Summertime is long gone, but I wanted to share a simple outfit worn for a boat ride I went to in Sheepshead Bay in late August.
The boat ride was on a Sunday evening around the Jamaica Bay; nothing spectacular, but it was a lovely site the few min I went outside. Not only was I recovering from a cold, the week prior was pretty busy for me: I attended a Meet n Greet with Africa Miranda, went to Trials n’ Tresses‘ first event, had dinner uptown with friends and a family BBQ. (No wonder I forgot about my agreement to go). Since I am a woman of my word, I still went. I had no time to get anything so I made what I had work.
Shirt: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target – Target
Shorts: The Flirt Denim Bermudas – Old Navy
Shoes: Joe’s Jeans Marcy Sandals – DSW
Sunglasses: Coach (prescription) – Cohens Optical
Bag: Juicy Couture Sophia Studded mini – Juicycouture.com
Earrings: Ralph Lauren studs – Macy’s
As mentioned, I was sick. I didn’t feel like applying so my makeup was super simple.
Despite me not feeling it or being “glammed up”, I received many compliments. It actually felt good to not have to purchase something new for a specific occasion; I should do this more often.
Do you usually go out to purchase a new outfit for an event or use what’s in your closet?
