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!

I’m a big fan of t-shirt dresses. They’re comfy, yet stylish – perfect for those days when you want to look like you tried without actually trying. Like I said, big fan.

But sometimes, t-shirt dresses get monotonous. I mean, it gets to the point where you say to yourself, “yeah, that’s cute, but it looks like one I have at home.” This is where your updated version comes in.

Browsing through Francesca’s at the mall with my friend, I spotted this satin version. Right away, my interest was piqued. I picked it up in black first, but when my friend pointed out that it came in a pale pink? I was completely sold. I needed to own this dress.

This dress was the answer to my prayers – still comfy and cute, but also standing out from the rest of the boring cotton t-shirt dresses. While I still love the cotton versions, there is just something about a satin, pink t-shirt dress that feels whimsical. (Also, this dress comes in black, navy, and a gorgeous silver color as well).

On another note, I’ve been wearing these gray sandals nonstop since I got them. They are so easy to slip on and they go with almost everything. They’re completely sold out on Topshop’s website, so head over to Nordstrom and get them before they’re gone!

Hope everyone has a warm and sunny rest of the week (it’s been raining and gloomy where I am)! See you next Wednesday 🙂
