Casual Chic

Let me talk about layering in today’s blog post. Living in the San Francisco Bay Area, I have learnt how to layer my outfits, as its always cool and windy here. Mark Twain once said, “The coldest winter I ever saw was the summer I spent in San Francisco”. Isn’t that true for all you non east coasters living here. So on that note, I thought why not post something about “how to dress up casual and chic at the same time”   for a stroll in the park or running errands or whatever it is that you do 🙂

A good friend once told me in order to buy the perfect jeans you need the perfect body, perfect money and you should know the perfect place to shop from. Well at least I got the last one nailed down without burning a hole in your pocket (pun intended). The jeans I’m wearing in the pictures below are the high waist, skinny ankle style from Banana Republic and they fit really well around my hips and thighs and end right around the toes so that you can flaunt your shoes. I would highly recommend you try it out as the fabric is super light and comfortable for summer.

I styled the jeans with a loose off-white knit sweater from The Limited and topped it with a pretty pink and gold Aerie scarf. I absolutely love these Milano shoes I found on my trip to Dubai. Not only are they super comfortable to walk around, they look super chic and cute. I literally wear them on everything – shorts, dresses, skirts, jeans and they go with all my outfits. In the end I added this hot pink Kate Spade cross body bag to my outfit. It’s an awesome addition to any bag collection and they come in a variety of colors.  Oh yes, and don’t forget to checkout the Juicy Couture pink bracelet I am wearing. Don’t be afraid to add pops of color to your outfit to make the overall look more playful and fun.

Now, go get your chic on..!! 😉
