Despite the “May Gray” that is currently upon us, and the “June Gloom” surely to hit San Diego, the sunshine that peeks through makes all the difference when deciding between T-shirts and sweatshirts. For this Fashionista, her black and white striped crewneck T-shirt was an easy choice after the cloud cover broke ever so slightly as she prepped for coffee with friends.

Being a lover of stripes, I was naturally drawn to her slightly oversized T-shirt, which she purchased from Brandy Melville. Because of its boxy nature and length, she tucked the front of the shirt into the top of her high-waisted shorts, just enough to see the length of the zipper. These bleached shorts are the perfect pairing for her shirt due to their color, as well as their cut and rise, and they are definitely a summer staple.

Also a summer staple is a pair of flip flops, like the ones worn by this Fashionista. They serve as a convenient and cute option for multiple occasions, whether it be a trip to the beach or a day spent shopping.

The icing on the cake to this Fashionista’s simple outfit for a summer outing is her versatile Rebecca Minkoff satchel, which she wears on her arm, but can also use as a crossbody. The embossed leather perfectly complements the classic shape of the purse, and it adds dimension to her overall look.

One Simple Change: To transform this outfit from day to night, you can simply swap out the bleached shorts for black or white skinny jeans and add a statement necklace. Pair the changes with a chunky-heeled sandal and a dark lip for the finishing touches, and this casual daytime outfit will be nighttime glam in no time!
