Embrace the Awkward

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall

I recently read a blog post where the author was mocking the “awkward style blogger pose.”  Pretty sure she meant this one.

Hey, I’ll own it. I feel like a dork just standing there. Plus, the wind blows my hair in my face. So, awkward style blogger pose it is.

This outfit, as much as I loved it, was also a bit awkward. I recently ordered these jeans for an upcoming post I’m doing with American Eagle Outfitters. I ordered a size six and they fit perfectly in the legs but are a little big in the waist. So, I wore a belt. And, no, not the belt you can see.

Yes, I’m wearing two belts.

I also have (bike) helmet hair.

Just keeping it real. Real awkward.

And in the interest of keeping it real, I totally stole this outfit from Atlantic Pacific and I’ve actually worn it once before but it never made it to the blog. I wore it on a Friday at my old office but it felt too casual. I admit I’m thrilled that I can wear this to my current office and feel just fine.

    “I admit I’m thrilled that I can wear this to my current office and feel just fine.” This made me so happy 😀 Casual dress codes 4eva! But really, it sounds like you’re doing a great job of adapting to the more low key office wear, and I think that’s wonderful 🙂
