My Summer Wardrobe Essentials

BANGS Shoes 14

It’s been a LONG time since I posted a real live outfit post, but I’m lucky enough to work with a very talented photographer and friend, Sarah, and she kindly offered to help me shoot this look — so here we go! If you run into me on a weekday in the summer, changes are HIGH that I will be wearing something along the lines of this look. Breezy summer dress: Check. Comfortable, walking-friendly shoes: Check. Hair pulled up because it’s just too damn hot: Check. This was one of the good days too — I actually remembered to shower, put on a lip stain, and put on my watch for once. [Pats self on the back.]

I don’t know if you guys know this, but with my (usually) daily commute back and forth between Baltimore, where I live, and DC, where I work, I’ve had to get the comfort thing down to an art. When I’m running on schedule, I usually try to walk the two miles from the train station to my office — and when I’m feeling particularly ambitious, I walk the two miles back at the end of the day too. This is mostly because my busy schedule doesn’t leave much time (or motivation) for working out — and walking’s better than nothing — but I also just honestly enjoy the routine. Step one) Plug in recent podcast find or go-to playlist; Step two) Put those speed walking skills to work.

With the extra influx of speed walking (no really, I can’t seem to walk at any other speed), I’ve found myself seeking the most comfortable, comfortable, comfortable shoes more than I ever did before. When the team at BANGS shoes reached out to me about trying out a pair of the brand’s urban kicks, I knew it was worth a shot — but I didn’t anticipate the fit being quite so great, or the color of this particular pair being quite so sleek (now to keep them clean…). These are shoes for everyday, for an impromptu hiking adventure, for a lazy sundown walk after work. PLUS, I’m a sucker for brands that put giving back the forefront of what they’re all about. I’m already trying to decide which darker pair I’ll add to my closet for fall!
