CASUAL FRIDAY & BASICS

The Alma Chronicle | Casual Outfits

I love these casual Friday posts!! I was just complaining to a friend that I barely have time during the week to look as glam as I’d like because, work. However, I always feel like a new person come the weekend because I get to dress up, wear make-up and maybe even make an appearance at one or two events.

I’ve always preached the importance of basics in any stylish girl’s wardrobe, that I probably sound like a broken record now. However, I get questions from a lot of people asking for tips on how to revamp their wardrobe or figure out their personal style and I always suggest they start with the basics.

They are the foundation on which every outfit is built, I sometimes liken it to building a house. Can you build one without a foundation? I don’t think so.

However, your basics don’t necessarily have to be boring. For example, if the plain ol’ blue denim is outplayed for you, change it up by investing in same style but in a different colour. Personally, I swear by the mom’s jeans and I own them in the traditional blue, white (for the days I want to look like I put in an effort) and pink (for my more playful days). The trick is to invest in pieces that compliment and highlight your 3 top moods.

Bodysuits are a good alternative to the regular t-shirt. Not only are they trendy right now, but also super chic and sexy. Always opt for a style that is most flattering for your body type. I love a good low neck because why not show off one of my favorite assets? #sideeye

I’ve paired this look with a classic heel sandals in camouflage, my favorite bucket handbag and a printed Ed hardy hat.

What are some pieces in your closet you cannot live without? Please leave a comment below!

Till next time,

Have a great weekend!

  • “I often make the mistake of thinking that something that is obvious to me is just as obvious to everyone else” - This is exactly how I feel when I hear some women say things like “I’m not a feminist because I don’t hate men”. I’ll be the first to admit that I have previously dismissed or cancelled such women as I don’t see or understand how one will ever equate the fight for equal rights in the society to love/hatred for men. It’s no longer enough or acceptable to be ignorant about societal issues. It’s time to pick up a book, have conversations & enlighten your mind. But also, I have decided that instead of dismissing such opinions, I’ll be more open to having these conversations, with women and men alike, because truthfully, of what use is it for only a select few to be fully informed in a fight? #LetsTalk // P.S To get 15% off @danielwellington site, use my code “AlmaChronic” 😊#danielwellington // 📸: @moflave
  • Can’t believe I’ve had my platform #TheAlmaChronicle for 3 years!!! It’s so exciting that what started as a need to prove to myself that I could do something without depending on someone else, has grown over the years and taught me so much about life, patience, values, etc etc. I remember staying up at night learning the basics of coding so I could tweak a theme template and publishing my first post from @folabss_ house after realising I had been duped (long story 😭). I’ve poured a lot of myself into this platform and I’m so grateful for everyone that supports it! We’re growing together 👭👫💕💕 #TheAlmaChronicle
  • Gave wristwatches a break and fuelled my addiction for bracelets, but this duo from @danielwellington is pretty 👌🏾, lightweight and stylish. Great addition to my arm candy collection // To get 15% off @danielwellington site, use my code “AlmaChronic” 😉 #danielwellington
  • Thank you guys for all the birthday wishes! Turning 25 wasn’t just a number for me, I feel as though I’m getting a fresh start at figuring life out without the pressure and all my layers of internal doubt and anxiety. I can’t wait to experience all the amazing things that come with this age! 💕💕💕
  • A birthday girl, a babe! Used to be so scared of getting older, but I think 25 looks good on me! 🥂🎂💃🏽 #CapricornSeason
  • 2018, the year we stop covering up to avoid side talks because we’re a little more endowed. Everyone will be fine, yes? 🌸 // 👙: @hm, 🕶: @asos
