I feel like fashion bloggers typically blog about their outfits for one of two reasons-either they live some fabulous life in a big city with an awesome job that requires them to look their best every day so therefore they want to document the greatness, or they blog because they maybe don't have a lot of 'fashion' in their everyday lives and need some sort of creative outlet (me).
I don't get out much. Not only am I a stay-at-home mom to two children, I also live in the country. So there isn't a lot of call for me to get dressed up very often. So for me, simply running errands is an excuse to dig into my closet and put an outfit together.
The only problem is that you do have to find that balance of not looking like you are trying too hard. My biggest issue of this is when I am just running to the store or something with my husband (sorry babe). I have to base what I am going to wear on what he has on, because if he is wearing a t-shirt and jeans and I have on a dress and heels, I am just going to look crazy.
He goes to the closet...will he select a polo? A button-down? Ah, no...it's apparently a t-shirt day. (We were just headed to an outdoor outfitters store.) In his defense, he has to dress in a shirt and tie every day so I can't blame him for wanting to dress down on the weekends, and he's actually not into shorts so the most casual he gets is a nice pair of jeans and a solid colored tee...but still that means I have to go pretty casual.
I try to get away with as much of a fashionable spin as I can, so below is my answer to his jeans and tee. A casual outfit with shorts and a plain top, with some gold jewelry and flat sandals.
