STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Practical Fashion

If you follow my posts, you know that I am a fan of the minimal fashion look. I like things simple for an everyday look. To me, it makes dressing up for special occasions, part of what makes them special occasions. Here again is another simple, yet fabulous look that I was drawn to.

This Fashionista got my attention in all the chaos of tourists at Millennium Park. It was simple, but It made my fashion indicator light up. I thought it was such a cute summer outfit to be walking around the city in while hanging with friends. Comfy, cute and practical, and right on trend with the white Converse, which I have blogged about in a previous post.

I have expressed my love for keeping clothes comfy, yet still fashion-forward. This is the kind of outfit that I would feel comfortable walking around on a summer day in. It is light and breezy, and the shoes are perfect for walking around the city. The sweater tied around the waist gives the outfit a little flare, but it is also practical in case you would like a little more layers if you get chilly. The drawstring backpack adds to that sporty feel of the outfit, but is also a great way to carry things and not have your bag get in the way.
