Casual Elegant Outfits
1. sweater dress + knee high boots
Sweater dresses are my "secret" for that oh so good casual elegance. You look great and look dressed up, yet you're insanely comfy at the same time. Get even more "elegant points" with a midi to maxi sweater dress.

Boots with a heel are another one of my "secrets" for casual elegant outfits. And yes, I have many secrets! 😉 Wearing heels to the grocery store isn't exactly common (but hey, do what you want), though you can mimic the feeling and classiness of heels with pointed toe boots that have a little bit of height.
