Have I ever mentioned how much I love instagram? I’ve made a lot of great friends through instagram and have been able to get to know fellow bloggers. Whats great about instagram is you can connect with people you have never met on a whole new level. I recently had the opportunity to find an outfit for my husbands casual holiday party. I have a very simple, casual style so I wanted something that I felt comfortable in. Yesterday I went to Sears to see what I could find and then did something completely out of my norm..I asked my instagram friends to vote on the outfit I would buy!
I’m going to be honest I cringed at the thought of everyone picking one of the outfits that was a little more dressed up than I would usually pick. It was stylish but the outfit is the one that I was least comfortable in. I’m trying to step out of my comfort zone and thought it would be fun to see if everyone picked it.
Luckily everyone picked the one I thought was the perfect balance for me.
Outfit number three is the outfit I would have picked last and outfit number two is the one I WOULD have picked. Outfit 2 was SO me. It was basic, simple, no patterns, and a neutral color. Does that sound boring? HA! Its honestly what the majority of wardrobe looks like.
Outfit number one was secretly my favorite. It wasn’t too dressy to the point that I would be uncomfortable but it was dressy enough that I can wear it to parties or dates with the hubs. What I like about the outfit is that I can pair it with jeans for a casual lunch date outfit or with black pants for a more formal event. Oh and I also bought a watched that looks like a bracelet to go with the outfit. Its hard to see in the picture but I love it!
Have you watched the latest Sears commercial? I think its hilarious! She’s wearing some seriously adorable outfits in that video. I like how she’s quietly revealing where she purchased them in the beginning then basically yelling it at the end. Oh and the dentist part! HA! That’s exactly how I felt when I told my neighbor about my new outfit, but I’m really excited with the one I purchased. #styleSurprise
