Happy Monday, friends! I’m still on a high from the BET Awards last night. The Bad Boy reunion and Janet Jackson tribute had me and the hubby grooving all night! But alas, it’s Monday morning and that means the start of a new week. Can’t believe it’s the last week of June; where has the time gone?! Summertime arrived a few weeks ago and we’re now in full swing – hot weather, humid temps and casual outfits. I’ve decided that Summer 2015 is all about being casual, comfy and chic, so pretty much all of my outfits will be just that. Today’s outfit proves that my #CasualSummer is in full effect.
A few days ago I did a little shopping at Nordstrom Rack. By now you know that’s one of my favorite places to shop, especially for basic wardrobe items. This sheer blouse and statement necklace were among my few purchases. I’m getting very particular about my style thee days and since I’ve claimed this the season of #CasualSummer, I’m all about basic, simple pieces. I’m actually thinking about putting together an e-book, offering an online (or in person) workshop or something like that. It’d be designed specifically to aid other shoppers on how to shop for wardrobe basics. I want to share the process, what to look for, and where to go. With a closet full of basics, getting dressed in the morning (or whenever) is so easy.
I also added a statement necklace to this look, another wardrobe necessity, and my $4.99 tortoise readers from eBay. Hubby actually suggested I add them to complete the look. I think he was spot on with that addition! I see I’ve taught him well, lol! When styling a simple and casual summer outfit, accessories like statement necklaces and cute glasses are a must. That’s also something I’d talk about in my e-book/workshop too! 😉
Speaking of casual and chic and wardrobe basics, take a look at Rachelle from Pink Sole. Her look was my favorite from last week’s linkup! She effortlessly styled her top with a cute skirt and a sensible pair of chic blush heels. I LOVE this look and it’s perfect for a #CasualSummer. Rachelle is always so fly and so simple with her style; her style is easy to digest, practical, and always stylish.
So tell me, would you be interested in my Wadrobe Basics and #CasualSummer Must Haves e-Book or online/in person workshop? What’s your take on my sheer blouse and statement necklace outfit? Let me know!
