I have this problem called "I clench my jaw so hard at night and wake up in the morning with the worst jaw-ache and want to rip my head off."
I guess I'm incredibly high-strung or stressed. Or something like that.
But let me tell you something that is NOT stressful: taking inspiration from others for clothing (a.k.a. copying other people's genius ideas). If you are like me, it gets exhausting thinking of new outfits all the time, so I decided to do a little re-making.
Here is the first attempt inspired by this darling Gap outfit, which is perfect for any casual day:
And here is my version:
Let's compare some prices just to top this off:
- Gap sweater: $49.50
- Gap long sleeve t-shirt: $29.50
- Gap belt: $24.50
- Gap jeans: $69.50
- TOTAL: $173.00
- my sweater: $15.50, Gap Clearance
- my t-shirt: $5.00, H&M
- my belt: free (came with a dress)
- my jeans: $19.00, Old Navy
- TOTAL: $39.50
Uh, hello?! That's a $133.50 difference, people!
That's enough to cure my jaw-clenching for good.
