Being Basic

:: What I'm Wearing ::

Top: Lush via Nordstrom {on sale for < $28}
Jeans: AG Jeans
Shoes: Christian Louboutin 'So Kate'
Clutch: Leather Couture
Lipstick: Nars in 'Funny Face'

Sometimes I feel like a broken record when it comes to what I wear. It's all just different variations but the foundation is always the same: jeans, top, heels, and bag. But I'm a firm believer in wearing what you like. And for me that's this combination. All day, every day. 

I think the "kids" these days would refer to my redundant choices as "being basic." And I'll proudly wear that label, I mean I've earned it...this is basically the same outfit as seen here. #BasicBitch ;) 

But it just reaffirms my notion of wearing what you like. It's so easy to succumb to the pressure of wearing things that are constantly being thrown at you through fashion ads, retail windows, and well, bloggers. There's that pressure to wear what's "on trend"  or "in" and if you aren't taking risks with your clothing than, gasp, you're boring or basic.

To get to my point, if you like it, wear it. If it makes you feel good, pretty, and confident, freakin' wear it.
