Happy Wednesday loves! We are beginning to wind down on the final few weeks of summer (*sad face*), however I’m a bit excited for Fall to come. Don’t get me wrong I looooove Summer, but I hate humidity. NYC can get very humid, which in turn makes people get all sticky and nasty.
Unbeknownst to me at the time, I decided to pick one of the hottest days of the week to shoot some OOTD pics. I won’t lie it was a bit rough because the sun was beaming! Nonetheless, my photographer and I pushed through it. We were by the water in Dumbo and the view was beautiful, so it wasn’t that bad.
Every women should own a pair of nice black shorts and I think I found my pair. When I first saw these on H&M’s website, I immediately had to add them to my cart. These are very loose fitting which I love because I tired of wearing shorts that are suffocating my thighs and I also like the “elastic” (it doesn’t stretch much, so its faux elastic) and tie detail.
You can dress these shorts up with a nice fitted blouse or a loose option like the one I’m wearing or you can dress it down with a cami and duster vest or a graphic tee. I decided to go with this top from the Target x Who What Wear collection, because I am a sucker for a bow blouse and I thought it would pair with the shorts very nicely. I was going for a clean, polished look; hence the pearls and the tied back hair (new hair, who dis?!).
This outfit would go very nicely with a nice pair of heels, however I opted out of wearing heels since I wanted to be comfortable and these lace up flats from Call It Spring still keeps the outfit looking very polish. I wanted to add a pop of color to the look, so I incorporated this beautiful cobalt blue cross body from Kate Spade Saturday.
This look might be my go to look for the summer. You can take it from day to night! What’s your go to outfit for the summer?
