LOTD :: Casual City Chic

"Casual City Chic"


HAPPY MONDAY! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and I wish you a FABULOUS week ahead.

Monday's always a drag for most people and I am not going to lie because I feel the same sometimes so I do have days where I just want to dress casual but still somewhat polished because it still needs to be work appropriate so I decided to go with a t-shirt jeans and blazer combo but made it a little more chic by wearing a tee that has print and a little out there paire with average basic denim jeans and a complimenting blazer to match.  Whenever i wear something "basic" i never hold back when it comes to accessories because the final touches are always important to turn "basic" into "chic".

We start off with a leopard tee with a gold emblem design on the front by Topshop paired with my Forever 21 basic blue wash denim skinnies.  I belted the jeans with a my VIntage Salvatorre Ferragamo tan woven waist belt and left the tee hanging to keep the effortless casualness of the entire look.  For extra warmth I just added a beige cardigan by River Island, then to lend structure and tailoring to the look I wore my rusty red plush tailored blazer by ZARA Man juxtaposed against the boxy shape of the tee.

On bottom, I wanted to go with a super casual day wear so I went with my shell pink lace up brogues by New Look.  As the colours of the shoes is neutral it works well with the entire look and gives it that polished effortless casual feel.

For accessories, I went with gold toned jewellery pieces to match with the gold emblem design on the tee and the hardware from the handbag.  I added a collar necklace that has a skull and gems design by ZARA followed by a simple analogue watch by ASOS, a spiked bangle by Topshop and a belt style clamp bracelet by Accessorize.  I also added a bunch of rings by Topshop.

Lastly, the chosen bag to go with today's pairing is the JustFab dupe of the Michael Kors Orange Ostrich Hamilton which is the orange power player handbag.  The bag leads additional edginess due to the hardware and structure because it being squared with clean lines and it also adds a vibrant pop of colour to a somewhat monochromatic look.

That's it for today’s LOTD and until the next time…FASHION IS THE DICTATOR OF TASTE! ...XOXO...
