Spring, Style, Summer

Quite Possibly My Favorite Summer Outfit

Classic. That’s what this is. Boots, jeans, and a super cute tank top? Give me a concert, or a barbecue, or a road trip, or a date night… give me any summer occasion and I’m set.

I’m typically not a fan of shorter tops, but I absolutely love this one!! It’s breezy, easy to layer with a cardigan, and the ruffle bottom is just precious. It’s also ultra flattering, and doesn’t make me feel like I need to constantly be aware of how tight my jeans are hugging my stomach (let’s refer back to those summer barbecues where you might have an entire watermelon to yourself;)). And it’s from Natural Life. I raved about that company here and here and mentioned them a lot here, because it’s just that great of a company. That alone automatically makes it one of my favorite shirts.

And is there any other type of boot that is acceptable to wear year round? Cowboy boots are like the trump card against all other boots, the Ace in War. They always win. Throwing them on with jeans automatically adds an instant southern feel to an outfit, give you an extra dose of confidence, and make you seem like someone others might want to be friends with. At least, that’s how it works for me.

As for the jewelry, both the necklace and the earrings came in my latest Rocksbox. I’m truly surprised by how much I’ve worn the necklace; it just happens to go with everything I wear! It’s so dainty and simple that it’s great at complimenting a look without taking away from any top or accessory you want to be the focal point. (I also happened to find it for only $12, and plan on making it a permanent addition to my necklace collection #nevertoomany.) These earrings though, they’ve been the featured item for so many dresses lately. I’m finding that teal goes with basically everything this time of year. I shared my love for Rocksbox a couple of weeks ago, but I highly recommend giving it a go! Remember, you can try it out for a month free with the code “darlingdearestblogxoxo”:)!

What’s your go-to summer outfit for everything under the sun?
