HOW TO MAKE YOUR CASUAL OUTFIT LOOK CHIC…

casual chic outfit One thing my friends will tell you about me is that I can’t pass a good reason to dress up. I just love how dressing up makes me feel. That few minutes in front of the mirror has a way of erasing self doubt and negativity. Slip my foot in a comfortable four inches heel and the confidence is up the roof. Having said that, every day style is my thing. Ninety percent of the time I am my casual self in basic pieces. Sometimes my casual is too casual and sometimes it’s casual chic, but in all comfort is key. Like I said in this style inspirations post, “nothing like being stylish while enjoying the comfort of your basics.” I know I’ll sound like a broken record, but blazers are the ultimate capsule wardrobe piece. Never goes out of style no matter what trend the world is forcing on us. Lol! Definitely one of my go-to when I want to create a casual chic outfit.

I wore this outfit to explore the city of Middlesbrough, an industrial town in North Yorkshire (UK). As a first time visitor there it was only right that we played tourist which ended us in Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, or mima. – A contemporary art gallery based in the centre. Quite a nice place with a roof top that gives you a view of the city from above. As you can see the weather was on the good side which is always a blessing here in the UK.

What is your go-to piece when creating a casual chic outfit?

    That blazer looks so good in you, you are stunning in red! 🙂 I agree a blazer can dress up an outfit nicely – I wear a blazer to the office to stop my outfits looking to casual sometimes! 🙂

    Hope that you had a great weekend 🙂 I just posted my weekday wear linkup, I’d love you to join! 🙂

    Love how you styled polka dots with the bold red blazer sis. You make casual chic so effortless. As you may have seen I am a BIG fan of blazers too. My go-to pieces when creating a casual chic outfit is skinny jeans with a blazer. I am sure the view from the MIMA roof top is amazing. Love playing tourist too.

    Lovely pictures Missy May. For me, a dress and a nice pair of Converses or my (fake) Doc Martens are my go to for a casual chic look.

    A blazer really adds some polish to a look, without being an uncomfortable piece to wear- it works just like a jacket (unless the weather’s really cold). I love this red version on you!

    Loving your whole vibe! That whole mirror thing is 100% true. Instant cofidence booster! My go to piece is a great coat, especially since we are in winter. Even in the summer though a blazer can take a t-shirt to a whole other level. Making an outfit instantly blogger chic. My friends told me that one time! I prefer a print in lots of color over anything else!
