You Must Be Joking.

Before you even scroll down and see my outfit, let me go ahead and tell y'all...yes, I am serious. And so comfy.

 I had every intention to post a different outfit today, one not composed of running shorts and a sleeveless tee. But as I sat down to write this, it* occurred to me.

 Revelation #1: *insert scholarly voice* not everyone dresses up every day, and some days just call for exactly what I was wearing.

And then, revelation #2: Have you ever seen a fashion post dedicated to styling bum clothing? Exactly.

I kept the look fun with baggy, vintage looking tees (usually worn over a visible bandeau) and bright shoes (Nikes are my favs!). Casual jewelry like friendship bracelets and a watch are a must for the wrist, and I love adding a small pendant necklace.

So here you go, fashion blogging world. Go ahead, laugh at me. You will thank me later;)

sleeveless tee- vintage
shorts- Nike
shoes- Nike
bandeau- Francesca's (worn underneath baggy tee)
necklace- unknown
wrist jewelry- Michael Kors / Pandora / souvenir

Have y'all adjusted to the 'fashion demands' of the school/work year?-(aka dressing cute 5 days of the week (five whole days!).

    1. Hahah, thank you! And it does feel like that sometimes,doesn't it? Hah, I've never thought of it like that, but it is a legitimate observation!;)

  6. I love your post! I remember having a specific conversation with my best friend in high-school about how it was a big discovery that we could dress 'accidentally cute' which to us meant wearing bum clothing that didn't actually make you look homeless or terrible. Before our realization we would actually wear our worst most ill fitting stuff when we were have bum clothing days. But then we realized you could wear cute running shorts and a fun colorful tank, be a comfy bum but still look reasonably cute. (But we drew the line at those girls who put on a full face of make up and spent an hour on their hair - that defeated the whole purpose of easy bum-day dressing!)

    1. Thanks, girlie!
      Hahah, I love the "accidentally cute" term. I'll have to add that one to my arsenal of words;)
      Oh, I totally know those girls you are talking about! I agree- why have a bum day if you are going to spend your morning fixing yourself up? Aah, well.. guess we'll never know:)
