A Sampling of Cute, Casual Outfits I'll Be Wearing ASAP

Confession: I give up too easily when it comes to getting dressed. When I'm short on inspiration, I tend to revert back to a uniform: jeans, a T-shirt, and sneakers or sandals. But, with temperatures steadily creeping up in NYC, I'm finally feeling motivated to break out of my style rut and try on something new for size. Instead of my normal ensemble, I'm craving a few new ideas that, while casual, still feel cool and different.

While I know it's not exactly novel, I find Instagram to be the best place for a quick bolt of inspiration. The social media site is flooded with #OOTD pictures from women whose style I admire in New York, Los Angeles, and even across the globe. Below, I've rounded up seven of those looks that I've set aside to try the next time I'm feeling stuck. Some are cool enough for a weekend drink date with friends while others are more meant for the office. Basically, I've covered all the casual-ish occasions I may need to dress for. As an added bonus, I shopped out pieces to help you pull off my new go-to looks too!
