A Great Day to be Casual

Great day to be Casual!
So I was thinking about those evenings and weekends when you are not at work and you really don't feel like being dressed up to go out. Maybe you are meeting some friends for a drink. Or heading to a movie. You can still be casual but stylish. It's all about the accessories!

Look of the Day:

I think this outfit is very girly and pretty, but still casual. You can keep the soft fem look by using the off white scarf, or you can give the outfit a bit of color by using the purple. I think it would look great either way! Another thing I love about this look is you can get away with it in many places. You can go grab a beer with friends at a bar, go see a band play, or you could even wear it to a nice restaurant (not a fancy one, but a nice one). Yes, you are wearing jeans, but all the little details really dress it up! And the Clutch is from Felix Ray for Target. If you haven't checked out the new line yet, it is a must! So many cute bags for summer! Just try not to go too crazy!

I have noticed some great graphic tanks in the stores for summer. These really add a rock look when paired with a cute pair of jeans. Add a chunky bracelet to complete the look. Here are some great ones that I have found. Be on the lookout for sales on these tanks - probably around the end of June. You could probably get them at a great price around that time!

Something I love:
I'm loving the Tiffany line of Key charms. This simple one retails for $150.00. Makes a great gift... for yourself! It is slightly funky but still very feminine.


  1. I LOVE Diane von Furstenberg. I wish I could spend that much on even the sale price lol I love the outfit too in the beginning of the post. It's just so,cute, light, and fun. And I am a huge fan of the new Key charms from Tiffany's. This is a great post!


  2. I love your blog! Keep it up!!

  3. Just found your blog from your Stylelist comment. Very cute! I've been wanting that Tiffany's charm. Left it up on the laptop for a certain someone to find. Do you think the hubs got the hint? Nope.
