The honest truth, is that sometimes I just don’t feel like over thinking an outfit, dressing up and fussing with lots of accessories. I suppose that is why you follow Practically Spoiled, so I apologize if this post is lackluster. But I figure why not be honest? Why not bear it all, on the internet, in front of strangers, friends and family?
Now that I’ve managed your expectations, onto the outfit of the day. I call this one “Casual Friday.” The weather is pretty gross and I’m tired from staying up late last night baking mini vegan donuts (more on that in my next post) so I wanted to dress comfortably. The outfit began with the jeggings, followed by a chunky cowl neck sweater. The trick I use to not look like a total shlub is fitted bottoms with loose top or loose bottoms with fitted top. When you go loose on both, that’s when things start to look sloppy. Once I had only my blue and and gray, I knew I needed a pop of color. My red and navy houndstooth scarf and my red bag were just the right amount of color. For comfort, I threw on my Grandma Heels. (Definition – Grandma Heels: A Practically Spoiled term for a comfortable low heel that gives the slight illusion of an extended leg, in turn making you look slimmer.) Finally, my beige swing coat was perfect for today’s weird temperature spread (high 59, low 34.)
So there you have it; My casual outfit. Because sometimes, even fashion bloggers need a day off.
