The easiest Summer default outfit has got to be the classic t-shirt and shorts combination. And though I’m not typically a shorts and shirt kind of girl, I happily accepted the challenge. I decided to dress up my Summer shorts and fell instantly in love with the printed shorts at Old Navy. By the way, get yourself to Old Navy ASAP, their Summer shorts are so incredibly adorable. The pair I chose to style happens to have a bit more tailoring than a more rugged pair of denim shorts (though the Old Navy boyfriend shorts are so cute!), and the flat front on this pair has a great slimming effect. I’m also loving the idea of warming these shorts up in the Fall and Winter with a pair of tights and booties.
With this Summer look, I really wanted to play with prints, so I mixed in a camo jacket and leopard flats. By the way, that camo jacket (and the adorable “Little Black Tee”) are from Old Navy as well! The friendship bracelets were just my colorful nod to Summer. And is it just me, or does every fashion blogger own an Old Navy camo jacket? So glad I snatched one up before they’re all sold out.
I kept my hair straight and sleek and went bold with my lipstick and nails. I’m convinced that red lips (plus a set of glossy red nails) glams up any outfit, even a Summer staple, like shorts and a tee.
