classy stripes

Happy Friday!

Heres a classy outfit, for a classy day. This dress is perfect for when you want to look very put together, at very little effort. J.Crew makes the best, posh, dresses and I love them all. This one is so comfy, and so chic at the same time. (Which is very important for my closet..) This dress can be worn to dinner, a Broadway show, cocktail party, wherever you want. I highly recommend finding a nice dress from J.Crew and it will take you many places. Add some cute accessories~statement necklace, metallic shoes, etc~and you’re golden.

Have a great weekend!

floral pants

Once again, I am posting about patterned pants/track pants. Why? Because they are so comfortable and so cute. They are the central point of an outfit and make the whole outfit fun and chic. You don’t need many accessories because the pants are so loud and proud, but I always like to add a statement necklace to pull it all together. The whole outfit is from Nordstrom, which is where I get everything I feel like. Nordstrom has great choices though. The Juniors section is cheap and chic which is why I buy a lot from there. I also love the Savvy section, and the shoe department of course. 

Overall, I love this outfit and would wear it during the day, or out to dinner at night. It is fun and fabulous, and I suggest everyone to have at least one pair of fun pants.

mixing patterns

This is a great casual summer day outfit. I love mixing patterns like this because they are fun and don’t look odd together. The floral shorts are so pretty and were a sale item from J.Crew a couple of weeks ago. The tank top is an old Juicy Couture top that I bought four years ago in New York City but have just started wearing.

I haven’t conquered the rules for mixing patterns but I just like to make my own rules up sometimes. I don’t like stripes and polka dots together but florals and stripes are cute. I think this outfit is perfect because the navy in the shorts goes with the navy stripes and is a classy combo.

Fashion is about creating your own style, and wearing what you feel comfortable in. Sometimes things might not look that great, but it’s up to you to make those choices and do what you feel best. Wear what you want and what you feel comfortable in. Style is about mixing and matching and being creative.

What are other patterns you like to mix?

printed shorts, always a chic option

 

I love these shorts! I got them from a local boutique, but they are so soft and silky, and can be worn with many different tops. I picked a grey Alice and Olivia top from Saks, because the gray is subtle. A black top makes the pattern pop more, and white is a bright option too. The bag is Marc by Marc Jacobs and I wear it with everything. The leather is so soft and of course, black goes with everything. Printed shorts are always a great option for summer because they are light and loose and are casual, but can be dressed up or down. To dress them up, wear wedges and a black jacket, and a silver or gold necklace.

Printed shorts can be found many places, since summer is ending, take advantage of sales!

graphics are a must

These pants are fabulous! I am obsessed with them and they instantly make a great outfit no matter what top you wear. The pants are from Nordstrom and are sadly sold out, but many more like them exist. Track pants are a must have and I have four different pairs and wear them constantly. The print makes them pop, and the black makes the pattern stand out even more. I have also worn a white tank with them which works as well, but black adds a nice edge. Of course, gladiators and a necklace add the perfect finishing touch.

Track pants should be in everyone’s closet because they are comfortable, but so cute at the same time. I suggest buying a printed pair (I just bought another one from Nordstrom I will wear in a future post), and a solid pair. I have black and a grayish olive color. They can be found in any store too. Buy a pair before Summer ends! (Even though a darker color is great for Fall.)

~~Tip~~ I always like to tuck in the front part of my shirt in almost every outfit I wear. It adds something different and makes the shirt a little more fitted. Try it out and see what you think!

last bits of white before fall

This is the perfect Summer outfit. The neutrals are so classy, and the bright necklace adds a great pop of color. I love white jeans and I try to wear them all the time in the summer. I have many different shirts I wear with them but this one is a favorite. It is from Free People and is so soft and comfortable, and I love the length to wear with pants. It comes in a couple other colors, but I love neutrals so I bought the black. White pants are everywhere! I bought these a couple years ago in the Dash New York store. I love the Kardashians so when I went to their store, I had to buy something and these are such a great staple made by Siwy Denim. The fashion rules always state, no white after Labor Day, but sometimes we all break the rules. I have a feeling I will be wearing these pants if the weather stays nice in the beginning of September.

casual boho meets subtle glam

This outfit I pieced together in about 3 seconds. I have never worn these items together and I think they go along pretty well. The lace cardigan is from a local boutique and can glam up any outfit, while the girly lace with the acid wash shorts create a nice contrast. The palm tree tee from Wildfox is a nice in-between. I really like this outfit and it would be good for a festival. It’s different than normal festival clothes, no high-waisted shorts or crop tops here! The gold wedges also add to the glamour aspect and are a nice neutral color. A cute floral headband could make it have a more boho vibe (I just don’t own any!)

I think this outfit could be good on a normal day, running errands, out to lunch, etc. I would pair it with cute sandals, in a gold or white color. My favorite item is the tee though. Wildfox has great tops, all so soft too. I own so many t-shirts and sweatshirts from there and I adore them all! It’s a nice little casual element to any outfit.

floral + casual white + wedges

I thought my first Daily Style post would be about a casual summer outfit. The thing I love about this outfit is that it can be dressed up or down. I decided to dress it up with a pair of gold wedges I got for my birthday. The floral cold shoulder blouse adds a different effect because the sleeves are open and not closed, which makes it light and airy. The white shorts from J.Crew can be worn with so many different tops. The shorts are one of the best items I have purchased all summer. I wear them constantly and they are perfect when you don’t want to wear tight shorts everyday. They come in white, pink, neon yellow, and navy and are only $49.50. The wedges are from Nordstrom and are the Kendall and Kylie Collection for Steve Madden. They are unfortunately sold out but Nordstrom carries many great pairs that are similar.

This outfit is perfect for a casual summer day, or an early dinner out.
