Hat, stolen from my dad; Earrings, Out of the Blue; Button-front shirt, Sirens; Tank, Ardene; Velvet skinnies, Suzy Shier; Boots, Locale.
This outfit was pulled together to fit two possible activities – ice skating or shopping. We wound up shopping, but this would have been an awesome skating outfit.
I haven’t had much luck with wearing hats since I cut my hair (apparently, I am having the exact opposite hat + new hair cut experience as Elizabeth from Delightfully Tacky). This is the first hat I’ve worn and liked. Normally, this hat has a folded brim, and I often would wear it without folding over the brim to give myself a bit more height.
After some layer rescrunching, I managed to create a turban-inspired Newfoundland wool cap. I loved pairing the ornate earrings with such a casual hat, and tried to capture the feeling of casual chic throughout the rest of the outfit. I didn’t want anything structured, I wanted fabrics with movement and amazing texture – the button-front shirt has incredible movement to it, as does the tank top… And I don’t even want to get into how often I feel up my own legs when I encase them in velvet.
What is your go-to casual chic combo? Do you have a standby “all purpose” outfit?
