Outfit Post: Casual Friday




 

 
Top: C&C California (old)
Shorts: Zara (last seen here - suuuuuper cute version here)
Leopard Smoking Flats: Target
Sunnies: H&M
 
As much as I love dressing up and being girly, sometimes I do want to keep my look casual and easy. I wore this a few weeks ago when Bill and I went to an afternoon movie - we usually ride our bikes hence the shorts and flat shoes. I also threw a scarf in my bag in case my legs got cold while we were in the theater.
 
This outfit is actually combining two things - an oversize top and leopard print. I decided to wear the shorts since the top was so flowy and drapey. I thought it was proportionally balanced. And since my color palate was black and white - the leopard shoes just fit right in. I kept everything else super basic with minimal jewelry and I never go to the movies without gummy bears. They're my favorite!

Oh & we had a little visitor pop by during our shoot - check it out for yourself :)

 
 
What's your go to comfort or casual style? Hope you guys have a GREAT weekend!

  1. I'm loving the look, but especially the top! Looks like something just about all body types could wear, and being a plus-size gal I appreciate that. Gorgeous! My go-to casual style is usually a layered look. Lots of whites/neutrals and a great pair of jeans with flats. Have a great weekend. =)

  14. You won me over at gummy bears. Love the casual look especially the slippers. I'm the same with the shorts and flats. It's usually my Sunday afternoon look. Strappy sandals, neon shorts for color, and a knit top are my absolute favorite comfy pieces.

  18. Oh I love the casual yet chic simplicity of this outfit! I was just debating the leopard smoking loafers I got from Target because I was going to keep the other pair I got in maroon, but now I'm thinking I need both...
