effortlessly {casual} chic

My philosophy for dressing has always been about investing in really great basics and then sprinkling in more trendy accessories or pieces seasonally at a lower price point.  Some of my best wardrobe pieces are basics that I may have invested in up-front but still have over 5-7 years later and they still look great.

While I wear a lot of black and neutrals, I think that putting together an effortlessly casual chic look that looks fabulous all the time, is an important thing to nail down each season.  I for one am not a huge fan of leopard.  I think it looks great on everybody else but not necessarily on me, unless it is in really small doses.  Last year I bought my first pair of leopard flats, which I now wear often with all black and love them.  I also love this look below integrating a skinny leopard belt with well selected neutrals.  It’s an easy look to run around in, yet still look polished.  Just add some gold bangles and voila!
