Currently at work in glasses. Everyone keeps telling me I look like a professor/smart. Thanks? So are you telling me I look dumb without them?
First impressions are a big deal. I remember my freshman year of college, I got dressed up the first day of school. Curled my hair, picked out my outfit days ahead of time....and as a science major, I look back on my decisions and wonder what my professors thought.
I have been underestimated many times because of my appearance. I later even had a science professor tell me they underestimated me (until I Aced the first test). So now, on the first day of class, I rock my glasses. I don't wear anything that makes me stand out, because I don't want to be thought of in a way that belittles my intelligence.
As a girl who dresses in a more modest and classic way, I sometimes struggle with finding something that adds a little flare to my outfit. Especially during the week when I am not always trying to make a fashion statement.
I want people to look back and remember who I was as a person, not my outfits. I need comfort that still looks classy and polished...and I need my preppy style toned down a notch. My 'go-to' outfits usually consist of a cardigan and corduroys or cute trousers in the winter. Yet, I don't want to look completely boring, so yes...I spice it up with headbands, scarves...and my flats.
I have found that the easiest way to add that flare I so desire in my wardrobe is by adding a pair of fun flats. A few of my favorites are shown above (but not limited to). They are versatile, and can dress up a pair of jeans, or can be worn as a comfortable alternative to heels.
What are your favorite flats to flaunt?
Thanksgiving is so soon!
Y'all better be listening to Christmas music!
