Do you plan out your outfits in advance, or are you more of a fly by the seat of your pants type of person?
I think my hectic, early mornings require SOME level of advance planning, or at least a level of awareness of what I’ve got going on that day in order for me to style something that’s comfortable, appropriate and relatively put together. Otherwise, getting dressed can turn into a sh*t-show of a mess and an unnecessary and frustrating, time suck.
With plans to steal away for a casual night on the lake with my hubs (hubs > hubby > husband, right?!) to hear some live music, grab a few drinks and take part in some major food truck gorging (EDGEWATER LIVE — do it!), I started thinking about some very important things — like what I was going to wear.
Totally crucial, I know.
I wanted something casual and easy, without unnecessary fuss. I needed an outfit that could keep me comfortable in cooler, lakeside temps and during picnic, pop-a-squat-on-the-grass-style lounging. That’s a pretty long list of demands, huh?
Anyway, I think I got it figured out… and the footwear option may surprise you. Ready for it?
Your best shoe friends have probably been collecting dust in the back of your closet but it’s time to get them out and show them some summer lovin’. To keep your ankle booties from looking too heavy in the summer months, make sure to pair them with shorts, or a shorter-length dress in light, floaty fabrics and colors.
My feet are already thanking me. Ahhhh….
