Oddly enough, I used to style myself in a much more “ornate” way than I do now.  As I’ve gotten older, I find that I tend to gravitate more and more towards simplicity.  In my opinion, this Sartorialist-shot woman’s outfit is literally perfection.  It’s not all the little details of her look that make the impact, but rather how she combined the few pieces that make up this look together.

I’m sorry I’ve been such a bad blogger this week.  If any of you follow me on Twitter, you might have heard me already ranting and complaining about this past week and a half.  Aside from dealing with some very unfortunate family-related news, I feel like I’ve been experiencing some huge upheavals in all areas of my life.  I’ve either received really bad news or really good news, and as a result, I feel like I’m on a constant, nausea-inducing rollercoaster ride.  I’m going to keep riding it out though and hope that everything figures itself out soon enough – it’s all I can really do at this point!  Hope you’re all having a great weekend 🙂

    I think your style has gone on the opposite trajectory from mine… American Eagle jeans and Gap t-shirts were high fashion in Winnipeg when I was growing up, and the fact that I wore sweaters instead made me look overdressed most of the time, but I feel like I've been searching for glamour since I was a teenager and I'm only starting to find it 🙂 That said, this outfit is pretty much perfection. I just wouldn't likely try it out myself.

    Hope things calm down for you soon! And I can't wait to hear what the really good news is 🙂 And I have some for you, too- you won my giveaway!

    awe girl, i'm not on twitter but sure hope all will be okay! i'm thinking of you and wishing you peaceful moments amongst what seems to be a rather challenging time. it's interesting that you chose to post about the way your looks have changed over the years, when you think about it there is also a link to refining the upheavals of life too.

    life's combo has thrown you an ornate bone but i know you will polish, calibrate and fine-tune it to something much better in the long run. xoox ♥

    Aww sorry that things have been so up and down for you, I hope they settle soon. It seems that things always happen all together which can be challenging and stressful, but they always have a way of working out how they're supposed to. Thinking of you! xx

    p.s yes, this outfit is perfect! So chic and easy
