Officially OOO (Out Of Office)

Dressing for the Holiday weekend with Hampden
Filed Under > #OOTD (Outfit of the Day)

Long holiday weekends have always been my favorite kind of weekends.  I’m sure I’m not alone in this. But unlike many, I rarely spend holiday weekends out of town. Instead, I opt for the quiet of the city while everyone is opting for the busyness of the beach.

So what do I do then when a four day weekend arrives?  A whole lot of nothing and everything at the same time.  I don’t really make plans, I just let the wind blow me where it will.  Usually the “wind” ends up blowing me towards a combination of eating, shopping, leisurely strolling, and some sort of home reno project.  

Which means whatever I’m wearing this weekend it has to be comfortable and ready for anything.  For me that means some sort of tennis shoe, shorts, and a cute tee or sweatshirt. All which I recently snagged at one of my favorite boutiques, Hampden Clothing.

If you’ve never heard of Hampden let me just change your shopping life now.  Hampden, a 4,000 square foot speciality clothing and accessories boutiques, resides on historic King Street in Charleston, South Carolina.  Owned by the lovely Stacy Smallwood who has the best eye for up-and-coming, as well as established designers. 

I’m a huge fan of Hampden because I can find truly unique pieces and my favorite staples all in one place. Stacy introduced me to my favorite shoe brand ever, Golden Goose, and all the pieces I’ve gotten from her are some of my most favorite and most unique. Plus I love supporting another small, female run business owner.  Just follow along on Hampden’s Instagram and you’ll quickly see what I mean about Hampden’s selection and Stacy’s passion.  

Today’s outfit is a perfect case study in what I just said.  The Holiday sweatshirt is a new-to-me brand that I’ve quickly fallen in love with.  Also available in pink and t-shirt form, I’ll be wearing Holiday well past the holiday weekend. 

My beyond comfortable shoes are Loeffler Randall, a classic closet staple brand for me. And psst….they’re on sale right now!

Then there’s of course the best part of this outfit; my Stella McCartney shorts. Yes they are a splurge, but so worth it.  These shorts will never go out of style, plus they can easily be styled with heels and a silky blouse or off the shoulder top for a night out, or worn everyday as shown here. 

Lastly, pair all of this with my Truss bag, which is also on sale, and you’ve got a complete ensemble you can wear together or pull apart. An ensemble you’ll likely see me in all weekend long! Happy Memorial Day friends!  Truly, MKR

P.S. Make sure you’re signed up for Hampden’s newsletter so you can see all of my favorite Hampden pieces.
