Basic Instinct

With the summer heat slowly creeping higher and higher, sometimes it gets harder and harder to figure out what to wear.  The California sun is beating down and the AC is my best friend, so sometimes I question if leaving the house is even worth it!  For this reason exactly, I came up with a summer go-to outfit for when my brain is too frazzled to function.

A pair of cute jean shorts and a comfy tee is a great wear-anytime-and-anywhere outfit since there are endless ways to accessorize this combo!

During the day I can throw on a tee with my jean shorts and add a statement making accessory- like a chunky necklace, dangling earrings or even a leopard turban if I’m feeling crazy.  Voila- an easy, simple outfit that feels as light as it does cute! If my daytime activities extend into the night, then I add a structured blazer or a sequined jacket with a nice pair of heels to take the outfit from casual to chic.

With more than two months of summer still ahead, I’m sure I’ll be playing around with these basics non-stop.  Play around with yours too!  Maybe your uniform is an easy sundress and espadrilles or a silk tank and flowy pants- whatever it is, having a go-to outfit takes the stress out of summer dressing!
