When I'm getting ready in the morning, I'm genuinely excited to get dressed. It is my time to play dress-up. One day I may pair some colorful tennis shoes to match some boyfriend jeans and an oversized tee, and the next day -- light, flowy shorts with a cute tank. I am especially giddy if I am trying out a combination of clothes or accessories I’ve just added to my wardrobe.
Some days, I plan outfits in my head -- I store them up, ready for the next special event or occasion. I may not always have the piece that I have in mind, but I'm always on the lookout. Maybe I have too much time on my hands, or maybe I just can't help but love when an outfit comes together. There are times it doesn’t come as naturally as others, and occasionally it feels like there is nothing in my closet at all. When that happens, I know I can always count on some of my favorite flowy clothes to make me feel cute, comfortable and ready to take on the day.
Flowy pants and shorts can always be found in my closet. Sometimes these items are just what you need when it's too hot for jeans. Not to mention, you can find them in any color, style or pattern. Depending on the top and accessories, you can always dress them up or down!
Patterned boho wide leg pants are perfect for a casual day shopping and can easily transition to a night on the town with some wedges and statement jewelry. Some black joggers and a v-neck make for the perfect on-the-go look. When this style is complemented by some delicate jewelry, your outfit has an effortless look and feel.
And of course, summertime calls for shorts! Fun patterns and prints make flowy shorts the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. Grab a cute hat, a tank top and patterned shorts for the perfect day, in or out. Living in Arizona, I wear shorts all the way through October and I love how well they pair with an oversized sweater and booties.
Sometimes it just takes a little bit of mixing and matching to find out that you can do a lot with a few staple, and stylish, pieces!
