I turned the big 3-0 last Thursday, but the day passed as uneventfully as any other. Between everything that's been going on lately and feeling under the weather, I was honestly very grateful for a night at home watching Bones on Netflix. If I've learned anything as I enter a new decade, it's that sometimes the simplest pleasures are the best ones, and the same can be said of one's wardrobe.
Several closet purges (and a few consigned items) later, I think I'm finally getting a handle on shopping wisely. That's where this camel blazer comes into play: It's a versatile alternative to black, lending warmth to shades of grey and blue and dressing up the most casual tee, jeans, and sneakers combo. 25-year-old me would've scoffed at camel and gone for a bright orange version that'd probably get worn twice, or splurged on a twee printed frock instead. By contrast, 30-year-old me understands the appeal of neutrals and aspires to dress more like a woman, less like a girl.
