Adventures in the city don’t always call for sky high heels or floaty dresses (although I’m a huge fan of both, especially the heels part 😉 ) Sometimes a trusty pair of comfortable sneakers to walk around in does just the trick, and with the warm weather we’ve been having, I finally decided to bust out the shorts! Keep reading for more details on this outfit and a list of items that can help you recreate it!
Growing up, I always had a pair of converse sneakers to get me from morning to night. I wore them to class, to the movies, on vacations, outdoor adventures, and everything in between. Sadly my old pair from highschool had to be ‘chucked’ years ago from extensive wear that resulted in completely worn down soles, rips along the sides, undone stitching and torn laces. A few years ago I bought these and every once in a while, they make an appearance. They’re not fully broken in, in my opinion (since no pair of chucks is every broken in till they’re starting to look like they’re falling apart) but I’m working on it 🙂
The past year or so I’ve been grown extremely close to my black fedora. Brendan bought be an absolutely beautiful brown Grenadier outback fedora that I’ll definitely be wearing more, but still its hard to part with this trusty black wool one. Anywhos, back to the outfit. Here I threw on a plain white button-up shirt that I found at H&M (a plain white button up is a must have for every wardrobe, both male and female), of course, the turkish coin necklace from Forever 21 (sorry I’m going to be living in this necklace for a while haha), a pair of old distressed denim shorts, a red sleeveless kimono that I found at Urban Outfitters last year on the sale rack that I felt like needed a home, and my nightingale purse that is a great carry-all for all my unnecessary things that I always feel like I need to tote around with me, that and with all of the simple pieces of my outfit, I felt that I should throw in one good investment piece.
Who said plain white button up shirts had to be boring or just for the office? Below are some similar pieces I found that could help create a similar look to this one.
