Sometimes Simple

Although still in heels, I count this as casual for me. (Not like sitting on the couch watching Judge Judy casual — that kind of casual is my specialty. Sweat pants: made for working out and used for the complete opposite.) Lately I’ve just been drawn to jeans and a tee, so I compromised: cute jeans, striped tee (not just a t-shirt) and heels. It makes comfortable seem a bit more put together. Sometimes you just don’t need that many elements to put together an outfit. Sometimes simple is good enough. 

Also, I heard a rumor that flare jeans are coming back in. A little birdy called pinterest told me this. I for one am excited, although I will never abandon my skinnies. We’ve got too much history together.

  7. Flare jeans coming back? I love it! Skinnies work best with boots on me. I'm a little too short and curvy to wear with flats.

    They do! They are just a little bit roomy, but in the best way possible. I don't like jeans to be super snug. I'd say they fit like Gap jeans.

    I'd feel SO boring to wear this outfit, but you make something so simple look so stylish and chic. I'm kicking myself for tossing most of my flared jeans though.

    You look fantastic! Casual attire is my fave! I'm not very glad that flare jeans are over. I guess that's a trend I won't follow… I'm too small for that! Skinny jeans will always be my go to jeans!

    I agree! Simple is great. Especially in this outfit of yours:) And I read about flare jeans coming back in as well! I would be fine with this…except for the fact that I own about 12 pairs of skinnies!! Hopefully we can keep wearing those too:) Have a great weekend.
