Friend Friday - Outfit Formula

It's Friday again - the week has been running!! Before I leave on my vacation tomorrow, I want to talk a bit about my day-to-day outfit formula. Katy of ModlyChic has once again asked some great questions for the Fashion Beauty Friend Friday group and here are my answers for that!

1. What’s your go-to outfit formula? 


I have to say that it has changed a bit since I started my blog and of course it also changes from day to day. In the last years, I would have said that I am a shirt and pants kind of girl, but in the last year or so, I have started appreciating skirts and dresses and what they do to my hourglass figure. Now my go-to outfit would be a nice shirt and a high-waisted skirt, layered with a nice cardigan, a scarf and some ballet flats. I could wear this combination all year round, of course in winter combined with some tights and a nice coat! 

2. How did you come about this formula? 
I have been a fan of 50s and 60s fashion for quite some time and for the last year been reading lots of fashion blogs that have tried to utilize that fashion style. I have searched for nice high-waist skirts and wonderful dresses to fill my closet with those items. 


3. Do you have different formulas for different occasions in your life? 
As I am a student, currently without a part-time job, I have no need for a work formula. My style has been quite dressy and business appropriate anyways and therefore I think it will nicely transition when I hopefully start working in my first job in a couple of months. I do like to dress up for outings with friends or for parties though and love theme parties where I can really pull all the strings for some special outfits!


4. Has it morphed over the years? 
When working as a student assistant, I needed to wear more work-appropriate clothes and started to buy dress pants and buttom-ups. Today, I love wearing more dressy clothes all the time. I think, it definitely changed my styling, which has been rocky and emo-inspired for most of my teenage years. Now, I prefer the classy and pretty fashion, not too girly though. Some edge is ok :)


5. Which other blogger’s outfit formula would you like to swipe? 
I love the style of Jessica of What i Wore. She styles recent pieces and handmade clothes so effortlessly together. Every outfit is pretty, still practical, but also really unique. Can't wait for her book to come out in two weeks!!
