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!
