Shirt- Gap, Shorts- Old Navy, Sandals- Lulu's (same here, on sale $16), Bag- Lori's Shoes, Sunglasses- Forever 21
I took a little blogging break last week since I had a couple of days off work. I wanted to maximize my relaxation time without having to worry about getting my two typical posts up. I was able to shoot some outfits I have a few new posts coming your way soon!
I can't remember the last time I actually wanted to wear shorts. After years of feeling uncomfortable in shorts that were "my size," I finally realized the secret to good shorts- SIZE UP. Seriously, it is so much more comfortable to wear shorts that are a little roomier than what your standard pant size would be. I got these Old Navy distressed shorts two sizes up to accommodate for the short inseam (its only 2"), and so they would be looser on my thighs. I love them! I've been wearing them every weekend with anything from t-shirts to button ups. Basically any top I can do a half-tuck with is perfect to create that unfussy "I got dressed in 30 seconds" look.
Being as heel-obsessed as I am, I really love these sandals with their baby one and half inch heel. They are still super comfortable but give me just a little more height. I can wear them with distressed shorts, or make a sundress a little more dressy than if I paired it with flat sandals.
Dainty jewelry has been another favorite of mine recently. I'm still breaking out the statment pieces for work and dressier occasions, but with a casual look like this one, smaller jewelry is the way to go.
What's your summer uniform?
