Keep It Simple

Outfit Details: Floral Pants + Attached Belt (Blooming Clothing), Basic T-Shirt (H&M), Handbag (Ralph Lauren), Brown Flats (Rocket Dog), Accessories (Forever 21)

The other day I was talking to a friend about how I don't really own any "bum" clothes. I once invested in a really nice Juicy Couture tracksuit, mind you it took me forever to find one that I really liked, and I only remember wearing it about two times during winter. It's just not my thing. A casual, laid-back outfit for me would be something like the one pictured above: a basic t-shirt with some sort of funky trousers and complete with lots of accessories.

I'd love to know: what is your idea of "bum" or laid-back/wear-at-home clothing?

P.S. I went to the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) yesterday with one of my good friends, Kevin, and had the best time! We decided not to go on any of the rides because we ate a lot of food and didn't want to get sick, but played a bunch of other games and went to the casino. If you haven't been yet this summer, I suggest you go! It lasts a total of 13 days and September 3 will be the last night.

  1. Hi dear, the floral pants look so lovely on you, I'd love to try something like this out, I like the chic way you've styled it.

    1. Thanks Sam! You should try it... you'll be surprised at how flattering printed pants are on everybody.

  2. My go-to 'bummy' clothes: black leggings + long t-shirt or sweater! Nice and comfy!

    1. Oooh, that is classic! I love leggings with... everything. Haha.

  3. Hi Anum! You look fabulous as always! Love the floral print and that bag is such a pretty color and so classic. The CNE sounds like fun! I have to be careful about going on rides too... even "mild" ones with my girls sometimes gets me feeling a bit green. :P

    1. It's funnny because when I was a kid, I could go on any roller coaster or ride, over and over again, for days straight. Now just going on one makes me feel queasy! Carnivals and amusement parks are fun regardless, especially if you go with a great group. :)

  6. This is your bum look?? Wow. Mine is definitely a t-shirt and sweat pants and flip flops. More typically though, it will be skinny jeans. You look great!


    1. Cute! I just don't like sweat pants, not sure why... maybe it's the name? haha. I love dressing up though, it comes really natural to me so even when I am just at home hanging out, I will probably look like the photos above.
