What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 10 – Graphic Design

Graphic Design
*So a feature that I am going to run on Wednesdays (possibly along with a daily outfit post) is called “What I Wish I Wore Wednesday.” I’ll be piecing together an outfit on Polyvore (which I have never used before blogging, but I really like it) with all Target items to show you what I wish I was wearing and just how easy it is to look cute on a budget.

This is a look I imagined I would wear had I turned out to be a graphic designer after my one encounter with graphic design.

I took a graphic design class in college through Indiana University’s School of Journalism, and it was probably one of the most fun classes I took in college. You spent the entire class learning about principles of design, elements, colors, and how to use various design programs (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, etc.). I love the creative aspect of this class coupled with my business classes, and it was a great outlet for creative expression.

Luckily, I get to design things for this blog and for my wedding (I just finished designing our invites), so I still get to utilize those principles of design and my color wheel. And let’s face it, this look involves stripes, so of course I would rock it.

What do you think of today’s look? Let me know in the comments!

  • Very nice, especially the blazer. I have about a million blazers because they make me feel instantly pulled together.

    • Sage – I am so with you with the blazer comment. They instantly add a polished touch! Plus, they are so great in the middle of winter for another layer of warmth!

  • melindaaa

    I almost bought a striped blazer like that but didn’t know how to style it – guess I needed to look at your blog first!

    • Thanks for stopping by! I always encourage the purchase of a good stripe or a great blazer, so both in one? Right up my alley! Go for it! :)
