Polka dots, denim, and red accessories give a bit of a retro touch to the most modern of outfits.

Pin-up style – the classic, glamorous fashion, not the raunchy stuff creepy guys have stuck to their walls – is a huge influence on my personal taste. I love how it's both flattering and flirty, which means you look elegant and put-together but you also get to have a bit of fun with your clothes. Today, Who What Wear put out their spring 30-day outfit challenge for this year and the first task was to add sophistication to casual denim with polished accessories. I instantly thought of my trusty denim jacket and these fabulous cat-eye sunglasses, and bam, my outfit of the day was chosen for me. The retro shape of the glasses plus the fun polka-dot print and the denim give this casual outfit a bit of pin-up flair while still being plenty modest and modern.

If you have been reading my blog for a little while you can easily see many of my favorite style tricks in this outfit: the perfect spring layering combination of lightweight jacket + printed sweater; my adoration of slim-cut, rolled-hem pants with chic flats; and the red accessories that never let me down. It's fabulous because it's comfortable, casual, and versatile, and it's easy to add on a coat or remove a layer if the temperature so requires. Mixed prints, statement earrings, and good sunglasses never fail to make even the most basic of outfits so very fun.

Bisous,
