One thing I’m working on this year is just simplifying my closet and my outfits. Sometimes I feel the pressure, as a blogger, to overaccessorize and over-layer for more blog-worthy (let’s face it: Pinterest and Insta-worthy) outfits. The outfits are always something I would definitely wear, but on an everyday basis, I’m wearing much simpler and more comfortable looks.
I also think they’re just generally more realistic. While I won’t be winning the best style blog anytime soon, I’m hoping that the outfits I do share are ones that you feel like you could easily recreate with what you have in your closet already.
This is another take on my typical daily uniform. If you remember from a few months ago, I mentioned that I’ve been hunting for a camel coat. I tried a bunch this winter and couldn’t find one that I actually looked good in. They were either too big or too long or not quite the right color.
The other week I was in J. Crew (you know, just browsing) and found this camel coat IN MY SIZE. The tag said it was full-priced, but I checked online and it was actually on sale, and then an extra 50% off. It was so worth the wait.
I completely overlooked this ballerina tee, but a stylist recommended that I just try it on. (Famous last words in the fitting room.) I didn’t really need another striped shirt, but the scoop in the back sealed the deal for me.
I love the camel and black combination.
