This laid back look truly embodies everything that is my everyday wear. I live for {and in} comfy skinnies, a cute top & a pair of booties. It is what I feel my best and most comfortable in. The effortless look is really where it’s at and with a few little details can be so chic! I have had this top for a while, but just hadn’t made it a number one priority on my long list of outfits to wear. However, after seeing how huge the metallic trend was on the Oscar’s Red Carpet Sunday night I knew I HAD to wear it right away! A-listers like Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett and Kate Hudson (one of my personal best dressed’s of the night) were all wearing some hue of a shiny, glamorous metallic. But, who says the trend has to be saved for black tie events like the Academy Awards? This top is casual metallic heaven!! It feels like you’re wearing a t-shirt with the grey cotton that has a hint of glitter to it, but it is the faux leather rose gold sleeves that really MAKE the top. I also love the black collar lining. It is something so simple, but it just wouldn’t be as good without it. I wore it with my favorite “legging pants” as I like to call them. A simple cuff at the bottom instantly makes these stylish! LADIES- DO NOT TUCK YOUR PANTS INTO BOOTIES IF THE LEGS ARE GOING TO BE BUNCHY!!!! This is {clearly} a huge pet peeve of mine, and it just does not look good. Give your skinnies & booties the polished look by either cuffing them once or doing a tiny roll a couple of times. These happen to be my favorite booties of all time and they really look fabulous with anything and everything. It doesn’t hurt that they give you the comfort of a flat, but the confidence of a heel. Since I was going for the less is more appearance, I kept my accessories to a major minimum. The bracelet I am wearing is actually a necklace, but works great as both and has all sorts of wonderful metallic colors in there that really compliment my outfit. Finally, one of the most important factors with such a low key outfit is that {unless you’re just running to Target} you’ve got to have your hair/makeup looking fabulous! You can still give your hair that tousled bed head look, but make sure it isn’t REALLY bed head. I love a bold smoky eye with this because it really plays up such a simple outfit. This is a hot look that can be worn in the daytime or perfect for dinner or a night out! No matter where it is worn, you will look so chic and like you didn’t even try!
