#OOTD Elevate Your Errand Outfit


One of my favourite things to do when I have a busy day of mundane errands ahead of me but I’d rather be home watching Pretty Little Liars in my pajamas is to elevate my mood by upping the ante on a casual outfit.


If, like most of us, you’d be out running errands in good old jeans or leggings and a t-shirt, you could put your own style-savvy spin on lazy-girl casuals without compromising on comfort. Just try this simple formula:

(1) Swap your t-shirt with a maxi top. Think about it, it’s just like your trusty old t-shirt, only longer, comfier, roomier and about 100 times more on-trend.


(2) Trade in your jeans or your basic black leggings for a pair that has an interesting detail. I love the cool, rocker vibe these shredded leggings / jeggings lend to an everyday look.


(3) Upgrade your basic ballet flats to a pair of fashion-forward yet functional pointy-toe flats, lace-up flats, edgy sneakers, preppy brogues or tasseled loafers.


(4) Throw on an additional layer – a blazer or a leather / denim jacket are always welcome. However, if you really want to score style points, make the sleeveless jacket your BFF.


(5) Don’t forget about the little details that help top off your look – a great bag to tote things around in, a watch to help manage your time better and a little pop of bling here or there for a little pick-me-up sparkle.

    It always has been a pair of jeans (hanging on my hanger, worn the previous day) and a t-shirt (preferably black) that I pick up from my wardrobe. Also, instead of a smaller bag, I opt for a big one where I could put my sunglasses, water bottle, documents and stuff. A pair of ballerinas come in handy while I leave my hair just the way it is (I have a short bob) and dash a line of kohl and some powder. I don’t even opt for my usual CC cream cause hey I am out for work, not to see someone (ignoring the fact that I could totally bump into someone I know/have been avoiding lol).

    So that’s my go-to errand running outfit :)
    Loved yours, except that those shoes don’t really look comfy :D
