For a variety of reasons I don't do "what I wore today" blog posts. But given that I'm still behind from last week (3 concerts, plus a wedding, plus fighting a cold), I decided why not do a simple blog post tonight? I have some posts (almost) ready to go as I draft out a lot of things ahead of schedule, but proofreading and hyperlinking always seem to be those last details that get in the way of publishing exactly when I think I'm going to hit publish. And, I don't know about y'all but I almost have to blog non-stop in order to maintain a rhythm. The second I stop posting, alerting social media about my blog, and responding to comments/reading your blogs I'm suddenly days behind blogging and have to work back up to my routine!
But aside from doing a "simple" blog post, all day as I was wearing this I kept thinking about how much I love summer. For me, it's the easiest style season, at least on day's like today where it's generally nice out all day (minus a mostly harmless rainstorm for 20 minutes this afternoon). As I've mentioned a few times before, I'm deceptively low maintenance. I don't enjoy being made up and the quicker I can run out of the house, the better! Dresses are the easiest cheat in the world for looking fashionable and dresses and summer go together like peanut butter and jelly. For a second I was struggling with what to wear today, but then I remembered this Hell Bunny dress I got from Unique Vintage last summer on sale. (I even wore it to my birthday last year). I love this dress and in part is because it stands on it's own. Gray matching wedges and voila, I'm dressed all nice in two seconds flat! In any other season, more layers are required, and layers sometimes walk a fine line between frumpy and chic (or, even "frumpy chic" as I believe that to totally be a thing!). Plus, I always maintain that dresses/skirts are actually somewhat more comfortable than shorts or pants. Not that I'm against pants or shorts, but dresses really just are more comfortable to me!
This whole post is kind of an accident. I wanted an #ootd for Instagram and liked a few photos, so why not make them a blog set? The best part is, other than putting on some red lipstick because I look a little washed out in photos without some color on my lips, I'm not wearing any make-up. And aside from putting on sunglasses and running a brush through my hair again (you're welcome), there was no effort whatsoever into this look. Gotta love summer...easy and breezy living!
What's your go to season for effortless style and why?
