PERSONAL UNIFORM: HOLEY TEE AND PRINTED PANT

Aaaaawwwweeee  shucks! The personal uniform is back. Not to kill the surprise, but I've ONLY been wearing holey tees and printed pants these days. Behold, exhibit A...

Full look:

IF for some reason, you've been resisting the holey tee, it might be time to give in and sort out a way to make it chic. It doesn't have to be "rock N roll" if you don't want it to be. IF you've been wearing them- I'm officially considering these a staple, NOT a trend.

Bring the print! These pants are actually jeans... comfort? Yes. Style? Sure. 

How easy would it have been to wear a black shoe and be done with this look? The easy road can be so uninspired though, don't you think? Enter pony hair, leopard print espadrilles loafers.

Worn as slides, NAH MEAN?!

There's nothing like a personal uniform to simplify things - really and truly. If you knew you had a simple combo to put together daily and were smart about choosing well-made, outstanding pieces within that plan... DRESSING MADE EASY. What say you? Leave a comment, why dontcha?

PHILOSOPHY ON PERSONAL STYLE

Obvious fact: People perceive things about you, (whether you like it or not) based on how you present yourself. This is NOT about whether people should judge you on your taste. We all know judging ain't nice.

I'm talking about the basics - what you put on your back "says" something about you. For better or worse. 

My philosophy: when it comes to personal style, the most important thing is to have a perspective and then ask yourself if the clothes you're wearing communicate it or not.

IF you're a person who enjoys travel and learning about new cultures, how will I know that about you? You get the point.  

It's not about getting crazy or being too literal - it's just about perspective and taking the opportunity when you get dressed, to honor it. 

Today, I was "adventurous, bold, comfortable in her own skin girl"

Pattern play in full effect.

3 prints aren't enough? Add some leopard! Side note: slip-ons worn as slides, cause I'm lazy like that.
