I hope you are enjoying your weekend whether you’re planning on hitting up the town tonight or staying in with a movie. I had a busy day out in service than running errands around town. I always want to look put together and comfortable when I’m out and about running errands. This might pose a challenge since my sweat pants are just so tempting to wear just about anywhere! But before I leave my home in my college lacrosse sweatsuit I hear the words of my mother in my mind, “Take a moment and give what you’re wearing some thought. You never know who you’re going to meet.” So as I frown (because I know she is right) I listen to her wise words and try to manage a look that meets my comfort and style needs.
A great chic look that can be thrown together rather quickly will consist of items that you love to wear and don’t require a lot of prep. My “go-to” casual looks usually consists of my trusty lightly distressed boyfriend jeans from Forever 21+, a t-shirt, a blazer and some cute flats. Leggings with a baggy sweater, a patterned scarf and some cute flat boots can also be a great alternate chic/casual look.
Today was a tad bit nippy so I switched out my usual blazer for a heavier winter coat. I wore a black and white striped henley with my boyfriend jeans and finished the look with bright pink pointy flats.
