Low Maintenance Summer Style

It’s been a minute since I’ve talked about clothes. Over the past few months; life, connections, health and emotions have become much more important topics than discussing what I’m wearing. While my focus changed a bit, one thing remained the same: I still wanted to dress up. Looking put-together has always been important to me, because it boosts my self esteem and my mood. You can do both you know? Talk about important, serious things, and still prioritize good style.

This post is a little round up of the low maintenance summer outfits I’ve been loving. Yes I wear hats a lot, yes I only wear neutral colors, yes I wear sunglasses pretty much constantly if I’m outside (my bad eye is incredibly light-sensitive). These are all things that help me look put together without a ton of effort though, which explains why you see me in them so often:

Below you’ll find the links to all these outfits (just click the underlined words). ❤

  1. Textured Tank and Textured Top
    Ribbed is in again, which I looove. Adding a texture like this to an outfit automatically adds interest, and is a refreshing play on the basic tee/tank.
  2. Round Sunnies
    If you’ve been a BIG sunny lover your whole life like me, you MUST give small round sunnies a shot. They’re effortless, retro, and incredibly trendy.
  3. Comfortable Face Masks
    If you’ve gotta wear them, make em cute. And comfortable. I LOVE these Kitsch masks because they’re light, comfortable, and they don’t muffle my voice when I talk.
    3a. Olive Tunic is from Costco and I cannot recommend it enough it’s SO comfortable. Size down once.
  4. Flowy Button Up – Similar
    Such a simple staple wardrobe piece that makes any outfit look put together. Plus, if you get too hot, just tie it around your waist.
  5. High Rise Jean Shorts
    If you don’t own a pair of high rise jean shorts you. are. missing. out. Not sure why high waists ever went out of style but I think it’s back forever now which I love because it is: Comfortable, tucks in the belly pooch and looks cute as hell.
  6. Chic Easy Sandals
    Everyone needs a pair of easy, chic sandals. Get them in a lighter or nude color to elongate your legs and make you look more tan!
  7. Statement Hat Ivory & Statement Hat Black
    You guys know about my hat obsession by now, so you also know that I’m just gunna tell you to go for it. Put on that damn hat that you think you “can’t pull off” because you CAN! It hides dark roots/greasy hair, can make you look chic when you haven’t even gotten ready for the day, and you’ll get compliments pretty much everywhere you go.
  8. Shredded Skinnies
    Something I wear year round that are perfect for a cooler summer day.

There you have it, my low maintenance summer style. You probably recognized a little trend throughout: comfortable, effortless, easy.

I really just wanted to round up these outfits to show that looking cute and put together doesn’t require a lot of effort. Just be mindful of what you’re buying, keeping these thoughts while making purchasing decisions:

– Will this transition into other seasons?
– If it wont transition into other seasons, is this something I know I’ll wear next summer?
– Am I comfortable enough in this to wear it regularly?
– Will I have to add obnoxious accessories to make this item wearable?
– Can I move around comfortably in this?
– Do I like this color enough to wear it frequently?

I hope you take advantage of these hot summer days for a little while longer, and get some cute outfits in for them. Because you know what’s next…. F A L L!

xoxo, Lo
