Down in Florida, the sky can be clear and blue, with the sun blazing or humid and cloudy with rain pouring for hours. Unfortunately, Mother Nature likes to have both occur at the same time more often than not during the summer months. If you can imagine a beautiful sunny day as it simultaneously rains cats and dogs, you have an accurate idea of Florida weather. Now this can make it hard to figure out what to wear when the weather app on our iPhones is prone to deceive us. We’re stuck wondering: shall I wear a sundress and sandals or rain boots and an umbrella?
I found this Fashionista wearing the perfect outfit that would be appropriate for either weather condition. She is rocking acid-washed cropped shorts, which are just all the rage this summer. These shorts are definitely a must-have item for the your wardrobe if you live in a state like Florida where you can wear shorts year-round! They are versatile enough to wear with any top for any occasion. Cropped shorts can be dressed up for a night out with friends by wearing an embellished top like this from Topshop and heels from ALDO, or dressed down for a day at the mall or the beach like this Fashionista. With these shorts, she chose to keep it simple: she has on a white v-neck shirt and tan sandals. These sandals are great for hot days because they let your feet breathe a little. This look caught my eye because it exemplified what I’ve always believed to be true, which is: you can never do wrong with a white shirt and denim!
Now, for her accessories, she chose to wear a black and gold watch that is very reminiscent of the Michael Kors watches that everyone has been sporting lately. If you can’t afford to break the bank with name brands there are cheaper alternatives such as this watch from GoJane.com. The purple cross-body bag is a super easy way to add color to an outfit such as this because it doesn’t take away from the effortless look she has going. Instead, it adds to her outfit as she wears it over her shoulder to carry essential items. With summer upon us, it’s hard to be comfortable in the heat, but shorts like these from Hollister Co. paired with a slightly tucked in over-sized t-shirt are trendy for any summer day.
