My Style // Getting Back to Me

It has been five months since my last outfit post, but pregnancy and post-pregnancy will do that to you. As you guys know from my What I'm Wearing Now posts, even with the best intentions, maternity fashion just isn't at the top of my priority list by half-way through the second trimester. It's also basically freezing in Chicago from October through March and I'm just not ambitious enough to brave that sh*t to show you pictures of what I'm wearing. Getting to (sort of) wear normal clothes that I actually really like again though, coupled with the fact that I just spent a week in a place with not only phenomenal weather but also an insanely gorgeous natural backdrop, inspired me to shoot a couple of my current favorite outfits. And here's the first one, in all its glory.

This look certainly isn't anything fancy or complicated by any means, but I love it because it's probably the exact outfit I would describe if someone asked me to define my style. It's comfortable but not sloppy. It's a little boho and a little minimalist and casual but also dressy enough to wear out to dinner (which is what we did right after we snapped these photos). I wish the earrings showed up better in the photos - my stepmom bought them for me in a small art gallery boutique we visited during our stop in the tiny town of Jerome and they're gorgeous. This look just makes me happy, man. It feels good to be getting back to me. And I can't wait until it's warm enough to wear it here as well. I have a feeling it's going to be my summertime staple.
