This is the only way I'm comfortable wearing a miniskirt during the day: with flats, an enormous soft sweater, and zero makeup. In the spirit of Keep it Simple week, I'm not even wearing any patterns (!!!!!!) and I can't even remember the last time that happened.

My search for a giant grey vneck sweater began immediately after seeing this image in Love Style Life - - I loved how the model styled it falling off her shoulder and that's the only way I ever wear this sweater now. 

This hat is one of my favorite pieces: it's the logo of the Chicago Whales, who were a baseball team from 1914 to 1916. Even though I don't care for baseball, I am obsessed with both Chicago and whales, sooo...I also never thought in a million years I'd wear ballet flats, but I'm so into these I've bought 2 backup pairs already. So soft, so easy, and I love the dusty blue. (They're still available here, in a zillion colors, if you're interested!)

Tomorrow Keep It Simple week will take a slight turn toward happy hour...stay tuned for a post about 2-ingredient cocktails!
