I love the juxtaposition of shorts with a long-sleeve or 3/4-sleeve top, so today I’m styling white denim shorts with pink tie hem sweater.
Now, don’t all my southern sisters start telling me they could never. ever. wear a sweater in the summertime. I get it. We don’t all live in a climate conducive to wearing this look in June, but most of us can do this at some point in the year.
We’re actually having a bit of a cold spell this week here in PA, so this outfit is perfect for us right now, but it’s also the type of outfit I like to wear when we vacation in Maine or on a cooler evening at the beach.
This tie hem sweater is a nice quality and feels good on, and it’s on sale! It comes down to $23.99 when you add it to your cart. I picked it up a few weeks ago, and I’ve worn it quite a bit. It’s also cute with cropped jeans and wedge sandals, and this gorgeous pink looks great paired with white or blue denim. For size reference, I have the small.
These white denim AG shorts are a few years old, but they’re still available in a few sizes at Nordstrom Rack. I really like the fit, and they’re nice and thick and not at all see-through.
For a similar version, Loft has their white denim roll shorts marked down to $35. I can’t vouch for the fit as I haven’t tried them, but they have a similar look to mine.
I thought these sandals were gone, and I’ve been linking to the similar gold boa pair, but I just did some sleuthing and found my plain gold pair at Lord & Taylor! Either way, you can’t go wrong with these gold thong sandals. They really dress up a simple look, and they’re very comfortable.
For jewelry, I like to wear a long necklace over a jewel neck top because it helps draw the eye in and down towards the waist and visually elongates the upper body.
This double pearl pendant is one of my go-to necklaces this season. The delicate, layered look is on trend, and this necklace works with both dressy and casual outfits.
I also added a stack of Alex and Ani bangles. As you know, I wear these a lot. I think they have a great casual vibe, and when you stack them, they make a statement without being overwhelming.
I carried this straw clutch for fun, although I’m usually more likely to want a shoulder bag with my casual outfits. This bag is really cute for going out, though. I love the color combination. I picked it up when it was on sale a while back; hopefully it will go on sale again somewhere soon!
I love this summery pink-and-white combo. It’s so cheerful and fun.
Yesterday when I was out and about running errands, I kept noticing women wearing pink and white. They said lavender was going to be the color of the season, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s pink all the way!
