I don’t know what kind of summer you’re having, but I tend to have the same summer year after year. Somehow June rolls around and all I want are cool easy pieces that get me a few compliments but don’t start any drama. It’s the calm girl summer wardrobe. You know the type…
Not too bothered, prob has a book in her bag. Brings snacks to everything.
For the last few years, I’ve been stockpiling blue and white pieces for summer. I can’t resist the call of a soft white cotton skirt with broderie anglaise lace inserts. You can pull this one with a tshirt, tank, or over a bathing suit after swimming. Here I put it with a deep navy crew neck t-shirt, converse, bohemian print tote bag and a creatively customized vintage jacket from the 90s. Change the shoes to ballerina flats for a casual Friday work outfit.
For a weekend strolling around the Hamptons or wherever, I love this thin Indian cotton top swirling with navy blue embroidery. You could put this with a pair of wide legged trousers or a crisply white pleated skirt, but here I love them with soft SOLD design lab dark wash denim shorts. The Marks & Spencer cork heel sandals leg lengthening without being too show-y.
The hat is all the drama you need, and it’s portable shade. You can put your sunglasses up there for storage, too.
How is your summer going? Are you a hot, cool, or just getting by girl?
See you next time!
