I love an easy and comfortable outfit just as much as the next girl! Since it has been raining non-stop in the Charlotte area for the past few days, today I’m sharing a casual and rainy day outfit that I really enjoyed wearing. I picked this simple outfit because of the messy weather and because I knew that we weren’t going to be doing that much:
- Grabbing lunch
- Running a few errands, including a trip to TARGET!!!
- Casual dinner out with some friends later in the evening 🙂
When I’m going to be out for a majority of the day, comfort is key. On this type of day, I always know that I will need comfy feet and non-fussy clothes and accessories! Also, Jacob is 9 months old now and I have to be able to get to him easily, be ready for anything, and maneuver effortlessly. Right away I knew that my riding boots would be the best choice for shoes. After I chose those, the other items fell into place. A soft button down top with a good drape is so versatile and can easily be dressed up or down depending on jewelry and shoes worn with it. The boyfriend shirts from AEO are great and slightly longer in the back, so the front of them can be tucked in nicely. They also work great for leggings. I consider this Olive green one a staple in my closet. I often go straight for this shirt and it is one of those items that we all have in our closets that we “just know” works every time- making getting ready so easy. I’ve shared before that I adore the look of mixing metals in home decor and the same goes for with my jewelry! I wear jeans most of the time and H & M has the most awesome and affordable selections of skinny jeans that fit so well- I have had mine for three years and they have just gotten better with time! Roller-ball fragrances have been good to use while on the go and take up no space in my bag. I took Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black with me for refreshing while out. As far as I’m concerned, cheetah print is a neutral so I added a little with a thin belt!
I usually go with very simple and natural looking makeup that gives me a nice subtle glow. With the tone of the Olive green shirt, I wanted a more stand-out lip color. The lipgloss color is so gorgeous for deeper skin tones (just for reference, I am NC45 in MAC foundation) and it is just the right amount of color for a statement lip. Here are the makeup items I used on my face with this outfit:
BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Gutsy (Similar)
MAC Get Away Bronze Blush ( Similar)
Do you have an item in your closet that you “just know” works each time?
