I try to run most of my errands during the week. Doing it on the weekend means hoards of traffic, more crowds and long lines. I like to be comfortable so reach for casual clothes that give me a stylish look. You don’t have to dress up to look stylish, but you need to leave your slippers and rumpled clothes at home.
Welcome to this week’s Hit Your Style Sweet Spot, my weekly collaboration with Pamela Lutrell from Over 50 Feeling 40!
Your Style Sweet Spot is when you know your appearance is sending the message you intend and feel confident you look your best. Last week Pam and I shared how we dressed to attend a graduation…this week we’re dressing for a casual day, running errands.
Casual to me, is not synonymous with sloppy. Unlike the lady I spotted at Costco today… wearing her slippers! It means comfortable, easy to wear clothes that are quick to pull together and require no further thought during my day.
Comfort means flat shoes and jeans with stretch. These jeans from Chico’s have become my favorite.
I like to pop a small handbag inside a tote bag which can hold small purchases and things I need while racing around. It always holds my water bottle and usually a protein bar. This gorgeous tote elevates the look of everything I wear it with.
An oversized, crisp white shirt is comfortable and fresh looking. Yes… it wrinkles by the end of the day…but that doesn’t impact its charm for me. This one is on sale at J Jill here but only in color, not white.
A small hat and some great accessories polish off my simple outfit and keep it from looking plain.
Here’s how I hit my Style Sweet Spot for running errands. I feel stylish, comfortable and well dressed enough to run into anyone during the day.
Now lets pop over to see how Pam dresses to run errands.
