Maybe it is the gloomy morning and darker skies, but lately I have been seeking out more casual and everyday wear versus outfits that are fashion forward. Don’t get me wrong, I love fall fashion and of course all the layering and rich fabrics like fur and velvet, but once in a while, it is nice and refreshing to put on something that everyone has in their closet.

This is an outfit that I literally wore out today to run some errands (who says over the knee boots can’t be worn to run errands?). I took my homemade latte (using my favorite Nespresso machine), put it in a cup I upcycled from The Melt (I am so guilty of reusing my cups a little too often), and went out with the hubs to buy some essentials at Costco. Lucky for me the hubs carries his camera around most of the time so we pulled over to the side of Costco and shot this look. Yes, you read that right, these photos were taken against a Costco building. Not only is this a real #ootd, it is a real #sidewalkstyle shot, unplanned, and unrehearsed.

What I like about this outfit is that it is something I didn’t have to think about. The individual pieces are clothing that everyone would have some version of in their wardrobe and it is very relatable. Style isn’t always about the trendiest clothes, biggest sleeves, or slouchiest pants. Style can be basic pieces put together and pulled off with confidence and a smile (something I am working on doing more of). So the moral of this post is, whether you are debuting the latest trend or a basic tee and denim outfit, as long as you wear it with confidence and poise, you will have heads turning.

This is definitely head-turning outfit! I agree with following the trend but also wear what you feel most confident and comfortable with as well. And how cool is you made home-made latte?


dailykongfidence October 20, 2016 - 1:41 pm

Thanks Jo! I agree, confidence goes a long way in pulling off a look. I am obsessed with my Nespresso machine and use it every single day! Better than Starbucks!

Girl you sure know how to make the side of a Costco building look good haha! I love this sexy look. The denim skirt + OTK boots combo is just fabulous! Certainly more chic than anything I ever wear grocery shopping (oops guilty). Love!

You are too sweet Stephanie and funny! =) I don’t always wear OTK boots to Costco lol, just happened to do so that day. =)

Jenn Hanft October 20, 2016 - 4:49 pm

I love this causal look! Who says we can’t reuse things and throw in some denim for fall? I love the OTK’s!! I haven’t gotten a chance to pull mine out of the closet yet, but I can’t wait! Looking super chic for Costco girl. That’s so funny that you shot right there! It’s also so great how effortless this was and truly street stylin’!!

And omg Nespresso machine? I’ve been dying to get my hands on one at home, but haven’t had the chance yet. I had it once getting a blow out and it’s amazing!!

XO Jenn

dailykongfidence October 20, 2016 - 9:54 pm

Hi Jenn! No need to pull the OTK boots out yet bc it’s still summer here! Isn’t that crazy? It was cold for about one second, then back to summer. lol. OMG, yes, I have been using my Nespresso for about five years and I still love it!

Jo October 20, 2016 - 6:56 pm

I love that this was an impromptu shot! You look gorgeous even “off duty”! I absolutely agree with you, confidence and a smile does wonders.

xo, Jo

dailykongfidence October 20, 2016 - 10:05 pm

Thanks Jo! I am actually trying to do more of these because this is how I really dress and it’s not always about wearing something for the gram. Also trying to work on smiling more hehe.

Atsuna Matsui October 20, 2016 - 8:30 pm

Looking soo chic girl for just running errands! Haha I totally know what you mean when some days you want to just dress casually yet still stay chic. In fact, I definitely dress more casual than fashion forward most days in LA cause it just feels so much more comfortable as well. We don’t need to sacrifice style for comfort though.


dailykongfidence October 20, 2016 - 10:11 pm

Yes, you said it perfectly! You don’t need to sacrifice style for comfort and basics and I like that everyday clothes are relatable to everyone. I love your style and it’s chic but also realistic.

Alyssa October 20, 2016 - 8:34 pm

Girl, you are too cool doing this spontaneous shoot outside of Costco, LOL! For me, I always want to feel and be prepared before a shoot or else I get all nervous and not as confident! 🙁 It’s so inspiring and encouraging to see how you can showcase adorable outfits just about anywhere at any time 😉 Love love love your OTK boots and I need me a good pair!!!

dailykongfidence October 22, 2016 - 3:16 pm

Haha, I’ve actually been experimenting with mixing in literally everyday OOTD and some planned out shoots. I like being able to relate to my followers and showing them what I wear on a daily basis too because that’s why I started to being with…to share my style. Yes, OTK boots are a must have and these are by Steve Madden and so affordable and adjustable around the thighs. Check into them!
