Growing up my mom would always try to put me in dresses and skirts and no matter what I always ended up making a mess of myself or throwing a fit about the fact I had to be so girly. I have never been the super girly type at all. I love a great dress because it has to be simple, but most of the time my favorite things are basic, high quality pieces, that are everyday friendly. I have dubbed my most comfortable “me” look as everyday tomboy. I am a button down freak and am in need of replacing some of my older ones since my body has completely changed since I was an athlete in college (thinner arms, smaller boobs, and a tinier waste) so this one from Madewell has my name written all over it. I love how rugid it feels like my grandfather may have worn it in World War II but it still could be dressed up with a cool maxi skirt to a dinner party.
As part of my daily outfit I wouldn’t live without my Frye boots. I swear by them and these harness ones that just came out in their Spring collection have my eye. They feel rockstarish but with a classic country girl kind of vibe. Metal and leather is always awesome in my book.
A floppy and cute hat like this gray one are a must when you are like me and go almost a week without washing your hair. So by day 6 or 7 a hat is almost necessary. I love wearing them this time of year as it makes getting ready way faster and with some great Warby’s it makes makeup a lot less necessary. Perfect for everyday work-at-home attire.
The one other piece that is a must in my daily wardrobe is a bag from Will Leather Goods. I have this one, but have been in love with this wool and leather one for a while. Their stuff is the best because it wears so well, stays clean naturally, and it is super versatile.
So if I could everyday wear the same thing this would be it. I am a total tomboy and when I pretend it isn’t true I find myself feeling super out of place.
