A reader asked me recently to share one of my more laid-back outfits. Today, I do just that. I have a few uniforms that I can throw together quickly for a run to my neighborhood Target, a stop by my favorite corner restaurant for takeout, or an afternoon visit to Starbucks. That ensemble is always relaxed.
Tee—Banana Republic (under $10 in-store)
Sandals—J.Crew | additional colors (all on sale)
Bag—Kate Spade Saturday | option
Earrings—℅ Kendra Scott
Bangle—℅ Kendra Scott
Lip—Mac “Flat out Fabulous” lipstick, Mac “Heroine” lip pencil
Blush—NYX powder blush in mocha
A drapey tee. Crepe shorts. Slide sandals. These are staples in my laid-back style because they’re comfortable and versatile. In this outfit, I blend my favorite bold hues—orange, purple, and pink—for a fun, colorblocked spin on casual.
I never leave home without earrings. Never. I often reach for a pair of my Kendra Scott earrings because each pair I own is a standout that I can wear alone or with other pieces. The Kendra Scott Francie earrings (in pink agate) are crucial in today’s look. They add a beautiful pop and an important additional block of color.
I have my hair pulled back using a Puff Cuff (the JR. size), a clamp designed for thick, curly hair. My girl, Haley at Derby City Naturals, introduced me to the product. I love it because it securely holds my kinky hair in place without pulling at the edges. The clamp is such a relief from my usual banana clips and Goody hair bands. If your puffs and ponytails give you headaches, check out the Puff Cuff.
How did you get your ponytail like that? Are you using one or 2 puff cuffs? I will more than likely purchase.
Hey Nylse! I'm wearing one Puff Cuff JR. I created two rolls with the loose hair at the back and pinned them in place. Let me know if you get a Puff Cuff. I think I'm definitely going to get another one–the original, larger one.
Thanks. And, thanks so much for stopping by!
You look stunning! And thank you for the info re: the Puff Cuff. Never heard of it, but I'm going to buy one for my daughter right now!!
Aww thanks! You're going to love the Puff Cuff for your daughter. It comes in a few sizes now, and two of the sizes are perfect for children.
