I’ve written about my inability to pick fashion over comfort hundreds of times. I love shoes, but will probably never own stilettos again. I can’t walk in them, and I like tennis shoes so much more. I know they’re cool and fashionable (thanks, Carrie Bradshaw), but I’m just not that level of cool and fashionable. It’s one of the reasons I’ll never be a fashion blogger. The other reason being that putting together a perfect outfit isn’t as natural to me as it is for a stylist. It’s an art form I just can’t do without trying on 80% of my closet and spending one hour on making a single outfit.
The thing is, I’ve become proud of my version of “fashion.” It’s not so unique and exciting that people will stop me for photos, but it is does do something for the creative in me. I enjoy creating a look that I feel comfortable and beautiful in. I enjoy stepping out in confidence, because I’m wearing something that I feel good in and that flatters my (reallyyyyy weird) body shape.
I’ve gone back to comfort again and again in my posts, but I just feel significantly hindered if something is squeezing my legs or even just slightly stuck to my stomach. Maybe if I was my “ideal weight” I could get over tight clothes, but until then (aka forever), I will be rocking cozy pants and soft tees. They make everyone happy, so if we can just stick to the cute versions of each (see these dressbarn palazzo pants below) then we can live in them forever and feel good about it.

And if you thought I was going to talk about coffee more… I’m letting this outfit and the fact that Starbucks is literally an accessory for me do the talking.
