Summer Outfits for Every Day

My daily summer outfits are pretty simple: shorts and a tank or tee. All day every day.

To be honest I wore these black distressed shorts (sold out – similar Top Shop shorts here and these Abercrombie shorts here) for 3 days straight, took one day off, and then wore them again. One day of airing out is good enough, right? 😉

These shorts (as well as the Abercrombie shorts) are perfect for every day wear! The distressing adds a bit of funk, the black color is great for both playing with the kids (it hides the dirt!) but also dresses them up enough for heading out on the town and the loose fit keeps them extra comfy!

Know what works.

I’m a firm believer in knowing what works for your style for days that you don’t want to think…or have the energy to to think which is often my case with 2 kids under 2. My go to outfit for summer days are casual distressed shorts and a casual tank or tee (either plain, striped or a graphic tee).

I love this because it’s casual enough to wear while running after kids but cute enough to wear out! You don’t even need to worry too much about accessorizing since oftentimes a graphic tee makes a statement in itself!

I have a full post on places to buy graphic tees here. Graphic tees are some of my favorite things to wear since the options are truly endless on what kind of print you can find! You can finds words or phrases, pictures or art!

Use your accessories to switch things up!

I also love just plain tees like I’m wearing here. This gives you the ability to style things up a bit with a hat (as shown), a pile of necklaces or even a bandana .

Having a good base is perfect for adding in fun accessories like a hat or bandana tied around your neck or hair or even some crazy accessories. (Here’s a post with tons of ways to style a bandana!) A little bit can go a long way when it comes to your accessories!

For this outfit I added a fun straw hat that I recently bought from Carly Jean Los Angeles.If you don’t follow my Instagram stories you missed out on me sharing how much I love CJLA. I bought a pair of overalls from them and the straps didn’t stay tight. When I emailed them to ask them if there was a way to keep them up they simply replied with a gift card for a new pair and told me the ones I purchased happened to be faulty but I didn’t need to return them. SO NICE

This outfit is easy to switch up depending on what you’re doing, where you’re going or who you’re with! Start with the basics and add the fun!

What’s your summer uniform? I’d love to hear!

Thanks so much for reading, sharing and staying connected!
