Never in my life have I been called trendy. Or if I have been, it was likely said mockingly behind my back. I was the girl whose pants were always too short. I was the teenager who decided bell bottoms and platform shoes were cool (this was not the general consensus at the time). I was the young adult who lived almost entirely in unisex t-shirts and jeans because I didn't know how to dress for my body shape and size.
It is only in recent years (i.e., post-weight-loss) that I've begun to pay fashion any mind whatsoever. Being the penny-pincher I am, I don't subscribe to any magazines though, much less fashion magazines, so I looked to the all-knowing Internet. I probably spent hours browsing Pinterest for current trends, looking at photos from the latest runway shows, searching through street style galleries. Still, I was left with no idea which direction to take this challenge.
I went to every thrift store in the area searching for some inspiration and found none. In the end, I gave up on trying to be super trendy. I decided to simply show you what I wore on yesterday, an outfit I felt cute wearing, whether it's "right now" or "so last season."
Top: $2 thrifted // Pants: $4 thrifted // Shoes: $4 thrifted // Necklace: Granma's faux pearls
Tourmaline ring: $25 Etsy // Pink CZ studs: old, like from when I was a little girl
