Summer. The season in which you leave your house in the dewy morning hours and return home at night exhausted, with foot woes, and determined to dress more intelligently next time. It’s cool in the morning, hot in the afternoon, and breezy at night — so what’s a girl to do?
We’ve come up with the perfect outfit for a full day out, whether you are brunching and shopping, or hopping on the Jitney and going straight to a beach bbq!
Start with a comfy and fun printed maxi-dress to anchor the look. Keep the boho feel going with stacks of colorful bangles, and make your feet happy with flat sandals embellished with a great detail or pop of color. Now, to layer up for when it gets a little cooler: A lightweight scarf can go from tossed around your neck in the morning to wrapped around your shoulders as the night cools off.
A shrunken leather jacket will also keep you warm at night — but it will also help to ward off the inevitably arctic air-conditioning inside! And did we mention how cool it will look?
