Where: Shopping in Nashville
Why: Here’s what I wore to do a little shopping in Nashville, specifically the South 12th street area. It was humid with temps in the high 90s which meant feeling (and looking) cool was a must. But honestly, it’s just really hard when you’re instantly sticky and sweaty the second you step outside. The heat didn’t damper my fun (see also: buying jeans at imogene + willie) but it definitely made me slow down a bit.
All that said, I love this outfit. I’ve been wearing these shorts all summer and same with the shirt. It’s sort a summer tradition of mine to cut off some of my pants into shorts (like I did last year with this coral pair). Here’s how to do it yourself. I’ve worn this top SO much more as a short sleeve version than a long one, so I don’t regret getting scissor happy! Have you ever shortened or altered something to make it more summery?
Thank you to Chelsea Sanders for all of these wonderful photos.
