I LET MY DAD DRESS ME FOR A WEEK
I'm very close with my dad, and I trust his opinion on most aspects of my life, but he has never had a say in what I wear, no matter how hard he tried (Sorry Papa). I decided to give him a chance at choosing my clothes and I documented the results. I go to school 4 days a week so he picked out each outfit based on my schedule. I think he was excited to be doing this, and he got pretty into his choices.
Pink Floyd T-Shirt
Paige Skinny Jeans
Lucky Brand Sweatshirt
I have sculpture class on Monday's and Wednesday's, so I asked him to put me in something comfortable that I didn't mind getting dirty. He told me since it's Monday I should wear jeans, because that's "casual" and noncommittal. Of course he picked a Pink Floyd shirt (one of his faves). I have to say this was a very casual outfit for me, but the color was great and I received a lot of compliments on it. Day 1, I think he did well.
Asos Corduroy Dress
He dressed me much more fancy today in a corduroy dress from Asos. While picking it out he exclaimed, "You're going to look sooo cute!" It was very sweet, but I haven't worn this dress in a while and was scared about how it would fit. Turns out, tightly. It was much more constricting than I remember, and I wasn't very excited putting it on at 6 o'clock in the AM.
Topshop Cropped Turtleneck
Topshop Mom Jeans
I feel like this is something I would wear but very simplified. My dad claimed there was "a piece missing" of my crop top so he had to cover it with something. I don't think anyone would actually realize I didn't pick this out because it is a very basic look. Luckily I was comfortable all day! I just didn't feel very excited about it.
Zara Striped T-Shirt
Zara Corduroy Pants
Ok everyone, let's talk about this outfit. I was not looking forward to this because 1. These pants are missing a button that I've been too lazy to fix, and 2. my dad paired it with a black fuzzy cardigan. I kept eyeing it throughout the week, going back and forth between fabulous or disaster. When I put on the ensemble around 5:30am, I couldn't do it. I threw off the cardigan before walking about the door. I received a lot of compliments on the pants, and now I can't help but wonder how the cardigan would have gone over.
Well, experiment over! It was a fun week at school, and I was definitely happy I didn't have to think about what I was wearing every day. I'm proud of my dad's efforts and think he did a great job. What do you think?
