I learned a long time ago that there are very few things that I can honestly I will never do or like. I’ll blame my Gemini birth sign for that! So when The Blended Blog chose this theme I chuckled because all I can think of are the times I swore I disliked something so much I’d NEVER buy or wear it and now I am not only the proud owner of said items I actually encourage others to give them a try!
My most recent change of heart came in the form of my wedge sneakers. When they hit the scene a few years ago I thought they were ugly and ridiculous. Now? I own one pair and want another pair. I felt the same way about white boots. Then I became obsessed and tried several pair before settling on my beloved.
There are a few things I know for sure won’t work for me like cropped shirts and the infamous bamboo bag. The cropped shirt thing will never work on me because there’s no way I want to bare my midsection. The bamboo bag? I am too clumsy and imagine carrying it and not only bumping into people and things with it but I see myself crushing it. I’m not even kidding. But in no way do I judge others who enjoy these trends. Over 50 and you can rock a crop top? You go girl! Love your bamboo bag? Enjoy it just don’t let me hold it, ha!
So Monday afternoon I had my husband snap these photos of what I wore for the day. It says comfort from head to toe! Not only are my wedge sneakers the best but these joggers are the softest pants I have ever put on. I never believe it when I hear someone say that but in this case it’s true. They are from Loft and they’re the Lou & Grey brand.
In keeping with the theme of “Never Would I Ever” I added my leopard booties (similar). Because if you would have told me a few years ago that I’d be dressing up a pair of joggers I would have said, “NO way!”I actually really like this whole look! Leopard makes everything more interesting and my love of gingham knows no bounds! This black gingham shirt will work for me year round!My favorite long cardigans are from Old Navy. They are the perfect weight for my climate and I love the pockets!
I guess I have learned over the years not to judge a book by its cover. Also? The more I see of something the more I learn to appreciate it. Seriously I am a marketer’s dream – expose me to something enough times and I am hooked! How about you?
