I say, dress to please yourself. Listen to your inner muse and take a chance. Wear something that says ‘Here I am!’ today.

So this outfit is pretty basic and something more of a uniform for me- peplum top, midi skirt, colorful pumps. It’s my go-to outfit for days when I need to look chic and put together but also want to be comfortable. These is basically a combination of a few of my wardrobe staples. I’ve pulled off this look methodically so many times in the past- to be honest. So rather than going in-depth about this look, let me tell you something more than just about fashion.

you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Growing up, one of the most iconic movies I watched was Clueless.
I read Jane Austen’s Emma
as a child and loved that Clueless
was basically a modern day adaptation of that. It was the ’90s version of Mean Girls
and for nineties child, it was the
movie to watch. I was so obsessed with it that I memorized the entire script from beginning to end. It was one of those “coming of age movies” that made 95% of the teenybopper girl relate to it. I mean, who could forget Cher Horowitz going, “As if!”
and then copying it down to the very accent. So since it is Thursday and a big thing on Thursdays are Throw Backs- here’s my version of one. I am in an outfit that is an ode and tribute to Cher’s first look from the movie but this time, in pink because I didn’t want to be costumey. (Exhibit A: Iggy Azalea in her Fancy music video
already got it down to a tee). Well aside from being fancy (and you already knowing it,) I also have to go to work and while I did get the “why is your skirt too short?” comment from my dad which I was able to justify like Cher many times in the movie starting off with, “Daddy…”
I am also quite proud of coming up with the ensemble as I always wanted to wear something like this. I mean, who wouldn’t?
