Getting “dressed-up” in the summer heat is always a drag.
For me at least. Anyone else? Maybe it’s because the heat in Phoenix is unlike any other, but for whatever reason, it’s not my favorite.
I feel like you need to be super strategic with what you wear. It’s ungodly hot outside, but you know inside it is going to be freezing. You need to look put together and nice, but with wearing as little as possible. It’s a struggle. So when I find a look that works, especially one that I feel is a good dressy summer look, I tend to stick with it throughout the summer.
This specific pair of shorts have been a go-to for me all summer. I shared them with you (here) last year with a monochromatic look, but I never truly appreciated them until this year. The loose fit makes them the perfect pair to wear to whatever occasion, whether it be brunch with your girlfriends or a date night. They have that perfect look that isn’t over-the-top or too simple.
The struggle with being so hot outside and freezing inside during the summer is easily solved with a cute off-the-shoulder top. I found this perfect floral one at Zara on major sale.
This top paired with these shorts, makes for the perfect dressy summer look. I’d rather wear the long sleeve and bear the heat while walking the short distance into where ever I am going and then be comfortable inside, where I’ll be spending more time.
A dressy summer look is always necessary. I am so happy I was able to find an outfit that works for several occasions. The best is that it still feels like me. Casual and easy yet put together.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
note: the top linked is from Nordstrom, but is super similar.
