Hello beautiful gals! Welcome back ❤
This week I wanted to wrap up some style inspo that is quick yet impactful. I always pick my outfit out the night before class or a big event. It saves SO much energy for the next day and relieves you of decision fatigue. The stress of trying to find an outfit under 5 minutes is so draining and honestly can turn your morning upside down if you’re already running late.
My OOTD is for allll my ladies who maybe aren’t ready to make a BOLD statement, yet are willing to be the center focus in a room. How is this possible? Easy… simple accessories take the cake and don’t strain the eyes.
Spring is approaching but the weather hasn’t called for skirts and bandeau’s just yet. Combat the shaky weather and wear a light, long sleeve shirt. That way when you take off your jacket, you’re not attacked with goosebumps but you’re also not dying of heat from a thick, long sleeve top.
This sheer, green top is from Wild Fable! Available at your local Target, how convenient is that! I recommend everyone see for themselves the simplicity of this brand. I got this top for $14 and I love pairing it with different necklaces each time. I think that’s the beauty of simple shirts too, the constant style change you can do everytime!
Whether ripped jeans are your style or not, they definitely add versatility to an outfit. From here it takes my OOTD for casual to chic. These jeans are high waisted which went perfectly with my short-torso top. For a day out, I don’t want to expose my stomach; high waisted jeans are essential for your closet! I also decided to pair my jeans with light brown boots. Any boots would go but it balanced the dark, green top I had going on.
My staple of choice for an impactful outfit is the fanny pack. Is that the correct term or does it still sound corny? Oh well! I didn’t need a belt or an extravagant garment to tie the look together, in fact I made my life easier this week by adding all my essential tools like my phone directly to my waist line!
The confidence this brought to my walk knowing I had something special tied with my outfit made me go from casual to CHIC BAD-ASS. This fanny pack from Michael Kors was on sale and I had to snag it when I saw the leopard print design. This bold accessory matches with solid colors like my green top from Wild Fable. Which makes it that easier to style your outfits the night before.
Although you can’t see it, I’m wearing a wireless unlined bra from Victoria’s Secret which changed my life for the better. The jump from wired to wireless bras improved my flexibility throughout the day and changed how tops fit over me. A wireless bra gives my top a smooth finish on the sides without any bra bulges… No, I’m not afraid to admit it! The straps crossing over extentuate my collar bones and tie into that “I tried really hard but didn’t” look to my outfit with some more complexity.
Last but not least, my top gave a lot of room to add a chest piece. I wanted to keep the chest exposed and add a silver choker to not distract from my gold fanny pack. Thin chokers play up your outfit in a small but lasting way. I got mine from Forever 21 for $6!
How did you like my simple OOTD? Save yourself the stress of complex tops and transfrom a simple top to an effortless glam. No, you don’t have to splurge on Michael Kors to get a fanny pack. Check out Wild Fable from Target or Forever 21 at your local mall. I think fanny packs are going to make a comeback for their easy, accessible features in cute designs.. you heard it here first folks!
Tell me your simple OOTD of the week!
Much love from Virginia ❤ Thank you so much for reading and believing in me!
