The material of a piece of clothing is very important to me. Regardless of my travel status I have a very low tolerence for tight, unforgiving, scrachy fabrics. I am the person that walks around the clothing store touching everything before I even pull something out to look at it. If it isn’t soft, there is no point in even looking at it.
For summer in particular I prefer denim and linen. Mind you, despite what I say every year in August, Oregon is very temperate. I would certainly not be wearing jeans all summer if I lived in Palm Springs.
I also wear a decent amount of patterened dresses, though my favorite travel dress is this older Boden dress. The length and cap sleeves provide enough modesty for most European desinaitons while also being cool and comfortble enough to wear all day.
I am a big fan of fashion. I had at one point wanted to be a fashion designer, but my lack of sewing skills provided a reality check. Now I just own a lot of clothes. Probably too many, but I do try to keep it in check. I stick to sales and thrift stores and I make sure to only buy things that can be worn a number of ways.
Enter my favorite summer tank. I have been waiting out this miserable Oregon spring for some warmer days so I can slap on the tank and not cover it in three warmer layers. It is still not quite there every day, so I decided to try to style it for a variety of spring climates and adventures.
This week is shaping up to possibly be warm enough to sans sleeves and in celebration of my farmers market opening again I couldn’t resist paring it with my favorite overalls. Anyone familiar with the 90’s classic ‘Clueless’? Every time I wear my overalls (which is a lot) I think of the line “She could be a farmer in those clothes.”. Yes. Yes I could.
We all need a good comfortable outfit for running errands. No one likes them, and hitting up endless stores in uncomfortable clothes just makes for an even worse experience. I tend to stick to boyfriend jeans and a long cardigan. Easy, cute and no need to be constantly adjusting when getting in and out of the car endlessly.
