On the hunt for some everyday tops and dresses that can be worn everyday in some serious Florida heat; two kiddos, zero time, need a grab-and-go wardrobe that works quickly and looks pulled together
My BIG 6 style descriptors for where I see you going: 1. UNCOMPLICATED, 2. FREE SPIRIT, 3. SOFT, 4. GRAB & GO, 5. WARM, 6. ORIGINAL

THE OUTFIT INSPIRATION:
I like to put in a couple of visuals to get things warmed up and show you what I'm thinking. The items I put in here are for inspiration mainly, but you can shop by clicking on the links.
Enjoy! Then check out your shopping list below...
LOOK 1 NOTES & LINKS:
- I love the idea of a shirt dress cinched in at the waist; there's coverage, keep it cool with lightweight cotton, go with a flat sandal and just update the look using a few key accessories
LOOK 2 NOTES & LINKS:
- This look is about leveraging a couple of new tops you get and keeping things simple by pairing them with denim whether it's a distressed boyfriend jean, a go-to skinny jean, or a boot cut jean
- The bucket bag goes cross-body and allows you to go hands-free which is a huge plus
YOUR RUNNING SHOPPING LIST:
**scroll to the right if you're on your mobile
- I found a bunch of tops and several dresses as well. Some go over budget, but very few. I wanted you to see what I was thinking of, so you get a sense of the silhouette and then can go off on your own from there if you need to or I can set sale alerts for you too
- I kept things flowy, lightweight, and not too loud as far as print is concerned
- You'll definitely see some boho edge in there but nothing too far overboard because I want you to be able to wear these for more than one season!
