Happy almost Friday! I wanted to bring two inspirations to get your outfit ideas ticking. For a long time I felt as if dresses were meant to be styled up. Giving a casual flare to dresses is right up my alley. I am a busy mom with a husband overseas and plenty of off days. So sometimes I am not in the mood for anything but cute sneakers with an outfit. I decided to try laying out two outfits the night before and I love it so far. Thankfully it fell in line with my mood today.
Remember to relax, take a deep breath and have fun trying on different outfits. If casual and laid back is your thing then rock it. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to make every style perfect. Don’t style your outfit because that’s what you think you should wear but what you want. I take my time and try out the first piece that comes to mind or I see. I can figure out if it’s needing less or more. I don’t try different pairs of shoes on each foot but hear me out why. You simply cannot get the big picture and I recommend dressing as if you’re wearing that outfit for the day. This is how you end up late the next day because you could have sworn that dress would have gone with those shoes. Now your closet or room is looking a hot mess, you’re back to square one and you should have left five minutes ago.
Let’s Get Styling
Since my dresses were my main focal point of my outfit. I wanted to add pieces that would compliment and add depth to my style. I reached for the first pieces that caught my eye. The thing about these dresses is they are effortless and any direction you go with styling it will look fabulous.
My black dress and jean jacket is a basic go-to for myself but it can leave an unfinished look. I always talk about when an outfit needs a little flare to it and this is it. Animal print is always winning to me and I had the perfect Cheetah print sneakers that weren’t too busy. I accented my outfit with a dainty necklace and Erimish stack.
I cannot get enough of tee shirt dresses and they will always stay in style. Typically you will find them to not have a form fit and will have an appropriate length. Which makes them ideal for teachers, mothers, students, casual Friday in the office and zoom quarantine style. This camo is more of a mute tone but still may come off busy. So I preferred a neutral pair of sneakers and threw a light jean jacket around my waist. The jean jacket functions as style and convenience when I get cold or don’t want to wear it when I won’t have the option to put it down. It took me less than 10 minutes to think, style and hang up my outfit choices. Sis, simplicity is always a great go-to when you’re crunching on little time. As always your confidence makes an outfit not the other way around.
