WHITE PANTS | SIMILAR STRIPED TOP | SIMILAR VEST HERE | BROWN SANDALS | RED BAG | SIMILAR PANAMA HAT | LADDER CUFF | SCREW CUFF | BANGLE BRACELETS | SUNGLASSES
This is the ultimate way to layer for the summer. Find a vest that you love, and add it to a comfortable longer tee (stripes are always good) over your favorite jeans or white pants. With long vests, I always make sure they are adding to my outfit without being too distracting. Look for neutral colors and lighter weight fabrics and you'll be good. When wearing hats in the summer, the key is looking put together with minimal effort so don't overthink your outfit too much or stress about perfect hair. Think casual. My hat is currently on sale under $20!
LILAC TOP | SKIRT (MADE MYSELF, SIMILAR HERE) | BLACK HEELS | INITIAL NECKLACE | LADDER CUFF | BANGLE BRACELETS
I'm so glad I got this lilac top. It's seriously so versatile, and the color is amazing. I wore it here with white pants and wedges, and look how perfectly it works tucked into a polka dot skirt. Solid tops are always a great investment for that reason; you can literally add them to any kind of look (especially patterns with the right color combos), and it turns something basic into a unique, tailored look.
SIMILAR LACE TOP HERE, HERE, HERE, AND HERE | DISTRESSED JEANS | OPEN-TOE BOOTIES | FAUX LEATHER JACKET | KATE SPADE BAG | LEATHER WATCH | LADDER CUFF | BANGLE BRACELETS
Lace tops are perfect for summer. They easily dress up your outfit, and they are lightweight and airy. I linked to three that are really pretty and detailed (but all a little different). Because lace is naturally so feminine, adding a distressed pair of jeans gives your look a little more edge, which I like for nights that are more casual. You could just as easily add your favorite lace top to white pants and heels for a dressier look.
I love the shape to these white pumps. They are so stylish and unique, and they are a great investment because they can be paired with just about any look you'll be wearing this summer.
