I somewhat mentioned my “Tom boy days” in the post prior and I feel like lately I’ve been including elements from those times when I spent every day wearing pony tails, simple tees and oddly cut denim. I think we all go through that “awkward phase” where we later look back and question our decisions — especially when it comes to fashion. But I also think it’s important to appreciate those times because at the end of the day…it’s still a part of you. Anyhow, it’s a fun reminder of when I rode bikes with the boys around my block, climbed trees and pulled pranks on our neighbors. I never would have worn a dress then..which, makes me laugh now.
Lately, I’ve been absolutely in love with lightwash denim, well…all denim. I’ve been styling the classic American piece in such a simple and laid back way; Stripes, White T-shirts, and more Denim. Maybe this is somewhat James Dean-ish but I can’t help but love the minimalistic aspect. It’s very clean and under done and in a way..honest. I feel like it screams America in the most glorious way! Plus, it takes me back to my ol’ tomboy days when I grew up with the boys, climbed trees and pulled pranks.
Anyhow, I’ve been throwing on similar outfits all week to run errands and grab coffee, quite different than my younger self. Haha. I’ll soon be posting a more feminine version.
I’m always caught being “over dressed” for every occassion, but I don’t mind at all. I will always love wearing doll-like dresses and overly embellished heels to dinners, parties and any event ever. There never needs to be a “special” occassion…because every evening is special, so wear the dress and feel good about yourself!
