What I Wore: Pale Colorblock


I think at heart I will always be a jeans & t-shirt girl. I often enjoy dresses and skirts, and like getting dolled up every once in awhile. But when I ask myself in the morning “I want to be comfortable today, what should I wear?” the answer is almost always jeans and a tee. That’s not to say it can’t still be interesting, or dressed up if needed. Throw on a blazer and heels/wedges and the outfit goes up a few notches. And I think interesting tees like this one I wore yesterday keep the combo not boring. I love this tee. It is the most soft and comfortable thing; the neutrals go well with a lot of different outfits; and I think the contours of the colorblocking are flattering. Triple win.

On a less happy note, my goal this afternoon is to sit down and do my taxes. I know. I leave it to nearly the last minute. Since being self-employed, I inevitably owe money every year, and it’s inevitably a not-happy number. So I tend to put it off as long as possible. Once I get it done, though, it’ll be a huge weight off my shoulders. At least for another year, haha.

Tonight is also date night, and it’s the boy’s turn to pick. I’m hoping he picks an overlap between our dining passport and Austin Restaurant Week, because that would be awesome. We’ll see, though.

Are you a jeans & t-shirt-wearing procrastinator like me? 😉
