6 Casual ::: Printed Pants and Denim Vest

I usually dress very casual.
Whenever I go out with my friends, I'm always like,
'Can't I just wear sweatpants?'
- Natalie Portman
I certainly cannot wear sweatpants and even if I did want to I would not be allowed. So, this is my definition of casual when I go out with the girls: loose fitting pants. This time I wore it with a white tank, denim vest and my new pair of pointies.

6 Shorts ::: Bermuda Shorts

“I would show up for work and look at the pairs of tight, shiny shorts or jeans that made up our 54 wardrobe and wonder if we were making Showgirls...”
--------- Ryan Phillippe
If you are like me and the thought of wearing short shorts for day makes you wonder like Ryan Phillippe in the above quote then the Bermuda shorts are for you. I love that they cover-up all my insecurities, like spider veins, quite nicely and are still trendy.
 I've had these Ankara Bermuda shorts for sometime now, I didn't quite like how I styled them here formerly; but that's one of the reasons for having this evolve my personal style and I'm glad to say myself that I've been noting some improvement. I also hope that if you are a regular reader you learn from my good and bad outfits and rock what works best for you.  
I have been giving tough love to my feet with these chunky tan ankle strap heels. They go with practically everything in my closet.....I consider shoes like that a great buy.

4 Black Maxi

Maxi dresses are also my best friend. They take me from my morning coffee, to the beach, to nighttime. -----Hilary Rhoda
It's funny how it is that I tell myself that I love maxi dresses and yet I have only this maxi dress in my closet. I  have it in mind to change that, but until then I will be styling this one in all the ways that I can.
I love that the fabric outlines my feminine curve without clinging to it; making it appropriate for day.
I also love that it is in plain black so that I can work any accessory with it.
 I started off with neutrals.
