Boyfriend jeans are undoubtedly the perfect pair for pulling off a menswear/hobo chic look. While being just the right balance of trendy and comfortable, this piece has the guarantee of giving you an immaculate ensemble. The look that I have tried to accomplish involves a bit of boy, while adding a leather bag and minimal touches of gold for the chic finish. I must say how much I loved the ChloĆ©'s Marcie satchel, and I was thrilled when I came across this look-alike at Forever 21; as well as the Birkenstocks that Forever 21 recreated as well....

Palazzo pants are summer's must-have items, and they are amazingly comfortable and perfectly lightweight for the summertime. One of my favorite pair of palazzos are these marble print ones that are so wide that they are basically maxi skirts for each leg! The main reason I love these is because they can be worn during hot weather to let the breeze flow, or they can be worn on chilly nights due to the immaculate fabric. I have dressed these pants casually, yet kept it chic so it can be worn for any occasion. Wearing a big comfy tee and a denim jacket give it both a fashionable and relaxed look.

When you know your weekend is going to be full of exploring, it's best to prepare yourself. The OOTD must have the proper balance of being not only cute and comfy, but the shoes must be walking-appropriate. Here, I have worn them with a breezy striped maxi dress, and I also slipped on an edgy utility shirt before tossing my necessities in a bag and tucking in my favorite sunnies before heading out to a day full of exploration and breathtaking sites and scenery.

H A P P Y 4 T H !

Happy 4th of July to you all! In this outfit, I have gone for a denim-on-denim look (my apologies for repeating the denim shirt again!) with some pattern mixing and some touches of metal. This outfit is definitely on the comfy and casual side, just right for a picnic in the park or seeing some fireworks.

This next outfit is very simple and casual, similar to the outfit before except it has a bit of a feminine flow.

Everyone knows summer is for chillin' out. Here is a cool girl look I pulled together that represents those lazy summer days. Layering is the best for the breezier summer days, and adding denim and crazy patterns brings a whole lot of fun to the outfit. The tied-up denim and slip-on sandals complete the laid back look, the patterned leather gives an eccentric edge, and the golden accents help chic it up.
