outfit post: Casual + Effect

Somebody take me on a picnic!
 I almost didn't do an outfit post with this outfit- I had deemed it too casual. Totally got up for a day of yard work and errands, and am unimpressed by said outfit's lack of glamour. But thinking about it, this is what I wear when no-one's watching, so thought maybe I'd share it with you all anyways. Note the chronic use of red-black and white- one of my favorite color combinations and the now signature Citizen use of mixed prints. Have a great weekend, peeps!
Now Wearing:
  • cotton polka dot kerchief
  • white heart sunglasses
  • hand-me down red print top
  • d.i.y. t-shirt shrug
  • vinyl cuff (made from a recyclced record)
  • thrifted shorts
  • red converse

We all have "casual outfit days". I think you look super cute and I love the black, white and red combo!

You are adorable, even on casual days. If this is casual for you, then what I'm wearing right now are considered PJs, lol!

This outfit may be casual but it certainly is stylish. Nice touches!

Elissa said...

I'm really glad you post your "casual outfit days." We all have 'em. Mine include shorts and ancient tee shirts and are not nearly as becoming as yours. You look easy and happy and comfortable and true to who you are. And that's what personal style is all about.

I LOVE that top and I like it when other's post their everyday look, cause i don't really do much outside of the home (as in a real job ;) so most of my looks are everyday :)
I still see The Rosebud , and she is so freaking adorable :)
Love,
Reeves

That darling scarf and red chucks are totally outfit post worthy!

Terri said...

Sweet print on the top. Looking totally comfortable. And after my month of red & black, I think it's my new favorite color combination.

That red print is so pretty! Nice to see such a casual side of our dear old Bella! :))

You look cool and ready for a day out in nature or in a natural concrete city. Love the red, specially those red chucks!
Have a great week,

Fabienne Jach said...

I'll take you on a picnic! You're so cute!!! I did a ton of gardening yesterday and actually put a little thought into not looking like a total grub. Lol!

made-to-travel.com said...

Omigosh even your causal running around outfit has so much personality and attitude! So funny how you were not even going to post. I would picnic with you any day of the week, Bella. Love a lady rocking converse! I never wear sneakers, but I totally love them w/ this kind of edge.

Stacy said...

This outfit is fabulous. I would wear any or all of these pieces, alone or together. Great style!! Glad I found your blog.
