old classics, new details

Nothing is better than a crisp, white button up and a pair of jeans. For this outfit I took some old classics and made the new through the details. 

Creating the Look:
This look started with the mules. I wanted to pair them with an outfit that made them the focus, so I went with the classics. I wore a classic white button up and jean but I made the look interesting with specific details. For the button up, I decided to leave the bottom buttons unbuttoned. This allowed me to use my skin as a contrast to the white button up. Instead of classic jeans, I wore boyfriend jeans. The distressing added some edge to the look. Last, I added a pop of color with a faux ostrich skin clutch.

tomboy chic


I love a tomboy outfit but I always need a feminine flare

Creating the Look: 
This look started with the camo chinos. The loose fit and print gives these chinos a menswear feel, so I decided to continue that feel. Button ups are essential to men's wardrobes so of course that was my next item. Nothing says menswear like a letterman jacket, so I pair this with the look. At this point the outfit consist of neutrals, so I added a pop of color with baby blue heels. I complete the look with a basic bag and mirrored aviators.

cool denim

I feel like a denim jacket can make any outfit cool. The denim jacket in this look took the outfit from basic to cool.

Creating the Look:
This look start with the idea to be comfortable. Nothing is move comfy than a tee, especially a slouchy tee. I love the tee in this look because of its washed out look. It gives a "not taking life to seriously" feel. When thinking of comfort for work, I always wear my exact stretch pants from the Limited. They contour to your body without looking like leggings. Another item that always screams comfort is loafer. I chose forest green loafer because the colors in the look were neutral and I wanted a slight pop of color. Since the tee was slouchy, I want to add structure to my top half. This is where the denim jacket came in. I chose a denim jacket because I was going for a causal feel and nothing says causal like denim. I completed the look with layered necklaces and aviators.

all black


A colorful outfit isn't always need to make a interesting outfit. An all black outfit can be interested but focusing on shape and texture.

Creating the Look: 
This look started with the maxi tank. I love everything about this tank. From the length, to the wrap detail this tank is perfect. I wanted to make the tank the focus of the outfit so I pair it with simple items. I layered a basic tank underneath and wore slim leg pants. I paired the look with simple but sexy heels. To add a difference in color, I wore a black clutch with gold details and white and gold earrings. I completed the look with tortoise wayfarers.

stay-cation



One thing I miss, since I didn't take a big vacation this summer, is the laid back clothes.
