hiding under a massive sun hat soaking up the sun on the beach the lovely Corey of Call Me Brazen Vintage graciously agreed to guest post and I love that she got political!
It’s no secret that it’s an election year. Everywhere you turn political ads and debates have begun to saturate the airwaves. Lately, I’ve been attending a lot of municipal meetings (which are filmed) and writing about them for a local paper. All of these factors combined really have me thinking about what to wear to these events and furthermore, what to wear to the polls in November. I know you’re thinking, “um..that’s still four months away.”. True, but you think Jackie O. waited till the last minute to figure out what she was going to wear? You shouldn’t either.
Let’s face it: the power suit is dead, which helps make room for much better and more flattering alternatives that don’t involve shoulder pads.

As you stride into the voting booth, you’ll be armed not only with confidence in your candidate choices, but also in your striking ensemble. Now it’s time to toss that stylish trench over your arm and traverse to your favorite local spot to await the results with your friends and vino.

Ever have one of those days when you wake up and feel totally uninspired by what your closet has to offer? Well this is outfit is a direct product of that type of feeling and if I didn’t have to be at work by 9am I would probably still be standing in my closet with a blank look on my face. If I don’t plan, or at least think about my outfit the night before it’s a total crap shoot. Sometimes I end up throwing together great combinations but other times… well it just isn’t pretty.
When nothing in my closet jumps out at me I opt for comfortable, casual clothes. For me it doesn’t get much more comfortable than this red skirt from Downtown Threads (seen here & here). It just fits and flatters in all the right ways and works with so many other things in my closet (even though it’s the only red article of clothing I own). I don’t know why but for some reason I always wear this skirt with blue tops. Maybe it’s the patriot in me of the fact that I have no idea how to style red on a redhead but for some reason I always end up looking like the fourth of July.
What do you wear when you’re feeling uninspired by your wardrobe? Do you plan your outfits out or do you just wake up and go?
