My Go-To Summer Wardrobe Staple

White Skirt from Zara

I love Summer for many reasons with one of them being, white skirts!! White shorts, white jeans, white tees…all of these get way more play in my daily look when it’s hot and sunny out.

Summer Wardrobe Staple

This high-waisted white miniskirt from Zara has been one of my favorites since 2015.  Unfortunately I have a knack for dirtying white clothes every time I wear them.  When I wore this skirt for the first time a few years ago, I did silent disco in a sandy field and ended up muddying it up with yellow stains.  After months and months of bleaching it a million times, I finally got the white color back so it looks almost as good as new.

I love pairing white with a bold girly color, like with this pink crop top.  I tied the whole look together with white, pink, and grey sandals from Aldo.

Miniskirts aren’t always the most convenient in the Summer, especially if you end up playing life-size Jenga at a bar, but I always do my best to keep things lady-like. Before this we had the most amazing Chinese food so I’m surprised the skirt still fit at that moment, but there’s no questioning miracles right?

I’ve embraced crop tops in the past couple Summers because I’m all for the motto, “the less clothes the better” …at least in the summer when it’s a balmy 90 degrees!

Simple Summer Outfit Ideas

navy tank top

Finally warm weather is upon us! The other day when I was out in the evening with this tank top on, that’s when I realized winter is officially over…it took long enough!

Keep it Simple

For the above look, I took two different tones of navy to create a simple and flirty look.  Although you can’t see it that well, I put a flower in my hair to make the look a bit more tropical – we were going to a tiki bar that night!

I kept my shoes simple because I wanted my outfit to be the center of attention.  When you want the outfit to really be the star, consider putting your hair in a bun, especially if you have really long hair.  It was a hot night, so I kept my hair off my shoulders so I could feel the breeze on my shoulders.

Accessorize Minimally

For this look I wore my Gucci sunglasses, a watch, diamond stud earrings, beige hair clip flower, simple dancing diamond pink necklace, and a few rings.  The hot weather always makes me want to wear less.  I like keeping my prep time as short as possible so the less I put on, the better.

Three Ways to Wear Summer Grunge

My summer style is often defined by whatever’s easiest to throw on and cover up as little of my body as possible.  Crop tops, off-the-shoulder tops, and cut-out tops make any look a bit grungier.

While I wouldn’t call myself a huge baseball fan, baseball caps are my summer go-to when I’m trying to hide from the sun.  If you’re like me and not one of those lucky people who tan well, baseball caps should be the base point of any look you create.

Wearing jewelry in the summer is great because it’s less likely to be hidden behind your long sleeve tops and sweaters.  Short shorts are never a bad idea on the weekends.  Jean shorts are one of the most versatile summer items you could own.  For an extra grungy look, find a pair with rips and roughly cut edges.
