When Life Gets Busy, Sometimes You Have to Do an Outfit Shoot En Route to Breakfast

As you all know, the past couple weeks have been a bit chaotic with Hampden’s health issues (still an issue), traveling to Annapolis and Minneapolis, and then frantically cleaning out and packing this past weekend due to a false alarm regarding our move possibly getting moved up two weeks. Add in a sinus infection on my end and lots and lots of blog content that I need to get up ASAP, and I’ve been squeezing in productivity whenever I’ve got the time and energy. 

On Saturday, it was a quick shoot when I spotted this wall while walking to grab breakfast. Adam, serving as my reluctant photographer, asked me if it was too “gritty.” I had to remind him I’m an urban millenial and gritty goes with my aesthetic, duh. It’s all about contrast.

I love that this outfit has a casual, all-American, summer vibe. Lightweight stripes tucked effortlessly (I can refer to my own look as effortless, right?! That’s what I was very effortfully aiming for!) into classic light wash jean shorts is the perfect summer outfit for everything from the farmer’s market to brunch to sitting outside at a beer garden. 

I’ve rounded up a whole slew of options for the shorts and shirt for you in the images below. Whether you’re looking to save, splurge, or just add a piece you’ll wear again and again to your wardrobe, there’s definitely an option for you.
