Casual Outfit of the Day

Beret: Mango
Leggings: Rag & Bone
Flats: Suzie Mas

I can't say enough good things about hats, and they are so unappreciated.  So many people feel awkward wearing hats.  I hear "I don't look good in them," from so many people.  Please give hats a chance!  This is a really basic outfit with some good texture and contrast, but it's the hat which really gives it character.  A beret is a really easy introduction into wearing hats: they look good on everyone regardless of the shape of your face or your age or your hairstyle.

Casual Outfit of the Day

Skull Bracelet: BaubleBar
Bangles: C Wonder
Blazer: Mango
Sweater: J Crew

Ah layering.  I love layering which is probably one of the reasons why I'm not a huge fan of warmer weather.  How can you do all of this in sweltering heat?  This outfit has three layers yet still is completely tailored because of the close-fitting blazer.  The Vivienne Westwood blouse is really the star of this outfit, and I know that I'm recommending covering it up with a sweater AND a blazer, but the mix of the blue hues is just amazing.  This blouse will be perfect to wear when it is warmer too.  Best be starting those arm exercises now.  It will be sleeveless weather before you know it.  this outfit started out as an office outfit, but morphed into casual territory with the funky accessories.  If your office is more casual, this could definitely work as an office outfit too.

Casual Outfit of the Day

Sunglasses: Anthropologie
Necklace: Belargo
Dress: Oasis
Sweater: Reiss
Boots: Frye

My favorite casual outfits actually take something dressy and tone it down.  I love being able to multi-purpose pieces and use them in a way that someone else wouldn't.  A touch of lace peeking out form under this nubby sweater is paired with opaque tights, distressed boots and then a ladylike bag.  There is so much texture and contrast going on with this outfit already, make sure the accessories aren't too elaborate such as the sleek sunglasses and simple necklace.

Casual Outfit of the Day

Jeans: Mother
Boots: Burberry
Earrings: BaubleBar

Every wonder what to wear to brunch when the weather is less than appealing?  You know you want to stay home and wear your pajamas and slippers, but what's better than brunch with your girlfriends.  This outfit takes the comfort out with you.  The boots are probably my favorite part.  I wouldn't even wait for it to rain to put this pair on.

Office to Date Night Outfit of the Day

Blouse: W118
Choker: BaubleBar

Even though the holidays are over, it seems like there are more and more occasions that call for the transition from work day to night out.  I personally never have time to go home and change, so an outfit like this makes a smooth transition.  Just tuck the gold clutch in your day bag, and if you think the sandals are a little too strappy for your work environment carry them along for a quick change from your every day pumps.  The choker makes a bold statement worn under the collar of the blouse.

Date Night Outfit of the Day

Vest: Gryphon
Earrings: BaubleBar
Shoes: Lanvin

This outfit combines several things I wouldn't normally pick, but they are all done so well, I surprised myself with my choices today.  I'm not usually a fan of jumpsuits because they are so often unflattering.  This one is redeemed by the draped front and the looser cut in the waist and hips.  I've yet to meet anything made out of gold lame that I would choose, but this vest with it's faint gold shine intrigues me.  I imagine it shimmers when the light hits it.  These shoes are a splurge, but they are just so amazing, I had to fit them into an outfit before they disappear.
