Easy Chic Outfit Recipe

You can not simply rush creativity. Some days it comes naturally for me and other times it's a long strenuous though-out process that usually ends up being scrapped, back to the drawing board, repeat, repeat, repeat, writer's block  and a whole conundrum of other blockage.

When this happens, what do you do?

Taking a walk around Harlem is usually the little spark I need to get some creative juices flowing and flying off the shelf.

About the outfit:

I've learned a while ago that investing in good basics, makes your life easier. I've truly worn this shirt so many times since purchasing it two years ago. It never fails to be that piece I reach for on a weekly basis. So with this shirt being, Step One in achieving that chic outfit formula we love to have on a daily basis.

Step Two, the bottoms. My denim is near and dear to my heart so as you could imagine I have that department on lock. I thrifted these high-rise denim shorts and simply frayed the edges. After several wash and dries, they fit amazing and has been another most worn Summer staple.

Step Three, the layer. So you may be over wearing this combo. However, mixing it up by adding a nice tailored vest like I did here (remember when I wore this same vest here) or a light weight cardigan can instantly take a basic look to next level chicness. 

Lastly, add amazing accessories like a nice pump, mule, faux fur hand bag (optional) and a great pair of statement earrings for a knock-out look. Outfit recipe complete!

Recently I've been incorporating more minimal pieces into my wardrobe. Partially because it really makes getting dressed in the mornings more efficient when you don't have to choose between a hundred shirts. You can always revert back to a minimal/neutral color palette to get things moving along. 

I've recently been inspired by the elegant style of french women wardrobes. They are neutral, modern, classic, tailored, easy and effortlessly chic. I love a casual outfit formula I can always repeat and still look timeless. French women style seem to have a certain "je ne sais quoi" I keep graviating towards.

I honestly can't get enough of wearing culottes (remember when I styled them here), sometimes I feel I live in them as I've worn them so much. That's when you know your money is well invested. Ha! Pairing a striped shirt with this look just seem to make since as it's a French girl staple shirt among others. I took an evening bag and tied a bandanna scarf around the strap for that lux factor with a bit of edge. I pulled the look together with a snake-print pointed flat and a minimal pair of gold earrings to finish the look.

This look was perfect for discovering new cafe's and strolling through the park. Do you like this Parisian inspired look? Let me know in the comments below.
