This week’s Fashionista is spot on with spring and summer trends this year. Her look is easy to achieve and laid back, yet remains polished. Here in Connecticut, there are a lot of summer concerts and with concerts, come tailgating. This look is perfect for some time outside with friends. The shorts and knotted top are great for the heat during the warmer hours of the day while the long sleeves are perfect for chillier evenings. The white denim and chambray button-down are an amazing combination and is one that you should all be trying out for yourselves!

How To: The best way to achieve this look is to keep your outfit relaxed. This Fashionista’s high-waisted white denim shorts and her ultra chic chambray button-down are perfect for summer nights and can definitely be dressed up or down depending on the event. Although this Fashionista is sporting leopard flats, this look could also be finished off with sandals, combat boots or even cowboy boots for a summer concert.
