Casual Wear: Leggings & Cardi For Fall *Stylo 211


Casual wear emphasizes comfort and personal expression, that is why it has become one of my favorite styles for the weekend.

I think we all dress casual at some point, whether it is after work or on the weekends. I have realized I am now more inclined to wear a casual outfit than before, unless I am attending an event.

This is the outfit I wore yesterday. I got up real early to run errands and besides being exhausted, I knew that I was going to be out most of the day, therefore I wanted to wear something as comfy as PJ’s and as cozy as a robe. But since I can’t leave the house wearing neither of them, I needed to find something comfortable to wear, so I wore this cardi a family member gave me a few days ago. I sooo love wearing it because it’s so soft and slouchy…ah!

I decided to add cotton leggings, a loose-fit tee, a messenger and faux suede booties. And to add glam to the whole look, I added a black floppy hat and a dark burgundy lipstick.

Sometimes you need to give your body a break and go ahead and dress down. This doesn’t mean you have to leave your house looking bummy. You can always add some key elements to add glam to your look; that’s the key.  😉

Bright Colors With Leopard Print * Stylo 190♥

Bright colors are perfect for Summer! I love pairing different bright colors all in one outfit, just like I did for this Stylo.

I decided to combine royal blue with bright yellow and mint green, adding leopard print leggings.

I usually don’t wear leopard print in the summertime, but I wanted to wear these pair of leggings because they are so comfortable and I was looking for a comfy outfit to wear, being that I was going to PA and I had to drive for an hour and a half.

Regarding the Makeup, I chose to pair lavender eyeshadows with a peachy lipstick. It is a very subtle makeup, perfect for a summery afternoon.

I also chose to wear minimal gold accessories being that the leopard print leggings were already saying too much.

I think this is a nice way to incorporate animal print to a summer look!  😉

Red And White With Houndstooth * Stylo 174♥

Red and White is an unusual combo for me, since I don’t own many garments in red, but I honestly tried it this weekend and I loved it! ♥

As you can see, I am wearing my favorite pair of houndstooth leggings, which I have previously paired with other colors like black, white, royal blue and mint, but never with red before…

The cable knit long cardi I am wearing is an exquisite vintage piece which is as old as I am. It was a gift from my father to my mother the same day I was born. My mother gave it to me and it has been in my closet ever since. It features wooden buttons and a sash by the waist. I only wear it for special occasions.

I chose to add white booties and a winter white snood as well as a black crossbody.

It was snowing on Saturday, so that’s why I added a snood and some cute finger-less gloves.

I love how this Stylo turned out, and with it, I have learned that we must get out of our comfort zone and experiment with different color combos, always willing to try something new.

Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend and that you are all ready for a new and adventurous week ahead!  😉  🙂  😉

50 Shades Of Red * Stylo 164♥

I named this Stylo 50 Shades of Red because red is associated with Love and Christmas. Also with energy, strength, power and determination.

I actually didn’t plan ahead this outfit. I needed to be at a Holiday Event at 9 am in the morning on Saturday, plus I was going Xmas shopping after that, so I wanted to wear a comfy outfit but stylish at the same time, so I chose to wear regular black leggings along with a loose tee and a blazer.

I figured the leggings with the tee would give me the comfort I needed, and the blazer would add enough elegance not to look too dressed down.

I also added brown riding boots to keep my feet warm and also to feel comfortable while I was standing up for hours.

As you can see, I am wearing a blazer in oxblood, as well as a furry berét in a lighter burgundy (kind of fuchsia) and a super bright red lipstick.

My earrings also feature some bright red stones in it…very festive! They are, by the way, available at my shop for only $4!!! <<<Click Here >>>

I definitely loved this Stylo very much! I felt warm and comfy, but most importantly, I felt beautiful ♥

Dark Brown * Stylo 156♥

Dark Brown is one of the main iconic fall colors, if not the number one color for autumn.

I love dark brown paired with neutrals as well as with some other bright colors. But this time I chose to wear basically all brown, and just adding my shoes and my bag in beige.

I think beige and brown is such a safe combination, but as you all know me, I always have to add a little bit of edginess to my outfits, so I chose to wear these brown leggings with gold trims, matching the gold buttons on my bag, as well as my accessories.

I also chose to wear this polka dot shirt, which is actually two sizes bigger than my actual one…I guess I made a mistake when I bought it, and I realized yesterday when I put it on.

But as I say in my video, it kind of worked out, because I was in a mood for something comfortable, and the shirt definitely gave me the room I needed to be able to breathe comfortably.

I added just a bit of color, by incorporating some of the jewelry I sell, like my Colorful Charm Bracelet and my Yellow/Mint Drop Earrings, both available at my shop.
