Favorite Wears: Summer Athliesure


Warmer temps are not cooling my love for athliesure.  These pants are all mesh in back, so wearing them to work out or just on a hot day still super doable despite the warmer temps.  I layered a dress on over to wear as a top, but you could easily wear as cocktail dress with heels by night, or as a casual dress with sandals by day.  

This dress - worn as a top - is by Tobi, which new customers can get 50% off their first order!  They have really cute Midi DressesJumpsuitsSkirtsMaxi DressesRompers and more.  I love nothing more than dresses for summer - especially when you can also wear them as a shirt, dress them up and dress them down.

Favorite Wears: Stripe Ruffles

I have worn this shirt already 4 times since getting it 2 weeks ago.  It's the perfect addition to my stripe top collection since the sleeves add it's own unique look, making it unlike anything I already have!  It is really comfortable, too, and the arms are lose allowing ample airflow for the warmer months ahead, or the perfect amount of coverage for the cooler nights we're having now (they also have a dress version which is calling my name).
Overall, this outfit is super simple, but the sleeves really add something to keep it from being boring.  I wore this outfit out for a friends birthday party. We did one of those escape rooms (if you are in the Kansas City area - we did this one), where you are locked in a room and given clues to make your way out. Our room was a Da Vinci theme and we had to find the hidden grail. We did boys vs. girls and the girls made it out in 50 minutes.  Let's just say we won, and it's a sore subject. ;)

Favorite Wears: Floral Skirt

This maxi skirt is the most comfy! Slip on, and the slits on each side help keep you cool for summer wearing.  It's also a really great travel piece, and in fact, this whole outfit is the perfect travel outfit.  It's super comfortable, and the tank is another that is actually a workout tank, but can easily double as a real shirt.  

My crazy summer travel has officially begun.  I have a lot of work and personal travel now through July - so it's all about investing in pieces I can wear several times with different things, that are comfortable and layered for different temperatures.  

I'm in the middle of a 3-city tour of Tennessee for work. You can see on Snapchat (ChasingDavies) and Instagram more - but we're putting on some really cool intimate concerts with 4 different artists in 3 different key TN cities and live-streaming them to a busy street corner in Chicago.  This is my job, and I'm feeling pretty lucky about it right now, because last night I got to see Jason Isbell up close on the Country Music Hall of Fame stage perform. I'm a huge fan of his lyrics and songs. His wife plays the fiddle and sings with him, and their love for each other is super apparent and sweet.

Anyways, I need lots more travel comfy, but cute outfit pieces for all my upcoming trips - any suggestions?
