I’ve talked about how I’m all about simple and easy when it comes to my recipes and food, so guess what? That applies to my fashion too. I like be comfortable and I don’t typically like to break out of my box. However, the more and more I get into blogging (YES, I blame you blogging friends) the more I’ve been attuned to trends. All I keep seeing this summer is this damn cold shoulder or off-the-shoulder trend. I received a cold shoulder shirt from my previous Stitchfix and Trendsend box. So naturally, I found myself buying and wearing an off-the-shoulder dress. I know that summer is almost over and that it’s going to start getting chillier soon :'( If I just keep wearing dresses will that make summer last longer?
The other two things I need to brag about are these shoes that are literally the most comfortable shoes ever! I realize that at 5’0″ I should probably be wearing higher heels, which you can find an exact similar pair with a higher wedge, but I have weak ankles and basically suck at heels.
The second part I need to talk to you about is this out-of-this world camera bag. Before I had my large Michael Kors purse that I use daily, and I’d just dump my camera into the bag and hope it didn’t get banged around. Terrible idea. So I finally found this awesome brand of camera bags. I bought one of their larger bags because I can use it for work and taking it to conventions (PS Is anyone going to TBS conference?). The bag comes with numerous padded, velcro dividers that you can insert and place into your bag however you want it to. It also has a built in laptop sleeve, plus numerous other zippered pockets. Seriously, you can carry everything in this Mary Poppins bag.
