“In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
To me, summer is all about simplicity. In the summer, life is fuss-free, barefoot, and low-maintenance. I want to spend my days lounging on beaches, reading books outdoors, or getting coffee with friends, not nitpicking over my outfits. Simplicity is the order of the day.
This outfit is one of the easiest in my wardrobe. It’s full of staple pieces – a denim skirt, a black t-shirt, and Oxford flats – with a statement headband and a pop of lipstick. I don’t even have to think about it.
“Simplify” has become something of a life motto for me lately. When I look back on my jam-packed schedule from last school year or all of my possessions sitting in boxes on the floor of my bedroom at home, it’s easy to see how overly complicated I tend to make my life and how much of my stress is self-generated. With this new season upon me, I’ve resolved to simplify my life in small areas, such as my clothes, time commitments, or possessions, in order to focus my attention on enjoying the things around me.
What are your summer resolutions?
