It’s not very often that you see me wearing basic outfits around here and it’s pretty simple why not – I’m allergic to boring clothes.
You’re probably wondering to yourself why for my first official outfit post after my blog vacation, why I’d show you some boring beige dress. (Especially after teasing you my new brightly hued ‘do!)
I thrifted this dress a few months ago because it’s summer and I was lured in with it’s effortless, sleeveless design. It also reminded me of a dress I wore a couple years ago to a wedding. You’ll never guess what inspired this outfit – yep, that outfit I wore to the wedding.
But since I needed a look for everyday errands and not to watch my friends get hitched, I changed up a few key details.
The first change is that I added a casual vibe by wearing my favorite black flats. They’re much more practical than high heels and still allow me to run from creepy bugs in my backyard that attack me during photoshoots.
The other casual element I added was wearing this vintage printed scarf up in my tousled curly hair.
If I can wear boring clothes, so can you!
All it takes is a little imagination, an afternoon on Pinterest, and a vision for how to add your own style to a garment. Seeing as my dress is a neutral, I can envision it styled in the future with second favorite neutral – leopard print!
