It’s true: the life of a blogger is not always glamorous. In fact, it often isn’t (for me, anyways).
When I first started out blogging, I remember looking at the websites of major bloggers and wondering how their lives seemed so picture perfect all the time. And then, one day, I stumbled across a quote on Instagram that read “Stop comparing your behind-the-scenes to everyone else’s highlight reel.” And it just clicked.
So many of our Instagram feeds and Snapchat stories are filled with the most exciting/fun/lively parts of our days. Events, parties, traveling, delicious looking foods. But let’s be real: that isn’t how life is every day. Not even close. Sometimes, we just want to kick it.
In honor of that vibe, today I’m sharing a look that’s super laid-back with the signature Sarah-Jane elements of fun style. These white denim shorts from Torrid have lace inset panels that elevate them ever-so-slightly from my usual. The raglan tee from Victoria’s Secret PINK is ultra comfy, but the contrast varsity stripes add a playful spin. It also reads “Step Up in This Beach Like…” on the back, because I’m sassy. Paired with a slip-on pair of copper-tone shoes, and I’m ready to tackle anything from errands to catching up with a friend over coffee.
Don’t get me wrong, your girl can get glam. But not everything has to be glam. At times, what matters most is supportive footwear and a gigantic, trusty satchel that you can throw just about anything into. For days like today, I love having some go-to comfy outfits on hand – easy to reach for, easy to slip into and easy to run around in. Perfecto.
