When the days are too busy to coordinate, you might like this look. Gina’s comfy girl style is all about not matching. Her printed dress and her distressed combat boots are just mere accents to her favorite accessory: tights. Gina’s effortless style is definitely a remedy for the hustle and bustle of a Baltimore summer.

The length of a Maxi dress can sometimes disguise your shape. An above-the-knee number gives you that fem look without hiding your legs. This patterned short-sleeved dress offers comfort and a super cute look for any P.Y.T. and the best part is that these dresses can be paired with nearly any kind of shoe. You can find patterned dresses like this at stores like Forever 21 for $22.90.

Add a little more dimension to any look by adding a colored tight or fancy stocking. This can bring color into your outfit or make your effortless outfit look like it was thoughtfully planned out. Hue tights are sold at most department stores like Macy’s for around $9 a pair.

It was no battle getting the combat boot in style. People easily connect with the grungy look that’s fashionable and find the pair much more comfortable than a thin sandal or an ankle-breaking heel. Even in the heat, women all over Baltimore are stepping out booted up and ready to take on the daily grind. Good combat boots are hard to come by but Free People has a dirty little pair I think you might like for $168.

This look needs a few accents. A trendy pouch that you can swing across your chest is the perfect accent and won’t crowd the outfit like a big, bulky bag would. This chocolate leather purse adds a neutral color to the busy dress and colorful tights. The bags can be found anywhere but Urban Outfitters created this cute one and purchasing it won’t break the bank at $38.

A pair of round sunglasses keeps that cute look that you’re going for when copying Gina’s style. The round frames compliment a head full of hair or full cheeks. Aldo had these brown speckled shades for only $12!
