Not knowing how casual or how dressed up an outfit should be can be quite challenging. Over time I have discovered simple and easy tricks to instantly keeping a casual week end outfit looking, well too casual. I gave myself rules on what to avoid wearing when out in about, running errands, meeting for coffee or doing groceries which are the following; flip flops, hooded sweatshirts, running shoes {high tops do not count!}, yoga pants or any type of work out gear. Having this stuck in my head keeps me on my toes on staying polished and put together no matter what the occasion. Keeping the flip flops for the beach and yoga pants for actual yoga classes forces me to wear all the other pieces I have in my closet.

Easy ways to vamp up your casual outfits can be done by simply adding a blazer to denim {like I did below}, adding a silk scarf to a tank or tee, a pop of color to nails or lips, pumps with skinny denim or simply adding a structured clutch or handbag.

What ever the outing or occasion never forget your personal style or your smile. Bon week end!
