Sometimes I Can Be Simple

I've always been a complicated complex person.  I think I get it mostly from my grandmother who was probably the most complicated person in our family.  Trust me, I'm not over exaggerating.  My grandmother would not let the EMTs put her into the ambulance until she was properly dressed and her makeup was done.  Seriously.  The woman's about to have a full blown heart attack and she's making sure her lipstick is on point.

My grandmother had a big impact on my life so naturally I try to look my best and settle for nothing less.  I can be very complicated at times (Joey will definitely agree on this) but I do have a simpler side to me.  You don't have to be wearing 6-inch heels, sequins, or a wrist full of arm candy to look good.  Sometimes it's better to do without all that fuss.

Top:  Just a simple navy tank top  //  Cardigan:  Le Fleur Guam ($8.00)  //  Pants:  Ross ($16.00)


Flats:  Kors by Michael Kors ($14.00 at Ross)

Okay, I know I just said no sequins, but these sequins are clear, so they don't really count, right?  I mean if I didn't have a little sparkle in my outfit, it just wouldn't be "me".


Simple brown smokey eye, black liner, and mascara.  I'm not even wearing foundation either, just the new Garnier Oil-free BB Cream (review coming soon) I received recently.

What about you?  Are you complicated, simple, or just simply complicated?

P.S. Don't you just LOVE this color scheme?  Pink, navy, and heather grey are perfect together!

  1. Your grandmother sounds like a fantastic sassy woman. I draw a lot of inspiration from my grandmother as well. Although she liked to keep things straightforward, and I think I'm a bit more complicated.

  2. I am so simple , everytime. But sometimes it's not cool. Every body needs a change. I adopt this thing from my aunt.

  3. Simple is the way I like ALL my fashion. Anything else is just too much work for me :)

  6. ha! My grandmother's sister was the same way. She went to bed with a full face of makeup "just in case". She even had her dressed picked out for her funeral service- I'm not even joking!

    Yes- I love those colors =) I'm so complicated I appear simple but got all kinds of twists and turns going on.
