So summer on the east coast–hot and humid much? I’ve always been used to the hot, but this humidity almost has me thinking about fall. If winter didn’t come immediately afterwards, I’d be much more for it!
When I do decide to brave the weather, this combo has basically been my go-to: patterned shorts + neutral top. Since I’m not working much, it can be hard to want to put on anything but running shorts and a workout top when I’m just running errands, but once I convince myself to, I feel like I’m actually part of the world again. Amazing how that happens, no?
I lucked out during my recent trip back home when I went to Banana Republic and stumbled across this pair of blue dotted shorts from their recent Marimekko collaboration in the sale section. They were literally the only pair left in the store–and in my size!–so I snatched them up and just as luckily, they fit perfectly.
The shorts are a bit longer and boxier than what I normally wear, so I would usually grab a more fitted top to help balance out the look. However, I feel like summer is the one time to definitely break the rule: the more flowy, the better. Well, at least to a certain extent that is.
What’s your summer standard look?
