Romper: Avalon Exchange; Shoes & Shades: Rue 21; Earrings: Thrifted
I take fashion very seriously, but I also approach it like a challenging, exciting game. I first devise a strategy: I write down what's in my wardrobe to see what I'm working with. (You should try it - it's quite enjoyable, especially during boring meetings.) I then come up with a plan: I select an outfit for each event I have coming up, trying not to schedule the same outfit twice with the same people. I use trial and error: I see how different pieces look together to decide whether I should wear it or forget it. Of course, there are a few misses. (Even a cute dress couldn't remove the lab coat look of this long white jacket I mistakenly bought - I shudder at the memory.) When I have an outfit triumph, I feel positively giddy. Like, finally-beating-that-ridiculous-level-in-Super Mario Bros.-good.

It's important to remember, though, what the objectives are in this fashion game. It is not to dress "better" than anyone else. It is not to spend the most money, rigidly follow trends even if you don't like them, or to wear something you think you "should" to create some sort of image. The goal is to dress in the best way you can with your own style! Think of it like a game of chess where you're the Queen and can move in any direction you so choose. No matter what others say, focus on enjoying every move - and outfit choice - you make. Forgive and forget the moves that don't work out - each new day is another chance to nail your outfit. Once you've mastered that mindset, you will always get a checkmate.

And speaking of checks, my new romper deserves a triple crown. It's a one-piece wonder, it's got a summery (and on-trend) gingham pattern, and it only cost me $1! See, fashion is fun. Now, what to wear tomorrow. . .
Let's play!
Is there anything cuter than heart-shaped sunglasses?
When I try to look serious in my photos, I end up looking mad. Tyra would rip me apart. LOL
