Often times, an outfit for me is a full on production. I've never been one to be able to prescribe to the minimalist line of thinking when it comes to my ensembles. Rather, I prefer sequins here, patterns there, and jewelry to wrap it up. But what my style really needs whenever I'm feeling in a slump is a bit of simplicity. I think that the way people style a plain white tee shirt and jeans says a lot about them. There are pretty much endless possibilities when it comes to that combination: a fact I tend to overlook while reaching for my fancy frocks and baubles.
Last weekend, however, was the perfect time to exhibit this simple and comfortable outfit. For a day of browsing vintage shops and the mall for Christmas presents, this combination of the best pair of jeans I've ever owned (here's lookin' at you, Gap) and a similarly comfortable tee shirt was perfect. One of my very stylish male friends said that I looked very "Americana": a style that I am proud to show off whenever I can.
