We spent last weekend at the coast, and it was delightful. We poked around at a flea market, finding all kinds of wonderful bargains. We had a lovely lunch at one of our favorite restaurants. And we relaxed and climbed the rocks at one of the nicest stretches of the Maine coastline.


I knew we would be doing some walking and exploring, so I dressed accordingly. I chose to wear a comfy knit swing dress from Old Navy. This dress drapes so nicely and the shape is very flattering for a variety of body types. The neutral gray tone of the dress makes it easy to dress it up or down, depending on the occasion. It’s an extremely easy piece to wear.


Along with the dress, which is just a tad too short for me to feel comfortable wearing on its own, I wore a pair of boyfriend jeans. (I’ve become slightly addicted to the dress-with-pants trend.) These jeans are relaxed enough to make them super comfortable without making them baggy. I rolled to legs a few times to make them cropped, which gives them a fun, casual vibe I really love.

The cool sea breezes made a cardigan a necessary addition to the outfit. This cardigan also came from Old Navy and is one of the most versatile items in my wardrobe. The fit, the shape, the pockets—I love it all! As for the shoes, my casual flats rounded out the outfit. A long beaded necklace gave it a hint of polish and brought interest to the simple dress.

This was the perfect look for a relaxed day of beach combing and sight seeing. (Incidentally, and completely by accident, all the clothing items in this outfit came from Old Navy!)
