Saturday Casual for Errands

Saturday is the day when I run most of my errands. Target runs and grocery shopping are typically at the top of my to-do list. Even though it’s a casual day, I don’t want to look sloppy when I’m out and about. I don’t want to be all dressed up either but having a look that is put-together and not by accident is important to me. I just feel better when I am put-together.

Running errands looks do not have to be difficult. They can be quite simple. They don’t require a lot of thought but instead it is a look that is intentional. Ease and intention are a perfect style combination.

What does Saturday casual look like for you? For me, thatt can be a few things but it typically looks a little like this look. It’s almost always jeans {in cooler months anyway} plus a little layering. I love layers because it gives a look dimension and put-together.
When layering you can:
1. stick to tone on tone
2. add various textures for a visual appeal
3. mix patterns
4. mix complimentary colors
5. use pieces from various seasons {a spring/summer top under a fall/winter sweater}
There are lots of possibilities. My choice was a tone on tone. Grey on grey is something that I think works and it works for me. Since this sweater has a sporty feel, I added the sneakers to keep in line with that vibe. This look is new so it definitely fits the theme for this link-up with The Blended Blog and the New Year Styled Link-up.
I hope you’ll link up with us today and be inspired!
A little humor today too…As you can see from the pictures the sun was shining beautifully which caused me to squint, close my eyes and do other odds things. Blogger bloopers for your enjoyment!

The sweater was gifted to me by Zaful and I must add it is quite fun and super unique. I think having a grey cardigan is almost mandatory in any wardrobe but having one that is unique makes it even better. You can find it here.

    THE perfect errand running attire : ) love your style Carrie and the sweater is really cute! How do you think Zaful's sizings run?
    • Hi Susan! This sweater is a size small. One thing I love about Zaful is they give measurements in their product descriptions which has been super helpful to order the correct size. If you purchase you'll love it. Soft and comfy.
