Keep it Simple

Keep it simple is a motto I like to live by. Sometimes I think we complicate things and make them more difficult than they need to be. And I think the same goes for our outfits too. Sometimes simple is good, and less is more. This outfit originally consisted of a white tank and jean shorts (I know, how basic can you get) then I layered a vintage floral button down on top. And by vintage, I mean I wore this button down in high school -- yes high school! So it's over 10 years old, hence the "vintage" label : )
Outfit Details:
Floral Button down: American Eagle (soooo old it's practically vintage) // White Tank: Old Navy Jean Shorts: F21 // Watch & Bracelet: Michael Kors // 
Necklace: Tiffany & Co. // Flip Flops: Tory Burch
Is anyone else proud they still wear pieces from high school or from a long time ago? ; )

  5. I am totally proud to wear pieces from long ago. It means I'm taking good care of my clothes and they're lasting a long time. It's great to know I'm not spending money on clothes only to never wear them again once the season is over.

  6. Yep, I have 2 skirts that I got at Express back in I think 7th or 8th grade. I still wear them all the time and think it is so funny that they are so old!

  7. Oh I still wear stuff from high school every now and then, although it's mostly out of pride that they still fit, not because whiskering is still in style ;)

  13. I totally agree that less is more quite often. The floral print on that button down, by the way, is lovely!

  26. I love that you keep things from High School! I definitely have a hard time letting go of things (clothes mainly) because you just never know when the style will come back around! I still have SO much stuff from HS at my parents house that I just couldn't bear to part with it. I actually just cut up an old pair of Abercrombie jeans into shorts (They were a little tight) but I can maybe wear them with a flowy shirt! Have fun in Florida :)
