Hi everyone!! Happy Saturday!
On a random note, this is the first time I am writing a blogpost from my phone..is that wired? Do other people do this? Either way, I’m here today with some insight into dressing sensible AND cute at the same time!
Ever taken a day trip and thought, jeeze, ‘I really want to be cute but I feel like I have to wear sneakers and something that I’ll be able to move in.’ Me too!! However, the other thought that goes through my head is, ‘Okay, I’ve accepted that I have to be sensible, but why can’t I be cute too?’ There’s no such thing as one or the other, and I have some super fun tips as to how I come up with outfits that work for both!
- You have to wear sneakers: FINE! Wear them! There are plenty of sneakers out there that make for a cute and relaxed look. I simply did a Pinterest search the day before my NYC day trip and wrote ‘cute outfits with sneakers’ and BOOM instant inspo!! Ps. Slide ons of any kind are always a good option because they have support AND style. If you are flat footed however, it could be a problem since there is ZERO arch support. I picked up these super cute pair from Macy’s Backstage!
- You just want to wear a T-shirt and be relaxed because you’re walking around: do it! Pairing a T-shirt with something like a mini skirt, (or even a midi or maxi!!) can be really fun and a nice challenge for you to figure out a look outside your comfort zone. I also like to pair a graphic tee with white jeans, distressed denim Bermuda shorts or under a lace-y tank dress!
- You want to wear a backpack: awesome!! There are so many cute small backpacks out there—I just saw a TON at Marshall’s now that it’s ‘back to school’ (it’s really not, but if the commercials say it is, then I guess it is) either way, take advantage of that back pack stock even if you aren’t going back to school and get yourself a cute backpack for travel days!
- You want to wear your hair up: No one ever said that if your hair is in a high pony or a messy bun that all bets are off for a cute outfit. Play into your hairstyle and create a look that compliments it! You can do a high pony, statement earrings, jean shorts and a simple tank and have a totally chic outfit with little effort and super sensible.
