As you can see from the gallery at the end of this post, white shorts + a loose blouse make up a lot of my go-to summer outfits. I especially love these white shorts because they are a canvas material instead of a denim which makes them feel a little dressier for evenings out–a common occurrence in the summer!
This blouse caught my eye in Loft because it’s so unlike anything else I have in my wardrobe. Without thinking, I always seem to gravitate towards solid colors or stripes in blouses and shirts, I think partly because I know exactly how to pair them with the other elements of my wardrobe. However, I have been trying to branch out and incorporate some actual prints, and this top was really a no-brainer.
I’ve already gotten so much use out of it at work, usually paired with trouser jeans, but love that it can transition to more casual settings. Over the next few months, I want to try to focus less on purchasing the perfect piece to add to my wardrobe, and more time figuring out how to make more pieces I already own work for more settings.
How do you find pieces that can be both professional enough for work, but also casual enough for a night out?
