Summer Nights in Red + White

Shirt // Shorts // Watch (strap) // Shoes (similar) // Bracelet // Earrings

If I could wear one outfit all summer, this would be it. I wore this outfit to coffee & dinner with my mom and sisters for a "girls night out" downtown before we all go our separate ways for the fall. As much as I love the polished look of a tucked-in shirt, it's so easy just throw this one on and go. I've had it for over a year but just started wearing it. It's a color I wouldn't normal wear in the summer, but paired with shorts, it's perfect! 

During the summer, I usually have a couple of "go-to" outfits that I wear over and over. This has definitely been one of them. Since I don't have class/meetings/events to go to like I do during the school year, I opt for a more comfortable look when I can. I love the crocheted material that gives the top a more structured look. I can dress it up by tucking it into a skirt or down by throwing it on over some shorts/jeans. It's just one of those pieces that I can layer year-around. Bummer that it took me a year to figure that out, haha!
