What I Wore 09.20.17

I’m so happy to be back in the blogging world! Instead of doing super formal outfit posts, I want to share real life outfits that I’m actually wearing. I always want to keep it real with you guys, and in my opinion, this is the best way to do it! I rummaged around in my closet this past weekend and threw this outfit together just in time for dinner and drinks! You’ll definitely be seeing these pieces again remixed in future real outfit posts.

One style tip for this post is don’t be afraid to tie something around your waist! It’s a great way to add a layer and extra detail even when it’s freaking hot outside. Try a flannel, chambray button down, denim jacket, or light pullover. I recently discovered this trick + love it!

One thing I’ve been learning lately is not expecting perfection. From people, from situations, from yourself. Definitely easier said than done, I know. I’ve found that anytime I set my expectations high, I end up worn out, drained and disappointed. Nobody’s perfect. You’re not (sorry if I offend anyone) and I sure as HECK am not. Just ask anyone that knows me personally and they will tell you! Let’s give grace to ourselves and others. Step back, take a breath, and embrace the messiness and the chaos and the brokenness and the beauty this week. Let’s welcome the REAL.

Y’all are seriously the best!
