Sometimes a girl just needs to be comfortable. I went to a lovely baby shower on Sunday morning in a dress and heels, but when I got home several hours later I just wanted to put on something casual. Typically I wouldn’t bother with changing, but I needed to clean my apartment and a cocktail dress just felt silly.
I do love comfort and basic pieces, but I also have an aversion to feeling like I look plain. I can never really wear just a t-shirt and jeans without feeling sloppy (exceptions: road trips, sick days). These are just my personal neuroses and not anything that I project onto anyone else. It’s simply a weird thing that I feel in my feelers. The point is, I tend to turn to standout pieces that can instantly make any outfit look more put together or unique (see: these floral oxfords). Whether it’s a headband, statement necklace, colorful shoe, or just a special detail – I always need a little something to keep things interesting. I know that I am not the most creative or daring fashion blogger out there, but that will never be who I am. I’m just keeping it real today.
