It’s very unlike me to dress casually several days in a row. I typically over dress – but in a good way – or so I like to think! Maybe it’s the weather here…which has been terrible and stormy.
I really do fear ruining my clothes in the rain or mud so perhaps my casual dressing is a subconscious protective mechanism for my nicer clothing. Regardless, today…I’m casual yet again and I have to say I’m sorta digging it!
I bought this black, racer back jumpsuit from Ann Taylor LOFT last October (buy it here). I’ve worn it a few times and it’s always comfy and elegant yet sporty.
It is definitely an item that can be dressed up or down..and I mean waaay up or waaay down. I could literally put pearls, a nice blouse or halter and flashy heels with this jumpsuit and be ready for a nice cocktail party or I could put on a white t-shirt and Converse and be comfy chic. It’s nice to find something that’s so versatile!
To add some contrast I wore my Bisou, Bisou black and white striped shirt from JC Penney (get it here!). Now…I will admit…today’s outfit is a bit “mime-ish”…and I did think about that before leaving home this morn. I actually liked that look and I’ve had fun wearing it today (although I did jokingly mime being trapped in a box a couple of times to some of my friends and I know the outfit helped!).
The red shoes really pumped up the outfit and add some elegance also (sold out but I love these too). I popped on my pave hoop earrings from Chloe + Isabel (check them out at my boutique here or here!) and I felt this added enough shine to my casual Wednesday outfit. Hope you’re having a happy Hump Day! Xoxo..Cortneybre…
