Shopping is an occasion that isn’t just limited to summertime. There is always a reason to head out to the nearest mall or shopping plaza. Whether you’re in search of a trendy new top or just going to browse a store’s windows with friends, it’s always important to dress for comfort. When I head out I know that there is always a chance I will be trying things on so I make sure to keep my wardrobe limited in pieces. I also try to keep those few pieces simple.
I spotted this Fashionista heading off campus to the nearest plaza searching for some summer steals and deals. This is the perfect time to shop for this hot season because stores are pushing out their tanks and shorts, replacing them with fall items like sweaters and jeans. She was smart and kept her outfit casual with a simple V-neck and shorts. Her light weight tee is similar to Aerie’s V-neck pocket shirt. There are tons of colors to choose from and this shirt is always a good buy in my book. She threw on a pair of flip flops, a great choice when you know you’ll be in and out of the dressing room all afternoon. Her Unisa Fifi cheetah print flip flops added a little pop to her plain tee and shorts. She finished off her look with a pair of readers. Coming from a girl who wears glasses or contacts every moment of every day, I understand the appeal of glasses for a long day at the mall. Go for a trendy pair, like these from Warby Parker. With contacts, you run into the possible problems like needing solution or ripping one, so glasses are a safe bet.
Keep it simple for those shopping extravaganzas. Don’t miss out on possible sales because of your outfit choice.
One Simple Change: To transition this outfit from an afternoon of shopping with mom to a night of dining with friends, swap the shorts for a long, printed maxi skirt. ASOS has a great option in the Pepe Jeans London Floral Maxi Skirt. Tuck in the pink V-neck and add a pair of strappy black gladiators and you’ll be ready for a summer night out with friends.
