Puttin' on the RItz

Sometimes I think simple outfits can be the most elegant. Saturday night we went over to a friend's house for a backyard barbecue. Anytime I am outside I am like an "All You Can Eat" buffet for mosquitoes, so I decided to wear a very lightweight pair of chambray pants to protect my legs.To dress up a plain white tee and jeans, I added one of my favorite statement necklaces.

White T-Shirt- Target (similar)
Chambray pants - New York & Co (old, similar here, here)
Cork Sandals- Cato's (no website-similar, similar)
Jewelry- Premier Designs
I've been looking for a pair of cork sandals for a couple of months now, so I was very pleased to find this pair with gold medallions at my local Cato's! I am loving the cork look, super laid back and casual, but the gold dresses it up, just like the jewelry dresses up the basic outfit! I just can't be bothered to fuss too much with hair and makeup and clothes when it's so hot outside, you know?

Speaking of hot, you only have a few more days to enter to win a pair of Bandelettes to prevent inner thigh chafing all summer long! Check out my original post for all the details and your chance to win!

I like this! You are right. Sometimes, I think we expect just because we're bloggers we have to over-style every outfit! Pile on the accessories, etc. This is just right for a mosquito buffet!

Mosquitos love you? You and me both, sister. I hope you made it out alive!

Love the jeans! I think I need a pair in my wardrobe. Mosquitoes love me too. Can't get away from it even with repellent.

Ughhh, add me to the mosquito buffet. My sister said that eating a lot of carbs attracts them to you, but clearly I'm not going to go Atkins just to save myself from bug bites, so que sera sera. Lightweight pants or a maxi is the way to go!

Those pants look so comfy! I love the gold sandals and necklace. They add a little spice to the simple outfit.

Love it! Simple outfits are the best. You look classy and elegant :)

Soo chic! Those pants, that top and those necklaces are a great combo. You must've been the most stylish one at the bbq.

Ouch, I can see your peeling sunburn! I'm also glad you didn't photoshop it out ;)

I'm a big fan of simpler outfits like this! They're easy and cute and perfect for hot days :)

I love how the "simple" outfits end up being the most chic! This is certainly the case with you my dear! I love the pants on you!
