Happy Thursday! We talked earlier in the week about making each moment a special occasion and dressing to look our confident best. So, I thought I would offer a few casual fashion style tips going into the weekend. This is an outfit I would wear on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon to run errands. I have also worn this on Casual Friday at work.
I decided to pop it with my white paper-mache necklace for more interest, and the necklace and the white sole of the shoes actually tie the whole style together. Here is a tip…white is now acceptable all year long, no matter how you wear it. Another tip is to take time and put an interesting accessory with your casual outfit. Sometimes these are great conversation starters with other women. I love to speak with others when in line at a cashier or just shopping in a store. I have met lovely people that way and it often begins over a complement. Either me complementing them or vice versa. An interesting accessory can open all types of doors.
These Via Spiga leather shoes was a treasure I found at Nordstrom Rack at the beginning of the summer and they are amazing. First I love the comfort, and second the athletic, edgy style. These do the same for me as a sneaker but just take the design of the shoe up a notch. Love them!
Rather than go black and white for this casual look, I decided to add some color with the blue cardigan. Color and accessories make a simple casual outfit special and help to build my confidence when out and about. If I see someone I know (which happens often), then I can confidently approach them to catch up with their lives or say hello…rather than running around the store and trying to hide! Though these are good shoes to run in.
I hope these two conversations will help you think more about your casual wardrobe. Now, the great news…Foxcroft would like to keep the giveaway open a bit longer, so if you have not put your name in for the $200 gift card on their fall collection then there is still time.
