"Fashion should be fun." We've all heard this time and time again. 
Well I don't know about you, but when I hear this, I think of people like Anna Dello Russo, who are absolutely fabulous and have fun with fashion. Unfortunately, most of Anna's looks I would never step out of my house in, they aren't "wearable". 
When I turn that phrase into something more realistic to my everyday, I think of dressing down the most glam pieces in my wardrobe. 
This feather skirt, I last wore HERE, I wore for a night out. 
It's a piece I love, so I decided to take it for a spin for a lunch date. 
I made the feathers more wearable by adding a basic tee, flats and the fool-proof denim jacket.
I challenge you to find a glam piece from your closet, and see how you can style it to achieve a daytime look.

My slow progression into cut-offs

Jacket-Anthropologie . Shorts-Levi's . Shoes-Burberry

These Levi cut-offs have been a wardrobe staple since I bought them 2 years ago.
What makes them them so perfect? 
They are short but baggy, and the distressing on them is perfect. 
Pockets peaking out the bottom is also a necessity for cool cut-offs.
Adding tights to cut-offs is not always a look I'm into. 
The look needs to remain clean, effortless and a bit dressed down to avoid looking like a big 'ol mess.
I think a polished loafer and a crisp button down are perfect pieces to make the look clean and modern. 

***another tip...avoid shiny tights and stick with opaque.

Unbutton from the bottom

Following yesterdays WhoWhatWear post, I took one of my favorite button-downs,
 and applied this seasons newest trend and unbuttoned from the bottom.
I have never been a big fan of button-downs, they just always seemed stuffy to me. 
But wearing them like this has completely changed my view. 
Unbuttoning from the bottom creates an easy, sexy vibe that I can definitely get into. 
Plus, I just love finding new ways to style old favorites.

As I've said in earlier posts, I'm all about ease and comfort this Spring/Summer, so naturally I am loving the wide trouser. I bought this pair from Zara, and honestly, they're all I want to wear.
I love that we no longer have to sacrifice style for comfort.
These pants are so versatile. 
They look great with a fitted crop or a loose blouse for a more flowing look.
I'm on board, are you?
