My Summer Uniform

Black Tanks: Old (similar here & love this one!) // Cutoffs: Levis (repurposed- similar here
// Hat: Brixton // Sandals: Boohoo (Valentino dupes!) // Bag: TjMaxx (similar here)

Hey guys! I wore this look on a casual shopping day and I loved it so much I thought I would share it on the blog! There's not really anything particularly special about it other than I will literally be wearing it all summer because it's cute, comfortable and so easy to throw on! I warned you I would be wearing this hat all summer on Monday's post so it only seems right to be adding it to my summer uniform! These shoes are Valentino dupes and I love them! I'm wearing my normal size and they're so comfortable, I actually wear these a lot when I travel (I loved them in London) because I think they look kinda fancy but are really easy to pack. 

Also... what seems like a million years later and I FINALLY found a pair of levi cutoffs that fit me. If you saw my instagram story last week then you know how thrilled I was when I found these. As it would turn out, I wasn't struggling to find a pair that fit me as much as I wasn't even looking for the right size. I saw these in the store and I didn't even pick them up because I thought they looked so big. Instead I grabbed a handful of cutoffs that looked like they fit and headed to the dressing. All of the shorts that I grabbed were so small and uncomfortable and even though I could get them buttoned they weren't the look I wanted at all. Plus, aren't you supposed to be able to sit down in the clothes you buy?? Lol I ended up asking the sales associate to grab the pair that I had passed by and I immediately loved them so much once I had them on. Long story short... Levi cutoffs run very small and don't be afraid to try things on until you find the perfect fit! Women's clothing is so messed up when it comes to sizes anyways, I hardly ever pay attention unless I'm ordering online now a days! 

Sharing some of my favorite wardrobe basics also got me thinking about other "basics" in my life or rather things that I do on a regular basis. Some of my basics include LOTS of talking to Jesus (24/7!! haha), making lists, online shopping, hanging out with my family, drinking coffee & check my social media (I LOVE chatting with you guys on instagram!). 

What are some of the "basics" in your life?? Wardrobe or lifestyle- I'd love to know!

  1. I have that issue with denim shorts too, whenever I go to try them on I am wildly off my size when I am trying to guess what it is. It must be something about how short they are lol.
