There are some splendid days when, I am able to assemble a look within minutes without having second thoughts. This outfit was the outcome of one such day. Ready to head to a meeting followed by an event, I required an outfit that was a balanced mix of casual and formal, shabby & chic. I started with this butter soft pleather pencil skirt and paired it with a feminine beaded cream top. A lot of people are vary of wearing leather in the day time but the trick is just to dress it down with more casual pieces to make sure it shines the right way. I was going to add a blazer but decided to instead opt for a a casual denim shirt with a faded wash depicting aptly the shabby chic look. I cannot stress enough on how key the role of accessories is to make or break an outfit or to make it appear more casual or more event appropriate. I decided to add my staple black lace & leather pumps, a studded clutch & reflective sunglasses to add pizzazz to this ensemble.
I have been having such crazy busy days on a personal and professional front and I am now left longing for a holiday! Although, I don’t see that happening anytime soon as I have way too many things to accomplish before I could even think of relaxing. However, I am quite open to the idea of a mini getaway so if you guys have any suggestions on where I could pop in for a couple of days, do leave it in the comments below. I am thinking of a beachy location down south but I can always reconsider! I hope you guys have a wonderful start to this last leg of 2015 and you kick ass everyday!
