Last week, I took my kids to see the new Disney movie, Inside Out. It was in the upper 60's and it was lunchtime! It's the middle of July here in Chicago, and it was in the upper 60's. This is not OK with me. I mean, I don't mind wearing layers, but I feel a bit gypped or I feel like my kids are as far as summer is concerned! But I digress...
When dealing with spring weather in the summer months, layers (as always) are key.
My go-to uniform this summer has been jumpsuits (OK, yes they are my go-to every summer). The last time I styled this beauty there was no need for layers, so it was fun to mix the styling up a bit.
Without much time to get ready, I went out with straight hair and minimal makeup. I added delicate gold jewelry, nude peep-toe wedges, a faux leather crop jacket, and a brown bag. The styling is super simple yet still looks put together and in the end, that's all I was going for.
This outfit was perfect for a lunch movie date followed by some mall walking and a bit of shopping. I was super comfortable and was so glad I had the jacket when I got cold in the theater.
I know we all like to poke fun at Forever 21, but I stopped in there this past week and was blown away! They really upped their game (new buyers maybe?) and with items like this jumpsuit in my current wardrobe, I will continue to pop in there and shop for great basics and rare finds!
