Like many people, I have a few go to outfits in my closet. Something that I can grab, put on and be ready to head out the door in a hurry. This casual outfit with a nod towards the flowers of summer is one such outfit.
While I consider it still in the spectrum of casual given the pants, I can be found wearing it to church events or even Mass when I am in a hurry.
The black pants were purchased at Kohls. The top is a favorite thrift store find of mine as the fabric hugs my torso while being forgiving of a few extra pounds. And, the Liz Claiborne purse was picked up at a community sale for just $1.
Each time I wear this particular outfit, I try to change up my accessories a bit. This custom made turtle necklace featuring recovered sea glass was made and sold at our parish by the American Heritage Girls Troop. My husband thought of me (and how I collect turtles because they are my sorority’s mascot!) that Sunday as I was home in the middle of a miscarriage. It became a Christmas gift from my husband and boys that year and I love to wear it when I can.
I also adore this necklace from Jewels for Hope which I won in a giveaway a few years ago. The rich cranberry color goes so nicely with this top and the pearls strung between the cranberry beads help to lighten things up. This is another favorite necklace to wear when I want to be dressed up a bit.
Sometimes, I add on a bracelet like this custom one from Jewels of Hope which has both red and green beads featured.
Overall, I can’t help but smile when wearing this outfit.
What is a go to outfit for when you are in a hurry?
