Hey Guys & Dolls!
It is no secret I love colorful, whimsical, playful, loud and what some might consider (gasp!) tacky clothes, jewelry, hair and makeup. It’s my signature. In my mind, I’d like to think that I know what chic and understated is, I just choose to go the other route with what I consider to be more expressive choices. The thing is, lately I’ve been liking the well balanced route. Of course I still love unexpected mash-ups, but I think a simple, matching look like this is just as nice, and deserves a little air time (blog time?).
This is look is also great because so much of it is inexpensive! There are a few pricier items, like my boots, jeans and sunglasses, but those are staples and can be worn with so many different things, so those are worth investing in. But the elements that make this pop- the scarf, the shirt, bag, none of these things are over $25. The bag was an absolute steal- it’s a dupe for the Marc by Marc Jacobs Peppy Nylon Natasha. I’ve wanted one of those bags for a while but couldn’t bring myself to pay so much for a nylon bag. The material of this Old Navy bad isn’t as refined, and it doesn’t have a designer label, but who cares? It was $22.50 and it looks and functions amazing. I also see this an auditioning this type of bag and I *might* upgrade to the real deal in the future.
On another note, I’d like to start calling my Outfit of the Day’s “Wear & Share”. I think it sounds cuter, and OOTD always looks weird and “Outfit of the Day” seems kind of long. Wear & Share is simple, and it rhymes.
Have a heathy and happy day, and just to be yourself!
