Don't you just love those words? Umm, or nah?
I'm sure I'm not the only girl in the world (Hi Rihanna!) who cringes when she hears "I'm having a get together..." followed by a string of non-clarifying words. Honestly folks, I don't think anyone knows what a "get together" is.
In the cooler months, you're more likely to hear this term, which refers to a small gathering of people, because, let's face it, no one likes to go out in the cold and getting a bunch of friends to cram together in someone's living room or a tiny NYC apartment is the next best thing.
For these events, I usually like to balance casual with chic, especially if I don't know the crowd. For this particular get together, I chose to wear my cognac booties. Booties are a great option because you can play around with the heel height and style to keep it casual, but still add a little height and dimension.
Coco Note: I would stick to a 2-3 inch heel for a casual get together. Lace-up combat style booties are perfect because they have just enough of a heel, but have a worn-in, casual look. If you know it's going to be more of a party, you can go for a higher heel or a dressier finish or type, like a black leather stiletto or pointed toe boot.
I've surprisingly found myself reaching for blue jeans lately. I haven't purchased a pair of adult-sized blue jeans in ages, so I grabbed a few pairs from Rainbow the other day. This medium-wash pair has a slightly high waist and was only $20!
Coco Note: Yes, I usually buy my jeans in the kids section. Let me be great.
Since it was cooler out and the jeans had a higher waist than usual, I took the chance to wear this slightly cropped crewneck from H&M! The white cotton sweatshirt is so soft and comfortable , and features the words "Tres Mignon Paris" across the front.
Coco Note: Tres means very in French, while Mignon can mean little or beautiful. Take your pick! ;)
For some color and to jazz up the outfit, I wore my new burgundy clutch that I got at Marshalls! The quilted pattern and gold chain add just the right amount of chic to the look and the cranberry color is perfect for the season. I also added a gold necklace that features medium-sized silver-green gems.
Another way to jazz up a casual outfit is a beatfacehoney! (Pun intended) Make up is definitely an accessory and can be used to turn a casual outfit into a more party-appropriate look!
Coco Note: Selfie. Game. Strong.
