Hello Monday! I hope you all had a good weekend. I had a sponsored post on my schedule for today, but I just realized that I didn’t get approval from the brand to post yet. Ooops! I thought I was so prepared, with a post all ready to go.
Fortunately I had these pictures in my queue, so I put this post together this morning. This is a typical everyday summer outfit for me, or if you work during the week, it’s an easy weekend look or maybe something to wear on vacation.
I have the Free People Clare camo tee from the #NSale last year in the black combo — if you’re a regular, I’m sure you recognize it. This year, they brought out a couple of new prints, and I snapped up this one called Wild Thing. Both are fully stocked at Nordstrom right now.
I love these tees because the material is lightweight without being flimsy or see-through, and they have such nice details — like the rolled, raw-edge sleeves and hem and the contrasting trim at the neck. The length is 25″ so you can either tuck it or leave it out, depending on the rest of your outfit and the look you like.
They recommend sizing up, but I went with my true size small in both. I wash them on cold with like colors and hang to dry, and I haven’t had any issue with shrinkage.
I paired this tee with the Joe’s Jeans Ozzie shorts in a faded black wash they call Dusk To Dawn. I picked these up when they were on sale a few weeks back because I’ve been wanting a good pair of washed black shorts.
They have a 4″ inseam, which I really like. While I do wear the 3″ inseam, I really prefer the extra inch when I can get it. I also like the raw hem with the absence of any other distressing. You can find these at Bloomies and Shopbop, but I recommend waiting for a sale unless they’re something you need right away.
I also found a similar pair at Gap, right down to the 4″ inseam.
My Marc Fisher Pava slides seemed like the obvious choice for footwear. Of course, a fashion sneaker could work as well, but I like the black sandals with the black in the shorts and top, and the silver ball studs are a fun detail. They’re very comfortable; the straps are soft, and the footbed is smooth and feels nice against the foot.
This year, they brought these back with three straps instead of four and renamed them Pacca, and they’re 30% off right now at Nordstrom and Zappos! They come in a bunch of other colors, and I’m trying to resist the urge to order the white or tan.
As far as accessories go, I have no idea why I didn’t put on a bracelet. As you can see, we were here at the house, so I certainly had plenty of options at my disposal.
I’m also not sure why we didn’t move that hose on the ground behind me… I even remember seeing it that day, but I guess it didn’t quite register that I could easily move it out of the way.
Anyway! I did at least put on a pair of fun earrings — my friend made these, and they can be purchased through her Etsy shop. They’re very lightweight, and she has some different color options available.
