We were in Vegas for the weekend and it was incredibly hot—we’re talking 113 degrees hot. No joke. I packed light dresses and high waisted shorts to get me through the heat, and surprisingly, I did alright. I mean, wearing a skin tight black bodysuit as my top probably wasn’t the smartest, but I envisioned wearing these shorts with it. And once I get an idea in my head, particularly an outfit, it’s hard for me to adjust my thinking.

High Waisted Anything

I’ve always been a fan of high waist shorts, skirts, and even pants, but especially in the summer. I, at least, always feel really put together and confident when I’m wearing something high waisted, because the cut accentuates my waistline and covers other areas that I’m not as confident with. And, I feel like you can almost always dress up a pair of high waisted shorts, like these. While they are pretty casual, I think even wearing them with heeled sandals similar to the ones I’m wearing, and swapping out a t-shirt for something more sleek, could easily translate into the perfect summer date night look.

The Ticket to a Perfectly Curated Summer Wardrobe

The ticket to a perfectly curated summer wardrobe? By adding lightweight, versatile pieces to it throughout the year, so by the time the new season rolls around, you’re prepared. Case in point: This trench—which I got at Forever 21—that has seriously been one of the best layering items ever to grace my closet. It’s easy to throw on over anything, keeps me cool enough during the day, but also comfortable during cooler evenings. I guess you could say that, yes, I’m slightly obsessed.
