Laid Back

I am a sucker for a great casual yet stylish look and am forever fighting the urge to fall into my laid back California girl rut.  It’s not that I don’t love getting all dressed up and feeling fabulous, I DO!  But some days I’m living in laid back looks of sandals and shorts, especially here in Palm Springs where outside of galas, our idea of “dressing up” is a sundress and wedges!

I do have a few casual day rules I always follow to ensure my looks stay clear of “too lazy to care” (no yoga pants all day everyday ladies!)…

1. Always accessorize even the most simple outfit.  i will always add a watch, a pair of earrings, a fabulous hat, a statement necklace, something that shows I still have a sense of style.

2. Don’t be afraid of a structured bag.  It’s easy to pair a weekend look with an easy crossbody or slouchy hobo but I love the juxtaposition of a fashionable, structured satchel with shorts and sandals.

3. Play with pattern, texture, and seasons.  Just because it’s February doesn’t mean I can’t wear a lightweight pair of shorts, so long as they are paired with a more “winter” piece.  Get creative!

As always, thanks for reading!

XO, Niki
