For the past few weekends, we have been heading out of our suburbia to the smaller surrounding cities to walk, eat, and catch up with one another. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t utterly in love with this and the unique cities and shops we visit, if you’re following me on Instagram I’ve probably been blowing up your feed with photos! On these days I like to wear simple pieces, but I still mix in a few light layers for our unpredictable weather, and in the event of spilling on my white shirt (Instagram followers, you know what I’m talking about). I’m excited to see what next weekend holds, the cities seem to have so much to see and do that one trip never seems to be enough, so maybe (if I’m lucky) we’ll even return!

BABY HUES

Can I just say how much I love this skirt? It’s insanely soft and comfortable; the perfect weekend piece by far! Although, don’t forget to wear spandex underneath, I made the mistake of walking out the door without them once and had quite a few “Marilyn Monroe” moments that day!
Ralph Lauren Tailored Boyfriend Shirt (similar GAP one here) / Brandy Melville Skirt (similar here for 40% off w/ email sign up) / Nike Hat (old, similar on sale here) / (what once were…) White Converse (will have a cleaning tutorial for them up soon!) / Vintage Sunglasses (similar here) / Long Necklace / Anthropologie x BaubleBar plate necklace (similar here)  / Striped Tote Bag (old, similar here and multicolor under $20 one here)
I am a sucker for a cute, relaxed look, and this outfit just proves that. Mix simple pieces and baby neutral hues and you have what I call the “Shelby look”. Simply put, I like to keep my style functional and versatile, that way I can go to a majority of places and events without needing to own 1,000 different pieces. And if there’s any way to prove that’s been done just take a look above at my converse – those puppies have seen whiter days! This outfit may have been worn out to the farmer’s market, but there’s nothing stopping me from re-wearing it and reworking it for different events this summer. After all, you can never go wrong with a good constructed shirt and skirt pairing.

RUN ALONG WITH ME

Hat (old, similar here) / White Jean Jacket / Drape Black Top (sleeveless here) / Grey Sweatpants (old, similar here) / Nike Tennis Shoes (also loving these gems!) / Necklace / VS Lipstick in Riveting
If you asked me what this look “is”, I couldn’t give you one straight answer. It’s comfortable enough to be worn around the house (maybe minus the jacket then), reminds me of what you’d wear to an outdoor sporting event, or something you’d wear just running errands around the city. But that’s what makes this look so great; it’s so versatile! Not only that though, it combines some of my favorite elements too; comfy sweats, Nike tennis shoes (which I was born and raised in), a hat and sunnies of some sort, and denim (oh, denim, how I love you). Plus, this outfit really mixes with the on-trend “sporty” look. So, trendy and comfortable? I can get used to this.
