When Casual Meets Cute

Soft materials, lightweight textures, comfy basics…that are laid-back, effortless, crisp, and chic. 

These are just a few of my f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e descriptive go-tos when it comes to everyday dress. I’m a firm believer that comfort builds confidence and this boils right back down to: the right everyday dress.

For me, fit is a huge part of finding the right clothes in which to feel your best everyday self. And in my case, I seriously can’t stand when anything hugs *uncomfortably* too tightly on top  — so an over-sized lightweight fit is one of my favorite outfits to post. In the summer: loose-fitting tees are a must (like today’s peplum tee!). In the winter: cozy over-sized cardigans are a staple. When things get too tight or materials feel synthetic or hot, I start to feel uncomfortable and often a bit insecure about the fit — which definitely takes a toll on how confident I feel. When it comes to outfitting – it’s key to keep your comfort in mind; not just the trends and what everyone else is doing.

To balance a loose-fitting #ootd — pair an over-sized cozy tee with distressed skinny jeans. Find a pair that fits you just right, and make sure they’re comfy to wear (we all know how some skinny jeans are incredibly uncomfortable). These white distressed denim by Frame are expensive, but a pair I’ve been wearing for over 2 years now. And I not only love the quality, but also the fit. In contrast: I absolutely love wearing  loose-fitting trousers, and gaucho pants as well — but you want to make sure to pair these babes with a tighter-fitting shirt. I don’t want your outfit to consume you — so make a lightweight tee tighter by tying a knot at the bottom.

I’m consistently posting soft and lightweight basics on my Instagram account and my casual cute favorites. Details below! XOX

    I’ve been loving the whole babydoll top trend. Unfortunately it doesn’t look the best on much petite body

    This outfit is too cute! I love the blush colors and white ripped denim. I love anything ripped and distressed, haha! But this outfit really is adorable and chic while maintaining comfort.
