  5. Rihanna always looks fierce, even in her casual wear.
    Also, if there are no Starbucks or Coffee Bean cups, a Jamba Juice one will do. Those smoothies are all sorts of amazing.

  7. Jennifer Aniston always pulls off casual really well but maybe too often. I like to think of the Olsens as casually luxurious. Great post!
