casual summer

Holy guacamole (currently eating some) can y’all believe that it’s already July!? Like where has this year gone! Today I’m talking about beating the summer heat which is no easy task here in the south, thanks humidity.  Some day’s are better than some but unless you’re super human like my friend Hannah you’re hair is going to fall the second you walk out the door.  Her hair is literally so weird, it loves humidity, I hate her 😉








The invention of bandeaus and bralettes was the best thing to happen for girls everywhere.  I’m not one of those girls who feels comfortable going completely bra-less, in public that is.  I love tanks like this one but realistic the design is a little iffy when it comes to showing off your bra.  This is where the bralettes and bandeaus come into play, they’re made to be shown off.  I have some solid ones but I love them in lace.  When it’s the weather is hot and sticky the less things touching you the better.

I know this should go without saying but when shorts have pockets shorts (or any piece of clothing for that matter) it instantly makes me love them more.  Not that I honestly every really use them I just like having them.  Most denim & chinos have pockets but cute little cotton shorts like these typically don’t have pockets.

I’ve linked a bunch of my favorite lightweight summer shorts so be sure to check them out!

ASOS: These are the cutest ruffle. These have tassels on the hem line! These are on major sale (originally $137, now under $40) most sizes are still available!

Nordstrom: These are the perfect lounge short. These are actually a skort but they’re tie dye. (buying them!) These are high waist & pleated, need I say more. (added to cart too!)

h&m: These have the cutest floral embroidery & little cut-outs along the hem. These are scalloped and they have a matching top, perfection!

forever21: These are simple but have cute tassel details. These are crochet & in the perfect shade of yellow.

J.Crew: These have pineapples. These have the cutest eyelet detailing.

J.Crew Factory: These are the easiest summer shorts of all time.

p.s. I’ve had this reversible tote for like 2 years and I’ve never switched it to the coral color, it’s cute but I’m still not over the perforated side!

    I love those shorts! And yes, sometimes I just want to wear a bralette and normal undies (not a thong) and those are the best days!

    I have never worn a bandeau before. However, I have some tops that would look much better with one worn underneath.
