dressed up like a lady: Dressed up like nothing. Well, maybe a Maiden.

Dressed up like nothing. Well, maybe a Maiden.

I know it's a little trite, but the idea of today's post is what I wear when I'm not really dressing up like anything, let alone a lady.

You know, like when you've gotten 4 hours of sleep, you have a meeting first thing in the morning, and you couldn't imagine getting through the half-asleep day in anything that might wrinkle. Not that you have time to put together an outfit anyway.

Additionally, I really like when fashion bloggers give us a peek at what they wear on their off days. If you've never posted such a thing, I'm looking at you! Show me what your less-than-blog-worthy outfits look like!

Showing pics from a schlubby day does have the advantage of letting me show you these Iron Maiden edition Vans. As if this post weren't embarrassing enough -- I went through a SERIOUS metal phase in high school, and these babies make me quite nostalgic. Unkempt days always feel a little bit better when they give you the chance to wear sneaks with cover art from Powerslave printed on them.



That being said: I can always get more embarrassing. This day wasn't just schlubby, it was cold! So cold that it found me toting my coffees (plural) back to the office in this ridonkulous aviator cap. Though at this point, the blush from my own chagrin should be enough to keep me warm.

  2. But your off-day outfit is AMAZING! Those sneakers! Your amazing hat! Your zebra t-shirt! This is exactly how a lady should be dressed in my opinion. I love these kinds of posts, and I feel inspired to do my own shabby outfit post, but it'll be nowhere as rad as yours!

  3. This is an off day? I am seriously impressed! This just affirms what I have suspected for a while: I need some Vans, stat. I've never listened to Iron Maiden but now I have 4 reasons to: Marjane from Persepolis did, they're mentioned in the song "Teenage Dirtbag" which I love, and you listened to them/have sneaker art dedicated to them, and reason 4 is that the art is AWESOME because I am obsessed with Ancient Egypt and have been since 4th grade.

  6. I agree! I think it's cool when you see someone uber-stylish wearing their regular every day togs. "Maiden" was one of my first concerts, they were awesome, my first concert ever? Kajagoogoo, yes... I was there, and yes... I AM that old!

  9. I'm having three not-even-worth-a-photo days. But a warm vest + converse, a scarf and some good jeans will do the trick. Love your vans!

  11. Would you believe me if I say I still wear an all-balanced outfit on off-days? I basically just repeat outfits when I'm lazy/too tired/busy.

    Love your Iron Maiden sneakers, hah! :D

  16. The outfit is banging! Your "off" day clothes: impressive: I'm lusting after those sneaks. No, I don't listen to Iron Maiden, my taste runs more to hip hop and other stuff, but I still want them. So bad. :)
