Casual Wednesdays


Hello there! So, today I really just needed to be comfortable. I had a crummy class, it was rainy out, and I was went straight from class to dinner with a friend (which was lovely!). Generally, I feel more comfortable in a skirt than I do in pants, but today I just wanted to be casual and cozy, and these corduroy pants were calling my name. I almost didn't photograph this outfit because, well, it's too ordinary I suppose. Then, I realized I was being ridiculous. I thought Kallie's post, where she talks about days where she just doesn't want to dress up and whether or not she wants to photograph those outfits, and remembered that this blog is, in fact, for myself and to document what I wear on a daily basis. Sure, I didn't wear platforms or a peter pan collar or whatever, but it's silly to measure what I wear in terms of whether or not it is "blog-worthy." All my outfits are worthy of posting, because I wear them, and a daily style blog is about posting what you put together, simple or crazy. Anyway, I'm rambling, just got home, and have a ton of work I should do (though I'll probably just give up and settle down to criminal minds and frozen yogurt) so I think that's my cue to end this post!

Top: Urban Outfitters
Cords: Espirit
Trench: H&M
Shoes: Mom's




Until Tomorrow,
Nicole

  1. Stop reading my mind jeeeze. I was just pondering about how I always think that I have to be wearing something extra special for a blog post. However, some of my favorite outfits are really quite simple! I think I will do a post of a more ordinary outfit soon. Sometimes it's the cozy ones that are really the best.I think your top is super cute and very pretty coat!

  2. I like this outfit and I love that you posted because this is more like something I'd wear on a daily basis. You don't have to dress up because I'm sure I'm not the only girl out there that likes dressing down and being comfortable for sitting through classes. I really want to get some black pants. They're at least a little more dressy than jeans!

  12. Adorable little sweater. I love this outfit.

    I think it's easy to forget the point of a personal style blog in many ways. I've only just recently started posting outfits and before I bit that bullet there were a few months of agonising over it and rethinking it, worrying about what readers might think and if I might be judged in certain ways or whatever. Then I had to give myself a mental bitch slap and remind myself, firmly, that if I'm not maintaining the blog for ME first and foremost then there really is no point. May as well post outfits and sod the rest.

    :)
