First things first, I was having a really good hair day! :P This outfit is absolutely perfect if you are trying to go for a casual look. Whether you are strolling in the park, out for brunch, or on a summer vacation go for this comfy and cool summer outfit.
To recreate the look, try a very light button up shirt or blouse (Ruffle Neck Shirt), a straw hat -- here is a better version of mine also from H&M (Straw Hat), a light-wash short, some sunnies, and a pink lip. To compliment my look, I wore black espadrilles (I have linked a few pairs below).
I got this whole outfit for under $100 and since these are all simple transitional pieces, I can pair the shirt with either jeans, leggings, or a skirt and the shorts with an off-the-shoulder top and put together a few other outfit options.
I love how these shorts feel and look. They are the right length and are stretchy enough to contour to your body, giving it a nice look in all the right places :) Shorts are from AEO (Denim Midi Short) and the shades are very inexpensive from Forever 21 (Oversized Round Sunglasses)
The tie-up espadrilles are my absolute fave!
My across the street neighbor in Peru, manufactured espadrilles. Their daughter was one of my best friends so you can imagine I lived in espadrilles. I've been wearing espadrilles since before they were a thing. There is this pair I absolutely love that my friend gifted me when I visited her last year, I will show them off on another post :)
I wore this black pair that I got from Forever 21 for only $19 and I have gotten so many compliments. They are my favorite for the summer. Here are some similar pairs since mine are sold out (Black & White Lace Up Espadrilles) (Flat Rosette Espadrilles) (Ballet Espadrilles) (Denim Espadrille)
