Style Session: Causal Summer Chic for the Coffee Obsessed

Summer is finally just about upon us, which means it's time to break out some fun, playful summer clothes! Yay! I'm a big fan of summer dresses (& could wear one everyday if the weather/work would allow me to), but like many of you...I love just being a tshirt and shorts!

I wanted to share with you one of my new favorite summer looks, which is a sophisticated twist on the ultra causal shorts and tshirt look. 

One of my favorite summer accessories are these adorable straw style fedora hats! They are for way more than just the beach (although you bet your tookus I wear mine there too!) Target has an excellent selection right now in a variety of colors. 
This hat just elevates this look in a whole new way!

I also wanted to add a blazer to this look to give it a chic vibe, but it was important to pick the right blazer. I went with this cute semi-fitted blush blazer from Akira. The color worked well with the summer look (as opposed to black or navy), and kept the whole look feeling fresh.

I should probably point out that I'm not a big fan of "shortie shorts". You know what I'm talking about...those shorts that are so small you feel like the whole world can see your butt cheeks! Unfortunately, that's the majority of shorts we have to work with. I'm a huge fan of these super distressed shorts from American Eagle because they give that relaxed boyfriend denim feel, while still giving a flattering shape. I feel like the ultra distressed look of the shorts is complemented well by the very polished style of the blazer. Yin-Yang.

*BONUS* All shorts at American Eagle are BOGO right now!

My absolute favorite part of this outfit is this adorable coffee shirt from Pretty Print Shop. My girl Hannah knows how to make an adorable tee! These shirts fit and feel amazing; plus they look super cute with shorts, jeans, tucked into a skirt, and more. Very versatile! 

If you know anything about my Etsy shop, you pretty much know that my blood is at least 80% coffee. This coffee tee is perfect for the coffee addict in your life!

Can't forget to add some bling! I love this bracelet from Akira and the rings from Chloe + Isabel!
