A Casual Day with Me! (OOTD)

Hello everyone, happy first day of October! I posted a photo on Instagram the other day of a very casual OOTD, what my childhood was like growing up, and how that has affected my fashion sense now as a 22 year old. It was a very brief post, but I wanted to dive into that a little more in a blog post! Being surrounded by a beachy environment as a kid and growing up with lots of surfers and skaters, my fashion sense was definitely influenced. My style has always been a good mix between feminine and edgy but when I was young, I was a MAJOR tomboy. Keep reading for full outfit details!

I love my fancy outfits, done up hair and detailed makeup as much as the next fashion lover, but you won’t find me wearing that on the regular. My usual look is a t-shirt usually tucked into some ripped jeans and some tennis shoes. I really love accessorizing with simple looks like these, so I’ll throw on a long necklace or even a dainty one if I’m feeling extra minimalistic. Sometimes it’s the smallest details that can throw an outfit together!

The main focus of this OOTD is my new Vans. I’ve had countless pairs of Vans throughout the years. From black high tops to checkered slip ons, to their classic black pair like these. I partly wore a lot of vans because they matched with my school uniform when I was younger. Going to private Christian schools my entire childhood, the dress code was always very strict but Vans were always a good way to style your uniform and try to be a little different in a sea of identical clothing. I always find it funny that I’m so into fashion considering I didn’t have many options except plaid skirts and collared shirts for the majority of my life.

I purchased this simple and flowy white tee from Nordstrom a couple months ago and I’ve been living with it. Simple shirts like these are great for layering under spaghetti strap tops or even dresses. I love that that specific trend has come full circle and is popular again! These ripped jeans are seriously some of the comfiest I’ve ever owned and I love the rugged bottoms and where they fall on my legs. I prefer jeans with holes any day over regular denim. I got the jeans and the long rock necklace at a little shop called Melrose in the O.C. (which is where I buy the majority of my clothes nowadays, LOL). Of course, I purchased my classic black Vans at a Vans shoe store. I’ve been wearing these nonstop with any outfit I can even though they’ve taken a couple days to break in. I’ve also been obsessing over my checkered phone case, which I got from Wildflower online. It’s been extremely protective (I’m prone to always dropping my phone) while also very in style which is at times hard to find in a phone case! I’d definitely recommend the brand!

I hope you guys enjoyed another OOTD! I know I personally enjoy seeing a more casual side of some of my favorite YouTubers or bloggers. Let me know what you think of this simple look or if you have a favorite basic piece! Sometimes buying the most minimal pieces can be a great asset to your wardrobe, so don’t forget to pick up some tees or simple tank tops the next time you’re out shopping! See you guys in the next one!

  1. Your style is very similar to mine – simple but cute at the same time. I love the Vans – I really need to buy a pair because they are meant to be so comfy! At the moment I live in converse and Nike trainers but both are well-worn. xx
