I apologize for my before picture- but I had to do it.
In the past few days I have seen several moms sporting the ‘socks with sandals’ look- and it has got to stop!
Yes, I know I live in the Pacific Northwest- where some people consider this to be ok… but honestly, it’s not.
As for my outfit- I love the simple, classic look of khaki and white together- as seen here and here.
These 2 colors are always in style. However- as usual, I must tell you that you can’t just throw on a white golf shirt and a pair of cropped khakis and call it good.
In my opinion a collared shirt should only be worn on the golf course.
As for the knee length cropped khakis- surely the picture says it all. These are not flattering- they are frumpy!
On the left you can see my re-worked outfit. This cute cargo style skirt is a great alternative to the cropped khaki pant. The pockets give it some detail, and the leopard belt peeking out adds an interesting pattern. On that same note, instead of a plain white shirt, I have chosen this cool waffle texture shirt. It has these cute buttons down the front- which also add some visual interest.
Lastly- I’m wearing my orthopedic sandals by Naot. I LOVE these shoes!! They are truly one of the most comfortable shoes I have EVER owned. I’ll be sad when summer is over and I can’t wear them anymore. I need to see if Naot makes boots?! Anyone?!
We actually have a term for this weather here in Seattle- June Gloom.
After a truly gorgeous May- we have now entered into the rainy season. And by rainy, I mean RAINY.
It looks like it could be December out there… UGH! Seriously?!
So while the rest of the country is basking in the sun, we are donning our rain gear and making the best of it.
Rather than look like the picture on the right- I decided to skip the bright blue (unflattering) rain coat and tacky pink boots and instead opted for a cute mini skirt (it is summer after all) paired with my Hunter rain boots and a cute striped tank. Since it is only 55 degrees out there, I had to add a cute little black cardigan so I don’t freeze!
Even though it is very ‘un Seattle like’ to use an umbrella- today I will be doing such that!
Enjoy your day by the pool and if it makes you feel better, think of me sloshing around in the rain.
A reader asked what coat I would be wearing, so here you go! I also had to add tights because I was wrong about the temp- it’s actually 48, not 55. BRRRRRRRR!
