Beach Casual

Here's a tip. Trying adding something unexpected to your outfit. Like edgy shoes with a girly outfit (my favorite!), a bow in your hair with an edgy outfit (another favorite), a bright scarf with a neutral outfit, mixed-and-matched patterns, or in this case, a jean vest over an otherwise uber casual outfit. 

As silly as it may seem, I loved this outfit. I was in a comfy mood and refused to change out of my boyfriend's shirt. But I didn't want to look like a slob. And it was one of those sporadic rain sort of days, so I knew rainboots were going to be needed (and trust me, those things are hard to coordinate with). So I threw on some distressed jean shorts, pulled my hair back into a pony, and added some stud earrings. But it just felt sloppy. That's when I added the jean vest. And you know what? It just felt right. I felt I was going out in an outfit with purpose, but still with a casual, just-thrown-together feel. It was perfect for getting ice cream, ducking in and out of souvenir shops, and -- the best part -- prancing around on the beach looking for shells (and a random piece of coral!).
