When I first started my blog a few years ago I felt like I really needed to get dressed up and wear something super unique and interesting so that it’d seem worthy of a blog post, and now looking back some of my outfits were kind of bizarre and so not me. For example this post from five years ago (!) – while it’s not an insane outfit, I don’t think I went around cinching my cardigans in neon belts and teetering to happy hour in silver scrappy stilettos in my normal everyday life so I’m not sure why I wore it for that post. My favorite outfit posts to look back on are things like this pretty floral dress that I still wear a ton, or this jeans and an un-basic top look paired with the same shoes I’m wearing in today’s post. I also really like this post and am wearing that Joie dress as I type this.
This is all to say that while I love scrolling through Instagram and seeing bloggers and ‘it girls’ wearing thigh high boots or dresses with crazy cutouts on them, it’s just not me and I have a feeling if you’re reading my blog that it’s just not you, either. So I’m going to just share things that I’m actually wearing in my real life and I hope that you’ll be able to get a little outfit inspiration even if it’s not the most avant garden or out-there style. I had a meeting to go to after we took these pictures and you better believe I kicked my heels off right after that ; )
