It's been another crazy week for me with client appointments, so when I had a day off yesterday and the weather was co-operating, I decided it was the perfect time to take a trip to the local park with my Son.
This particular park has an awesome playground and splash pad, so needless to say, it was full of Moms (and a few Dad's) soaking up the fun with their kiddies, but there was one Mom that stood out.
In a good way.
I'm sure you have noticed this same woman before too (well, not the EXACT same woman unless you were at the same park as I was but the same "type of woman"). 🙂
She wan't the prettiest, the thinnest, or even the most youthful - but she did stand out because she just looked effortlessly stylish. Without looking like she was trying too hard.
She was wearing a simple tank top with a pair of black yoga pants that had some ruching details down the sides of the legs, a pair of metallic Birkenstocks, and a straw fedora hat with a ribbon around it. Oh, and she was carrying a fun floral printed tote.
Simple but stylish.
I'm willing to bet you've admired the same type of woman before, right?
The one who always looks put together and cool, and super confident in her clothing.
YOU can be that woman!
Whether it's at the park, picking up the kids from school, or running around doing your weekend shopping/errands...
You can look casually stylish without a lot of effort or looking like you're trying too hard too!
Here are some of my fave ways to do it:
- Go for a pair of fitted yoga pants/leggings with a cute longer top like a fun slightly off the shoulder style in a great colour/print or a simple tank with an open denim shirt over top.
- Make sure one of the pieces are in a fun print or "great for you" colour. Depending on your shape and what you are comfortable with will depend on whether you go for a print/colour on the bottom or top half of your body.
- If yoga pants aren't your thing, a pair of jogger/drawstring pants with a cool fitted graphic tee or printed tank is a great option as well.
- I would then add a simple chain necklace, lightweight scarf (if it's not too hot), or a cool hat (like the stylish playground Mom) as a simple "finishing" piece.
Voila! There is such a thing as Effortless Style, even on "lazy days"!
