How To Look Cute While Running Errands

My fail-proof outfit for running errands is always anchored by joggers and sneakers. While I rely on these casual, sporty style staples, I like to make sure I create outfits I love. So, I style every errand outfit like I would style any other type of outfit. I add color, some structure, and keep it moving.

I partnered with the Saint Louis Galleria to highlight my experience shopping spring styles there. Check out my Instagram post here. I had a lot of ground to cover, and I’m still recovering from a broken big toe. So, a casual and comfy outfit was necessary.

This outfit started with the jogger pants and the sneakers. I wanted to dress it up a bit, and my go-to for doing that is always a sharp but fun blazer. This fuchsia blazer, an older style from Milly that I bought in Nordstrom, provided the perfect complementary color to the purple joggers. I layered the blazer over a light pink t-shirt, which created so much harmony with the blazer.

My hands-free, cross-body camera bag in white was the perfect finishing touch because it blended in without adding more color and overwhelming the colorblocked outfit.

That’s my formula. And, this is my uniform for work these days and for running errands. It works because it meets the needs of life right now.

Want to know another thing? The sweatpants are only $15 and the t-shirt is $5. You truly don’t have to spend a lot to look chic and feel amazing.

A Brilliant Blue Color Combination To Try This Spring

Greetings, fellow lovers of bright colors. One of the best ways to get more mileage out of our colorful wardrobes is to mix and match. Color blocking is our friend! I was inspired to try this blue color combination–cobalt and copper–while watching an episode of Stylish with Jenna Lyons on HBO Max. One of the characters on the show presented an eye-catching outfit that paired cobalt with brown. When I saw it, I immediately knew that I wanted to try a version of it. I own a few copper pieces, like the Theory coat I’m caping today. Copper pairs so beautifully with cobalt. Read on for all the details.

Cobalt blue color combination

My cobalt blazer is from Zara. I’m so hooked on Zara’s double-breasted blazers with the metal buttons (see me wear one in navy here and here). They look so expensive and fit impeccably well once you find your size. I buy the medium for a relaxed yet structured fit. The prices range from $89.90 (like this one) to $149.00. They’re worth every penny.

To create the color combination, I wore the cobalt blazer over white and caped a copper coat over the blazer. This coat is one of my favorite buys in 2020. I wear it with so much (see here, here, here, and here). It retailed originally for $795 and is now marked down by 70%! Such a steal. For reference, I’m wearing the coat in a size medium.
