Hey guys! Today I am sharing six things that are in my summer wardrobe that I absolutely adore. Get the details below + check back next week for Lo’s summer list. xx
the jeans: It’s been a 2-3 month long search for a light/medium wash jean that was distressed (but not too distressed) as well as cropped and frayed at the bottom. So particular, I know! To add to my picky-ness, I also like to stick to brands that I know work (I have had too many horrible denim experiences to take a big risk these days) so when I saw this pair of Joe’s from Nordstrom (ON SALE!) my heart skipped a beat and I bought them. Side note- I did find that these ran big. I am always a 26 in Joe’s, but I had to return these for a 25. They are stretchy little guys, but so comfy.
the top: Literally, the perfect striped shirt. The material is a little heavier than normal (almost a light sweater weight) and the neck is a little high, making for a chill way to look totally put together.It’s also a tiny bit cropped, but not too much. It is final sale right now at Madewell at $34.99 and I would totally suggest going for. The same shirt style also comes in black and colorblock — and confession, I ordered both! It is seriously that good.
the shorts: Madewell does it again- these shorts are the perfect balance of casual and cool. This is my first pair of high-rise shorts and I am in love. Added bonus, they can be cuffed up or down, depending on your mood and your outfit. Side Note- Again, I did size one size down than my normal size!
the sunnies: Get ready for the compliments. These Westward Leaning shades (℅) are truly amazing. The lens are completely flat and the appearance is super shiny, yet not reflective. So incredible! The quality is undeniable, as well. Protect your eyes, enjoy the sun, and look pretty darn cool…done, done, and done.
the espadrille: These Marc Fisher beauties were in my Nordstrom shopping cart for so long, until one day I finally caved and clicked purchase. Oops 🙂 However, I am so happy that I did. Right when I opened the box I could tell how nice they were and was even happier when I tried them on- perfect fit and so comfortable. I have really narrow feet that sometimes don’t jive well with the espadrille style, but I was so happy that these worked.
the hat: I am a definite hat girl, so this summer I knew I needed a black straw hat. I had seen other bloggers wear the straw Mesa hat from Madewell, so I decided to give it a go. It’s so comfortable and fits like a dream. Sometimes hats look huge on the head (one thing I do not like) but this one does not- hooray!
