Temperatures in the O.C. are rising and rising, and it seems like it isn’t getting any cooler. For me, dressing in this weather seems almost impossible. Of course I want to look trendy, but sometimes I just wish I could walk outside naked and still be seen as fashionable (let me dream ladies!). I am constantly trying to make sure that I wear the right amount of pieces that don’t make me too uncomfortable or that make me sweat as soon as I step outside of the house.

I’m sure any Fashionista will agree with me when I say that there are so many pieces in my closet that I would love to wear, but that just seem so unrealistic because of this heat. Yes, I would love to layer my favorite pieces and top them off with my favorite denim jacket. But, with this weather comes responsibility. And, as Fashionistas, our responsibility is to take this time to incorporate some of our favorite pieces with this insane weather and still come out looking fab!

This Fashionista’s outfit is probably one of my favorites I’ve seen this summer! There’s something about pairing a classic boyfriend short with black booties and toping it off with a layered tank and high-neck halter bralette that reminds me of how much I love fashion and all the versatility that comes along with it. Wearing booties during this heat may seem crazy to some, but to me, pairing this Fashionista’s booties with a tank and a pair of denim shorts is the perfect way to incorporate cooler weather pieces with summertime style.

One Simple Change: As summer comes to an end, we can take these pieces and make them into an even chicer fall outfit! Getting rid of the shorts and replacing them with black skinny jeans and your fave military jacket is the perfect way to recreate this outfit for a cooler season.
