During the week I dress up for work and for events in the evenings, but most weekends I tend to throw on more casual clothes, as I'm usually doing housework or running errands. I love wearing skirts and dresses, and tend to gravitate toward those pieces more often, but I assure you, I DO own a pair of jeans and a few t-shirts! 

That being said, I thought it would be nice to do a post showing how I transition a causal at-home outfit for going out for brunch or coffee with friends. And good timing for this, because I just received two great accessory pieces from a giveaway that I won on lovely Rachel's blog! (Rachel the Hat)

The Before: 

Plain tee from Garage, Cheap Monday jeans (which I got at a thrift store for $10), and Sweet Holic flats.

The After:

Earrings and bracelet from Aldo. Joe Fresh lipstick in Melon.

Dorothy Perkins bag from Rachel's giveaway.

Dorothy Perkins infinity scarf from the giveaway.

I have to say that this is the first infinity scarf I've ever owned. I wasn't sure if it was very "me", but now that I've worn it, I'm pretty sure that it is going to become my go-to scarf in the fall. So easy to put on, and  so cute!

How do you transition a casual outfit? What accessories do you consider to be essential pieces? 


  1. For me, I usually try heels and a cute sweater. But I love this!


    1. I tend to mix it up, and this is fairly casual for me, and not something I wear often, but I tried it out and liked it!
