my uniform.

Vic posted a peek at her uniform (which I’ve seen in person, and is quite cute, I might add), and I’ve been thinking about the idea of uniforms ever since. Perhaps it’s the upcoming trip to Alt Summit (dozens of stylish gals all in one spot!) or my impending move (a.k.a. closet clean-out!), but I’ve noticed that lately, I’ve been gravitating toward the same look, time and again:

[Plaid shirt, jeans, boots and pearls!]

Seriously. Every day last week I wore a variation of this ensemble. I’ve got five go-to plaid shirts that are in continuous rotation with my boyfriend jeans, grandmother’s boots and some serious pearl pile-age to balance all of that masculinity. And for January, it feels just right.

What are you guys wearing this month?

  • I am wearing a lot of tank tops or super short sleeve shirts paired with a cardigan, scarf, dark jeans, and my winter boots : )

  • Oooh, I’m embarrassed to say that mine has consisted of jeans, a tank or tee and a zip-up hoodie or sweatshirt or cardigan. I could not possibly be more boring. Maybe I’ll try changing it up after my birthday …

  • basically… the exact same thing, sans the pearls and with slouchy boots! doesn’t help that cp shades is having a ridiculous sale – $150 plaids/flannels for $20.11? yes, please!

  • marri — oh GRACIOUS! thanks for the tip!

    kristen — dont be embarrassed, silly thing! comfort first, definitely!

  • Perfect timing: I just noticed last night that I’ve been wearing essentially the same outfit for over a week. The same long, baggy wool sweater, paired with rotating leggings and winter boots. Winter is the easiest time to be repetitive (who notices, really?) and we should make no apologies!

  • same here: skinny jeans, winter boots, tank top, plaid shirt, one of three cardigans (depending on the day: all same, just different colors). it’s my winter look. i’m kinda bored with it, but i need the layers b/c it’s FREEZING here!

  • Our house is old and drafty. This kind of forces me to have a lame winter uniform. Though, I did get a little shopping in after Christmas :) Leggings, jeans (either dark grey or dark blue), camisole (mostly for layering warmth), sweater or long-sleeves shirt of some sort… The last two layers are the embarrassing parts. You know those knitted Ugg-like boots that teenagers wear everywhere? Well, my amazing mom-in-law got me a pair of them (faux shearling lined!) for around the house. They’re incredibly warm and cozy, but man do I look like a 16-yr-old. My second outside layer : either one of my fiance’s bland (but GIANT!) hoodies, or this sweater that I got at Salvation Army last year. It’s an old lady sweater with dogs all over it. Frolicking in the fall leaves. It’s so hilarious!

  • Woah, sorry that comment was so long! I didn’t mean to be so wordy. I just wanted to add that I just got a real job (in addition to Sbux) and will be much more aware of what I’m wearing. I’m actually really excited to have to put together decent, nice outfits!
