#OOTD: Keepin’ It Casual
I’ve come along way from my earlier, experimental days with fashion. Lately, I’m all about utility, function, and comfort. I want to wear outfits that are versatile: they can work in both the office and outside of it. They make sense on the weekdays and the weekends. When shopping for new pieces, I look for three key elements: it’s a basic, it’s versatile, and it’s comfy.
One of my favorite go-to outfits is a strong black boot (mine are from Zara), paired with my brown fedora-esque Anthropologie hat, a plain gray (or white) tee, black blazer, and light-wash jeans.
I would feel totally comfortable wearing this to the office, but I also wore a similar outfit on a day when I worked from home out of a local coffee shop. I could wear this on the weekend when all I’m planning to do is meet a girlfriend at the Angelika Film Center in SoHo or if I’m planning to re-read the entire Harry Potter series on my living room couch.
When I began this blog, I had a series called “Intern Style” (because at the time, I was an intern). In the interest of exploring how my style has changed since the conception of this site (’09, I believe?), I’m going to be reviving the series.
