Happy Wednesday! Hopefully you’ve been having a pretty awesome week so far.
I wore this outfit while in Colorado for a day of driving and exploring cities. I love that it looks like a romper (like the two-piece set in this post), but doesn’t have any of the fit or functionality issues of one. This is one of my go-to summer outfits because it keeps me cool and allows me a little more movement than a dress or skirt, which I also love to wear on hot days. However, the materials of the shirt and shorts in particular are very static-prone, which is quite annoying. If anyone has any suggestions to prevent static, I’d love to hear them!
These pictures don’t have the best lighting because a summer thunderstorm was rolling in. Does anyone else love summer thunderstorms? I think they are a lot of fun to watch from a covered porch or from your window, and the smell of rain in the summer is so refreshing!
Top: a.n.a. at JCPenney, $20, similar in a few colors
I wore this outfit in Kansas! We spent most of the day driving, but this outfit was super comfortable for being in a car all day. The pants feel like pajamas. Usually my travel outfits consist of jeans or athletic shorts and an old t-shirt, so to find a cute and comfortable outfit for traveling was exciting.
The lighting in these pictures make my top look like a red/brown color, but it is actually maroon. I’m not going to lie, I have this top in three different colors…I feel like if you like a piece that much, why not get it in every color? And this mock-neck top was only $11, so it just makes sense.
Today I’m wearing complementary colors, something that I don’t usually do. Cobalt blue and bright orange kind of clash in my eyes, but I feel like the navy and burnt orange colors of this outfit actually work well together, especially since there is already orange and blue in the skirt.
I wore this outfit while in Iowa to explore the town and also at a family gathering. It’s great for those blistering summer days because it keeps me cool; I love wearing skirts and dresses when it’s hot and humid out.
I never thought I liked blue and orange together, but now that I think about it, I’ve been on somewhat of a blue and orange kick lately. Just check out my orange purse and navy combo here or my orange pants and turquoise jewelry from Monday’s post.
