simple as it gets
When I said in my last post that I’d been feeling lazy/overwhelmed and dressing more casual lately, I really wasn’t kidding.
This is about as basic as it gets: brown floral waffle shirt (with black Mossimo tank underneath): Belle du Jour, jeans: Old Navy, sneakers: Converse Chuck Taylors.
Oh, I love my Chucks. If you can’t entirely tell, they are brown and pink (a color combo that I love), and the pink polka dots swirl in a heart pattern. Plus the trim is pink! I loved these so much but put off buying them for a long time. By the time I wanted them, I couldn’t find them anywhere in my size! But I did find a half size smaller on eBay. So I jumped on them. They start to rub one foot after a while, but they’re canvas, so they stretch more with each wear. I also have a navy pair in my actual size, but they’re just not as fun!
Earrings: New York & Company, and I layered 2 necklaces – the leaf from H&M, and my Illinois state quarter pendant by Jack Landstra. I’ve been doing this layering of necklaces semi-frequently because I just love the look. I also think a little more attention on my upper half helps to draw the eye upward and balance out my lower half, so that’s a plus.
Crap, man, I better get myself together for my birthday party tomorrow. If I’m gonna be casual, it’s gotta be more interesting than this!
