I think this is the first time this season where everything I am wearing is new except my bag and necklace. I didn't really plan it that way, but there have just been some great summer clearance sales going on so I've been scooping things up! Summer fashion really doesn't change that much year to year, so if you need a few new things, now is the time to get them!
Today's outfit is my typical summer attire. It is what I feel most comfortable in when I'm out in public in the summer. I prefer sleeveless tops over tank tops, and shorts about this length. Anything shorter makes me feel uncomfortable, and anything longer makes my legs look unattractive. I really don't care for Bermuda shorts at all.
The chambray shirt is by St. John's Bay and is from JCP. The vanilla camisole is from Forever 21. I already owned a chambray shirt in a lighter wash, but when I saw this one on clearance, I thought I I could use a darker wash too. That's the thing about denim…whatever you buy in denim, whether it's jeans, jackets, skirts, or shirts….you need it in several different washes to go with the other items in your closet. I found that's especially true with denim jackets. I own three of those in different washes.
My nude cross-body bag is from JCP (OLD).
I'm still loving all the soft shorts that are available this season. They are so much more comfortable to wear in the hot summer months than twill or denim shorts. This is the third pair I've purchased this summer! You can see the other two HERE and HERE, if you missed those posts.
These shorts are by Liz Claiborne and are made of 100% linen. I think they are my favorite so far! They were originally $44, and marked down to $14.99. But I had both a $15.00 off coupon and $10.00 in rewards, so I bought them with another item that totaled my bill to $31.00, and when the deductions came off I got both items for less than $7.00. SCORE!
These shorts have a zipper, button, and a drawstring waist: so super comfy! There are very large pockets on the front.
Have a great day! Amy
