While I am always into trying new trends and making statements with fashion, I also have a signature style, so to speak. I think everyone has this {lately for most girls it’s a Piko top and leggings} but it is something you can easily throw on and feel comfortable and confident wearing anytime. For me this style is “vanilla.” Being the only brunette in my high school trio of besties, my girly blonde friends gave me this title. I always gravitated towards loose, flowy fabrics in neutrals, pastels and soft colors. Still to this day, I get text messages from them saying “I found something SO vanilla for you at Anthro!” and it never fails to put a big smile on my face. I have branched out since my high school days, but if I can’t find anything to wear, vanilla is the route I take. This outfit is the epitome of a “Brittany Vanilla Look.” These slouchy pants are the softest fabric ever and such a beautiful nude color. A pair of these are a must have in your closet for Spring because of their versatility and comfort! I wore it with this blouse that is one of my favorite colors and perfect for a nice Spring afternoon. Since it was such a relaxed, casual look I wanted to jazz it up a bit in the shoe area so I wore these amazing strappy wedges. These hotties will give you the look of a heel, but the comfort of a flat!! With such a simple vibe, I had to take things up a notch in the accessories department. Anyone who knows me, knows- ya girl LOVES a headband or head wrap! I literally have about a million and my collection just continues to grow! One like this could be worn as pictured or across the forehead, but for today and my {rare} straight hair I decided to keep it back on my head. I stuck with my new favorite simple go to necklace that is just a dainty little gold bar, but in it’s simplicity it is also so chic. My new favorite fashion vice {other than headbands} are Bourbon and Boweties bangles. O-M-G!!! I had always seen them, but never took the plunge until a trunk show at one of my favorite boutiques, Trés Carmen, and now I.can’t.stop! I want them all!! Not to mention their owner Carley is an absolute sweetheart; you gotta love supporting young women in business! They have a wide variety of colors and stones and you are bound to find one {or 10} you love. I started with a very vanilla mix of ambers, browns and blush pinks, but have since branched out a bit and have quite the nice little stash going. So now that you know my signature style, what is your go-to outfit that you feel your best in?!
