Summer means excursions and trips to enjoy the outdoors and get some sun; it's a great time of year, but sometimes I struggle to find fashionable outfits that are casual enough for these types of activities. My goal when toning down my looks is to keep the outfit simple, while adding special details which keep it looking chic. For day 1 of our recent boating excursion up the BC coast, I opted for a Parisian-inspired look with a simple striped tank and jeans. I dressed it up with my new Olivia Bib necklace from Stella & Dot to give it that pop of colour and 'chicness', and a straw fedora to give it a breezy summer feel. As you've seen from my Summer Colour Inspiration post, you'll know what goes great with this: mint! So I finished off the look with a mint cardigan to keep things looking light and fresh, yet cozy, since the weather was still not that warm.
So what's the key to looking chic yet casual this summer? Keep your clothes simple and accessorize to give your outfit that extra pop that will make it stand out!
