Casual Summer Shorts Outfit with Gingham Popover

Welcome back to 21 Days of Summer Fashion! I pretty much live in denim shorts and sandals in the summertime, and I love how this gingham popover elevates the look while still keeping it cool and casual.

Gingham is trending this spring, and I love this larger scale pattern. The material is lightweight and comfortable but thin enough to be see-through.

This top came from J.Crew Factory, and it’s a great price, but unfortunately it’s almost sold out so I rounded up some other options below.

These are my favorite white denim shorts, but they’re also low inventory.

If you’re looking for white shorts this summer, Loft has a similar cuffed denim style, and J.Crew Factory has a lot of white chino shorts options. Talbots also has good variety of white shorts right now — both denim and chino.

I wore gold thong sandals to keep the look casual. After my Tory Burch sandals, these are my go-to. I like how the gold gives my outfit a touch of glam, and the minimalistic style is flattering. They’re also quite comfortable, and I can walk in them for hours.

I’ve also discovered a lifesaver when it comes to button-front tops — fashion tape! Kelly Snyder of Adore Your Wardrobe tipped me off to this stuff, and it is AMAZING. (Also, FYI, Adore Your Wardrobe is now open for registration! Find out more HERE.)

(I wasn’t actually wearing it in these pictures, in case you’re thinking my shirt looks like it’s gaping — it may have been. I forgot to bring it with me to the photo shoot, even though it was on my mind.)

Not only does it hold button-front shirts in place, but you can use it to adhere your clothing to your skin or bra straps or where ever you want your clothing to stay in place. I’ve tried other fashion tape in the past that didn’t stick, but this stuff works great. Total game changer!

This is the kind of easy outfit I like to wear running around town and working from home in the summertime. I usually opt for a t-shirts, but this gingham popover is fun for a change.
