I am not sure about you, but for me, extravagant birthday parties are a thing of the past. As much as I wish that I could still have a princess themed tea party, I have evolved to enjoy a much more relaxed style of celebration. While I still appreciate a lavish birthday soiree, I find myself relishing in a laid-back day filled with endless laughs. Whether you are decked out in diamonds and pearls or sweaty from the gym, the only important thing is spending your special day with the people who matter most.
I ran into this casual, yet stylish Fashionista at a mutual friend’s backyard birthday party this past weekend. At first glance, I had deemed this outfit simple: a solid white tee, denim shorts and sneakers. However, after close inspection, it was clear that it was the details that made the statement for her ensemble.
What initially caught my eye were her shorts. While they appear to be the plain light washed denim shorts that every other college student has, what makes hers unique is that there is a faded white Aztec print on them. Complementing her shorts, she completes the look with a plain white tee and the always popular Converse All-Stars.
Personally, I tend to stay away from accessories. I fear committing a fashion faux pas of wearing too many disjointed pieces or something that’s too minimal and insignificant. Clearly, this Fashionista knows what she is doing because her addition of accessories was done impeccably. I absolutely love how she stuck with the Aztec theme by adding a yellow and cream geometric necklace. The muted colors reinforce the simplistic feel of the look while the triangle shape allows the necklace to be a statement piece all on its own. Lastly, no ensemble is complete without a pop of color. This Fashionista incorporated a teal bandana as a trendy hair accessory. Against the contrast of her blonde hair, it was the ideal placement for a bold pop of color. Her headband topped off her stylish getup just like the cherry on a birthday sundae: not too distracting, yet equally as important.
One Simple Change: Simply replace the white shirt with a rocker tee to transition this look into the perfect concert outfit.
