A CASUAL ATHLEISURE OUTFIT IDEA
A CASUAL DAY OUT LOOKBOOK
It feels great to be back here and I am so excited to share my first ever lookbook here on my blog! So yesterday was my 22nd birthday for which I planned out a casual day out with my girlfriends from my high school (childhood friends are the best!). I needed an outfit which is casual athleisure outfit but not really casual (IYKWIM) and TBH I had to spend a lot of time, energy and of course, data to decide my outfit XD
I ended up buying this beautiful black crop top which has these very big ruffle sleeves with white embroidery at its ends and these wide leg, high waisted pants with stripes and suspenders, both from shein.com.TBH I was not very sure how both of these will come out together but I still took the risk and ordered it.
It took around a week for all my stuff to get delivered to my place. The top was exactly the same as it was shown in the picture. I always make sure I read the reviews of every clothing I order from Shein which are mentioned directly below each item. Reviews for the top suggested that I should go for a size larger than what I am. I did the same and it fitted me like a dream. The reviews for the pants suggested me that they were actually navy blue and not black as it was shown in their picture and is true to size. The pants were actually true to size IRL when it comes to the waist area. But since I have a pear-shaped body, it was a little tight for my lower body (one cant do squats in them LOL).
They both looked really nice together and I was relieved! I paired this outfit with my white sneakers which automatically gave it a casual athleisure outfit look. It was comfortable, casual but yet different from what I wear every day. I feel this whole outfit was appropriate for a chill day out with girlfriends especially when you have to go bowling and lunch.
My bestie was kind enough to take pictures of me like a pro 😀 Overall it was a pleasant day and my experimentation worked out just fine for me.
