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.

June Gloom

Anyone who lives in LA knows that June Gloom is a real thing. It’s chilly and overcast in the mornings and as the day goes on, it gets muggy, then it all clears up and is a typical sunny day. So, you can only imagine how hard it is to get dressed for weather like that! I’ve mostly been sticking to lightweight jeans and shirts that are topped off with a jacket around my waist. And as of late, I’ve been into wearing pinky-nudes and army greens together—the combo is sleek while still feeling summery.
