who doesn’t like a comfy casual look to bum around town in? especially if the color scheme is red and khaki. even though this ootd is laid-back through-and-through i still like to add a bit of polish to it. that’s where a few fun details come in and the right accessories. let’s take a look at the chino’s first. they have cargo pockets, a tapered leg, and zippers. put them together and what have you got? bippity, boppity, boo. (name that tune) i couldn’t resist that one… but you get the point. all three of these details add subtle sophistication to an otherwise ordinary pant. and the striped sweater? dolman sleeves for starters. sleeves trimmed in solid red and a high/low hem.
as for accessories, thong sandals have the addition of a toe ring. instead of a handbag, i chose a red backpack to reinforce the color scheme. it also gives me the ease of shopping hands-free and has that cool factor. the sunnies also add to this casually chic vibe with aviator frames. and a bold lip? why not? it adds a little sass. and who doesn’t like that?
good golly miss molly is it already june? ‘cuz may zipped by in a blur. before you know it, it’ll be christmas . so let’s enjoy today while it’s here!
