Casual Flow: Bomber Jacket with a ModernTwist

One of the reasons my blog was created is to convey relatable style for the everyday woman and to encompass stylish and inspirational looks for various occasions, all on a budget. However, I noticed as of lately, I haven't posted many casual or corporate looks. So, I will definitely be revamping things a bit to uphold my original intent/purpose of blogging. :-)

The Look: So, about today's look, the bomber jacket has been around for awhile, coming in and out of style throughout the years. I must admit nothing says, "Sporty Chic" more than a bomber jacket. When I laid eyes on this abstract, colorful, longline bomber dress/jacket, I knew it was an absolute must. One being the obvious reason which is, it can be worn as a dress and jacket(multi-functional) and two this piece is unique and adds such a fun twist to the classic bomber jacket. Well, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. :-) What are your thoughts on bomber jackets?

The Styling: When creating this look the jacket was the statement piece, so in result I kept the rest of my look pretty basic. Pairing this bright and colorful jacket with a plain white tee and a pair of amazingly comfortable boyfriend jeans. (Ladies, if you do not own a pair of boyfriend jeans, please do yourself a favor and add this item to your wardrobe. It is one of my favorite go-to items for casual wear.)  I added the fringed sandals as they add a bit more funkiness to the look without taking away from the focal point of the outfit. I played up the subtle orange color in the jacket by pairing it with an bright orange purse and to top the look off, I added my mirrored sunnies. The hoop earrings coupled with big hair is always a win win for casual wear in my book. :-)

The Occasion: Any Casual event. (date night, low-key ladies night, casual gathering, etc.)

Orange -N- Spice & Everything Nice

Good Day Lovebugs!!

Hoping you all had a great weekend. Today's look features this pretty orange floral dress from Asos. I live for dresses such as this one; feminine, effortless, girly, and chic all at the same time. This dress is also multi-functional as it can be worn casually by pairing it with a denim jacket, it can be worn as a skirt, as well as, with a blazer for office wear. As most of you all know by now, I am all about looking stylish on a budget. Although, I did pay more than I would've like to spend for this dress it was worth it for me as I have the ability to style it various ways. In result, I achieve the most bang for my buck making the money spent, well worth it. :-)  Speaking of bang for my buck...so you remember this clear clutch featured in previous posts? Well, I felt today's look called for a mint purse, which I do not currently own. So, I improvised by layering a mint t-shirt inside of my clear purse and Ta Da...a mint purse is born. I'm pretty sure I could've used almost anything with color; such as tissue paper, etc. So, ladies if you have a translucent purse, you can definitely add some color to it, quite easily. :-)
 
I've had my eye on these shoes for quite sometime and when I graduated with my Master's this past May, I decided to reward myself with these beauties. I'll be honest these shoes are definitely an investment and although they are very whimsical and funky, I think they still are classics that I will appreciate and feel comfortable wearing five years from now. I also must say they are pretty comfy too. I walked, twirled, and danced and didn't have any pain.
