Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Letting an app dress me | Week 1

Letting an app dress me | Week 1

Quick recap of this style game/challenge — I am letting an app, Smart Closet, generate outfits for me to wear to work everyday. Want details? Read my post describing the game. Now let's see how the first week went.

Day 1: Monday

Here's what the app generated.

Those shoes though? SO much love.

Those shoes though? SO much love.

Looks interesting to me. I groaned a bit when I saw the shoes. There is barely any heel there but I don't usually wear 'fancy' shoes like that to work. Here's how the outfit looked on me.

Top: AE outfitters, Pants: BetaBrand Yoga cropped pant, Shoes: Steve Madden, Faux leather jacket: ASOS

Comfort level
9/10 (only coz even the tiny heel is less comfy than flats)

Would I have picked this out myself?
I don't think so. I would have never picked those shoes for work. Secondly, I would not have paired them with a casual outfit like the rest of the pieces. Interestingly, the shoes elevated the outfit from totally casual to somewhat interesting and made it look like I spent some time thinking about what to wear.

Would I wear it again?
Yes! I would definitely wear this again. It was super comfy but looks curated.

Day 2: Tuesday

Eeks, I don't know about this yellow pants green jacket business. What's your first thought when you look at this?

You guys, I am so bad at cutting out the photos of these outfits. Please to be ignoring that. On to this outfit. I actually liked it when I put it on. These yellow pants are just so fun for spring.

Top: Old Navy Tshirt, Pants: Old Navy, Shoes: Minnetonka El Paso, Jacket: AE outfitters

Comfort level
10/10

Would I have picked this out myself?
No, well I don't really wear these yellow pants because I never know what to wear them with. 

Would I wear it again?
Yes! Am I crazy or do these pants almost work like a neutral?? I love this look and combo.

Day 3: W

Here's what Smart Closet generated for Wednesday.

Initial reaction? Whatthewhat!! I was not a big fan at first, especially that stripes and plaid combo BUT I gotta say I kinda love it. I know it's already kinda a lot, but I couldn't resist adding this necklace on there. What do you think?

Top: Kurta from India, Jeans: AE Outfitters, Shoes: Massimo, Blazer: JCrew, Necklace: Krafted with Happiness

Comfort level
8/10 Eh, I am not a big blazer fan. And also, it just felt weird wearing a chunky necklace all day.

Would I have picked this out myself?
Nope nope nope. I would never pair that kurta (top) with that blazer. But I kinda love them together.  

Would I wear it again?
Yes! I love it. This app is really nailing it so far, isn't it?

Day 4: Thursday

Ok, Smart Closet! What do you have for me today?

I loved this instantly. And I think it looks bomb diggity on me :D

Chambray shirt: Gap, Jeans: AE Outfitters, Shoes: Aldo, Trenchcoat: Badgley Mischka

Comfort level
10/10

Would I have picked this out myself?
Yes! This is my kinda outfit. I would have totally done this myself. 

Would I wear it again?
Yes! The trenchcoat is so yummy cozy when it gets cold at work. And I love wearing almost neutrals with that pink. Also, that blush/dusty rose is super trendy right now, isn't it?

Day 5: Friday

And here's my Friday outfit generated by Smart Closet. It left out a layer on top for some reason, so I added a leather jacket coz I get cold at work.

I liked it when I first saw it. But oh boy did I hate it on me! I HATE those shoes with this outfit. I hated it when I put them on, but I couldn't really change them as per the rules. Ugh, so gross. What are your thoughts?

See? Ugh! I can't believe I lasted all day with that shoe.

Top: Kurta from India, Pants: BetaBrand Yoga cropped pant, Shoes: I am not sure, Faux leather jacket: ASOS

Comfort level
9.5/10 (those heels ARE pretty comfy)

Would I have picked this out myself?
Well, the top with the pants and the jacket? Sure. Those shoes with all of it, no?

Would I wear it again?
No I would not wear those shoes with this outfit ever again (have I said that enough times yet?). 

Overall thoughts

I really enjoyed this challenge. I definitely wore some stuff that I wouldn't have put together myself. However, it didn't really give me any crazy 'what were you thinking' options because my collection of bottoms is pretty basic. Everything kinda goes with everything. That's a good thing, right?

My favorite part of the challenge was getting to wear different kind of shoes to work. I usually just wear either my gold Toms or my black Toms, so some variety there was good. I am going to take a break from this, maybe add some crazier pieces in there, and try the challenge again. Thanks for reading!
