You know what I can’t stop wearing right now? This whole tee-and-long-cardigan uniform. Not only is it cute, but it’s functional. Looking at you, weird spring weather.
I’d wear this for a day of working and errands, but I could also change into clogs or chunky heels and be ready for a dinner out in the evening. If it were a chillier day, I could swap the flip flops for ankle booties and be all set.
I’ve worn several versions of this uniform, but this one might be the most comfortable yet:
Old, worn in tee? Check.
The most comfortable jeans I own? Check.
And my beloved flip flops? Check.
I’ve loved + worn flip flops since, oh, I don’t know my 12th birthday when I finally ditched my white Keds? Then I latched on to flip flops and never let go.
But once I started blogging, flip flops felt too plain for a style blog, and I never included them in a capsule.
Let me rephrase that: I thought other people would think they were too plain for a style blog, so I never wore them.
Ever do that? Maybe in certain environments or around certain groups?
But, time is helping me get more confident in this blogging space, and with my style.
So … I like flip flops. And you’re going to see them around here a lot. Because the plain ol’ flip flop is actually a key part of my style precisely because they are plain. Ironic, huh? (Someone cue Alanis Morissette, please. Oh wait, I already did in my 90’s playlist that you can follow on Spotify.)
Now, this kind of pep talk is usually reserved for those times you want to wear outlandish clothes, but it applies to plain clothes just the same.
Lesson learned: If you love something, wear it. Own it. Practice not worrying about what other people think.
So tell me, have you ever experienced something similar? Is there something in your closet that you love, but shy away from wearing because of what others might think? What do you do to own it anyway?
