OOTD: Casual Chic

duster coat white 1

Casual chic. Isn’t that just fashion-speak forΒ ‘basic’? And is it me or do white coats always look medical?

Who else gets that from white coats? This outfit was giving me serious doctor vibes…

So casual chic…You can just tell I had run out of titles. Can someone link me to a an OOTD title generator if one exists 😦 ???

But what’s is chic though? It’s the most commonly used term on blogs and magazines these days.

Effortless chic. Casual chic. Sexy chic. Flawless chic. Thot chic…????

Like saying someone looks chic just means they wearing ripped jeans and a t-shirt but they still look too cool for school. And as easy as it sounds, only a few people can manage to pull that off. For years Kate Moss had me fooled. I thought all I needed was some ripped jeans, a tee with a few holes in it and some raggedy boots. Nah. I tried it but I flopped like Meek Mill’s comeback.

But seriously, a lot of times we actually look our best when we’re dressed down AND chic. I gave dressing up for a ‘blog outfit’ a miss last week and just took these pictures on our way out.Β Even though my version of dressing down will sometimes involve heels because my height situation means I just can’t feel cool without them.

What are your ultimate closet go-to items for when you can’t be bothered to put on a show?

I would take my skinny jeans, a duster coat, cami top/t-shirt and barely there heels any day.

What does ‘chic’ mean to you?

PS: This bag is one of my finds from my vintage hunt last week. I told you I found gold that day!
