When we spy The Perfect Outfit, two things happen: We feel a tiny hint of envy, and we take copious mental notes on how to recreate it. Enter Carly Phillips, the D.C. manager for menswear brand Michael Andrews Bespoke. Her adorable, made-for-the-weekend ensemble struck us as equally cool, comfy, and casual, and we couldn't wait to give it a try. Plus, it's perfect for the not-so-scorching days ahead — they're on the horizon, we promise!
To recreate Phillips' spot-on style, we opted for coated denim, a silk shirt in a bold hue, and a classic jean jacket (optional, if it's really sticky out). Some cat-eye sunnies, a stone bangle, and the perfect pair of silver oxfords complete the look.
