A New Day..casually…

 

So, I’m not really a casual dresser.  (But before I get into all that…get this Tory Burch bag HERE because you know its fabulous and casual and you want it!)…

Turtleneck: A New Day – Target; Jeans: Lucky Brand; Hair Clips; ASOS; Heels: Jessica Simpson-DSW; Belt: Chanel; Bag: Tory Burch

 

Confession: I only own one pair of jeans.  You’ll see them over and over again too unfortunately.  Fortunately, they’re really good jeans (I’m Lucky, what can I say, lol)…

Anyway, yeah…I’m not casual and I was thinking about that recently.  I follow a lot of Instagram style influencers and a lot of their posts are what I would deem “casual”.

You know jeans, a cute sweater and the only thing different from yesterday is a new scarf or blazer.  I’m not knocking that or diminishing that style or those who love those simple outfits that fit perfectly into their everyday wear…far from it!  It actually got me to thinking that I need to put more casual outfits on the blog.  

Now, I’m not going to lie…I’d much rather wear a ballgown every single day of my life.  Flamboyant, bright, loud and hopefully designer are my go-to, every day goals, desires, dreams.  YOLO right?

But I’m learning to appreciate a more casual style.  And trying to find a way to basically be “ballroom casual”…jeans with a hint of something a little extra…a little special.

Today’s look does just that.  It’s a very simple look.  I LOVE the mock turtleneck I have on from A New Day – Target (I’m realizing just how much I shop at Target these days!).  Check out the PERFECT turtleneck here!!

It’s hard to find a good turtleneck.  I like mine very fitting and layer-able.  

So casual look – jeans and a turtleneck – Check!

But I added some “ballroom” elements…ASOS  large pearl snap hair clips (only $7.50!!), some cute heeled mules and a vintage Chanel belt!  

Continue to follow me as I attempt to be a little more casual but don’t be surprised if I slip in a ballgown now and then!

Cheers and Happy Monday!!
