Casual Chic | Shorts and Lace Up Gladiators

  Amazing Awesome summer-outfit-shorts-and-gladiators 2jpgHello darlings and happy Tuesday!  If you’re asking yourself “hasn’t this look already been posted here on the blog”, you’re right; It has. However, if you read the previous post about it – here – You probably saw this coming. I’ve stated that I will share a part two of this gladiator and shorts look, and why? For a couple of reasons. Stay with me now ๐Ÿ™‚

This was a good day enough to have some fun! The aftey started as an indoor fun arcade/pool party for the kids… The whole outfit, especially the pink light vest, perfectly fitted with my chaperone role!

I didn’t get in the water that day (only hubby did to keep a close eye on the small member of the  family who thinks she’s already Commandant Jacques Cousteau) but this would have pass for a pretty cool cover-up as well… ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, part one of that afternoon (indoor) transitioned to a very nice bbq at a friend’s backyard where I saw fit to get rid of the light vest and “bring the sexy back”! Ok, I’m getting ahead of myself here… Let’s just say “bring the comfortable up”. ๐Ÿ˜€

Yes, this was actually quite comfortable for enjoying that marvelous weather, the great food, and the good company!

I mentioned in my last post that casual doesn’t not necessarily have to mean or appear less desirable. Casual should just be simple, comfortable, and relax, without sacrificing style for comfort. Well, at least from a stylist and fashion blogger perspective. ๐Ÿ™‚

And like in this particular post, some well-chosen accessories, i.e. a cute necklace, a fun bracelet, a slightly contrasting purse, and some statement shoes would glam-up an otherwise “casual” outfit. –  P.S I would totally wear some cute flats or lace-up sandals (seen here) with this as well.

Now, isn’t the hat-lady forgetting her little signature piece? A FUN HAT! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I know y’all already saw that coming! ๐Ÿ˜€

All in all, as a style blogger, but more importantly as a woman, you always feel like a triple winner when you can pull off a two-in-one outfit and actually have this much fun doing it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

That been said, the funny part of the whole story is, as comfortable as I was in this outfit sans the vest that hot and humid day, and had fun shooting this look, at first I wasn’t that comfortable sharing it with the world. The dream-crashing thoughts that went trough my mind was that this look could be seen as too sexy or too revealing, especially with a curvy body like mine.

But here I am… and you know why? I love it; and I think that alone is enough for me to claim and own it!
