Running Errands? This Could Help...

Even when you've punched out on Friday and seemingly have a glorious two days of nothing ahead, any woman who doesn't live in a castle knows the weekends are when the real work gets done. Maybe you've got to drop off that bundle of packages for your burgeoning eBay business or pick up your dry cleaning just in time for the evening's soiree. Perhaps you need to help a friend get through swimsuit shopping sans mental breakdown. Or, more likely, it's all of the above. But, whatever the errand, you've got to be wearing something that's as ready to get busy as you are.
And, a part of feeling prepared to tackle anything is feeling good about what you're wearing. So, when your outfit has as much style as the dish rags you're aiming to restock, you've got a problem. And, if you've ever turned down those last-minute cocktails or a surprise get-together because you're out and about in a pair of UGGs and a stained hoodie, you especially know what we mean. So, ahead, we put together a hit list of some truly stylish items that will aid you on your quest to finish off your to-do list and created five amazing outfits you'll actually want to be seen in. Staying chic on the go? Check!

A structured topcoat feels fancy, but it's comfortable, too. Pair it with statement sunnies, patterned slip-ons, and a graphic tee. (Bonus points if you slept in it, too.)

The Quilted Vest — A vest with some pockets is our gettin'-'er-done item. Not only can you easily stash all manner of receipts, cards, and keys, but this style is warm without restricting any arm movement.

To make it look cool, wear your vest with a fun oxford, distressed jeans, and a little ankle boot. Plus, any pocket spillover can be contained within a mini crossbody.

The Smock Dress — We get it. Not all of you are pants people, and for days when comfort and mobility reign supreme, a roomy smock dress that goes at least to your knees is your best bet.

A thick pair of tights will warm your legs, and a fun varsity jacket is sure to keep your upper half toasty. Carry through the athletic vibe with a great backpack and sleek high-tops. Go team!

Sneakers — The key to pulling off running shoes is to not wear your gym duds with 'em. Think real clothes in real fabrics, but in shapes that allow you to move around.

A cropped, roomy trouser and a cable-knit sweater are just as comfortable as pajamas, but they look totally fashion-forward. Balance out the softness with a stark, structured tote, and voilà! You're good to go.

The Crossbody Bag — No one has the time or the patience to deal with something else to carry. So, if you're seeking a satchel that can always be at your side and won't require you to do any yoga moves in order to access your wallet, this bag is tops.
