So, I turned to Pinterest to give me some inspiration, and ultimately chose to recreate one of the very first outfits I ever pinned. Sometimes simple is best, especially when you are feeling out of sorts.
|Dress- Old Navy (similar here and here)|
Belt- New York & Co. (similar here and here)
Boots- Old Navy (Similar wide-calf options here, here, here, and here)
These pieces are all more than a year old, and I consider them all to be "classics" for any wardrobe- black dress, brown boots, and brown belt- nice and easy. I know some women still consider mixing black and brown together to be one of the ultimate fashion faux pas, but I think this look is just perfect and that's important on days like today.
When I feel like nothing fits, or I have nothing to wear, or everything is boring and dull, I struggle with getting discouraged and comparing myself to everyone else. It's not a healthy way to feel, so I am glad it doesn't happen very often!
It seems silly and shallow, but sometimes it is nice to know that you have an elegant outfit that makes you feel good on days when you feel like everything is going wrong. For me, this is that outfit. It's probably that simple elegance that appealed to me over a year and a half ago when I pinned it, and continues to appeal to me today.
P.S. Sorry I sounded like a downer today, gals! Here's a sneak peek at my Gwynnie Bee selection for later this week. How can I not smile when wearing this dress??
