HI! Like every other blogger, in the past year or so, I've collected a few basic knit dresses from Old Navy (^this one^, the gray fit & flare, the swing.) I think the appeal behind these dresses is: they're effortless, comfortable, and limitless in terms of styling. But is it weird that I find them SUCH a blank canvas that I get overwhelmed, and have trouble styling them? This is the paradox of choice rearing its' ugly head again, I suppose.
I want to train myself to reach for one of these when I'm running late (every single morning) and am having trouble getting dressed (pretty much every day.) I don't think there's a wrong way to wear them. What's that quote, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication? What's your go-to ensemb for a simple knit dress?
In other news- I need to stop buying blazers because I just don't like them. I don't find them comfortable or especially flattering on me. I guess I just haven't found that "unicorn blazer" that completes me. The struggle is alive and well.
Oh, and if you're wondering about this hairstyle- it isn't. I had planned to do something, ANYTHING to it this morning, but a few extra minutes of sleep won out instead. They usually do!
Look who's hanging out with me this week! Isn't she cute?
here's her whole ensemb that she wanted to share -->
| scarf: Stitch Fix | blouse: Old Navy (gifted by me! Same as this one.) | jeans: Lucky | flats: Tieks (she swears by these!) | bracelets: gift |
Galina flew in last night, and was kind enough to snap some photos for me today after lunch! Good thing too, because although I've been wearing clothes (nothing too remarkable, mind you), I've had trouble finding that combo of daylight + a willing photographer lately.
I'm a lucky girl to have my big sis come hang with me just because. We've got some plans for the week that include makeovers with Kelley, hiking at Percy Warner, some line dancing, and of course, so many Nashville eats (possibly including soup at Huntee's new place?)
What's everybody up to this week? What's everybody wearing this week??
