What I wore – Keeping it Simple

I went out to Carroll Creek Park in downtown Frederick yesterday and ummm it’s a whole entire vibe. The sun was shining, people were smiling, a harpist was playing, and the mood was awesome.

Carroll Creek Park is speckled with eateries, shops, places to get adult beverages, sweets, pastries, and ice cream. And smack down the middle of the park is, you guessed it, a creek. On a sunny Sunday afternoon, it was the perfect place to be! Check out my IG reel to see just how lovely it is!

I wasn’t sure what to expect from the area, and I wasn’t sure what our itinerary would involve, so I opted for a casual jeans (American Eagle by way of Plato’s Closet – a local resale store) and Hug Life Culture tee (my brand). I paired them with my denim and navy J. Crew x New Balance sneakers (by way of #poshmark) which are the most perfect throw-on kick for any wardrobe.

I’m not sure if I liked wearing the sneakers more because they are so cute and comfortable, or wearing a tshirt from my brand which i got several compliments on. That is such a total boost!

I polished off the outfit with my own beaded bracelet stack which I crafted, a Swarovski tennis bracelet, a gold-toned heart necklace from Walmart, and my new favorite tassel earrings which I got on clearance from Walmart. Oh, and of course, my Ray Bans.

I’m such a strong proponent for keeping things simple. You cannot go wrong with something that makes you feel comfortable and confident. Flattering fit jeans, cute sneakers, and a tee that you can accessories however you see fit…that’s a perfect outfit for a day out and about.

What I wore:

Shirt – Hug Life Culture
Jeans – American Eagle by way of Plato’s Closet
Shoes – New Balance x JCrew by way of Poshmark
Shades – Ray Ban (with prescription)

Necklace and earrings – Walmart
Bracelets – Crafter by me

What’s your favorite go-to outfit? Are you a sneaker girl or is another shoe your jam for being out and about?
