The Sweet Details

Let’s go back to that original, hot day outfit of shorts & a tank top. Seriously the best & most comfortable thing to wear in the heat besides a bikini. To boost the cute factor but maintain the comfort, let’s re-imagine this look just a bit.

Shorts

Instead of a pair of athletic shorts or denim shorts, why not try a pair of high waisted, loose fitting shorts in another color or print. Adding some detail, or something out of the ordinary really elevates the entire look. These white shorts I’m wearing are a total Zimmermann dupe & are under $20! Not only are they cute & affordable, but the material is light & super breathable making them super comfortable to wear on even the hottest of days.

Tank Top

If you’re wearing a great high waisted pair of shorts, I recommend pairing it with a cropped tank top. Don’t shy away from cropped tops too quickly because just because they are cropped, doesn’t mean you have to show any skin. Cropped just means it’s shorter than the usual tops, but if you’re wearing high-waisted shorts, the cropped top can meet the shorts perfectly at the waist.

To take it up a notch on the cute scale, find a tank top with interesting design details. This gingham top (similar here) has a classic square neck with ruffled straps & a lovely tie in the back. Tie back tops are so cute & fun to wear this time of year. Whether you go with a tie back top or not, finding a top with details such as ruffles, buttons, bows, etc. will totally up your fashion game.

Don’t Forget The Accessories!

On hot summer days, the last thing I want to wear is a cross body bag. Maybe it’s just me, but I start to feel trapped under there, plus the added sweat. Pass. I tend to gravitate towards top handle or satchel bags for that very reason. This bamboo bag has gotten so much love over the past couple of years & I still just love the way it goes with outfits & is a great conversation piece. The structure & lines of this bag bring so much texture & depth to a look.

Earrings are a great & easy way to look cute on hot days. I’m totally obsessed with these strawberry earrings I found for under $10! I mean how perfect for summer are they?! If not these, then you know I love a good pair of floral earrings. Also, I’m loving this heart pair at the moment. (I can’t stop wearing them!)

Don’t be afraid to have a bit of fun with your sunglasses. Try a fun new color or shape & just rock them.

Lastly, wear a hat. Most likely, if it’s hot & you’re outside, that means the sun is out. Look cute & protect your face with a nice straw hat. If it’s too hot to wear your hair down, wear it in a low pony with the hat like I did here.

All About The Texture

Playing with different textures in an outfit is a great way to elevate your look. For spring, I love light cotton pieces, shirred details, buttons & bows, & lace or crochet pieces. But most of all I love incorporating woven, wicker, & rattan pieces into my looks for more of a classic, vintage feel. This natural texture brings warmth & dimension to an outfit. I tend to gravitate towards these lovely pieces on the daily once the weather starts to warm up. The easiest way to add some of this natural texture to to your look is with a sweet basket bag, but that’s not the only way to do this. Right now there are so many amazing shoes & accessories available to add some lovely texture to your daily looks.

What I’m Wearing

Let’s start at the top! These woven straw hoop earrings were a steal at only $7. They are so lightweight, & easy to pair with almost any look. Next is my new favorite top. This lovely botanical print top with ruffle sleeves is on sale right now for only $7! I’m so in love with this dreamy floral print & classic feminine shape. Then I chose to add this faux leather & woven belt (also on sale for only $7…I’m seeing a trend here…haha) around my waist to add a bit of structure & break up the look a bit.

The lace midi skirt is one that I’ve own for many years now. (see a similar one here) I love the contrast between the soft lace skirt & the structured basket bag. This particular basket bag is the newest in my collection & looks like a mini picnic basket. It’s small enough to be carried around with ease, but big enough to carry quite a lot with you. For a feminine touch, I tied my Gal Meets Glam Logo Scarf in a bow on one of the handles. Last but not least are my white woven shoes (which are under $30!). These beauties are so comfortable to wear, & I love the way a white shoe looks with a spring outfit.
