Keep It Casual



This week has been an insanely busy one, getting ready for my son's 5th birthday.  Between frosting cupcakes for his class, party planning & wrapping presents, I've been running around like crazy.  So I've pretty much been living in a ponytail, easy layers & comfy flats.  Throwing on a bright blazer with jeans & a tee is, in my opinion, the easiest way to add polish to casual basics.  And this infinity scarf is my new favorite accessory since the neutral colors go with everything...plus, we all know I'm a sucker for stripes!





What I'm wearing:
J. Crew tee (similar; 20% off with code SUNNY), H&M blazer (similar here or here), c/o Brianne Faye scarf (on sale here), Forever 21 jeans (here), Old Navy oxfords (similar here or here), Pulicati tote (major clearance find at TJ Maxx; similar), Michael Kors watch (similar), Bracelets: c/o Stella & Dot (here) & Ann Taylor (similar here or here), Etsy ring (here), Ralph Lauren sunnies, Lips: L'Oreal Colour Caresse Cotton Pink, Nails: Revlon Cafe Pink + Essie Shine of the Times
