The prompt I pulled for this post was to style a look inspired by Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes. This was one of the best prompts because I constantly save her looks on Instagram for inspiration.

Although we don’t have exactly similar styles (her choices can involve bold colors and patterns that I hate wearing) I often find that she uses silhouettes and cuts I enjoy. She also is very playful and experimental with her outfits, which is something I love. I tend to save her menswear-inspired looks the most, which is the direction I went with this outfit.

My oversized blazer over a puff-sleeve blouse felt most suiting (hehe), along with a pair of pleated trousers. Rather appropriately (since Jane’s wardrobe is full of vintage pieces), the pants are thrifted Georges Marciano (probably late 70’s early 80’s)—and only cost me about $3.50. I accessorized with a pair of black pointed flats and a brown belt with a decorative buckle.

While my toss-on outfits at home are often minimal and neutral based, I’ve been styling more colors and eclectic elements. While I don’t dress as drastically, I admire the creative styling of women like Jane, Tezza, or Blair. Since I’ve shifted this blog’s focus to a place to share my creativity I’ve thought about sharing outfits that are a bit more experimental for me.

As the weather warms up I am hoping to get out and shoot looks a little more often. I tend to try creating in too many ways, so balance is key. At the moment it means posting to the blog once a week. I’m hoping to share more outfits by simplifying my posts rather than trying editorial style shoots. (Being your own photographer is hard—especially with chronic illness.) I want to free myself to create simpler in certain mediums while allowing myself to devote more time to my creative writing.

Creating in any form is a process, and I’m curious to see where this leads.
