Personal Style Monday – My Version of Casual Wear

Happy Monday! Todays Personal Style Monday is all about casual wear. If you ask people what they consider to be casual wear, the answers probably range from jeans and a t-shirt to sweats and hoodies. For me the perfect casual wear essentials are a pair of leggings, sunnies and a cute pair of flats. To put it simply, I try to be as functional and practical (and cute, lol) as I can be when dressing in casual wear.


Trench: Goodwill// Leggings: H&M (Purchase HERE)// Flats: Thrifted, 2nd Avenue// Necklace: Thrifted, Be Thrifty// Sunnies: 2nd Avenue


So needless to say, I was in heaven while wearing this ensemble. My casual wear has become more fun and stylish in my “older” age. I used to be the jeans and t-shirt girl and I wore very minimal accessories and was usually wearing sneakers to top off the look. Now, I go for fun prints, flowy tops, unique jewelry and at cute shoes. I like to think I’ve stepped up my casual wear game. I think of it now as “grown up casual wear”.


In keeping with today’s casual wear theme, I decided to choose I am Simply Chic as my favorite look from last weeks Personal Style Linkup! The converse sneakers, fun print pants and scarf make for the perfect casual (and chic) look. I also love the sunnies and trench coat. Her causal wear look includes some of the same items I wore in my look; sunnies, trench coat and fun/printed bottoms!


So tell me, what are some of your casual wear essentials? Are you the jeans & tee girl or are you a fun/print leggings kinda gal? Let me know…and be sure to drop by & say hi to I am Simply Chic!

Also, don’t forget to linkup your personal style outfits below. Kindly remember to link your look back to this post. Again, happy Monday! Talk to you tomorrow. Be blessed & stay safe…XO!

    I definitely think you can still be casual but not look lazy! The right amount of interest and accessories like you have done help the cause! My winter casual attire are boots, skinnies, easy top, scarf, moto jacket. Comfy, but still cute!
    Thanks for sharing with Manic Monday!!

    thanks for the feature lady!!! you are showing me up in your casual look. i need to step my game up! the look you featured is about as casual as it gets for me. i don’t own any sweats. i wear my hoodies for working out only, and i have some nikes, but they are still more of a fashion shoe than anything. being in cali it’s easy to do the laid back casual/ chic thing. thx again!!!
