Shorts and a tank top


The 99-degree days have greatly affected my style this summer. I'm all about shorts and tank tops all the time. And a messy pulled up bun. Shorts, tank tops, pull up that bun and you're done. 

(In this photo: my tank is thrifted, shorts are from Target (I have thrifted zero shorts in my life. Thrifting shorts is hard.) and shoes are from H&M.)


It's not the most exciting of sartorial choices, but it's cool and comfortable, and that's what I'm all about right now.


Summer dressing for me is often about survival in the heat. I have more fun with clothes in the fall (so mild, still warm, not insanely hot) and the winter (so mild, we rarely get snow in my part of North Carolina). But summer has more parties and more watermelon and more barbecued chicken so I'll let it stick around for a while.

That tank sure looks comfy! And I agree that hair off the neck is a must for crazy hot days!

I have also thrifted zero shorts! They all look like diapers! However, I have made a good pair of shorts out of thrifted pants! But that's about the closest I've gotten! Cute summer outfit!

Your comments about the heat make me want to embrace the cool summer we're having here. But your no-nonsense shorts, top, bun, and fabulous shoes make the heat look bearable. Watermelon and barbecued chicken - that's the kind of summer I like!

this definitely has been the summer of cutoff shorts all over the USA, I just spent the last weekend in them for camping. You can't beat the heat without them

I have way more fun with fall clothes too. I just hate our southern heat! It lasts way too long. I understand wanting to wear shorts and tank tops all the time. I usually just suck it up and wear my regular clothes though - just sans layers!

Oooh, that top is gorgeous!
