Lately I've been thinking a lot about my outfit posts and how much more comfortable I've grown in front of the camera. I do like (LOVE!) to be comfortable. And because of that, today I'm letting you in on a little secret...
I don't always, and in fact rarely, wear vintage dresses or put together outfits or have hair that is styled. Not that I'm really 'put together' in my fashion choices or big on hairdos but you know what I mean. A good deal of my time lately has been spent pulling my clean hair up into a big bun, and wearing comfy clothes around the house and very simple outfits to the job. My nice clothes would get stained easily in the kitchen or serving food (both at my house and at The Grit) so I wear cotton skirts and a fitted boyfriend t-shirt. Or, I wear what I've dubbed my minestrone making outfit.
Complete with scarred knees from several childhood bike and skateboarding accidents.
Even my skin care routine has simplified with just some tinted moisturizer on the face and rose salve on the lips. Slap and go!
This doesn't mean that I'm doing away with fashion posts or that I'm putting away my fun thrifted/vintage finds. Nope. It just means that I've shared a bit more of my true self in my photos and here on the blog. Honestly, it's awesome for me to not have to think about dressing up right now...and when I do it'll be a special treat.
And speaking of special treats, today I'm making minestrone soup!
This book has an excellent recipe for it...and pretty stellar illustrations too. I can't wait to ring in the first day of fall with a big bowl of soup. What? It'll be 88 degrees here tomorrow? Pffft. Doesn't matter. It'll be fall...FALL!
So, what about you? What's your favorite comfy outfit? Are you excited about fall? Have a great soup recipe to share? I'm all ears...
Oh, and everything I'm wearing is thrifted except for my old Bensimon shoes.
