You can always tell when I haven’t planned my outfit in advance, or if I’ve been out late the night before. I have a tried-and-true system for comfortable outfits that are still functional and work appropriate. I pair leggings, oftentimes a thicker, trouser-inspired legging, with a long blouse and add my tied-up flats or some heeled booties. The result is put-together enough for the office, but easy enough to throw on with no thought when I roll out of bed.

In the summer delicate details like the simple rings and necklace make it seem planned. casualcorner3View More: http://stephanieritaphoto.pass.us/celina-juneCheck out this post for the story behind my “Solo Goya” ring, which I made at the Stonybrook Fine Arts studio in JP. casualcorner5
