Ever have someone tell you that it’s going to be ‘dressy casual’ and you have no idea what that even means? Well, it means that you have to find an outfit that you won’t feel underdressed OR overdressed in. They do exist, I promise. And not just in the form of skinny jeans, a dressy top and heels (I do love that look btw). Here is my favorite take on summertime ‘dressy casual’.It works for patio brunches on the weekends, rooftop dinners on a weeknight or shopping around wicker park if you can stand the heels (high heels high hopes, ladies!)Why does it work? Pairing a cotton skirt with a silk or light polyester top dresses it down and vice versa. Gold heels dress up any outfit. So does a smile…and a bright tote.
What do you do to dress up your outfits? I’d love to know!
