We’re a week away from welcoming summer but the weather is already piquing. This is an outfit I put together to reflect the temps!
I forgot all about these polka dot shorts until I switched out my seasonal clothes and found them in a tub. I never used to be a believer in storing your clothes but it’s kind of fun to be surprised with gems like these when the seasons change. It’s like unearthing a whole new wardrobe! (Plus it keeps your closet clutter in control!)
Needless to say, spring cleaning has left my closet with the perfect staples to build cute summer outfits.
These shorts are the perfect mint green to go with a lot of items in my closet. I’m not sure if I’ve worn them on my blog before but I decided to create a really simple outfit around them. Your brain moves a little slower in the heat so outfits that take no thought are the best!
All I really had to do was pair them with a top in a similar color story. This rainbow striped crop top is a favorite for me so it was a no-brainer.
I chose the backpack since I like to carry it + a purse around for summer adventures. It just happened to match these brown shoes exactly and BOOM!, a great summer outfit was born.
My latest accessory obsession is temporary tattoos. I have a whole collection that have been sitting around for years just waiting to be worn. This week I’m wearing Beyoncé! I feel a little jolt of inspiration when I look at my wrist and see Queen B staring back. It’s easy to see now the power that tattoos have! (Just to be clear, I have no interest in getting a real tattoo but fake ones are fun!)
I think I’m ready to slay summer! What about you?
