Simple Chic Style

 
This week has been exceptionally busy (my inbox reached 95% full!). Also, my fiancĂ© started a new schedule and I no longer have the privilege of having him home during the afternoons. It's harder for me to take outfit pictures (although I will still try). Since I don't have a new outfit to share I thought I'd share outfits that are inspiring me. This last year I've been drawn to simple, chic, feminine looks. While I still have a fondness for playful prints, color-blocking, and cheeky design, I find that overall I prefer to dress 'simple chic with a feminine twist'. These looks are definitely inspiration for my wardrobe for 2012. Plus, I'm entering a new age group in 17 days--my thirties! So excited.

As much as I enjoy experimenting with trends, I always venture back to a simple chic look.

I love simple chic, it is the easiest one to go to on groggy mornings when you really have more important things to think about than matching and contrasting etc. Today I'm making stripes do a lot of heavy lifting for me, pairing them with a pretty necklace and sharp shoes. Boom! outfit! outta the house!

I hope you find a way to take outfit pics, love your style! and yay for 30's! I'm looking forward to mine as well.

a pair of well tailored, fitted jeans, a cashmere cardigan, and some leather flats can go a long, long way. especially if you are armed with an arsenal of accessories!

Simple and chic looks easy but hard to pull together sometimes. But I feel like you have been doing it all this time so effortlessly!! Welcome to the 30's lol :) The best is yet to come!

I love these looks! I'm definitely a fan of simple and chic. I love how Gwyneth, Charlize, and Olivia look in those pictures. I completely agree with you-I love girly touches but overall, I'm into simple, clean, sophisticated, streamlined.

its my goal in life to look effortlessly chic. Sometimes I just overthink outfits!

Savannah Marie said...

I'm loving the white blazer + jeans. A great blazer can pull an outfit together so well.
Congrats on entering your 30s! I turned 28 yesterday & started to think about entering my 30s soon!
Have a beautiful day!
Cheers,

I would never have guessed you were almost 30!! You and your to-be hubby look great!!

P.S. Since he isn't around for outfit pics as much, you should do some more healthy living/healthy recipe posts! I always love your yummy eats! The smoothies and stuffed peppers were great!!
