up with this formula? Yes, let's go with that.

3. Do you have different formulas for different occasions in your life? Yes. When I've been pregnant, I went for anything that didn't make me look like a tent. And if it had an elastic waist, all the better. But other than that, I pretty much go by weather and how much bleach I'll be using in my forseeable kid-filled day.

4. Has it morphed over the years? I wouldn't say "morphed," but I would use the word's second-cousin "transitioned." Jeans-and-tee have been my go-to for years, but now I try to add a pop of something to make the outfit unique. A scarf, a chunky bracelet, a belt, a tuck, a braid. Something.

5. Which other blogger’s outfit formula would you like to swipe? This is going to sound like a total copout, but I'm being sincere: I wouldn't swipe anyone's, because I wear what works for me in my life and on my body. That's why it's my formula. If I were to swipe someone else's style, it wouldn't work the same for me and would ultimately disappoint me...and embarrass them, if I gave them credit. :) But don't get me wrong--I love many many bloggers' styles! Just, y'know, on the daily...I like to be me.

Happy Friday!
