simple style sunday: mimosas & musing

We think that putting together a relaxed, yet chic, outfit for running errands ( and, ok, brunching with friends, too) can be somewhat challenging. We want to read comfy, effortless, and carefree - not, slobby, slouchy, and careless. It's one - of- those, how to look like we didn't care, but still care ensembles.... know what I mean? To that effect, we channeled the man's closet ( because let's face it, men can just throw on a shirt and look great, right?) and paired it with simple black leggings, boots and bangles. With an all but plain vintage coach cross-body bag ( so having a moment right now), we're out the door for mimosa's, mingling and musing down Home Depot bathroom fixture aisle's. We should have saved this post for Thursday, since this look is quite thrifty, and we're quite proud of our newfound fashion frugality!

One of these days we'll show off a picture of our face, but we're in between color stages (it's back to blonde baby) and not looking so great right now. Plus taking a self portrait (at least a good one) is hard!
