Casual Stripes

July 24, 2015


I find myself dressing more and more casual every day. Maybe it’s the heat. But I’ve been living in these distressed Volcom denim shorts and button-ups, alternating between lace-up sandals, loafers and booties. This seems to be my go-to 100-degree-weather attire.

It’s nice to take a break every now and then from dressing to the nines on the daily. I find I get more use out of my wardrobe the more casual I dress. You’d be surprised how much you can coordinate with separates from both the casual and dressy side of your closet. Pair a dressy blouse with your favorite denim shorts for an unexpected casual look. Or maybe wear your favorite tee with a pair of trousers and heeled sandals. It’s also the perfect way to pack and make the most of what you can travel with.
