Tie Front Tee & Shorts Outfit

Greetings! Welcome back to 25 Days of Summer Fashion. Today I’m back in my comfort zone with a casual shorts outfit that is the type of thing I wear every day all summer long.

A casual tie front tee and shorts outfit with gold thong sandals. This is pretty much what I live in every day all summer long.

This tie front tee is another White House Black Market find. I like the shorter styling, and the tie front adds a nice point of interest. This top also comes in white, lilac, and a pretty black and white stripe. At the moment, tees at WHBM are BOGO 50% off!

For size reference, I have the small. I did wear a nude cami under this shirt (tucked into my shorts) because when you move around, it rides up and can show your midsection. I think it might be too short on anyone who is long-waisted or much taller than my 5’5″, but I really like this length for me. I also think it would work well with a skirt, as they tend to have higher waistbands.

The material is super soft, and the gently scooped neckline is flattering without being revealing. I also like the sleeves on this top — for those of you who don’t like to show your upper arms, this is perfect.

I paired this top with white jean shorts and gold thong sandals.

These are the Kut from the Kloth shorts that came from Trunk Club. I like the 4″ inseam, and they fit really well. They don’t stretch out at all.

I accessorized with my gold initial pendant to coordinate with the gold in my sandals, and I added this beaded wrap bracelet because it compliments the blue top so nicely.

The gold and white stone drop earrings bring in the white from the shorts, and they have such a great summery vibe. I find myself wearing these a lot lately.

I really like how this outfit came together. I know I say it all the time, but I think the key to making a casual outfit look put together is to find tops with an interesting detail (such as the tie on this tee) and to make sure to throw on a few on-trend accessories.

Of course fit always matters, no matter how dressy or casual your outfit is. If you’re wearing your clothes too big or too small, it is going to immediately look sloppy. Finding shorts that fit well isn’t easy. I’ve tried and returned a lot, but I finally found a few winners. I like how these fit close to the body without being too tight.
