Summer of Style | 09

Happy August, friends! The kids and I made it to one of our favorite places on earth, and thanks to Tropical Storm Emily, we spent our first day binging movies. No complaints here though, as I’ll take snuggly cardigans and Netflix any day! We did get out and explore a bit, and it was crazy to see the palm trees bend almost in half under the force of the winds.

Today I’m sharing another simple outfit in my Summer of Style series…this one a casual combo perfect for the hottest days.

I love wardrobe pieces that have extra details…like ruffles, embroidery, tassels and ties…they just make a basic outfit more special. This one-shoulder top shows enough skin to be sassy, but not so much you feel overly-exposed.

Fit Tip: The top runs large, so definitely size down.

I was drawn to these shorts for their light weight and chambray fabric. They’re kind of like a dressed-up cutoff, in that they go with just about anything, but the style and belted waist (the tie is removable), give them a dressier feel. They’re darling with even the most basic white tee or tank. Of course I’d always add a statement necklace or earring, too.

Fit Tip: They’re true-t0-size, I’m wearing an XS.

This monogrammed tote has been a great addition to so many outfit this Summer…and I get compliments every time I carry it! (Use code SUGARPLUM10 for 10% off your total order.) But the biggest surprise wardrobe addition has been these sandals! They’re definitely an investment, but not only do they go with every outfit from shorts to nice dresses, but they are insanely comfortable! I’ve reached for them over any other shoe or sandal since the day I brought them home.

Fit Tip: I did size up half in the shoe, but I have a high arch. Mine are the ‘makeup’ color, and a great neutral for my skin tone.

  1. Binging on movies on Netflix sounds like the perfect plan to avoid the summer heat! I definitely do that… a lot!
