This past weekend the sun was shining and we were all in good moods so we headed downtown for some fun. The kids and my husband ice skated at the outdoor rink while I worked across the street in a fun and quirky coffee shop that I have never been to before. It was a perfect Saturday (yes, my perfect Saturday includes my husband entertaining the kids, not me - what can I say).
Then we went scoping out fun places to take pictures. We found this old bummed out and graffitied bus stop and called it good. I pretty much sure it is "out of service" as it hadn't been plowed, and by 'bummed out' I mean that I'm pretty sure it's being repurposed by the local homeless population. My husband liked that it had "free tibet" scrawled on the side. It was quirky like that.
Any way... I was going to talk about this outfit. Shall we? It's simple and I've decided, simple is pretty much my thing lately. As a blogger and a clothes owner I often look inside my closet and have a deep longing for my clothes to pair themselves in brilliant and mind bending combos. Like this WAS just a pink shirt, but when I wear it with x, y and z is the MOST AMAZING PINK SHIRT EVERRRRRRR! I expect that out of each and every piece in my closet - for them all to be stunning and amazing and to make my life complete.
But duh, clothes are just clothes and they will not complete me, they will just make me less naked. Plus, look at this outfit. It's nothing too special, but it works and I feel comfortable and fabulous in it. So there.
I needed the reminder that this outfit gave me that clothes don't have to be complex, new or mind-bendingly cool to make you (specifically, me) feel fabulous. Look at this, I am learning lessons on my own blog.
