Putting the Chic in Chicanery

Shirt dress, J.Crew. Beret, Jacob. Belt, Banana Republic. Tights, Tommy Hilfiger. Flats, Browns.

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. When I know someone is coming by and want to appear effortlessly chic just lounging around the house, I throw on this favorite shirt dress. Maybe a pearl necklace, if I'm feeling adventurous. So when I answer the door and get my due compliment, I feign ignorance. Who, me? So sweet of you to say.

What happens when someone puts too much effort into appearing chic?

Not that I ever put any effort into anything.

That beret is so cute on you! And only you can pull off royal blue and red and not look like Superman. I'm giving you a fist pump right now.

haha I love your honesty. I secretly do that too. And on the rare occasion I do "jeans and a t-shirt," you can bet it took 15 minutes to pick out which t-shirt looks the most effortlessly put together.
You know I looooove these bright colors, those tights are so bright and cheerful!
