Office Apropos: Winter 2016
Four girls, five days, 20 outfits, 20 degrees
Getting dressed in the winter is HARD. What you’d like to do, first and foremost, is not leave the house at all, but rarely is that an option. The next best thing would be to wrap yourself up in fleece from toe to nose, but then you’d look like a human Q-tip. What ends up happening is that you stand before your closet and panic. You hate your jeans. You hate your sweaters. The hate turns into heat and suddenly, you get hot, which makes getting dressed impossible. Then you realize that you’re late.
You haul ass to throw on clothes — typically a smorgasbord of things that used to make you happy, things that fit, shoes that are easy to grab and whatever’s clean — then you grab a coat and cover your head and pray that what you did was create an outfit that worked.
And if you didn’t, well, the good thing about winter is that it’s long, which means a lot of re-dos.
Above: five days worth of outfits from Leandra, Amelia, Elizabeth and Krista, all trying to settle into that winter grind. Join us, won’t you? Together we’ll fight the good fight. (That means we want you to upload photos of your outfits as well.)
