It felt like a week of jeans and sneakers.

I’m trying out Gekks shoe inserts in an effort to keep these slip-ons from becoming super stinky. They were a bitch to “install,” but so far they are staying put pretty well, and seem to be effective at preventing odor. Hoping they make me reach for these sneakers more, because I do love how effortless a slip-on is. Reaching for this sweater is always so comforting, because I feel like it’s so easy to wear. It makes me feel good physically, and I know I won’t look like a slob.

All-black used to be a go-to look for me, and this short sleeved sweatshirt used to be one of my most worn items. Lately, I’ve really drifted away from it. I’m just not in love with this top anymore. Something about the neckline doesn’t feel “me,” and it might be time to say goodbye, because I felt that I was forcing myself to wear it simply because I hadn’t in a while. It’s funny how comfort zones can totally shift around us. I was happy to force myself to wear these ponte pants that never get enough attention, though, because they are so comfortable. I cuffed them under to show a little more ankle and I feel very Audrey Hepburn with the loafer pairing. I wonder if I should try this combo with a big white button-up.

I figured overcast was a good enough excuse to wear this rain jacket, because I just find it to be a really flattering length and I wanted to mix it up. It does work well as a wind-breaker, and it was also a little windy this day. I’m trying visible socks with jeans here, and I can’t tell exactly how goofy it looks. I wonder if they’d work better if they were a more contrasting color to my white sneakers.

I’ve got a little claw hand action for you here, lol. This chambray shirt is not in my official winter capsule, but it was picture day at work, and it was all I wanted to reach for. There’s something so classic about the shape and drape of it, and I love the light blue. When I got to work, I saw at least five other people wearing this same outfit! Blue shirts must universally work.

This was a minimal energy outfit that I just kind of haphazardly grabbed on my way out the door, and I love its simplicity. In fact, it’s been a week of simple outfits. I’m still getting used to styling my new haircut, but I like how it makes ponies a little more interesting, so I’m embracing easy with open arms right now.
