A reader asked me recently to share one of my more laid-back outfits. Today, I do just that. I have a few uniforms that I can throw together quickly for a run to my neighborhood Target, a stop by my favorite corner restaurant for takeout, or an afternoon visit to Starbucks. That ensemble is always relaxed.
Tee—Banana Republic (under $10 in-store)
Bag—Kate Spade Saturday | option
Earrings—℅ Kendra Scott
Bangle—℅ Kendra Scott
A drapey tee. Crepe shorts. Slide sandals. These are staples in my laid-back style because they’re comfortable and versatile. In this outfit, I blend my favorite bold hues—orange, purple, and pink—for a fun, colorblocked spin on casual.
I never leave home without earrings. Never. I often reach for a pair of my Kendra Scott earrings because each pair I own is a standout that I can wear alone or with other pieces. The Kendra Scott Francie earrings (in pink agate) are crucial in today’s look. They add a beautiful pop and an important additional block of color.
I have my hair pulled back using a Puff Cuff (the JR. size), a clamp designed for thick, curly hair. My girl, Haley at Derby City Naturals, introduced me to the product. I love it because it securely holds my kinky hair in place without pulling at the edges. The clamp is such a relief from my usual banana clips and Goody hair bands. If your puffs and ponytails give you headaches, check out the Puff Cuff.
