OOTD: Casual Style

I took these photos the other day in London. The weather was nice and I was in the mood for some outfit photos. I am loving the casual style look this summer. I find it dead comfy and so easy to style. It literally takes me minutes to put an outfit together, and as a busy mum of 2, every minute counts.

I need my outfits to be totally comfortable, but yet very stylish! The kids are on summer holidays for the next few weeks, so that means we are super busy, trying to make the most of what we have left of summer (weather permitting), and juggling all sorts. Life is incredibly busy at the moment, but I won’t have it any other way.

 

How to Rock the Casual Style Look

Here are 2 style tips I stick to –

 

Focus on the Accessories

Keep everything else cool, and focus on the accessories. In my case, I am drawing all the attention to my sandals and my sunnies and it works. For you to get the Casual Style look right, your accessories have to do the talking. So scarves, sunnies, hats, footwear, bags, should be the focus, and not the actual outfit. And not all at once. I see some people rocking their accessories collection all in 1 outfit. That is not a good look.

Stick to a maximum of 2 colours

For you to get the casual styling look right, you should stick to a maximum of 2 clothes (not counting black or white). Anything more would be a little too much for a casual look. I would also avoid colour blocking for a when it comes to nailing a casual style, and I rather opt for monochrome colours as they are safer and easier to style casual.

OOTD: Spring Fashion

Hey we have another outfit post at last! Thank goodness!My posting schedule has been all over the place these last few days, thanks to my laptop going crazy, struggling to keep up with me, and other life stuff. I am hoping to get back on track next week so please hang in there with me.

I took these pictures some days ago while holidaying in Essex. The weather was beautiful, and I had fun rocking some of my spring pieces.

 

 

I am really loving the spring weather at the moment. The weather is cool, the sun is usually out and there has been little or no rain. Spring fashion is also looking up, I am loving the new pieces in the stores. There are so many amazing designs, I wish I could have them all! I am also looking forward to summer fashion. Time to show off a bit more skin eh? How are you finding the spring weather?

 

 

Everything I have on is an oldie but a goldie. I found the outfit easy to style, the pieces fell into places easily, I didn’t have to over think any part of it. That is the beauty of a capsule wardrobe. I know I have written a few times about having a capsule wardrobe, and the benefits, but it is so underrated in the fashion industry, I think a lot more needs to be said about how beneficial a capsule wardrobe really is. The fashion industry seems to be focused more on buying more, rather than buying what you need to create your signature style capsule wardrobe.
