Good day everyone!

I am hoping you all had a fabulous weekend! This was the first weekend I felt settled in to my new apartment without any plans … the R&R was lovely! Over the weekend Paolo and I ran a few errands {Groceries, Ikea returns, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, Movies … etc} when I was inspired for this post. I have always been conflicted in the hot summer months deciding what to wear for a noon outing. This is mainly due to the hot summer heat and cranked A/C in stores, so I wanted to share with you my solution : tie a plaid button down around your waist.

I normally start with the basics, a white tank and denim jeans, and rely upon a plaid button down and necklace to add some pizzazz. I finish off my look with a cute cap {depending on if I had time for my hair} and comfortable flats {that will keep my toes warm}. I love having a quick cover up with me {especially in the theatre} in case I get chilly.

What is your summer go to look for running errands?

    Cover ups are a must in the summer! Sometimes I think my cardigans get more use in the summer! I love this casual look. It’s so cute!

    Great casual look! I love the flannel around the waist/grunge style that’s so popular now. It’s cute and practical when you need to throw on that extra layer.

    This just shows how you can wear basics effortlessly yet very stylishly. I like how your check shirt is around your waist.
