I bought this denim pinafore dress back in February and despaired of ever wearing it because it was so loose. But then I thought, "Why couldn't I belt this?" And sure enough, I can.
I am always a little bit envious of people who dress this way all the time — minimal, effortless, classic. And I could see my style evolving to include more of this. But I'm not going to be going all capsule-wardrobe on you any time soon. Nope, I love wearing crazy stuff a little too much.
In an effort to make this outfit seem a little classier, I chose these nude peep-toe platform heels that are, sadly, TOTALLY FALLING APART now. I think I wore them twice before they bit the dust. There is still hope that Superglue will save them, but I'm skeptical.
Aaand once I again I kind of forgot to wear makeup. This is usually how it goes with me. Then I look at the pictures later (or get to work) and go, "Oh, right. Lipstick! That would have been good." (This is why I keep lipstick in my purse.)
But, lipstick or not, I felt pretty bad-ass in this outfit. It was just the right combination of comfort and style to put me at ease. There is something to be said for this whole effortless chic thing after all, I suppose.
