I love a killer pair of stilettos or a dress that hits every curve perfectly and makes me feel ultra feminine, but nothing beats comfortable and casual clothing that's cute. Whether I'm running errands, meeting a friend for lunch, or having a quick shop at the mall, I like to dress for function, but that doesn't mean frumpy or sloppy.
It's easy to get stuck in a rut of constantly wearing yoga pants and Nikes everywhere. And make no mistake, I'm a huge fan of athleisure wear, but unless my errands immediately follow a gym visit, I try to leave my favorite pair of leggings and sneakers behind. There are so many easy ways to dress up a look without sacrificing comfort. You can take your favorite jeans, add a cute blouse and fun pair of shoes, and you've got a fashionable and functional outfit.
My look featured in photos above is both comfortable and cute. Cold shoulders and stripes are very popular right now. They've been popular for a while and seem to be staying on trend.
This black and cream striped cold shoulder top is perfect to transition from Winter to Spring as it is lightweight with breathable fabric and long sleeves. I paired it with bright red sandals for a fun pop of color. Since I live in South Florida, I wear sandals year-round, but if it's not warm enough where you are now, pair with ballet flats or peep toe booties. You could always add a colorful handbag or piece of jewelry in place of bright shoes or sandals.
And as enter Spring and early Summer, you can pair this top and sandals with capris or shorts and favorite fedora. You can shop all pieces from my photos below and some options for Spring and Summer as well. - Jill xoxo
