Simple and blue...

Wednesday, March 23, 2016

Since I was a child, I've been a notorious overdresser/crazy dresser.  I was the 5-year old holding on to the shopping cart, dressed in a swirling teal Native American dress handed down by my aunt, giant yellow plastic dress up glasses, and my mum's old slippers.  I was the kid zipping up and down the street on my bike with an old scarf tied around my head and a number of blankets and other scarves tied around me in something that most closely resembles a toga.  In stores, I gravitated to the cheapest looking sparkly garments and even now when I shop, it is the flowiest, brightest, most intricately patterned or embroidered garments that catch my eye. 

And this is why the facts that 1) I put this particular outfit together and 2) That I seriously loved this outfit really come as a shock.  If this isn't a the-week-is-only-halfway-over-and-gosh-I'm-ready-for-the-weekend-Wednesday (I am so happy I can wear jeans to work this week) outfit, than I don't know what is!  It is simple.  It is blue.  It is comfy.  It totally worked.  And I may need to start dressing like this a bit more often...

    1. I think this is a bit deceiving! It was absolutely freezing, but the sun definitely helped!

  2. You know what they say... less is more. I personally love the outfit, but then I'm totally into simplicity. xoxoxo


  3. I love your style. I am also a simple person, and I believe it is the best way to be.
