Stupid Rules!

Sunday, October 31, 2010
Happy Halloween, guys!!!! This is my costume - I am a fashion blogger. Surprise... Chase and I aren't partying type of people...or dress-up people...or fun people. We're hoping our apartment building is on lock-down so we don't get kids at our door asking for candy. How about YOU give us your candy, kid?

Actually, this is what I wore on Thursday. Somehow I heard that it was going to be casual Thursday because of the Halloween parade so I wore jeans....and was the only one. I'm totally fired.

Recently, I've thrown all my fashion rules out the window. I've just decided I'm going to wear whatever I want and not listen to that voice inside my head telling me this or that doesn't go together. Whatever, Voice. Before, I would've never paired a shorter fitted top with skinny jeans. Or wear a loose cardigan over it all. Or wear hot pink sandals. (Those are actually new.) Your homework assignment for this week is to break all your rules and have fun. Isn't that the whole point of getting dressed every day?

You still have two days left to enter to win one of three Bergman Wraps! You also have 18 chances to win. I don't think anyone has done all 18 entries yet. If you do, you automatically win.......a feeling of self-fulfillment.

  6. Nobody was in the spirit here either. I took the kids trick or treating and we got a very small haul. Most of the houses had their lights off.
    We stayed in to hand out candy for the last half and got ONE trick-or-treater. So now I have a whole basket of candy to myself. Mwahahaha!

    I don't know that I have any fashion rules to break... hmmmm...

  9. I love your rules-out-the-window outfit! I feel like those are always the best ones... when you stop thinking so much about it and just wear what you feel like. I'm all for throwing rules out the window this week!

  10. I love that burst of flowers every time I see you wear it. I'm not sure I can break all my rules in one week, but I have been gradually working on challenging myself.

  11. I love that necklace, and I especially love it paired with the striped top!

    I guess we know not to come to your place looking for candy! :D

  14. You look so cute Elaine! I never had a trick-or-treater at any apt. I've ever lived in. So you might not have to worry. :)

  15. haha I love it- you're a fashion blogger! I giggled a little. I'm not much of the dressing up and going out type either.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Haha! You're absolutely right. Why don't kids give US candy? You look so cute and that necklace is adorable.

  17. I really, really like this outfit! I have that H&M top and I love it. Inexpensive and can be worn in so many different ways.

  18. I swear the more and more I read your blog the more I realize we are alike. Matt is white, I'm Korean. We are not party people. I break "rules" when I get dressed.

    I like the short fitted top with the jeans. I think very few can pull it off really, and you are definitely one of them.

  19. I break the fashion rules more and more everyday... I am on course to be a crazy lady soon.
    For Halloween we overbought candy so we had lots ourselves and now I have a stomach ache.
    Your pictures always look so beautifully light flooded...

  20. I completely agree about breaking the rules. Lately I've been mixing it up, wearing shorter shirts with leggings and skinny jeans, wearing flares even though no one near me likes them anymore and wearing big chunky late '90s/early '00s pennyloafers. Who needs rules? Rachel Zoe says if it was ever in, it still is!

  21. I agree! Fashion rules are recipes for missed opportunities.

  22. Oh, you rulebreaker! No, it's good to break your own rules. Sometimes the results change your way of thinking. :)
    P.S. I love the new pink sandals.

  24. I used to be that way too. But then I decided to throw caution to the wind, and just wear as many colors as possible. makes life more interesting :)

  25. What rules? I have no rules when it comes to dressing. If it pleases my eye ,then it's ok.The yellow neckless makes a statement.

  28. Great outfit, and good for you to decide not to worry about what you "should" wear and just wear what you want. :-)

  31. I totally agree with you Elaine! I think that after taking (almost) daily pictures of your outfits for such a long time now you're more comfortable with your style and that stupid voice becomes more quite every day! hehe. I feel like this!
    And I looove the pop of colour in this look. That necklace turns every kind of casual outfit into something kind of wow!

    Love, Diana

  32. Ach, pay no attention to the rules. I'm having much fun breaking them all this year.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love the outfit. I have my own rules too and yes, sometimes I break them. But I never pair black with brown! Mybe I'm conservative but this is the one thing I don't want to accept.

    ReplyDelete
  34. People have to break the rules in order to push the boundaries of fashion and evolve their own style. Sometimes rules come in handy (as a guideline) but when something just looks good, it just does! Like this outfit. I love!

  35. Love your casual chic outftit and yes rules are meant to be broken : ) xx

  50. yeeeaaah! let-s break the rules and stop being boring ;)

  51. I don't know which I'm more jealous of: that AMAZING necklace, or the fact that the weather there is still warm enough for you to be wearing sandals. You're definitely not missing out on anything back here in Provo. Freakin' snow...

    ReplyDelete
  52. your yellow necklace is stunning. Totally makes the outfit =)

    ReplyDelete
  53. You know what? I totally agree.
    I find it so sad that as we grow up we stop dressing up and start getting dressed.
