Dressing for a Casual Night With the Girls

Dressing for a Casual Night With the Girls

It seems pretty crazy to admit that August is already here. I always find this month to go by the fastest because it means that summer is coming to an end, and school is approaching us soon. My inspiration with this current look is what I am absolutely obsessed with and that is because it is super simple and easy. I’ve found myself to be very busy this summer, so this is a perfect outfit for a casual, unplanned afternoon or night with your girls.

First off, one of my favorite purchases I have made over this summer would include this Express double buckle western belt. I have found that it really pulls the whole outfit together. I love how unique it is with the double buckle, and also how easy it is to adjust to different lengths.

Since I wanted to keep this look pretty casual, I decided to add a black velvet necklace with a silver circle that complemented my black and silver belt. You also have the option to make the necklace go from a choker to a long piece, which was something that won me over when I first bought it. Another simple accessory that is perfect for something casual would include some sort of crossbody purse. I am a big fan of my Michael Kors one, but for many reasons, this type of purse is super practical and easy for you to carry around. And of course, I can’t forget to mention my favorite aviator, mirrored Ray-Ban sunglasses.

I always have the best luck with Express jeans, especially when they’re on sale! In this look, I am wearing distressed skinny jeans from, of course, Express. From my personal experiences I have found it very hard to find comfy and well-fitted jeans for my body type, considering I am only 5’2. The jeans pictured here actually turned into my favorite pair. It’s a huge plus when they actually fit my length, and where I feel comfortable enough to wear them all day and not want to go home and put on my leggings.
