What Would Derria Wear?: Keep it Simple..and Chic

When it comes to What Derria Would Wear… I keep it simple… and Chic!

If you haven’t already noticed I love clothes and when it comes to styling my looks for outfit posts there are times I want to put my edgy style out there but there are also times that I keep it simple yet chic. Its really important to me to have a well rounded wardrobe. So even on my chill days I’m still stylishly chic.

As you may know I am relocating from North Carolina to Los Angeles this month and it has been very tough trying to pack up all my clothes in boxes and also in suitcases. It clear I wont have access to my clothes all at one time so I’m currently going through everything and choosing pieces that I can wear multiple ways until I get everything in the mail. Talk about stressed. I know it wont be too bad though.

Below is a look that can be worn Three different ways.

Look #1: As an oversized dress by itself with my Comme Des Garcon x Converse sneakers. (or any neutral sneaker)

Look #2: Pictured below with the dress and denim skirt layered to provide an edginess.

Look #3: Skirt tied up or draped over the denim skirt. Each look can give different vibes.

What Would Derria Wear?: Spice up your Wardrobe with a Swimsuit

Studded Sunglasses

Have you ever come across a swimsuit that you loved but didn’t want it to just be worn on pool day?

It’s important to be flexible in your wardrobe and keep an open mind. Even the trend of pajamas being worn as casual wear is a pretty dope concept especially with the prints I’ve seen and also mixing with other types of clothing. One thing that I am definitely sold on is wearing a swimsuit as a top or bodysuit within your everyday wardrobe.

There’s been plenty of times that I have come across a really cute swimsuit automatically thought about wearing it as a cute bodysuit instead. Check out my post on Frugal Shopaholics where I talk more about Swimsuit Turing Bodysuits and also so frugal and chic choices for options.

In this outfit post I’m wearing a color bar swimsuit that I absolutely love. I have a Longchamp bag that is the same print so I instantly fell in love with it, and it was under $10! Paired my new found bodysuit with a patent leather skirt from Forever 21 that was only $15. I don’t think anyone can compete with me when it comes to shopping for frugal clothing or anything frugal. My bag is one of three that was purchased from Tj Maxx a few years ago. I got one in Pink, Blue and Black. Such a convenient clutch bag.

Let’s get into these Nike Prestos, they are my favorite sneakers and they make me feel like I’m walking on air, Perfect right? Mint, Yellow, Nude and Black are all the colors I’ve purchased in the last few months. Mostly from Nordstrom online and the Nike Factory Outlet here in Charlotte, NC.

A lot of people sleep on Forever 21 but I have found some of the cutest pieces there that when people ask they don’t believe that I got them from there. My oversized denim jacket is from Forever 21 and it’s really good quality denim. It was only $35! Not too bad.  Check out more outfit details below!
