I am so excited about this style post! I asked what kinds of future #fedandfitfashion posts you would like to see, and the results came back to fit into these main categories:

  • Everyday Wear Styling Tips
  • Athleisure
  • Transitional Pieces (like workout to brunch; work to date night)

Today's post is an everyday styling tip! This outfit is my go-to template: comfy mid-rise jeans, my FAVORITE moccasins, a simple button-up (styled), big earrings, and a slouchy shoulder bag. Today I'm showing you (with step-wise photos) how I like to take a basic button-up and turn it into a more casual look with a little more personality.

Sizing and fit: I'm wearing a small in the blouse and a 4 in the jeans. I recommend sizing down in the shoes. I normally wear an 8 in flats/tennis shoes (8.5 in close-toed heels) and have a size 7 in these. The earrings are medium weight.
