Casual Pastels

This past weekend was absolutely perfect in NYC.  The BF and I decided to spend the day shopping in Soho.   He was feeling generous so he bought me a super cute top at Topshop.   Gosh, I love my boyfriend.  Sorry, mushy moment.

Onto the outfit, I bought this skirt at a DFV sample sale a few years ago.  While it’s such a cute skirt, I’ve only worn it a couple of times because I categorized it as one of my “dressy” skirts.   Here’s how I wore it in the past (1 and 2 ) In an effort to wear this awesome piece more than twice a year,  I decided to take it out for a casual spin.  Well, somewhat casual, Frank thought I was super dressed up.   Here’s what I came up with.  I threw on a cotton tank with a linen blazer and put on my cute Zara flats.  I added on a few light accessories.  What do you think?

How do you create a casual look with a dressy piece?

Tank: H&M; Skirt: DVF; Blazer: UO; Shoes: Zara; Bracelet: F21; Necklace: Banana Republic

  3. Ooh loving those shoes! They’re so pretty. And what a nice bf 🙂

  4. I think that’s a great way to dress down a more dressy piece! I live a place where no one dresses up, so I look way overdressed most times I step outside! 🙂 It’s alright though. I think that using texture is a great way to dress something down, like you did with the cotton and linen. That sandal is adorable!!


  5. HOW on earth have I not seen those awesome shoes on ZARA’s site before?!? Those are amazing. I just placed an order the other day but now I’m thinking about placing another. 😉

      They are comfy too! I would totally go for it, now they have them in different colors, blue on black and gold on black. I wish I could get them all. 🙂
