Not going to lie, I got my idea for this post from Buzzfeed. A while ago, I saw a post about someone’s mom picking their outfit for the week, and I thought, “Huh, that sounds fun.” I made a note in my list on Evernote of lifestyle blog post ideas, and then didn’t think about it. When my sister moved back home, I thought that it might be fun for her to pick out my outfits because she has a more out-there style. Basically, she’s that person who looks great in every style (or at least 99% of them).
Here were the rules: Back in February, Emily picked out my outfits for every day, but I chose accessories, makeup, and shoes. You can’t see my shoes in these pictures because back then I was still in my walking cast and there were only 3 pairs of shoes (sneakers, riding books, and Bean boots) that I could wear that put me on equal height with the cast. I hope you guys enjoy this post, and comment if you want me to do this with my mom choosing the outfits!

This is the outfit least like something I would wear myself. I hadn’t worn this chambray shirt in a while, and definitely not in a way like this. Overall, I liked it! Not sure when I’ll try something like this next, though, but that’s mostly because of the weather.
What was different for me in this outfit is the color combination. Dark green corduroys don’t go with a lot of colors, but I like this combination. It was perfect for cold wintery day!
As you can see, I’m into big sweaters. This was probably the most comfortable outfit from this week, but as you can see, it looks a bit bulkier than it really is. I’d definitely wear this again, just probably around the house.
What I really liked about this outfit was the color combination. It’s kind of hard to see, but I added a floral headband to this because after multiple wintery days I really wanted (and still do!) spring.
I loved this because I love this shirt! It’s from my uncle’s brewery and it’s so fun. It was a great way to end the week.
Would you ever do something like this – have a family member dress you?
