Outfit of the Day : Casual & Chic


“I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a women’s outfit.” – Michael Kors

Couldn’t of said it better myself. Seriously, I think ANY outfit can be dressed up with a cute statement necklace, layered bracelets, or the perfect handbag.

I’m also a firm believer that putting a little extra effort into your outfit each and every day can help you to have a better, and more enjoyable day! This is why I have decided to begin sharing my #OOTD, or Outfit of the Day.

The weather outside has begun to get colder and I’ve been looking for different ways to layer up without necessarily wearing a jacket.IMG_3048

On days like yesterday, when it was about 55 degrees outside and slightly sunny, I was able to wear a turtleneck shirt and a poncho. Both of these layers are lightweight but offered me just the right amount of warmth.

To accessorize, I chose a simple adjustable chain gold necklace. I think the gold in the necklace really compliments the gold on my bag, and is simple enough so that it doesn’t clash with the pattern of the poncho.

This was the perfect outfit for a day spent walking around Providence and getting lunch with my boyfriend. We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and reading inside of the Athenaeum – a breathtakingly beautiful little library perfect for book nerds like me!
