polka dots & chaco days

At any time during the summer that I'm not required to be in work clothes, you will find me in shorts and a t-shirt. That's just how I roll. I value comfort over style, but really try to find ways to mesh the two so I don't end up in one of those "people of walmart" photos. Yikes!

Also, I wear my Chacos every day of my life and with just about anything. They are comfortable and you never know when you might need to embark on a spontaneous hiking adventure. As the boy scouts (AKA my dad) continually say, "always be prepared."

Me too!! It's the only place I've found that has pants and shorts that fit me really well! I feel like they've been making both a little shorter though. These shorts are a Tall and I had to get a Tall in the last pair of jeans I got there. But I always buy on sale (they are ALWAYS having a sale) which is nice because I can't pay $80 for a pair of jeans. ;)

Love your style! I also value comfort over style so this is exactly what I wear during the warmer months. I live in a big city but I still wear my chacos everywhere. They are perfect for hiking but also perfect for walking around on concrete for hours :D I am not a huge fan of color (although I love your polka dot shirt) so most of my clothes are white, navy, grey, tan...basically neutral colors with the occasional pop of color. Makes dressing so much easier!
