How to Dress Up a Casual Outfit

On casual days, I still like to look put together. Even though this look is really casual, by pairing it with some lace up sandals and a lightweight jacket I’ve instantly upgraded this outfit. For finishing touches, I just throw on my favorite Balenciaga bag and I’m ready to head out the door. I’ve linked similar pieces below, so you can get this look for less. If you’re looking for more casual outfit inspiration, check out my video: CASUAL OUTFIT IDEAS! LOOK CUTE WHEN YOU’RE LAZY!
