an outfit made out of staples is probably my favorite kind of outfit. it’s super easy to put together and has a sort of effortless feel to it. on any given day, you’ll find me in some variation of this – jeans, a tee, and a sweater. the accessories vary the most. sometimes it’s heeled booties, sometimes it’s loafers. if i’m looking for a little extra something, i’ll toss in a statement necklace. if i’m feeling a bit more low-key, i’ll just layer some delicate necklaces. when you have a simple base like that, it’s easy to dress it up or dress it down, depending on the occasion or what you’re feeling that day. so, staples are good.

speaking of staples, my roommates and i had a pretty horrifying conversation the other night about injuries caused by simple, everyday things. i actually could not tell you how we got on the topic of it, but i truly wish we never had. there was talk of staples, a pencil, an axe (you can ask my sister about that one), and a dog’s mouth, amongst other things. i’ll go ahead and let your imagination do the work on those. trust me, you don’t want to hear that stories. especially if you’re about to eat tomato soup. (which one of my roommate’s was making while telling an awful story and it just sort of ruined it for me).
