With temperatures reaching above 90 degrees, for 3 days straight, it looks like summer is making it’s way to the East Coast. I’m not a huge fan of scorching temperatures unless I’m on a beach or near a pool, but I’m trying my best to prepare for the approaching season by adding some summer pieces to my wardrobe. As I mentioned in this post, I’m still shopping while in between sizes. This goes for my clothes and shoes so it’s a little frustrating at times, but I’m making it work.

Over the weekend I decided to pull out my favorite pair of pants. I was skeptical about how they’d fit; after all, it’s been more than 2 years since I’ve worn them. Once I figured out they fit, it was on! I paired the flowy pants with one of my new sleeveless tops and threw on the most comfortable pair of sandals, EVER. My black Birkenstocks. Can I just tell you that I’ve been dying to have a pair of these sandals? For years I couldn’t fit shoes/sandals with straps of any kind; even if they were adjustable. They just weren’t comfortable. Fast forward 2 years and I’m down a 1/2 shoe size and I no longer suffer from swollen feet and ankles! #WontHeDoIt
Pardon my excitement… Let’s get back to the outfit, shall we? Pairing 2 loose-fitting clothing items can sometimes make you look heavier than you are. However, if your top has a flattering hemline like the one here, it works. Also if you’ve been trying to figure out how to incorporate prints into your summer wardrobe, start with a pair of pants like this and add a solid top. Simple enough, right?

That’s a pretty top. Relaxed, flowy, but with a hint of sexy. My kinda vibe.
Considering I wear prints 24/7, for the summer it’ll probably be as tops and paired with neutral bottoms. Or maxi dresses.

Thanks, Viv! The cutouts are my fave. And yes, I know you, like me, LOVE to wear prints! You style them effortlessly.
These pants are fun and look pretty comfortable Whitney! How have you been? Thanks for your comment on my blog, and I do apologize for being missing in action, but I am thankful you stopped by anyway!
Thanks, Rachel and you’re so welcome! I’ve been doing well. Glad to see you back! And no worries; we all need a little break sometimes. 🙂
I’m not a big fan of hot temps either. I find looser silhouettes like this one work so much better when it’s warm out – I love your cut-out top!
