My Go-To Look for a Casual Summer Day

Am I the only one who finds it hard to look put together and cute while not being completely overdressed? For me, there is nothing worse than showing up and being very obviously under or overdressed, so I try to find outfits that are perfect for when I’m not quite sure what everyone else will be wearing. This has been my go-to look lately for those summer days when I want to look put together and chic but still casual.

I recently picked up this top and it has quickly become one of my most worn items in my closet. I’ve been constantly finding myself reaching for it because it’s so versatile. I love styling plain white shirts different ways, and I think the embroidered detail on this one is so cute because it adds the tiniest pop of sass.

These shorts have been one of my favorite purchases this summer.  I always struggle to find denim shorts that are cute but are also not too short. I’m 5’8″, so most shorts that I try on end up looking like daisy dukes. I also love the distressing on these! My Gucci belt might be the best fashion investment I have ever made. I am absolutely in love with it, and  I wear it all the time. It instantly makes any outfit better, and I always feel good when I wear it. It also makes a casual T-shirt and shorts seem fancier. If you can, definitely get your hands on one now!

My shoes are one of my favorite parts of this outfit because they are so comfortable and cute. I love the bows on these sandals.  They go with almost everything and are so easy just to throw on and go. I threw on my everyday jewelry: my Tiffany necklace. My best friend always calls me beans, so when I saw this bean necklace, I had to have it. The last essential item to any outfit for me is some good shades. I just feel cooler when I have sunglasses on, and I don’t really think any look is complete without them.
