When Piperlime invited me to create a story for their Fall 2014 #momentsofchic campaign, I started thinking about what being “chic” means to me. Of course, getting all dressed up the nines for a glamorous event is always exciting, but most of us who live in reality, it’s the little every day moments that really make life count.  Life is what it is, and to be honest, between my 9 to 5 job on weekdays and being somewhat of a hermit on weekends, I try to make even the most mundane parts of my life exciting by appreciating the little things. To me, starting off with a cup of my favorite tea every morning creates the perfect “me” moment I need to start my day. What better way to live a life on the go, than in a comfortable, yet very put-together outfit? I absolutely love the fit of these jeans; they’re probably the softest denim I currently own, and the black tee with sheer crochet detail adds a very alluring element to what is otherwise a very simple get-up.

What are some “moments of chic” in your daily life? Share your story in the comment section below, I can’t wait to read it! :)

    Casual outfits are my favorite!

    My moments of chic are whenever I get to dress up for important occasions, or simply when I’m out with friends at a Downtown bar.

    Love your blog!

    Love that your take on chic is not a super dolled up look, but something that you feel confident and gorgeous in. Like Alexander Wang said, “Anyone can get dressed up and be glamourous, but it is how people dress in their days off that are most intriguing.”

  • I love this look! Casual has been my go to look recently since I’m still so busy with school.

    My moment of chic would surprisingly be after I finish teaching a Zumba class when I’m drenched in sweat. I loved dancing all my life and seeing all of my students excited, happy, and a little exhausted after a great workout inspires and motivates me!

  • AWWWWW, congrats on this whole Piperlime thing! I, like you must begin or end my day with tea. It’s honestly my favorite part of my day. I feel you on not always being dressed up. When I start my day at 7 am, it’s always a challenge to look like I’m ready for Fashion week. Some days, we must chill! That aside, when I grow up, I wanna be like you bloggers mehn. You guys never have a day where your hair is not laiddddd!

    You look absolutely stunning, Coco! Loved how you defined chic in your post especially – I think it really is the simple moments and little things that make each day that much better.

    One of my favorite “moments of chic” are probably right when I’m putting the final touches on my outfit. I love adding a fun statement necklace and oversized sunnies and a few pretty rings!
