When it comes to a summer outfit, comfort is key. I think of loose, breezy silhouettes and light fabrics. And this outfit has it all! Both the sweatshirt and the shorts are from Aerie, and I have to say that is one brand that does casual well. I just happened to stumble into the store last week while shopping with a friend and hit the jackpot! My sweatshirt and shorts were both on sale for 25% off. As soon as I tried the outfit on I knew I had to have it (for both pieces I only spent $43 total!). I actually liked both pieces so much, I went back with my mom and got the sweatshirt in another color, and a similar pair of shorts.
Another aspect of the outfit that screams summer to me is the neutral color palette. I loved the white paired with a light khaki color and immediately imagined the outfit with my leopard slides. This is the kind of color palette that is perfect for the beach — or the farmer’s market, which is where I shot this outfit.
Because comfort is the point of this outfit, I wore my go-to cream colored bralette underneath. Then I added my new pair of light pink resin earrings (I’m obsessed!), which gave the outfit some color. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to check out my post on resin earrings.
One final thought — not only do I think this casual summer outfit is too cute, I felt like I was wearing pjs all day!
