I've never been a jeans and t-shirt girl (unless it was a printed top and printed jeans!), so this look is my typical causal. Don't get me wrong, I wish I could be satisfied with a t-shirt and jeans but I have this "go big or go home" mentality that's ingrained in my brain. This outfit started with the leopard sweater and plaid shirt. I was able to combine the prints because one is a more subtle print than the other. That is one key to mixing prints. I added the boots because I love mixing black and brown and because red and brown go together well. I added the necklace with caution. I wanted to make sure it wouldn't overdress the outfit. Once I put it on, it worked perfectly because of its color. If it was gold it probably would of stood out to much. So this is how I speck causal.
