Basics Again

Shorts: Salvation Army Tee: Piko Shoes: Seychelles

It's funny how simple outfits sometimes make the most impact. Something as simple as khaki's and a loose fitting tee shirt transforms into a great style. I think a lot of it has to do with confidence, and when I wear outfits like this I tend to be more laid back throughout the day which makes people look at my like " I want one of whatever she's having..."

Oh and these pictures were taken in front of a weird fountain we have at my apartment complex. It's a huge fountain with absolutely no purpose other than sit there and be pretty. I really like using it as a background for my photos but it seems like whenever I head over there to take pictures they are always doing some sort of maintenance or lawn work so I've almost completely given up. But this morning I had a bit of time to kill so I thought- why not give it a try, and to my surprise it was empty, YIPPEE!!!

Thank you all so much for your birthday wishes for my mommy, I told her to check my blog and it made her day!

I love those shorts, so slouchy and comfortable looking. That fountain is insane, I thought it was a pool. I bet it would make for some fun drunk times ha ha. It looks so glorious and sunny where you are, I'm very jealous!

Oh I know what you mean...When I'm feeling pretty, and just throw on a loose tshirt and skinny jeans it completely relaxes me and I end up getting so much accomplished while zero chaos seems to ensue!

Love the outfit! And I totally know what you mean. The simpler, the better.
I love to wear basics and then to vamp it up with the accessories too! My basic of the day, grey tunic cinched at the waist with a belt. On display, my gorgeous new ring!
