The sun is shining in the sky for longer these days, the leaves are green and the breeze is warm. Summer means that it’s finally bikini and barefoot season, unfortunately we can’t all spend our days relaxing poolside or on the beach. For those days when you need a little more coverage, an outfit like the one worn by this Fashionista is perfect. Her laid back look requires minimal effort which makes it perfect for this hot time of the year. It can be really easy to find yourself falling into the habit of throwing on active wear because of its comfort; this is something I can totally relate to. Luckily, an outfit such as this can be equally comfortable and more fitting for when you’re not working out.

This casual summer look is the culmination of a few key pieces, all of which won’t break the bank, leaving you with a few bucks for that sweet treat that you definitely deserve! Her lightly destroyed denim shorts are American Eagle Outfitters, they are a must-have for any Fashionista. The light wash contrasts well with the darker striped tank top. Pink accents pull the outfit together from the pink stripe on her top, the pink of her Sperry boat shoes and the pink detail of her Steve Madden aviator-style sunglasses. What really takes this look to the next level is the personalized touches such as her go-to clutch, which has perfect colors for the season and the delicate earrings. This Fashionista is ready for whatever this summer day throws her way.

One Simple Change: Have plans extending later into the evening and afraid you’ll get chilly once the sun goes down? No problem. Switch the shorts for jeggings. This will achieve a similar style and keep you warmer. It is also an option for a daytime look if you’d rather not show so much leg.
