Style Simplicity

February 20, 2015

There's something exceptionally awesome about Fridays. If your an office rat like myself, it's the day of jeans, comfy shoes, and not to mention the last work day of the week. I know I'm far from alone when I say I like to dress comfortably. Most people do, and Friday just makes that extra acceptable. No matter your style these basic wardrobe essentials make comfort achievable in the easiest way.

When going about my typical morning routine, I knew I wanted to focus today's look on simplicity and comfort. Daisy, over at Simplicity Relished  , has been doing a mess of simplifying your life posts, one focused around wardrobe simplicity. For the next 90 days she's focusing on 40 pieces with mix and match capabilities, thus simplifying her wardrobe and making outfits easier to put together. 

This morning I was inspired. Reading her posts just makes me want to purge my closet of all the things I neglect; whether I've outgrown them or they just don't go with anything. How many times do you stand at your closet full of clothes and say "I have nothing to wear!" Check out her posts and get inspired. 

I've mentioned before I'm quite the cardigan queen. When it comes to my own personal style, I consider them a compete essential. Whether you choose to layer a tee or toss one over a dress, cardigans are the perfect way to layer an outfit and take a look from day to night. This striped boyfriend cardigan works great thrown over a simple tee. It's loose fit and classic length make it a perfect casual Friday option. While the stripes add a bit of texture. 

Cardigan: Old Navy. T-Shirt: Merona. Tank: Old Navy. Jeans: Levi

These photos of Penny were taken last Thursday. Clearly I didn't expect to get engaged, which threw a curve ball at my normal Friday posting. Her milk was a little too important to her at the moment, but if you're curious, her sippy is from Target.

i'll be forever jealous of her perfect brows

Cardigan: Cherokee (Target). Jeans: Guess
Shoes: PayLess. Bow: Target.
Minnie toy: Kohls.

She too loves her cardigans. With enough fabric to be warm and layer over a simple long sleeve tee, they are a total baby essential. 

Someone turns one on Sunday! I know I am a complete broken record, but seriously where did that first year go? Expect a nice long sappy Monday post as I experience post-party depression. (Jk).

Have an excellent and safe weekend!
