Summer evenings are my absolute favourite time of day. Because we live so close to the water, we like to go for evening walks and take advantage of all the waterfront has to offer. I put together this outfit of items from Bench for a casual night out last week. We grabbed a drink on a patio nearby, and then walked along the water home.
Bench has been a brand that I have always come back to over the years. I remember in high school saving for an olive green hoodie with the word Bench. in lime green written down the arm. I was so proud of it and felt cool every time I wore it. Last week I was looking for a comfortable outfit that I could dress up a bit and these Bench items fit the bill perfectly. I love the soft skirt and loose shirt together. The pieces are comfortable, but feminine. The jacket adds the perfect pop of colour and structure and is a great thickness for summer evenings or fall days. When I first tried this jacket on and saw the back neckline in the mirror I had the same cool feelings all over again – as when I wore my first Bench hoodie back in high school. I knew I had to get it!
The best part about this skirt?! It’s a maxi skirt too! I was so surprised when I realized that you could button the hem to wear this skirt short or long. SUCH a great idea! Oh yeah…it also just went on sale!
