If you haven't figured it out by now, the casual chic look is definitely my "go-to" style. It always tends to be a style that I can pull together quickly without having to think about it too much. I'm sure other mommies can attest to the fact that having ample time to get dressed and ready most mornings does NOT exist…especially working mommies! I've definitely mastered the art of getting dressed in 20 minutes or less and still manage to feel somewhat pulled together, which is a miracle in itself!
I always like to have one key piece to start with and then build from there. In the case of this outfit, I started with this striped button up blouse! I'm a huge fan of button up shirts especially when they have a looser boyfriend fit. I find them to be wildly comfortable and effortlessly chic. You can pair them with almost anything and tuck them in a few different ways. I love to do the front tuck (only tuck the front of your blouse into your pants), but you can do the half tuck (only tuck one half of the front into your pants), the full tuck or no tuck! Adding a bold piece of jewelry can really add another dimension to an otherwise simple and plain outfit as well.
I love to pull inspiration for different ideas to spice up the casual chic look. It always helps me to find a visual of a style or look I like and then adapt it to fit into my own personal style. Sometimes what works on someone might not work on you, so it’s always best to put your own spin on things! Speaking of inspiration, I'm sure you are wondering what these little green dots on my pictures are! I was recently introduced to Piccing, a new photo sharing site and mobile app (with more than 90 million users!) that allows you to upload an image, pick items in the image that you would like to find, and it will literally give you the exact or similar items so that you can buy them. Just brilliant! You can search all different categories like fashion, home/decor, beauty, crafts, and thousands upon thousands of pictures for inspiration that have all been "picc'd" to make the image shoppable. If you would like to take a closer look, you can view my profile here to see how it all works!
Have any of you used Piccing yet?
