Confession: with the exception of my weekly photoshoots with my girl Angie, these days I rarely get out of my jammies during the week (hey, my office is in my house – you wouldn’t either!). And on the rare occasions when I do (like for dinner or coffee with a friend), I find myself opting for casual-chic outfits such as the one I’m styling on the blog today. That’s not to say I wouldn’t wear the dressed up, fun outfits I regularly feature on the blog – I used to wear those all the time when I worked for a fashion brand. But today, I’m styling an outfit that I’d be more likely to put on during the week days in real life, given the circumstances.
Click through to get the full scoop on this casual chic outfit featuring the sweetest little cold shoulder top in my favorite neutral (or at least it’s a neutral un my book!) – rosé, and my go-to pair of ripped skinny jeans.
Firs things first, let’s talk about this little rose top. I found this beauty at Forever 21 for only $28!! Forever used to be a go-to of mine in high school, but I drifted away in college because I was always so overwhelmed with the options. Thankfully, their website has seriously stepped it up, making it much easier to navigate and find what you’re looking for. I almost forgot what amazing deals you can score at Forever 21!
The silky material that’s trending right now often feels a little dressy for daytime, but when paired with a cozy cardigan, it instantly makes it appropriate for a casual daytime look. This little chenille cardigan is the coziest thing ever and it’s currently on sale for 40% off. Unfortunately, it’s sold out in the rose color, but act fast, because it’s still available in black and you’ll LOVE the fit + feel of the cardigan.
I’m a big fan of the high waisted denim trend happening right now and Topshop has been my go-to lately for purchasing high waisted jeans. Not only is their denim so affordable (everything is under $100!), but the quality is amazing and I always love the fit. These ripped skinnies have been on repeat lately, and they were the perfect pair to add a little edge to the ultra feminine colors of the top and cardigan.
I topped this easy, breezy casual look off with these olive ankle strap sandals to instantly make my legs look and feel longer + make it feel dressed up enough for a casual dinner.
Stay tuned for more outfit ideas this spring season!
