Sporty Chic

Whoever came up with the idea of extending a t-shirt into a full on dress was pretty much genius. It’s a piece that’s soft, can be dressed up or down and rolls up into a ball without a thought. Did you see the last time I wore it here?  What an easy piece for travel, which is what I was doing when these photos were taken. Following the wedding Mr. T & I spent a few days in Charleston and Hilton Head soaking in the good vibes. Not a “honeymoon” exactly but days spent just… breathing.

I love a good heel but when you’re wandering through a city without an agenda I find flats or wedges preferable. And with narrow feet I’m pretty sure lace up gladiator sandals were made for me. Ok, maybe they were made for Gladiators, but you get my drift. Shorter wedges are a great option since they give just a little lift but are still street strutting worthy.

Inspired by an urban, chic, sporty vibe I added a silk style bomber jacket for more interest though the last time I wore it here I styled it a little differently.  The grey color keeps this outfit mostly monochromatic and with a dress is on the longer side a nude-ish shoes keep me from looking like I’ve been completely cut in half.  A self proclaimed jewelry hording junkie, this necklace from Charleston had to be mine since I didn’t have anything like it. Much like the necklace, this fab Kendra Phillip cuff adds a great textural element to the look. If you’re not familiar with this designer, little details like etching on the cuff are what make Kendra Phillip pieces special.

For pops of color red sunnies can never be ignored! I highly recommend a fun bright pair of glasses. They bring color to your face and just make you feel happy! This bag may be my favorite at the moment. Colorblocking in more neutral colors plus the classic shape make it a really versatile accessory. Have you started incorporating the sporty chic trend into your wardrobe? You don’t have to be on a team to try it. Besides… shopping while sightseeing should have been added to the official Olympic Sports list a LONG time ago 😉

    1. […] style in spades. Obviously… it had to come home with me! I paired it with this great little tank dress I’ve worn before and a vintage purse I picked up at the same antiques market. Vintage additions like these remind me […]
