casual basics


Last post I shared with you a basic, professional look which would be perfect for the office or a job interview. Here is a much more causal take on the same outfit. Just a minor jacket change and the addition of my leather ball cap make it way more appropriate for stealing some sunshine on a patio than the 9-5!


When you build your wardrobe with classic pieces you can mix and match to create very different looks easily. The hat gives a more sporty look, which goes with the more relaxed cut of these dress pants. The leather and neutral pallet keeps things simple even with a few different styles thrown in.


For some reason I have the whole weekend off (!!!!!) so I will be enjoying many more causal looks over the next few days. Oh and today is the anniversary of my move to Vancouver – been here for 4 years now.
