The temps around Chicago have been unreal lately. And I’m not complaining. It was in the 70s the past two weekends and during the week and it’s been awesome. Lots of time outside, open windows, stroller runs and half marathon training around here. And this past weekend, we snapped back to the 50s and rain showers. Wa waaa.
But back to the outfit. It’s as simple as it gets, really. I grabbed several of my tried-and-true simple, classic pieces and got an outfit out of it, perfect for spring. And since I’ve pared down my closet, it didn’t take long to put together.
Man, it is great to actually see what I have. It’s a work in progress still, but I’m making strides.
And on days when I am lacking creativity in what to wear, I turn to my Pinterest boards where I pinned outfits similar to pieces I already have (not want to buy) and use that to help me find options in what I have. This outfit was one of them, inspired by Kate.
Next time, I might opt to do a v-neck tee or try a wedge heel for some height or even do a front tuck to add some balance/more of a waistline, but either way this outfit feels casual, basic and great for running errands or hanging out at home.
Do you remix your closet with Pinterest? Anyone else loving the lace up gladiator sandal look?
