I’ll start by saying this is a little bit of the sweaty girls guide to summer. As simple as it would be to wear denim shorts & a tee at all times, it gets HOT in New York state. I mean, sticky sweaty swampy hot, underboob & crotch sweat hot, if you live in NY you should be shaking your head yes as you read this. A lot of what’s hot in fashion these days makes it easy to wear a thin layer of flowy cotton with no bra, I can’t say I’m complaining.
I’m a hat person. I can’t deny it. They’re so essential for so many reasons. Bad hair day? Hat. Sun in your face? Hat. Need to vamp up a boring outfit? Hat.
Shoes & dress & necklace: Forever 21
I am a cheap, bargain shopper. This makes it easy to have a wide variety of clothes, hats, jewelry & shoes to mix and match with simple pieces like this flowy dress. I tied the bottom because well, it’s in.
Only a few of the pieces in this post are new. If you buy stuff here and there, that are neutral in color you can reuse them, for instance, the hat & shoes in the next post are years old.
Hat: J. Crew
Tank: Forever 21
Skirt: Hollister, for 14 dollars on clearance. Score.
I love wearing breathable clothes. Something about jean shorts & my butt doesn’t mix and match. Every pair of denim shorts I’ve bought in the last 4 years RIDE UP. I can’t be bothered to pick my wedgie and adjust my shorts every 5 min when its 95 degrees outside.
The dress in the next post is silk & feels like you’re wearing practically nothing. It’s perfect for hot days with low humidity.
Necklace: Forever 21
Booties: Old navy
Dress: Hollister, 9 dollars. I typically don’t shop here but a friend told me they actually have really great deals in the clearance section. She was clearly right.
I wore this yesterday with a light long cardigan and was super comfortable & received a compliment from a stranger : )
Quick shout out to Curology for helping me gain control over my skin. I’m so happy with it.
Lastly, flowy shorts. I wear shorts in the summer, just not a ton of denim. I prefer dresses & rompers in the summertime because of their materials & thinness but I also have been able to find a few comfortable materials of shorts over the years as well. Also, yes, I have cellulite. I don’t mind : )
Shorts: Pac Sun, I should have ironed these before these pictures lol.
Choker & crop: Forever 21
Shoes: Target, never underestimate targets shoe section. I love their shoes.
Hope y’all get some ideas for your next shopping trip from this post : )
