Casual Luxe


Clothes that are comfy and chic at the same time are like foods that are mutually healthy and tasty. In other words, the best joys in life. As I’ve mentioned before, I didn’t think I could pull off the silky harem pants until I tried on the Gold Hawk versions and fell in love. This pair wears a little bit slouchier, and the polka dots make them a bit more playful than the solid black. At the same time I found these, I instantly became obsessed with the silk pocket tee, another Gold Hawk staple that I simply must get in black and navy too. It’s comfy and soft, but so easy to dress up because it’s silk. In this case, I threw the two together to create the softest, loungiest, floatiest, yet sleek outfit I can muster up. Add in some Chucks, Rockstuds, gold bling, and you get one happy girl who’s ready to tackle a day of e-mails, lunch with a friend, or an endless list of errands.

  1. I could not agree more about comfy clothes! That’s why I’m so in love with the sweatshirt trend. Great look and even more great bag!

  2. I love your silky/slouchy pants! I totally agree, comfy clothes that are still stylish are treasures. I love that you paired the easy but dressed up pieces with converse… super cute!

  3. Totally digging the silky harem pants. I myself live in jersey slouchy pants but the bf hates the way they sag. However these gold hawn ones look WAY more attractive but still comfortable! Need to get a pair! Super cute casual look! Thanks for the share!

  4. I absolutely love this look! Each piece is simple and classic on its own but paired together?? WIN. Love it.

  5. What a fun outfit!

  8. To Howard – I am not an expert, but the point is that, apart from the 11 days dirfefence (in the 18th century – the difference is now 13 days), the Julian calendar used in Britain began the year on 25 March, not 1 January. So 1709 carried on until 24 March 1709, and 1710 did not start until 25 March.

  9. fyi, I also saw tweets (though not fr US, but Pakistan) suggesting this approach to prosecute Israel. I mention this b/c all the time I hear intent to eventually prosecute Israel for various alleged "crimes," but via blasphemy was a new approach. – ER
