I have a love/hate relationship with running errands. On one hand, it probably means I'm taking a side trip to Target to buy some cute homeware I'll never need. On another, well, they're errands. I'm that girl who refuses to wear sweatpants even on a grocery run, so today I'm sharing with you a fail-proof outfit for that seemingly effortless errand look.
Tip #1: Comfort first. The wintertime provides the perfect opportunity to cozy up in a heavy, oversized sweater. I've layered mine over a basic turtleneck to keep extra warm and avoid lugging the weight of a wool coat. That's where the loafers come in handy -- to make the frigid run to and from the parking lot without a coat just a bit easier. But in all seriousness, these loafers are probably the second best footwear choice for convenience just after sneakers.
Handbag choice can make or break the ease of your errand run. When I lived in the city, an empty backpack was the key to that rainy day Trader Joe's run. Even in the suburbs, I prefer to stay hands free to avoid any fuss or uncomfortable weight. You know you've had a long day when your bag leaves a bright red indent on the inside of your elbow. Since I no longer need the compartment space of a Jansport backpack, I opt for this adorable piece from Sorial that holds just what I need for everyday use. And there you have it -- my excessive (but totally necessary) thought process behind a grocery store outfit. Call it overthinking, but I'll say it's dedication to style.
