Relaxed

Sunnies: Oakley | Necklace: Express (option, option) | Bag: Tory Burch (budget option) | Top: Old Navy | Watch: La Mer (option) | Bottoms: Express (option) | Shoes: Express (option)

This outfit is as relaxed as it gets. I mentioned these slip ons on Instagram. Express was having an additional 40% off sale stuff, and I had some reward dollars to use as well, making these sneaks $22. I really wanted to try the Sam Edelman version, but didn't want to pay that much on another pair of slip ons that I was not sure if I would wear as much as my leopard pair. For $22, they were worth the try. I must say that I was impressed by them. I was worried that they would look and feel and smell cheap, but I feel like they're just as good as my leopard pair. 

I will say that the dolman sleeves in combination with these relaxed fit boyfriend jeans made me feel a bit shapeless and masculine (schoolboy-ish, really), so I switched to my favorite pair of distressed skinnies and that helped bring sexy back to this look.

  3. Oooh, that is a really cute top from Old Navy!! What a perfect casual Friday look with the black slip ons and skinnies. I love that watch, too! I have been thinking about getting a watch with a black band- that style is really cute.

    1. I ended up paying like $10 for this watch on piperlime (from about $100) because of gap rewards. Makes me love it more! And it's nice that it's a watch and a bracelet all in one! You know I love multitasking!

  6. I am loving those shoe! Didn't think I would! For now, I'll just have to live vicariously through you and enjoy watching how you style them :-) Although I believe I've seen a knock-off pair at Target...?? But I do wonder how often I'd wear them. Love the overall look today!!

    1. I have heard mixed reviews about the Target version- that they're stiff and cheap and uncomfy. Which is what I feared for this Express pair because frankly, Express doesn't specialize in shoes, you know? But they work for my purposes. We shall see how much I wear them! Hopefully at least enough to justify the $22 price tag! :)
