Hey all! I’m back with a new outfit post! I’ve suffered from really bad migraines lately, so it’s been a little difficult to write new content. I’m pleased to say that I’m feeling okay today and hoping not to relapse. Migraines are no fun!
On a lighter note, it’s Father’s day today! Many of you are probably going out to brunch this morning and could use an outfit inspiration. I love a simple and casual “brunch” outfit without looking overdone. I have an outfit formula that (and I swear by this) is easy and efficient.
Here is the foolproof equation:
- One basic – Basics to me are closet staples: plain tees, jeans or a skirt, slip dresses etc. In this outfit, the slip dress is the basic piece.
- One interest/statement piece – Anything that has color, textures or patterns. The slip dress also falls in this category because of the metallic, shimmery material.
- One completer – This could be a jacket or sweater. My jean jacket and I go hand in hand per usual and instead of wearing it, I tied it around my waist for added depth. Since it’s warm now (hello summer!), you could do a statement accessory like a scarf, hat, belt.
- Accessories – These are pieces that you don’t normally leave the house without. I”m talking, purses, jewelry, shoes and sunglasses. My backpack and shoes anchor the outfit and of course, sunglasses. If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know that no My Style and Grace outfit isn’t complete without my sunnies!
I hope you will use this formula to create outfits that are fun and interesting! If you do, please feel free to share and tag me! Happy Sunday <3
