OUTFiT | Casual Urban Wear

Hello, everyone!

Hope you all are enjoying your holiday weekend the same way I am enjoying mine. No, I don't have 3 days off. But I am thankful for just 2 even if my weekend was packed. 

So, tagged as "important" in my schedule is an invite for the 2nd branch opening of my best friend's pet shop, The Barking Zoo (will be featuring this awesome story soon so, hope you all stay tune). We girls know too well  that in social occasions, the first question that pops in our head is "What will I wear?". I am proud to say that it didn't take me too long this time to decide what to put on. In a bustling city where getting your hands dirty is usual and public transport is the main means of getting around, it is key to wear comfy clothing. I don't want to trade comfort over style. But can we be stylish and comfy at the same time? The answer is a resounding, YES!


Keeping the green theme in mind, I opted to put together what I call my casual urban wear so I can move around easily and extend help to the staff. And boy! That was a good decision for when I got to the pet store, the place was already packed with cute furballs!

Street Style

I've generously accessorized this simple getup with spiked, multicolored bracelets, a bangle and a layered neckpiece. These accents my already plain ensemble. Comfortable, practical pieces and a pair of good old sneakers, ballet flats, flip flops and the like defines the casual urban wear for me.
