I Feel Pretty | Simplified

October was quite possibly the busiest month of my life.  There really is such a thing as having too much good going on.  Don’t get me wrong, I feel incredibly blessed during this season of my life.  But wow, do I ever need to find some balance before the holidays hit!

Simplification has been the name of the game lately.  The only way to do a lot WELL is to keep it simple sweetie.  Especially when it comes to getting dressed.

This outfit is the perfect example.  Start with two neutrals – black and beige – and repeat.

Simple, right?

My new polka dot infinity scarf from Leslia NYC was the inspiration for this outfit.  I picked it out first, then repeated the colors to build around it.
