Keep It Simple, Stupid.
This is a mantra I learned in my broadcast journalism courses and I find that it can apply to a lot of things in life. Sometimes I find myself repeating this as I stand agonizingly in front of my closet with “nothing to wear.” I know darn well that I do, in fact, have a lot of things to wear. It’s just that nothing is speaking to me.
I channeled the KISS method as I picked out the final outfit for this week’s Wear of the Week. I paired a white button-up (a staple every woman should have in her closet) with a black cardigan and boyfriend shorts. Super simple. I used accessories to express the personality of the outfit, like this amazing floral bib necklace I recently purchased at the J. Crew outlet store.
This outfit works great for Happy Hour with friends, and if you are coming straight from work, swap out the shorts for black pants (or even better, pants with a pop of color like burgundy). Paired with a sparkle clutch, this “simple” outfit starts to have a life of it’s own.
