HOW WE WORE IT // summer comfy casual

My summer comfy casual this year can roughly be described as buffet shirt + hat + skinny jeans + sandals.  Right now since we are road tripping, you can add + suitcase wrinkles into that equation too 😉 .  I affectionately call these tunic style or swing shirts buffet shirts because you could over eat at a buffet and still wear the shirt comfortably… I say this with humor, but seriously.  As for hats, I have tons of baby hairs growing in because my hair is coming back thanks to some love from modern medicine.

We took these photos in front of my family’s barn; I’m kind of loving my Dad’s hubcap art installation.

My comfy summer casual outfit for the summer! I love swing shirts, a bright purse, sandals, a sun hat, and flip flops. It keeps my cool in the Georgia heat! #howweworeit | via The Spirited VioletMy comfy summer casual outfit for the summer! I love swing shirts, a bright purse, sandals, a sun hat, and flip flops.

I enjoy doing the how we wore it outfit collaboration hosted by Deidre.  You’re welcome to go to her blog and sign up! 🙂  This month’s theme was comfy casual which is something I know a lot about.  The outfit inspiration was from Gentri Lee below.  She has a lot edgier of style than I do and I would fry if I wore black in the south right now so I opted for my normal comfy casual.

I can’t believe how fast this summer is going already.  I’m enjoying all of this time with Devin so much and eating camp fire dinners with family every night.  This will definitely be one to remember!
