I like that her outfit is a more unexpected pairing. You get this casual, easy feeling from the shorts combined with something that’s a little bit more polished and structured. It’s an interesting mix, if you’re shopping with your friends or out to dinner.” “This one is worn by a stylist named Sara. She wore it with a sleeveless, oversize button-down, a mesh knit sweater, and a hat. You can wear this look to the farmers’ market or for your weekend errands in the city. We have beach looks and city looks!”
