So it's been a kind of an in-trend thing for a while now to pair more dressed up pieces with really casual ones. I do this kind of pairing a lot and really enjoy the mix (case in point, today's outfit). It's a little bit like dressing up the everyday, right? I think it's fun, stylish, plus it gets me more wear out of my wardrobe pieces.
But I have to admit, every time I'm putting on a baubly necklace over a camo tee or wearing stilettos with ripped jeans, a wee voice in my head kind of nips at me and asks me, "are we making any sense here?"
I call that voice Little Miss Overly-Sensible. Because when you think about it ... cargo pants and high heels? Really? In the same outfit? Girl ...
But shoot, style is about having fun with fashion, right? I probably shouldn't over-think it. But if anyone doesn't get it and asks, let's just say I dressed to go strutting down the lumber aisle.
