5 Summer OOTD's

by - July 01, 2022

Despite my best efforts, I only took five outfit pictures over the last two weeks, but I feel like I have a good excuse this time. It's been so hot, y'all, that I really have just been wearing shorts and t-shirts most days in an effort to stay as cool as possible. I can't remember the last time it's been this hot for this long. I mean, don't get me wrong, summers in the south can be brutal, but it's usually because of the humidity, not the actual temperatures. Truly, there's not been much worth sharing in the way of outfits during this heat wave.

The key to dressing in the summer, for me at least, is keeping things simple, and I have five really simple but cute outfits that should help you feel put together this summer without overheating.

Sizing: I'm 5'2" and weigh around 145 lbs. I typically wear size 6 or small/medium in clothing and size 7 in shoes.

This is one of my favorite purchases from last year. I love the bright colors, and the fit is spectacular. I especially like the way the bodice is made with the gathering down the middle. It helps smooth everything out for a really flattering fit. The straps are adjustable, it has pockets, and there's a side zipper (which I literally always forget about until I've already pulled it on). It comes in a ton of patterns. This is the Purple Mix Flo. I also have Black Floral 01. I'm wearing the medium. My sandals are really old, and I got them on clearance at that. Sadly, they're starting to wear out and I have not found a good replacement, so that's why they're not linked.

Tank / Shorts / Sandals (similar)

This is the flag tank I shared in my 4th of July Outfit Inspiration post last week. I really like that it's not a crisp, clean print like the Old Navy ones. I got the medium because I wanted a looser fit, although I will say that the length is a little awkward on me, hence why I knotted the hem.

I paired the tank with these distressed black denim shorts. I'd been wanting a pair and these have good reviews on Amazon. They come in dark and light blue and white denim, as well, and you can get different button-zipper combos. These are the A1 Iconic Black. I'm wearing the medium.

T-shirt (Wantable) / Skirt (similar) / Sandals

This is actually one of my favorite outfits from recent weeks. This t-shirt came in my first Wantable box, and I love it. It's such good quality and will mix into my existing wardrobe nicely. This skirt is from last year. It's got a built-in tie belt, which adds a nice little waist-defining detail. It also has embroidered flowers woven into it, which you can't really see unless you're seeing it in person.

T-shirt / Skirt (similar) / Sandals

This is the outfit that I'm probably most on the fence about in terms of how much I really like it. The color of the shirt is a perfect match to some of the flowers in the skirt's pattern, but I'm unsure if this particular pairing actually works or not. My skirt is a few years old but one of my favorites. I'm linking to a really similar one, except it's lined and a bit more delicate. I've got it in the yellow but love pretty much all of the options.

This skirt was also part of my 4th of July Outfit Inspiration. It's so good, y'all. It's not lined but the material is thick enough to not need it. It's got three tiers and pockets. The waist is elastic. I decided to keep this outfit pretty simple so that the skirt would be the star. I love this scoop neck tee by A New Day. I needed to update my white t-shirt this summer, and this is a good one.
