Casual Doesn’t Have To Be Boring

December 8, 2016

dcs_4724It really doesn’t have to be. And it should’t be hard either.

Staple items are my absolute favorite.

Loose tee’s, pants & leggings.

Let’s be real, this winter isn’t like a normal winter at all (for me at least). Just recently, like this week, it started raining in SF and everyone was bummed because we were so lucky for so long.

With that being said, even easier for a casual look.

My trench isn’t even a full long sleeve and it’s perfect for this season, ha!

Typically I wouldn’t wear a regular tee with leggings, but this AllSaints one was super loose and long; it covered necessary areas.

The ideal white tee is sometimes hard to come across because they’re either too see-through or don’t fit absolutely perfect.

I have a white one from AllSaints, but it’s so transparent I might just have to save it for summer (lol). This gray tee fulfilled the job of comfortability, length, and casualness. I paired it with my favorite leggings on the planet from Nordstrom. They’re thick enough for my liking, but don’t feel heavy, and affordable!

My trench is from AllSaints (kinda having an AllSaints moment over here, but when am I not, they have the BEST stuff!). I fell in love with the sleeves ending at quarter length. It’s different. There’s also cuff links at the end, these small details suck me in and I’m sold so easily! See similar here.

I wore this outfit to go to happy hour with a girlfriend and wanted to be extra laid back so I wore flats.

Like the most casual while still looking presentable.

dcs_4576dcs_4715 dcs_4694My flats are from Shoes of Prey. I love them, but damn…white pointed flats are soo hard to keep clean. Since they’re pointed at the top it rubs into everything and scratches them! Ugh, don’t even get me started on stairs or cobble stone streets. I die a little inside.

Other than my maniac obsession with trying to keep my white shoes from getting damaged, they’re simply so cute and probably my favorite pair of flats.

From the wood heel to the wrap around the ankle to the pointed toe, they’re an all around chic pair of flats that can be worn multiple ways. Pair them with a casual look like I did or with ripped boyfriend jeans rolled up at the bottom and a striped top.
