Outfit Post: The Lazy Hippie

 Last week, The Boy's hometown buddies were here staying with us for a few nights of Portland tourism and debauchery. It's always exciting to explore and show-off the city with people who aren't from here. That's why on Friday night as we all got ready to go out- I did my best to throw on a 'Party, party! Let's hit the town' outfit: flirty short dress, blue suede pumps and bejeweled tuxedo jacket. Gameface on!

But by Saturday night... we were all exhausted: sun, beer, wine, 5-people in a one-bedroom apartment and 90+ degree weather took its toll. I wasn't about to fit into something short for our sauntering adventures. And when this happens to me- I always go hippie.
 Thankfully (yet sadly) in Portland, no one bats an eye when you rock something like this.

What's your 'I don't want to try but will fake it with this outfit' style?

This outfit is so cute. I wish I could rock the off the shoulder top like you! I would copy this whole look.

My "I don't want to try' look is a simple top, great fitting jeans and some high, fancy heels and a lot of jewelry. Nothing cray cray!

I love this look.. only I'm so petite ( ok short) I always look like I'm drowning in maxi skirts!! Your's looks lovely and I'm very jealous!

I've got 3 perfect summer dressed made of a lovely stretch that are perfect for still looking slightly dressed up but are as comfy as pyjamas!

If no one in Portland bats an eye when you rock an outfit like this then I'm moving there because damn, this is uber sexy. You look fantastic Caitlin!

Oh and I've recently decided I love the look of feather earrings.

Pat Hatt said...

Wow surely hippie but not a dippie and agree if no one bats an eye I have to move to Portland haha

Georgina said...

Haha I love it! My go-to would usually be a maxi or some kind of silky (loose) shirtdress paired with great accessories. One clothing piece and done.

Lindsey @ The Hill House said...

I love the skirt! I just bought my first maxi a few weeks ago and I LOVE it! It is perfect for the ridiculous temps we've been having.
Lately my "I don't want to try but will for you" outfit choice has been my white shorts (Kohls), a cute top, and wedge sandals. I usually wear heels, but when I'm not feeling "it", the wedges are perfect.

Erika said...

Honestly Caitlin, you look so incredible in this outfit, it's not even funny. Perfect from head to toe!

I'm all about denim when I'm in a lazy mood (or even when I'm not in a lazy mood). Cutoff denim shorts with wedges; super skinny jeans with wedges or boots. I'm a denim lover! :P

Vivek Nanda said...

Are you kidding....You loook so sexy in those outfits...I almost fell in love with you ;)

WOW !!

Haha I happen to love the lazy hippie look. It may be because I'm lazy. And love being comfortable.

Love the earrings! Mine is tshirt, jeans, scarf. Which is also just my go to/day to day/errands outfit.

Mandee said...

it's funny to me that some of your readers are going to be surprised that your outfit was totally normal:) oh Portland.

Slamdunk said...

Fantastic.

You pull these outfits off so well Miss Caitlin, we really don't believe you when you tell us about your daytime desk job.

On the link you left. Ha, I had not seen that guy with his mascot probs. I doubt there will be many volunteers in costume anywhere near him when he faces future races.

This look is gorgeous to the max!

Dude I'm hippie all the way! You look RAD in that skirt. Nice find!

You look freakin' adorable! I don't see any "lazyness" in this outfit, very well put together. Is the tshirt a diy? I don't remember ON having ts like these, they should do, my cutting skills are not that great. I need a maxi skirt, a flow one that hides my tummy. I have a straight one, kinda like a pencil cut, yeah not cute.

& OMFG! I freaked out alil when I read your friend is a BUYER for MACYS! So freakin' cool! I kinda wanna stalk your friend now...For the last several years, being a buyer for Macys has been the dream/goal. I have add friends apply at Macys, they never got a call back, I never applied, but I am super sacred too. My friends, they actually have retail experiences, which I don't. I don't wanna be turned down from Macys, that will just crush me. I am waiting until I have my BA degree to apply at Macys. So cool about your friend, hopefully that's me in few (or more) years.

Ah, I love this version of hippie! It looks great on you!! And I love doing touristy things in my own city, I think it reminds me of why I love this city so much, too many options out there here to do and see, always.

Camille said...

Ohh, I love that!!!! I'm wearing a big white skirt that's free flowy and reminds me of Little House on the Prairie. Does that count as faking it?? Just call me Laura Ingles ;) lol
