Of all the reasons to get dressed, I think I'm the worst at casual wear. What I like to don to be out in the world is a bit more done-up than a lot of people like on themselves. I just always like looking more ... I don't know the word, "dressed-up in dark goth clothes" (an example of my casual look here)? And when I'm being casssssuallll in my sense of the word, I'm usually in workout pants and a hoodie for my Sunday errands. I've got no issues dressing properly for work and have an array of garments for that. But just your run-of-the-mill, casual look is the one I find most difficult to piece together. I'm not usually a sneakers and jeans type of gal.

I've been purging my closet and house all week of unwanted items and I've been doing a pretty good job of being realistic with myself about what I will actually wear again and what I will not. And while a lot of the bags destined for charity are full of casual wear I didn't pull off, I'm keeping this yellow flannel top. Because gosh darn-it, I like it a lot. Even if I've only worn it twice in two years due to my struggle with casual clothes. I'm gonna find a way to rock it out in San Francisco, mark my words (and don't say I don't have goals).
