Reader Request: Casual Chic

How are you all doing today? Unfortunately I have a cold and am feeling a bit under the weather this week.  And after all the eating out I did the past few weeks I was just starting to eat healthy and get back into a gym routine.  Hopefully I will feel better and get back to the gym in a couple of days.

Anyway, I love it when my reader's email me and ask me style questions because it means I get to be their personal stylist (which I love!)  Maria asked me for a recommendation for a casual chic outfit to wear on a Sunday afternoon to meet her friend's fiance for the first time. They are meeting in the afternoon at a waterfront restaurant and her friend's fiance is quite stylish so Maria wants to look chic and stylish as well. When I came across this image on the Internet (not sure where I found it) I was completely inspired.  I thinking pairing up a pleated skirt with a leather jacket and colorful flats is casual, edgy, and comfortable.

Hope you are feeling better! I love how the girliness of the skirt is balanced by the leather jacket.
