I’ve had some people ask for more Uniform Project updates. I’ve been terrible about remembering to take the photos! And I wasn’t sure if people really wanted to see my outfits all the time.
I’ve only left the house a handful of times the last two weeks, so my main aims have been warmth & comfort. This weekend I’ll get out to Goodwill for a bit of refashion hauling 🙂 so that my next update will be more interesting, I swear!
I just realized I forgot to number the photos. Oh well. Ya’ll are smart, you can follow along.
1 was a baking day so I spent the day in my Flirty Apron. Little black dress over jeggings and brown boots.
2 is the LBD over a tiered Urban Outfitters skirt that is one of my favorite items of clothing, ever. Also sneakers that lace up like ballet slippers and have cherries on them, that I call my dress-up sneakers.
3 worn as a vest; I think this must have been my St. Patrick’s Day wearin’ o’ the green.
This is the same day as the middle photo above but I really like these photos with the dog 🙂
4 is over an argyle sweater with jeans and sneaks;
5 was the day it occurred to me to turn the top under to make the dress a V-neck (incidentally, I was stopped on this day by an elderly gentleman who enthusiastically told me how cute my argyle tights were);
6 is a comfy day, worn with velour pants from Boden and my MBT shaping sneakers, or my “heavyfeet.” I bought those when they first came out and the only styles available were butt-ugly white and butt-ugly grey. I wear ’em on days that I have a lot of housework to do.
That’s all I’ve got this round, folks.
What’s the Uniform Project? Rather than buy a whole bunch of new cheapie items, I selected one classic dress made sustainably of organic cotton and pledged to continually work it into my wardrobe in different ways, in an effort to inject “fashion” into my days without being wasteful— of money or materials. I gave myself an “out” by saying I was allowed to buy new items if they were secondhand (since my existing wardrobe is boring). And as a result I’m no longer living the WAHM life perpetually in my sweatpants!
