Is it just me or does this kind of ‘Off Duty’ wear magically make you incredibly productive for the day!? Seriously though. I always find when I have a Sunday brunch with a girlfriend or we stroll up the road for a morning coffee, this kind of urban sporty look takes me through a good portion of the day and I get so much done, the kinda stuff I’ve been procrastinating for a week! Genius, procrastination-fighting super powers (or it could be the coffee).
Keep it comfortable, practical and stylish with a few simple layers. For me personally, this look doesn’t come with much makeup so I really like to be understated. It should feel and look like almost zero effort has gone in, like you just fell into this casually cool outfit (shhh I won’t tell if you don’t). While baggy pants are a dream to wear, just make sure they are slim fitting so they don’t add bulk. Also if you are opting for a loose fitting top look at getting it slightly oversized so you can slide it off your shoulder or tie a knot on one side. Giving yourself an angle will draw the eye up and give you some shape.
So, I do have more pairs of white sneakers that I care to admit but I still get the glad eye when I spy a pretty new pair. It may be a mild addiction but (here I go trying to justify it) they lift up an outfit. Crisp white shoes go with almost anything and everything so when I discovered that Converse had added some fancy and very comfortable sole supports into their classic styles, I was super excited to give them a test run. Sneakers are also an awesome way to add personality to a look so if you'd rather some flair, go grab that feature sneaker and take on the world.
'To brunch and beyond!!'
