RELAXING PATTERNS | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

RELAXING PATTERNS | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

It was friday. Which basically means I was sick of dressing up.  Though I don't always like to dress to the nines, I do like to look put together.  So for friday, I paired my favorite pair of harem/touser pants with my favorite sweater.  This combonation was great for those lazy days because these pants are super soft and baggy, but since the ankles have zippers and are sinched, they appear chic.  This sweater honestly feels like you are wrapped in a blanket, and because of the color and lace detaling, it's the perfect essential to make any outfit look cute but feel comfy. To stay chic and street, I finished off the outfit with my (low) heeled ankle booties.  Since the heel is so small, it makes walking easy and effortless.  Lastly, I added a gold chain necklace for some bling, and threw my hair up in a half-up-half-down bun to stay simple.  This outfit was street and lazy-day worthy.

So remember, it is always okay to unleash your inner laziness.  But make sure that you still look chic in the process.  By pairing your favorite go-to comfy pieces with more stylish pieces, your outift is immediately transformed from drab to fab.

XOXO, Amanda
