Clothes & Pizza

My husband came up with this blog post title, I take no credit (blame) for it. I was never really a “good girl” or a “bad girl” growing up. I got decent grades and played sports in high school, but I definitely also went through that quintessential teenage rebellious phase. In retrospect, if anything, I was maybe a good girl pretending, for a short while, to be a bad girl.

And as for the present? Don’t let the tattoos fool ya, I’m as straight laced as they come.

This look is both a little bit punk rock and a little bit prep school. Funny how concepts that appear to be on opposite ends of the fashion spectrum: the insulated innocence of private school and the exhibitionist anti-establishment of punk rock—actually go together really seamlessly. I guess they’ve already got the plaid print and patched insignia in common.

I am probably as far from a punk rocker as they come, and that’s the best part about fashion: you can be anything you want to be. You can temporarily try on a genre without having to commit to a lifestyle. I can be a sporty athleisure gal one day, and a earthy bohemian babe the next, simply by switching up my outfit. I love to try on different personas depending on my whereabouts and mood. Sometimes it’s really fun to not think about yourself or your own reality, and dress up as another character in another time, in another world.

I don’t call it being phony, I call it being experimental. See another (albeit kinda similar) way I styled this jacket here.

Who or what is your favorite character to channel with your wardrobe?
