There’s nothing better than a basic outfit on those days where you just don’t feel like over thinking what you’re going to wear. When it’s this unbearably hot, I tend to get a little impatient, and that impatience translates into staring blankly at my closet telling myself I have nothing to wear!
I’ve been all about shorts this season, which is not typical for me. I’ve always worn one of my trusty pairs of J.Crew shorts during the day, but opted for a dress or skirt for going out at night. I think my change of heart for dressing up shorts occurred when I got these Lulu’s ankle strap heels a few months ago. I can literally wear them with anything, and that includes dressing up a basic pair of shorts! A simple daytime black and white look is easily transformed to a nighttime look by adding some heels, bangles, and a statement necklace.

Perfect for summer! It’s simple and totally chic!
I totally see what you mean about those shoes – I’m kind of in love with the “dressed up shorts” look these days!
Merrrr now if only I could wear heals longer than 15 minutes without feeling like my feet have been run over with a cement truck…
keep up the good work, chikita!
Thank you! I’m the same way with heels. I start complaining almost immediately when I have them on, but they’re so cute!
I am loving the simplicity, so perfect for summer!
