Black T-Shirt, Loafers: Thrifted.
Today I was craving simplicity. Life has been overwhelming enough on its own accord lately, so sometimes I don't want to further complicate it with my style. I don't think I've ever actually taken photos in an outfit this simple on here. No patterns, no jewelery, clean lines. I kind of really like it. I was surprised at myself yesterday when I had on a dress with a huge peter pan collar, matching keds, and a matching hair accessory and I cringed at my reflection. It was actually kind of shocking to react like that to this outfit, because it's something I would have worn in a heart beat a year ago and described as very "me." I guess I just don't want to do the twee, little girl thing anymore. Not that there's anything wrong with it all-- I still love to look at bloggers who wear this kind of stuff, but for me it doesn't fit who I am anymore. I kind of wish it did. I want to go back to that girl and where I felt more "sure" of the style I dressed. But for whatever reason of having more responsibilities, living in Europe, growing older...I've just grown out of old parts of me that I thought were essential to who I was. Strange how that can happen I guess.
With much love, Lauren.
