classic & plain style

My husband is very attentive and will blurt out random facts at his discretion. As I was heading to Target one day he asked if I owned clothes that weren’t denim, white, black, gray, striped or plaid.

I hadn’t really ever noticed that I am drawn to said clothing descriptors but I like what I like and while it is very plain in the eyes of some I just like my look to be classic and simple in shape and color.

Ventured out to brunch with my Fab Five blog buddies and got Lashawn to snag a few photos of my outfit of the day in all of its plain glory. Can I mention how much I am loving boyfriend jeans right now. These are in heavy rotation, and I plan to snag a few more pair to distress using this tutorial.

Flats are my shoe of choice these days and most likely will be until I depart this Earth. Heels and I see each other very rarely these days. I remember a day when I would not be seen in flats. Didn’t own a pair or tennis shoes.

In the past I’ve worn accessories sparingly but now I’m dialing it up on the bling factor. Loving on my costume jewelry.

  1. I love that coat! And my style is similar. White/black/navy. I have SO much navy. It doesn’t help that I work at a university, and our primary color is navy (well, it’s kind of perfect for me.) I don’t do a ton of patterns, and if I find a shirt I like, I’ll purchase it in all of the colors if I can afford it.

  2. This look is so cute and casual and very grown up. I wear black every day. If I don’t have on black it’s because I need to do the laundry. I’m super salty for you on the sale of that bag!!! Dang – have you called to get a credit for the difference? Sometimes they’ll do that for you if it was a recent purchase.

  3. Now how did you manage to find boyfriend jeans at the thrift?
    I love your style. I’m more of a mixed print type of girl but classic is always in style. Flats has been my best friend as of late too. I save heels for date night .

  4. I want to point out my gratitude for your kindness for those people that really want assistance with this particular situation. Your very own commitment to passing the message around was extremely insightful and has continually permitted workers just like me to get to their endeavors. Your new warm and helpful hints and tips can mean a whole lot a person like me and even further to my office workers. With thanks; from all of us.
