Simple Attire, Better Effect

21.6.12

Summer outfits Fashion Bloggers
Although I've only worn this skirt twice, it seemed appropriate for the evening's agenda ahead. This is the outfit that I wore to a friend's celebratory work promotion dinner, followed by a quick girl's night out. Quick because I had an early flight out for a wedding the next morning. The latter engagement's themed attire was stated to be what my friend Melissa called, "dress casual," however I knew better their version of dress casual was still going to be as chic as ever! But, I trusted my instincts!

And since I throw all preliminary thematic titles out the window when it comes to my dressing, I just decided to style accordingly ... how I felt! I was a bit exhausted from running errands, oh, and shopping, yet I did want to look nice in a relaxing but feminine, summery way.

I only changed twice, then abruptly fell upon the simpler version of the look that I was after. There was no sequins or lace intermixed in my ensemble thought process, believe it or not! It was the perfect look that I wanted. Mission accomplished.
All was well and good, everyone seemed to go for the exact same feeling. Not one soul overtly sexy or trying too hard; it was merely a stylish group of people who simply wanted to have an enjoyable time. It's quite funny how a simple look may even grant you compliments from people that you thought never even noticed your style prior to, well anything!

How's your week going? Did you have anything interesting happen?

  8. You pulled the casual chic look off perfectly!  I so understand what you mean too.  Often I try to achieve that balance and I've put together looks kind of similar to this with different types of skirts.  But I am absolutely swooning over yours!  I think I should head on over to F21.  Did you buy it recently? :) xoxo

  33. I love your outfit, simple but  very chic. I never really trust those casual dress codes and always prefer to get dressed up a bit. I always think you are far better off overdressed than underdressed.
