What to Wear

Let’s be honest, waking up in the morning to run errands can be absolutely dreadful but even more dreadful to make sure you look good. During the summer, the hot sun can make you sweat and just make you feel really lazy. You would rather lie around in the sun all day drinking some ice-cold lemonade than actually get things done. Unfortunately, that is not the case. A perfect way to motivate yourself to run those errands is to look good while doing it.

This Fashionista has got the right idea. She’s dressed comfortably, weather appropriate and trendy as she checks off her list of things to do for the day. She is wearing denim high-waisted shorts, which are a huge fashion statement this summer. Tucked into the shorts, she is wearing a Nirvana muscle tee. Band shirts and muscle tees are the perfect way to go when you want to look cute and still be comfortable. I ran into this Fashionista at a farmer’s market and what caught my attention were her scrunched down, crew length, cheetah print socks paired with her bright white Converse. The upper half of her outfit is mostly monochromatic and the white shoes and printed socks give it a nice contrast. I have noticed this trend a lot recently and I really think it adds so much fun to a look.  It was a small yet very bold move and it made the outfit pop.

The best way to add interest to your look is to accessorize and that is exactly what this Fashionista did. She is wearing a spiky gold necklace, which adds to the grunge, punk rock image she has going on. She did not over accessorize her jewelry and it was the right choice because it keeps the look toned down and simple. There is already a lot going on between the patterns and colors. Also, you don’t want jewelry weighing you down while you’re out and about. She is carrying a leather Coach backpack as her purse. This gives a more laid-back look. It also makes it easier to shop because you won’t have a giant handbag in the way while trying to carry things. Last, this Fashionista made the perfect shoe choice. White high-top Converse are a huge trend right now and what is more perfect than walking and driving around all day in comfortable, cute sneakers?

One Simple Change: To go from a day to night look swap the high-waisted shorts for a faux leather skater skirt. It will change the look from being casual to the perfect amounts of flirt and edge!
