CASUAL CHIC IN BLUE-BLACK + HOW TO GET INSTANT LONG LEGS

 

Before I hit the streets of Paris in my sneakers and scarf, this was what I wore to breakfast + did quick photos…..a pair of fitted skinny denim, high neck blouse / turtle neck and my trusted long coat which I have been wearing non-stop. To finish the look, I wore some ankle boots which I first wore in this look HERE and finished the look with my mini orange bag to add a pop of colour to my blue-black ensemble.  And voila, that is my outfit of the day. If I do say so myself, it is an effortlessly casual but chic look.

 

COFFEE RUN & DIFFERENT WAYS TO STYLE THE BOMBER JACKET

 

I bought this “bomber jacket” about 7 years ago. Yeah, you heard me right….7 years ago! On the day I got it, I got a black version too. I have worn the black version more than I have worn this one and that is why it looks almost like new. I had it stored away for some reason but decided to bring it out on this day for coffee run……

This look is a typical errand look book and the kind I spot when I do things like school run, drive the boys to places like football, basketball and any of their activities really. Another casual chic school run look book can be found HERE

But first, Fashion! We have been having a fantastically nice and bright weather here and I can’t help it but to get out and about. I love all things free and flowing like tunics and kaftans for summer days and today’s look is not exception.

 

DENIM DAY

 

 

On a day like today when I want it to look like I didn’t try, I throw on a pair of my favourite denim and finish the look with a tunic style “logo maniac” denim shirt.

Talking about “logo maniacs”, did you know that wearing all things logo is a trend to try this summer? Yes, I shared that and more trends to try in my last summer trends to try. If you are a trend lover, go on and have fun with trying the logo maniac trend.

 

DRESS DOWN DAY :::: SHIRT DRESS & LACE UP FLATS

 

 

I was invited to host a “style lab” in a group recently and one of the questions I got asked was what is the difference between dressed up and dressed down? I loved the question and I answered it to the best of my ability. Today, I will share the answer I gave with you……….

 

Right here on the blog, minimalism, practicality, chic and sleek are a few of the words I use a lot and today’s look embodies all 4; the look is dressed down yet polished with a hint of street style.
