Smart Casual Outfit: Earth Tones

Today’s outfit is a splash of earthy colors, yellow and hunter green, with some black pumps. A great casual look for the office or last-minute meetups.  Yes, even for Zoom!

The pants are from H&M. They’re pretty thick and comfortable to wear since the fabric is quite dense. Make sure you’re not wearing these pants in humid weather, or you’ll have a hard time explaining to people that you did not, in fact, pee on yourself. 🤣

The top is from Thread + Supply, it’s light, and it comes with strings inside your sleeve so you can roll them up and tie them to a button on the sides. You can find similar ones here, though, not sure if they have the added sleeve strings.

For accessories, I’m wearing the Kapten & Son Campina mesh watch in rose gold.  This watch is lightweight and makes any outfit look elegant. The gold mesh warms up and compliments my skin tone, while the small face adds to the detail. Very minimalist. Me likes.

My purse is from  Karl Lagerfeld. It’s a great size to fit your laptop, makeup bag and other necessities. It was my sisters, pretty much like everything else I’m wearing today. She’s actually the one that has excellent taste in clothes, and I relish in the hand-me-downs.

The locket is from the Firefly Boutique in Maine. I went there when visiting my partner’s family. There were so many beautiful pieces I couldn’t leave without snagging one for myself!

My heels are from Calvin Klein, from Marshall’s. I miss you, Marshalls!! I can’t tell you how many times my sister and I would run to Marshall’s to talk and shop. It was such a great bonding experience. Hopefully, things will be back to normal soon enough.

They’re so beautiful, but they are not the best for grip. You will slide face first into pavement if you aren’t careful. I recommend purchasing shoes after walking so that you can get a feel for them after they swell! 

Welp! I’m off now. I want to finish my book before Christmas so that I can review it for you.

See ya!

Earth Tones Smart Casual Wear

Neutral tones, black, and grey for winter. This winter outfit is super easy to match and useful if you eat with your clothes. Who else is cleaning up their closets today huh??!🤣

The blazer is from Liz Claiborne. If you want loose fitting blazers, then she’s your gal. I like the fit since it lets me move around and doesn’t feel like I’m suffocating. For the winter, it’s great to slip on and stay warm too! It wasn’t expensive, either. I actually bought this blazer during my cater waiter days. So glad that’s over, haha. I can afford to pay for my groceries now.

Knee-high boots make me feel so confident! I don’t think they’ll ever be out of fashion. Be careful when buying ones that tie in the back. They’re great, but the straps sometimes roll, pulling the boot down. These were super inexpensive and have seen at least 3 winters, so I won’t complain. Make to measure your calf size so that your boots are tight enough to fit with pants and leggings but not too tight as to suffocate them.

Pact leggings, I love their fit, the size, everything. Since it’s cotton and organic, they don’t last like spandex, but that doesn’t matter to me. I’m happy to buy clothing that’s organic, tide-free, fair trade certified, and the list goes on!! I’m happy to invest in this brand. I also bought tops from them.

My sweater was super cheap (Amazon). I wore this once, and now it has sweat stains on it. So, if you’re going to go for this brand, be sure to buy the darker shades like brown and black.

Accessories: Kapten & Son Watch.

See ya!

Kapten and Son “Chrono Silver Steel” Watch Review

With staple pieces, a classic looking watch also follows. My most worn is from a German brand called Kapten & Son.

Price: $ 289.00 USD (It is somewhat steep, but also worth the investment for the durability “testing” I’ve put it through). Did I mention it’s unisex?

Durability: Amazing, I can slam my wrists up against the wall, my desk, break my fall on it (though I wouldn’t recommend it), and it will be alright. You can see scratches on the metal from wear, but that doesn’t show up for a while (I’ve had this watch for about a year + already and am not neurotic about taking care of my things, which I kind of should be).

Size: The dial is 40 mm, which means if you’re 5’2, and your wrist is rather small, it will cover it, for the most part, a look that’s been pretty popular. 

Look: I love wearing this for business and casual wear. The Chrono tells the time, date, and apparently a stopwatch I’ve never even tried.🥲

Side view. I love the anchor detail.

Many of you may be super high tech and wear your smartwatches, but there’s something sexy about classic-looking watches. I’m not talking about those CHONKY, CLUNKY, BEDAZZLED watches that look like rocks you’d find deep in the ocean, eesh. 

I find that this Chrono watch is super versatile; it goes great with casual and evening wear. It has a rather big face, but it just looks so polished and makes my wrist look elegant. 

-See you later!
