Real Outfit Roundup: 5 Casual Summer Outfits

by - June 17, 2021


Wow. It's been awhile since I've done one of these, and I must admit that I've been horrible about taking daily outfit pictures, but in my defense it has been a busy last several weeks. These outfits are from the last three weeks, when I actually took a few minutes to snap a photo in front of the mirror in my office. They're a pretty good representation of my typical summer style, especially when I'm not going anywhere. Let's get started, shall we?

Sizing info: I'm 5'2" and typically wear size 6 or medium in most clothes and size 7 in shoes.

We're going all the way back to May 27 for this outfit. Looking at my planner, I had a pretty full day in the office plus a late afternoon dentist appointment. I don't remember much about the day except for the dentist appointment, but I think Alexis and I might have gone to the library and then to lunch afterward, but that really could have been a completely different day.

Anyway, my shirt is from a couple summers ago and my shorts are from last year, but I'll link to something similar for both.

This dress is also old, but I haven't been able to wear it in quite awhile. Thanks to yoga, I can comfortably wear it again and I'm so excited. According to my planner, I didn't have anything planned for this particular day other than a handful of things that I ended up shifting to the next day. I legit don't remember why I moved things around, though, or what I did instead.

I saw on a blog I follow that muscle tanks are on trend this summer. That style doesn't work well on me - too boxy for my shoulders - but I do love a good tank, and I could not resist this one. This outfit is actually from last week, Monday to be exact, and it was a very busy Monday. Not only was it Alexis's first day of camp, but I had quite a bit to do for work. This tank was comfy, the arm holes weren't too big, and I stayed mostly cool all day. It comes in a bunch of different designs.

My shorts are a couple years old, but they're by Time and Tru at Walmart and I love them, especially the fact that they're made from recycled material. My sneakers are actually still available in all sizes and only $15.

This shirt is from a recent Amazon haul. It's not my typical style of t-shirt but I saw it and fell in love. I can't explain it, but it happened. It says Go Get Em, which I didn't realize until it was delivered but I'm not mad. It's really soft and fits the way I like my t-shirts to fit. It comes in a bunch of different versions, but this is the 01 Dark Grey. These shorts are actually my favorite pair, but unfortunately Universal Thread didn't bring them back this year. My Converse are a seasonal color, so keep checking their site if you want a pair.

Dress / Shoes (similar)

I wore this dress over the weekend. We went to lunch and a couple of stores, but didn't do much else. I started the day with my fave yellow wedges to match the yellow in the center of the flowers, but after lunch I changed into my black sneakers. The dress is a cotton-polyester blend, so it's got a little bit of stretch but not much. The straps are adjustable and it has pockets. The bust is gathered, which helps give my smaller chest a little more definition. It comes in several colors/patterns.
