Now that it’s getting warmer here in Orange County, it’s time to whip out my favorite basic: the denim short. Denim shorts are one of the most versatile pieces you could have, and are a staple for transitioning from winter to spring!

My everyday style is all about mixing and matching casual basics with fun prints or cool textures. This particular outfit is a go-to for a typical day of running errands and grabbing coffee with friends.

As you may know, I love my plain white T-shirts and blue skinny jeans, and over time I have learned how to style these pieces to be trendy and chic without looking too basic. It’s no doubt that we all want to hop on all the latest fashion trends, but when you’re a college girl on a budget, it’s not the healthiest habit to have.

My biggest advice for fellow Fashionistas is to find trendy pieces that you love, but choose ones that have a neutral palette. For example, this star top features a fun print but can still be a lasting piece in your wardrobe because of the black and white tones that will combine well with many other pieces. Denim is also a must-have and I find myself wearing some form of denim to class almost every day. In particular, distressed denim always adds a fun touch and also looks amazing paired with different textures like satin and silk. To finish off this particular outfit, I paired it with some comfy slip-on sandals, a little black backpack, and some vintage sunglasses for the perfect touch!
