Errand Day

My weekends are always full of running errands. As I'm writing this I'm sitting at the auto place hoping my leaky tire can be fixed and doesn't need to be replaced. It's another 100 degree day, and I really feel it when I'm getting in and out of the car all day. It's tempting to wear shorts and t-shirts on days like this, but then I hear Stacy London (do you remember that show, "What Not to Wear"?) in my head telling me you can be cool and comfortable and still look put together.

I also hear my mother telling me to "dress nicely, because people treat you better when you look nice." Which is true, the auto repair guy just gave me a cold bottle of water.  So, I'm still wearing shorts to be cool and comfortable, but they are a tailored pair with a flat front and a breezy tropical pattern. Instead of tennis shoes I'm in cute gold wedges (styled before here, and Deborah from Fabulous After 40 just did a great post about metallic sandals) that are still comfortable, and even cooler than tennis shoes. I swapped a t-shirt (to be honest I did look for my red t-shirt but it is in the wash) for a short sleeved blouse, that I usually classify as work wear. My matching cross body purse, and a statement necklace in a neutral color finishes the look. I'm cool and comfortable, and if I happen to run into a client I won't have to duck or hide! Stacy London and my mom would be so proud.
