Weekly Outfit Recap #2

Here are some looks I wore to wrap up July (not sad to see it go…It was sooo hot!) and welcome August. Ahhh we are almost to my fave season! Bring on the crisp fall air and colorful foliage. Until then, I’ll be sporting lots of shorts and squeezing in a few more beach days!

You can explore the looks via the links in my descriptions or at the bottom of the post!

Look #1

I cannot wait for fall layers, and I plan on wearing this plaid tie-front top under lots of cardigans and jackets! And I LOVE sweaters and shorts together, so you bet I’ll be wearing these distressed mom shorts well into fall! And they are only $15!

Fit tips:

Top runs TTS but is pretty cropped. You need to wear high-waisted bottoms with it. I’m wearing a small.

Shorts run TTS (possibly slightly on the small side).

Espadrilles run TTS.

Look # 2

High-waisted shorts on repeat. And how cute is this tie-dye tee for Labor Day! It makes for a festive casual outfit, and yet you can wear the tee any day (not just Labor Day).

Fit tips:

The tee runs small. Size up one size.

Shorts run TTS (possibly slightly on the small side).

Look #3

I actually wore this black t-shirt dress without the camo jacket because it was so hot. But since I am craving fall so much, I couldn’t resist pretending for a moment.

Fit tips:

Dress runs TTS.

Camo jacket runs TTS. I’m wearing a medium, but wish I bought my usual small. I am just going to embrace the extra room and layer sweaters under it.

Boots run TTS and are AMAZING.

Look #4

Can you tell that I am slightly obsessed with hair accessories? They just complete the look for me! (Shop my fave headbands below!) I also love that this tiger print tee is a fresh take on leopard print. And it is only $5.99!!

These ombré boyfriend shorts are sooooo comfortable and fun!! And under $20! I love a subtle, interesting twist on a basic.

Fit tips:

Tee runs TTS (wearing a small)

Shorts run TTS (possibly slightly on the large side, but I am wearing my usual size. Boyfriend shorts aren’t supposed to be super fitted.)
