Denim has quickly become one of my favorite go-tos, which is funny, considering I’ve never been huge on jeans. But everything else—shirts, dresses, and jackets—are the absolute best. But especially a dress; somehow it always feels crisp and put together. The most appealing thing, though, is that a frock like this can be layered when it’s chilly, or when it’s summer, you can ditch the layers and opt for sandals and a big ol’ sunhat.
My new obsession: oversized blazers. Sometimes a gal just needs something structured and simple to bring an outfit together. Blazers are a lazy girl’s dream (not that I’m always lazy, but on weekends, sure, sometimes). After you throw on a pair of jeans, a top, and a blazer, you’re pretty much good to go. No need to second guess yourself, because most likely, the blazer will make you look put together. Oh, and a good ol’ polka dot blouse. Can always count on those.
For whatever reason, this dressy silk top inspired an outfit that typically, isn’t so much my thing; a sporty ensemble. You would think that the black and hot pink color would do the opposite, and make me want to dress up. But these days I’ve been gravitating towards much more easy, laid back looks. Maybe it’s because I’ve been so busy and I’m getting a little lazy (ahem). The thing is though, I’m actually really excited to explore this new [for me] style. Whether it’s just one of my many phases, or is here to stay for the long run, this is what personal style is all about! If it weren’t for this pretty top, I may have never stepped out of my comfort zone. And just knowing that I can always go back and re-style this blouse to be more feminine, makes it all feel okay.
