This is the outfit I wore for the six hour car drive and also while hanging out with the kids at night. After a long drive, it always feels good to take a walk so we went to the Herrick Lake Forest Preserve.
I wore a sleeveless top from CJBanks with a white tank underneath, white bermuda shorts (old, Walmart), and nude sandals from Younkers.
I only had my iPhone with me on this walk so my photos are not very clear, which is a shame because I'd love for you to see a better detail of the embroidery on this top. It is so pretty! I bought it on-line and ordered a medium and it's just a tad big on me, so I wish I would have purchased a small. Ugh! One of the reasons I do not like shopping on-line! I'm going to wash it first to see if it shrinks a little, and if it doesn't I will see if I can take it in a bit.
My bermuda shorts I picked up at end-of-summer clearance sale at Walmart for only $3.00! It was so late in the season when I bought them that this is the first time I've been able to wear them. I decided I was finally done with capris and I will only wear ankle pants or bermuda shorts instead. I don't think I look good in capris because of where they stop on my legs. A few more or less inches of fabric doesn't affect my comfort level anyway.
The sandals are new. I bought them at Younkers for only $14.99! It was an unbelievable score because they normally cost over $60.00. I just happened to visit the store when they were having a "Black Friday Sale in May", and the shoes were on special for $24.99 and then I was able to use a $10.00 coupon as well! I was so happy, because I have decided I was not going to wear uncomfortable shoes anymore and to purge my closet of them. These shoes are so comfortable, I could walk for miles in them!
Have a Great Day! Amy

Gorgeous photos. You look great in your casual outfit. The shorts length is perfect too Hugs!ReplyDelete
Thanks Katherine! I just started wearing Bermudas last year. I never thought they looked good on before, but I found a few pair I like.Delete
Nice outfit. Love how the bermuda shorts look on you. Not sure why but I always feel like Bermudas don't look good on me, maybe I need to try on several pairs to find something fitting. Such a pretty area you got to visit! I agree, taking a nature walk feels so good after a long drive!ReplyDelete
Thanks Elli! I actually have had the same problem with Bermuda shorts. They have to have just the right fit or they don't look right. You need to not give up and keep trying them on!Delete
Looks like the perfect outfit for the drive and then transitioning for an evening with family. So glad you had nice weather!ReplyDelete

You look so fresh in that outfit, Amy, love those sandals and them being so comfy makes them pretty perfect for the whole summer. The area you walked looks so peaceful.jReplyDelete
Thank you! I love that you used the words "fresh" and "comfy" in your comments. That perfectly describes my style most of the time.Delete
Cute, cute, cute!! Perfect outfit and what a beautiful setting. There are certain bermudas that I love but they have to fit just right. The ones you have on are very flattering.ReplyDelete
Thanks Stacey. I couldn't agree more with you on Bermudas. They have to have just the right fit!Delete

Great weekend look. Great photos. Thanks for joining the Top of the World Style linkup party.ReplyDelete
This is a great look, easy comfort and so very modern. The bermuda length is perfect on you and I hear you on the topic of sticking with only comfortable shoes. It can be hard to find ones that have style and you've managed to do so. Well done on all accounts. Thank you for sharing this post on my Fine-Whatever link up.ReplyDelete
Thanks Rena. It is hard to find stylish, comfortable shoes! I agree with that!Delete
