Polished Casual



A cargo jacket is definitely one of my closet essentials - it's perfect for dressing down a floral skirt or sequin mini and is the ideal lightweight topper for a simple tee & shorts.  I decided to give mine a dose of polish by pairing it with an all-white palette + metallic accents.  The crisp button-down and cropped skinnies are still casual & comfy, but elevate it enough to wear out to dinner with friends.  Another must-have of mine for the warmer months is a dainty necklace like this new favorite...it's an everyday piece you can wear even on the hottest days without feeling restricted or weighed down.






What I'm wearing:
Old Navy shirt (on sale here), Rubbish jacket (here or similar here and here), Mossimo jeans (similar here or here), Guess heels c/o TJ Maxx (similar here or here), Gorjana necklace c/o Lilac Bijoux (here), Mango bag (similar), Bracelets: Vintage (similar) & Forever 21 (here), Etsy ring (here), Dockers aviators (similar), Nails: Essie ClamBake, Lips: Maybelline ColorSensational Coral Crush

I love this look! I have been on the hunt for a utility jacket for months and I still haven't found one. Unfortunately it's too hot for me to wear one now so it will have to wait until next winter!

Great pieces here. I love how easily this outfit can be a super casual day outfit just by changing the shoes and then swapping them with heels for a dressier feel.
