casual--not frumpy!

We've all been there--victims of the Casual-Frumpy epidemic.  But, no more!  There are so many ways to be comfortable and look stylish at the same time.
  
Add a button-up under a sweater,
mix in some fun jewelry,
opt for colored jeans,
wear a bold print,
or pair a simple sweatshirt with chic boots!

Taking even a few preventative measures will surely save you from this terrifying epidemic. ;)

  3. Love this because I like to be casual but I still want to look stylish and sometimes have a hard time combining the two.

  4. Great tips! Fit is important also! I love how your clothes are fitted but not at all tight or constricting. Even your sweatshirt is a long way from being too oversized! You look great as always!

  6. Love the first look! And wearing a hoodie with skinny jeans and boots is so much cuter than just a sweatshirt and sneakers!

  12. I always love your outfits but your MSU outfit has to be one of my favorites. Go Green!! As an MSU alum, I have a ton of sweatshirts and t shirts and have yet to find a way to wear them fashionably. Thank you for the inspiration!!
