Style Guide: Comfy Casual

Outfit Details: H&M Faux Fur Vest, ASTR Cigarette Pants (similar), Reebok Skyscape Chase in Portrait Purple (c/o), H&M Handbag, Free People Lace Top (also adore this style from FP), Pink Slate Necklace, Sunglass Warehouse Extreme Cat Eye Style Sunglasses

Over the past weekend, I spent all day Saturday and Sunday hunting for wedding venues with my fiance. It was such a fun and exciting experience. There are, however, an overwhelming amount of traditional and non-traditional wedding venues in the tri-state area. I am in the very early stages of wedding planning, but if there's one solid piece of advice that I could offer to future or current brides, it would be to start your search online and filter out the venues that don't fit your must-have criteria. Then, make a shortlist of suitable venues. Choosing a wedding venue is the most crucial piece to the puzzle! 
 
My weekend style is definitely more relaxed compared to what I wear during the week, and since we were touring venues I needed something dressy, yet casual. To glam up my outfit I blended a long-sleeved lace top under an oversized faux fur vest. Nothing feels more chic than adding some fur (faux of course) over an ultra feminine top. To create a downtown posh-vibe, I paired these black ASTR cigarette skinny jeans with my Reebok Skyscapes. I've preached on the wow-factor of these shoes before, but I still can't get over how comfortable and soft they feel. They are unlike any pair of sneakers I've ever owned. Thus, I encourage you to snag a pair for yourself this season. 

To finish off the look, I added on these adorable cat eye sunglasses from Sunglass Warehouse. I have been searching for a pair like this since I saw a similar style on Kourtney Kardashian. Can you believe these sunnies are under $16? They complete me! There isn't an exact definition as to what constitutes a perfect casual outfit. As long as you feel comfortable, confident, and polished, that's all that matters ;).

XX,
