Ever keep something in your closet because you live it, and you just KNOW you’ll find something to wear with it? Yeah, me too. Too often.
BUT today I’m finally wearing one of those “I just can’t get rid of it, because I love it and I’ll make it work” shirts. I picked this denim shirt up from Topman on one of my trips last year, and I’ve only worn it once since I bought it. It’s one of those shirts that I fell in love but could never figure out how to work it into my wardrobe. Today I made myself put it on though because honestly I’m tired of wearing tank tops (never thought I’d say that). Also because I can’t look at my under arm fat in posts any longer, or I may cry myself to sleep at night. Sometimes when I can’t figure out what to wear with something I start with the one piece that I want to wear and build the outfit from there. The top has a lot going on, and I kept the bottom simple with a pair of drop crotch linen pants, which are perfect for nights where you’re feeling some pants but it’s too hot for jeans. Once I was dressed I stood in front of my closet and stared longingly at the rows of shoes in my floor, and then it dawned on me. My new TOMS Floral Brogues were the perfect match for this shirt. Don’t you just love those light bulb moments cause I know I do.
