While I love dressing up just as much as the next girl, I’m most myself in casual clothes. Now, that’s not code word for sloppy. I believe you can absolutely look stylish and feel good about the way you look in a casual outfit.
My life as a preschool teacher lends itself to a more casual work look. Let’s face it, we are painting, making music and sitting on the floor for most of the day. I also assist in gym. It’s kind of hard to do that in a skirt.
My go to sources for trendy casual clothes that won’t break the bank are GAP, Old Navy, Target, Forever 21 and TJ Maxx. Their prices, sales and selection simply cannot be beat.
So, without further ado, I bring you my favorite casual looks of 2014…
I love this plaid shirt from Target. I get so many compliments on it. I almost always pair it with a fun statement necklace like this one from Wrist Soirée to dress it up. My Ugg boots are the ultimate in comfort and casual.
For the above look I paired a buffalo plaid shirt from Forever 21 and a jewels sweater from Loft with black skinny jeans and tall black boots.
I got this sweater from GAP last year and I’ve worn it to death. I’ve seen a similar one recycled at Old Navy this year. Here I wore it with jeans and my new wedge booties from TJ Maxx. I sometimes wear it with a blue and white gingham shirt underneath.
And for my final favorite casual look of 2014, I paired the unexpected, a really amazing statement necklace with a super casual look of Forever 21 sweatshirt, Old Navy skinny jeans and printed pointed teo flats from Banana Republic. I hope you enjoyed taking a peek into my favorite casual looks from the past year!
