Lily Collins Takes Running Errands To Fashionable New Heights

You put a fair amount of effort into concocting the perfect weekend wardrobe: pulling out all the stops for a Friday night out, turning it down a (slight) notch for a dressy Saturday brunch with friends, then keeping it casual for a Saturday hangout at a neighborhood haunt. By the time Sunday rolls around, you're at your lazy-day finest, conserving all your energy for the week ahead. But, Sunday is also errand day, which means we all rally into our most lived-in boyfriend jeans and molded-to-our-feet sandals to check all the items off our list. As it turns out, Lily Collins shares this end-of-weekend dilemma. And, she manages to elevate these staples to go from brunch to Target in one fell (and fashionable) swoop. As if Collins' tendency to Instagram her snacks and her soft spot for Richard Curtis flicks didn't make her relatable enough, Lily's errand-running wardrobe makes us feel like downright bosom buddies. The actress was spotted on-the-go on Sunday, reusable grocery bag in tow, wearing an expectedly casual ensemble of boyfriend jeans, a chambray shirt (wrapped around her waist), and strappy sandals. Her striped poplin top from Elizabeth and James, with its cropped fit and slightly-flared hem, gave the look a playful, feminine touch, while a Givenchy shoulder bag added a bit of Hollywood glamour — let's not forget she is, in fact, a movie star. We may not share her extensive IMDb page, but we can certainly borrow a trick or two from Ms. Collins about how to play up our weekend wear. Swapping the plain, white T-shirt for a peplum-esque top, paired with a sleek leather crossbody, easily elevates our go-tos. See how you can copy Lily's look, below.
