You guys must be getting pretty sick of looking at my ugly mug, because this is officially the third outfit post in the last two weeks. I'm not quite sure what has gotten into me aside from the fact that spring is (verrrry slowly) beginning to make an appearance, and every time the sun so much as peeks through the clouds, all I want to do is be outside and go do fun stuff. I met a friend for an early dinner the other day and we got to eat on the restaurant's patio, which seriously felt like the most decadent thing ever. And although what I chose to wear wasn't anything fancy or out of the ordinary, it was a very "me" outfit, so I thought that made it a good one to share here. It's sort of my 'everyday effortless' look. Also, the sun was very, very bright - so that it created some weird shadows and washed things out a bit. But that's okay. All that matters is that there was sun. Sweet, glorious sun.
I'm actually slightly embarrassed at how often I wear this particular outfit. It's my uniform: black leggings, an oversized tee (this is one of my favorites because I really dig the high-low hem), a chambray shirt, and a hat. And you've seen me wear these shoes in more posts and Instagram pictures than I care to admit. But I love it. I love that everything I'm wearing is comfortable but still semi-put together. I do think that it may be time to trade in my husband's old fedoras for a couple wider brim hats (these are some that I've been eyeing), but other than that, I'll probably continue to wear this trusty little ensemble regularly throughout the spring.
When I'm wearing a simple, solid outfit like this one, I like to pair it with geometric jewelry to give things a little kick. These earrings were a gift from Robbie (awwww), and the necklace was a gift from my sister (awwww), who are clearly both well aware that I'm a fan of triangles. I picked up the bag last month after spending way too much time debating over it, then leaving the store, then going back the next day to get it. I'm so glad that I did because it's truly the best bag that I've owned in a long time. It was affordable but the quality is really great, and I love how versatile it is - I can wear it with anything.
My favorite accessory though is the watch, which is a new daily wear of mine. My pals over at Watchco sent it to me, and I absolutely treasure it. I chose this particular watch (from Citizen Eco-Drive) not only for the design (it's really gorgeous you guys), but also because it's light-powered. Yep. It's charged by any light (natural or artificial) and never needs a battery. Pretty amazing.

I may or may not be wearing this outfit again today, as I type this. And although it's raining (come back sun, come back!), it's supposed to be in the high 60's. I'll take it.
