Shopping till you drop in Style

I know we've all been tempted. It's finally the weekend, time to shop with a friend or alone which ends up in lunch and maybe movies by the time the day ends. We all have those, yes? Those are usually the best days. This is in no way an excuse to leave the house looking a hot mess. I'm looking at you, person who left the house is thorn jeans, hair in a knitted beret and no make-up. Yes, you.

The best is to find an outfit that will last you all day according to your style, that it's comfortable and perfect for the post-shopping activities.

The Casual Shopper. Loves jeans, comfortable sweaters, a pop of color and a bag that lets you use both your hands to shop. Wedges are a great replacement to sneakers or flats because they tend to be comfortable. This outfit also carries you to either meet the boyfriend for a casual dinner after you've just scored some awesome jewelry on sale.

  1. I love the trendy and the ladylike outfits! I especially love the fact that you always include the perfect nail-polish for each outfit - a tiny detail many people seem to miss. :) I love the stocking and the boots from the trendy, and the yellow from the ladylike... oh-my-goodness-that-is-so-amazing! But not the flats, coz I'm short, so I totally agree with you on the wedges from the casual shopper outfit. Love the purple too!
    all these are sooo pretty... thx for giving me new inspirations! :D

  2. loving all these looks! i would wear em all! xoxoxox

  3. I have a fascination with my nails, I've always had so I always encourage the nail polish. :) Flats do suck when you're short but sometimes after a week of wearing heels I welcome my flats with open arms :)
