Some days require things to be a little more casual.  Effortless pieces, comfortable flats, air dried waves and a bit of luxe does the trick to be casual, comfortable and quick and easy.  Especially on dreary February days a little comfort goes a long way, lucky for me I have the perfect piece the mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt ($28).  It was one of my picks for things to buy in February (see here) for a reason.

Besides it being super comfy it has a chiffon trim that allows you get the layered look without the bulk.  The cropped sleeves and textured fabric also take this into cute top territory instead of sloppy sweatshirt.  Chic sweatshirts have definitely been something I can get behind (as seen here and here!).

Leopard Flats and Grey for Days

Leopard Flats and Gray for Days

February is a tough month to dress for.  Kinda over all those wintery pieces but it’s not quite spring yet.  The perfect way to combat that is introducing the soft shades pallet into the mix.  Grays, whites, blush, nudes and the like are great transitional colors.  Try going chromatic by sticking in the same family and breaking it up with some texture (like the chiffon trim and fabric of the mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt).  I could enter a witty 50 shades of Grey pun here, but you get the idea…

Keep it casual with some flats like these mark. Hit The Spot Flats (who even have gray in the leopard spots!).  Truth:  these are the MOST comfortable flats I’ve ever worn, EVER!  And they look super cute on so win win!  Follow it up with some sparkle, a baby pink lip, and casual waves.  I let my hair air dry after I ran a bit of mark. Curl Commander Gel through my hair to give it a little texture.  Perfect look for those running late days, a quick and easy look from head to toe!
