If there’s one outfit that can stand as your go-to summer uniform, it’s this one. Each item of this outfit is a well-loved piece in my closet. I tend towards simplicity a lot, especially in summer when extra frills can mean extra inconvenience. I just really don’t want to fret with my outfit in the heat of the summer time; I’d rather forget it’s there!
To start with: this top. What’s not to love? It’s white which means it goes with anything, but it’s not boring or unflattering like a white tee could be. Plus, it’s linen. THE fabric for staying dry and breathable. It ruches around the skinniest part of the torso which is so flattering and has a bit of a peplum flare at the waist of your jeans. Hello, cutie! I seriously love this top and wear it a lot (last seen here on the blog). It comes in other colors/prints too (linked below).
Next are these shorts, which I can’t recommend enough. At the start of summer I ordered these shorts along with eight other pairs of denim cutoffs because I wanted to find the perfect flattering pair that wasn’t too butt-revealing or too mom jean. These Agolde Dee shorts were my favorite of all, so I returned the rest and haven’t looked back! These shorts have carried my daily #ootds (outfit-of-the-day), looking great in an effortless way with everything from a cotton t-shirt to a dressier top (like I wore in this post). It’s the only pair of shorts I bought this summer and was money well spent!
The best thing about this top and shorts combo is that you can accessorize it any way to fit your style! There’s no end to the colors or patterns that you can pair with a white top and denim shorts. I wore my favorite espadrille slide sandals, some blush pink sunnies, and colored gemstone jewelry to add just a bit of simple color. How would you accessorize this outfit?
