I love minimalist and casual style, as it’s what makes me feel most like myself. I’ve always loved simple and classic, even if a clothing item has a little bit of flare to it. With summertime here, I’m looking forward to wearing more dresses. One of my favorite things about wearing dresses in the summertime is that I’m able to layer them with cute jackets and light cardigans. Today I am sharing one of my favorite class chic looks that rocks during the summertime, and basically any other time of the year, as well. Talk about a win!
There is nothing as timeless as a simple black dress, which is why I can always grab this outfit for any occasion. Adding a casual denim jacket and a pair of wedge heels can help bring a plain black dress up a step to the perfect casual chic look. This look is perfect for a date night out on the town or a girl’s day brunch at a local cafe. It’s really splendid.
The best part about this casual chic look is that it’s super comfortable to wear. I don’t know about you, but comfort is a huge thing I’m always on the lookout for whenever I’m shopping for clothes. If I’m not going to be comfortable in what I wear, then why wear it? I got this sleeveless black dress from Target and it’s soft and cozy! This dress also comes in a few other colors and styles (stripes, v-neck), so if this isn’t your style, you can find one that is.
The medium-washed denim jacket is one of my most favorite items ever, as it’s a great accessory piece for almost every season. The fact that I’m able to roll the sleeves up a few rolls was so ideal for me, as I was planning to wear it in the warmer months. I grabbed my denim jacket at Target in the fall of 2014 and it’s still in amazing condition! I’m pretty sure I saw the same one there this past season, so keep your eyes peeled!
I added my small black tote from Primark and my favorite black wedge heels to help make this outfit become more chic. Thus making it the ideal casual chic look.
Ladies, I have to let you in on my new holy grail product that I am just loving! Are you one of those ladies who always has a hair tie or two around your wrist? Well, I have always been one of those girls. From growing up as a dancer, I always had an extra hair tie or a few around my wrist at all times. It was a must-have accessory for every outfit, everyday. I’m sure there are a few ladies out there like me, right? As I got older, I realized that I looked kind of silly wearing a hair tie on my wrist when I was dressed up for a special occasion, so I stopped wearing one. And of course, from then on the struggle was more real than ever. I’d keep them in my purse, but they’d always end up disappearing. It seemed like a never-ending cycle until I found out about Bela Bracelets, and gosh, I’m so excited to be teaming up with them today!
Bela Bracelets are bracelets that are made to have your hair tie fit perfectly inside them. Genius, right?! The best part of Bela Bracelets is that they’re super affordable, so that every lady can own a few. It’s amazing how much a simple bangle can take something as plain as a hair tie and make it look so classy. For this outfit, I chose to wear the “Mandi” bracelet in silver (my absolute favorite) and the “Emma” bracelet in rose gold. I have a beautiful gold scalloped bracelet in gold, as well. Each style comes in silver, rose gold, and gold.
These bracelets are perfect for everyday use and any special occasion. I’ve literally been interchanging mine and wearing them everyday since I’ve gotten them. They’re made really well and are completely timeless. Every lady has to have at least one of these!
