thegirlwhonevertalks 's Thoughts:

alright so you know those days where you just feel like being completely comfortable and don’t feel like trying when you get dressed?

well today was one of those for me. i hate those mornings because i usually end up wearing a pair of jeans and a tshirt or sweatshirt. but, i have found the cure!

so basically i have taken a simple long, blue cardigan and long white tank/dress (which are pretty darn comfy) and played around with ways i can wear them. they are almost as comfortable as sweats if you don’t mind crossing your legs all day and the two can end up being pretty cute (in my opinion)

picture numba one:
i added a pale pink scarf tied around my waist as a belt that i found in my grandmas old stuff to add some shape. i also added a pretty simple bird necklace to add some interest. its very simple, but pretty effective/

numba two:
i buttoned it up so there isn’t so much “negative space” (can i even use that phrase to describe an outfit?) and added a “jew scarf”. i’m not being anti-Semitic here, thats just what all my jewish friends call it. haha i don’t know the real name, but yeah, a shaggy scarf. again, extremely simple and comfortable.

numba three:
i added my long string-cowl and the necklace, along with some boots. any kind of longer scarf would work in this case.

numba four:
i added some brightly colored tights. it adds a pop of color and kind of dresses it up a bit (for as much as this outfit can be dressed up). i also belted it around the outside of the cardigan this time. i love belting :). i feel skinnier when i belt ahha.

numba five:
what i started with.

toodles,
rachael xD

Inspiring post! I've been wanting to buy a tank dress but feel that because of my large mexican hips they don't look good on me, but the cardi over the dress gives a slimming effect!

amazing!!! I love all the combos you made out of ONE pairing. also totally know what you mean about belting.. .sometimes I feel it's like "look dudes I DO have a waist... right here... it was just hidden by my baggy sweater/shirt, promise." plus two striped of darker color along the side also have a slimming effect. Not that YOU need it!-- with all your long limbs and minimal flesh.
