While we reserve the right to dress down on our days off, we'd rather not succumb to our sweats when venturing outdoors. We're looking for something easy and effortlessly cool — and we're getting exactly what we want in Eva Mendes's latest look. The actress styled up a take on lighter denim that toes the line between pulled-together and totally laid-back.

We've rounded up all the key pieces below; just shop them to get the look.
