WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

Southern California is known for its beautiful beaches and perpetual sunny weather. If you’re not from here, this may seem like a dream come true. But be weary, the west coast is not all sandy shores and perfect temperatures. In the summer, it gets hot. The type of hot that makes you want to crawl out of your skin to let it air out while you take a nap in a pool. That being said, it becomes difficult to dress how you want, while still staying comfortable enough to endure the humidity.

This Fashionista converted her on-the-go lifestyle easily into a simple, yet trendy look for a full summer’s day. Rocking a breezy top and pinstriped high-waisted shorts, both from Forever 21, she stays cool in temperature while looking cool in style. A sweet pair of shorts are the perfect way to go when trying to keep the heat levels down. You can then create the rest of your outfit around that piece just as this Fashionista did with her morning coffee date ensemble. To finish her look off, she added a leather tote purse from Urban Outfitters and some comfy ballet flats to carry her through it all.

One Simple Change: If you’re constantly on the go, (and guilty of practically living out of your car like myself) throw on an oversized open knit cardigan or switch out the shorts for a pair of chino pants. This look can easily be taken from a refreshing morning to a day of brunch.
