"...the challenge will be to take a 'go-to' outfit, put a spin on it by styling it in a different way but still keeping a couple of essential components."
So...yikes...a "go-to" outfit? I don't think I have one! I decided not to overthink this task and settled for a summer "go-to" outfit. Being a Socal girl, my quintessential summer wardrobe includes t-shirts, shorts, and flip flops. It's not a favorite, but I guess it'll pass as a summer staple. :)
Here is plain jane me in the summer essentials mentioned above. Or should I say plain joe? I look like a sad little boy lol.
The transformation is nothing drastic. I wanted to keep the casual, laid-back look going but not so bum-like. I added a belt, long necklace, and traded flip flops for cute flats.
Top: Forever 21
Blazer (pictured below): H&M
Purse: Louis Vuitton
Necklace: Ann Taylor
I was excited to find these shorts at H&M but if I'm being nitpicky then I guess the color is too matchy matchy with my skin tone. Wait until I spend one day at the beach, you won't be able to tell where the shorts end and where my legs begin lol.
And gosh, I love this blazer to death! I swear I wear it every other day (or more). Ahhhh must make a conscious effort not to reach for it so frequently. This is the first blazer I found that can be dressed up or down with ease so I'm seriously sprung. I'm thinking of getting a spare to wear for years to come.
I can't wait to see what the other ladies came up with! I'm sorry mine was so boring blehhh. Please go to Radiator Session to see the full list of participants.
