Election Day Style

I got up at the crack of dawn (ok, 6:00 AM) so I could get to my polling location before 7:00 - after seeing all the horror stories of 3 hour waits at the polls on CNN, I was all about getting there early. I knew I could dial it in and just show up in my pajamas. But I wanted my outfit to match the excitement and enthusiasm I feel for Election Day. I had to plan for every "what if" possible - what if I have to stand outside in the morning chill, what if I have to stand inside a broiling hot building - and this is what I chose:

My Right Fit Denim trousers from Lane Bryant never steer me wrong. They're comfortable, pulled together, and make me feel a little kicky.

I chose this Lace Inset Blouse from Alloy (available up to size XXXL) so I could toss a jacket on over it without getting too warm if I needed to (which I didn't because for some reason, it's 75 degrees here in St. Paul). Oh, and the neutral cream color is the perfect backdrop for my red and white I VOTED sticker.

For accessories, I thought globally with this pendant and a pair of gold hoop earrings.

Standing around for an indefinite amount of time (in my case, about 40 minutes) called for flats. This plaid pair by B.P. gave a touch of Americana flair to my look. Get inspired, get out to vote - and look good doing it!

  1. I am glad to know that I am not the only person out there who coordinated their outfit to match the "I voted today!" sticker!

  2. The sticker is my favorite accessory today.
