Life Uniform

Work has been pretty slow today, so I've been amusing myself with polyvore. Have you ever tried it? You can make fun outfit collages. While I was playing around with the site, I started thinking about how I want to have a personal style that's comfortable, classic, and colorful. I put together little collages of what I'd like my "life uniform" to look like.

My winter uniform:

My summer uniform:

Comfy Summer Uniform

You will never see me wearing skinny jeans, pencil skirts, short shorts, or two-piece bathing suits. I'm all about figure-flattering and modest clothing. True fact: Unless I'm at the gym, I always wear a camisole underneath my t-shirt. I'm weird like that.

Although Adam has probably never once thought about personal style, he also tends to choose comfy, classic and colorful items. He wears mostly button-downs & jeans in the winter and polos & chino shorts in the summer. And gray converse. They're our favorites.

You will never see Adam wearing striped polos or v-neck shirts. Both make him look super skinny and he doesn't need any help in that department.

We mostly shop at Target and Land's End Canvas. Adam also has a few things from Old Navy, Gap & Threadless and I have a few things from Ann Taylor Loft, J. Crew & Anthropologie. If money was no option, all our clothes would be purchased from Boden. Their stuff is right my alley.

P.S. Today is my birthday! Thanks for having me twenty-two years ago, Mom and Dad!
