Granted, I know remotely so feel less inclined to do more than the bare minimum in terms of getting ready for the day but, aside from that, I’ve found that I’m looking for simplicity in all aspects of my life—including the outfits I wear when I’m not sat at my desk, too. Now, I spend my scrolling time looking for low-lift but stylish outfits I can re-create with pieces I already own. It was just this weekend when I was looking back at the most recent saves in my Saved folder that I realised my of the looks I’d saved down featured a very easy two-part formula: a black top and blue jeans.
