WHAT TO WEAR: Shopping

What to Wear

The perfect de-stressor is a day out spending your hard earned money. Retail therapy is one of the easiest ways to cheer you up. Whenever I’m feeling upset or angry, I go to my local mall and spend hours picking out my newest pieces of clothing. There’s something about spending money and buying new clothes that I know makes everyone happy. Thinking of new outfits that you can create with your new items of clothing, and actually being able to wear them, is something that is worthwhile. While spending money may stress some people out, to me, it is the easiest way to make myself feel better. I caught this Fashionista on her way into the mall, looking comfortable and casual for a day out shopping with her friends. Her outfit is perfect for this occasion because it is simple and easy for a full day of shopping.

Her crop top and denim shorts make for the perfect outfit for running around a busy mall. They are super easy to take off, which makes trying on clothes an easy accomplishment. When shopping, it is easiest to wear clothes that won’t be too difficult to take off. Trying on clothes can be a lot of work, even without the stress of having to remove all of the layers you decided to wear. I am more likely to want to buy something if I don’t have to struggle to try it on. You should also wear clothes that can be used as a base for trying on new clothes. This Fashionista’s denim shorts can be paired with almost any top while her plain crop top can match any type of bottom.

Her statement necklace provides the pizzazz that the outfit needs. It contrasts the light blue of the shirt and denim shorts. Her bag is big enough to carry around whatever she might want throughout the day. The light material of the bag causes it to not be too heavy no matter what you put in it. Her watch and bracelets add just the perfect amount of excitement to the outfit without overpowering the necklace. Her shoes are comfortable and classy. They are perfect for walking around in all day. This Fashionista is sure to work out her problems on this long day of shopping!

One Simple Change: Ready for a night out with the girls? Throw on a pair of black high-waisted jeans. They are perfect for chilly summer nights while still looking nice. Put on a pair of your favorite pumps and swap the bag out for an evening clutch.
