Fun Personal Style On Casual Days

I Live For Fun Personal Style On Days I’m Able To More Casual.

I’m all about fun personal style day when I can pull my hair up and enjoy the camaraderie of a casual day. As an entrepreneur, I’m always mindful that my personal style is an extension of my brand and I’m loving the fall’s latest denim trends. There are so many fabulous fun personal style ideas this fall, but for me there’s not enough free time for me to rock them all. Whether I’m dressing for a casual day hanging with my family, or ‘swanking’ it up for an evening on the town, I live for days I can enjoy my fun personal style. This fall, the biggest buzz around denim comes from pieces that aren’t traditionally made from the fabric. For my own fun personal style I’m loving the tattered look, jumpers and baseball caps.

I have to admit, with all the new looks my  favorite are the edgier jeans with slightly more wear and tear. No secret, I’m boyfriend jean girl. The perfect fit gives me life. I love a great fitting torn, vintage or ripped pair.  Recently, I’ve committed to a new favorite pair. Not only am I checking for the shorter lengths, but I adore the extra holes + more weathered feel. They’re my trump card:  sexier and ‘spunkier’ than my others. Shamefully, I’ve been grabbing them every few days, but of course, I’m playing with a variety of  tops. For most denim days, I go for a fitted black, white, or grey tee under a fitted below the waist blazer. It’s a clean look that’s classy, easy to pull together, and rather fab with a great statement necklace.  Occasionally, I’ll  opt for a cashmere sweater  + blazer + bulky scarf combo as the weather calls for more layering. Topping it off, I grab a pair of army green (sizzling color this fall) suede, pumps or a strappy- metallic peep toe (super sexy) finish the look off.

The Fun Personal Style That Didn’t Have Me At ‘Hello’.

I admit,  initially trying the off the shoulder tops dominating street style’s across the US the  the last few months, it wasn’t an instant hit for my brand. Maybe I needed to get comfortable exposing the scar on my right shoulder, or maybe, the initial pieces I tried weren’t a great fit. Then I ran across a white, off the shoulder cotton blouse I loved at first sight. The piece quickly became a staple piece for my fall denim days  and  I’m still loving it. For our first date I paired her with some boyish, worn, boyfriend shorts, and white converses. It was super cute and comfy. Next up, while the weather was still in the 70’s is October in Chicago I took advantage of mother nature’s kindness by pairing the blouse with my newest, most comfortable pair of ripped, ankle jeans. Now days my off shoulder blouse has become a replacement for my staple white button down. Go figure, who knew how versatile it would become. Today I scooped my favorite neutral, So Kate, gold-rimmed Ray Bans and got in my ‘Can’t tell me nothing’ zone.
