Simply Casual

Sometimes it is best to keep it simple. Working with what you have in your closet should not equate to a long, difficult, or drawn out process. Don't overthink it! There is a simplicity about both of these outfits and for the most part, I'm wearing everyday basics. A necklace can always easily serve as a statement piece and can make your outfit feel complete.

The first outfit is perfect for the burst of spring weather that a large portion of the US is having right now (yes!). The second outfit is great for fall, but still works well for a cool spring day. I usually do not wear different shades of the same color on top of each other, but the light teal shirt with the darker and brighter teal necklace on top has a nice contrast. Along with jewelry, hair accessories, and your makeup, shoes can also be a great way to make an outfit stand out and can make it easier to expand your wardrobe options. The Nine West fuchsia flats that I am wearing, which you may recall me wearing in the Yellow, But Not So Mellow post, add a completely different color to the teal combination. I found these babies on sale at Macy's!

If you continue to follow me, you will see that I tend to wear a lot of Nine West shoes. Why? I am always able to find a great deal in Nine West Outlet stores and in Macy's, and both stores generally have my size (10), which can often be hard to find especially when there is a sale. I do not wear these shoes often, but they were worth the purchase being that they were under $20. I also like to have all colors in my wardrobe, which allows for more flexibility with my overall style.

Most of you probably do not own a vest these days, but I have a few and they come in handy. It is an easy layer to add to make an outfit different, which is what I was able to do in the second outfit. I have worn this vest with dresses and skirts, so although a vest is simple, I'm able to use it in a variety of ways. I found the brown boots from Cathy Jean, which was one of my favorite shoe stores when I was living in South Carolina. Unfortunately, it appears that they may no longer be in business. What I love about the necklace that I have on is that you can remove the links, which are all different shades of brown. This is also a good quality piece of jewelry that was not overpriced that I bought at a store called Handpicked in South Carolina.

I'm originally from South Carolina, and moved to NYC by way of DC. I'm not the stereotypical southerner, but not quite the city girl either. I have always had a passion for fashion, and I started sketching designs when I was in high school. It is ironic to me that many of the designs that I was sketching in the late 90's and early 2000's eventually became popular items that you and I both probably had in our closets. While the dream of my line being strutted down the runway at New York Fashion Week works itself out, I thought that I would focus on another area of fashion that I enjoy - styling! I love being creative with the clothes that I have in my closet, the shoes that I have stacked in a book case, and the accessories that I have stashed in various places in my room. Styling is oh so fun, it lets me be a chameleon in a sense, and it allows me to show a bit of my personality!
