While usually I believe the epitome of ease and simplicity is an outfit built from a dress (just add shoes, no?), there was something wonderfully lazy about throwing on a pair of pants and a cozy sweater on this day instead. A few colorful or patterned accessories and it is hopefully not too dull. I just really like the color of this sweater and the feel of my velvet pants too much to fuss about putting together something more complicated or fascinating. Minimalism is why I've always preferred summer fashions.
