Casual Chic Summer Inspiration

I’ve found myself with a stunning lack of cute clothes for the summer. In the summer, outside of work, I like to wear stuff that is easy and comfortable, but still cute.  I plundered Pinterest for some inspiration.  I present you with my top ten finds.

A plain white t-shirt is a staple.  I love it with the burst of tangerine. I like my shorts a smidge longer than those, but overall, this outfit looks easy peasy lemon squeezy.  And cute.

Navy and coral is a stunning combo. And I’ll never turn down a striped shirt.  Up for debate:  Is 39 too old for coral shorts??

Oh, I would wear the crap out of that white shirt.  It’s so chic and flattering, but still laid back.  It’s all like, “Hey, I’m your white t-shirts older cousin. I still go with everything, but I’ll make you look a bit refined.  No one has to know I’m just easy to throw on as your tattered t-shirt”.

LOLO Moda: Spring summer fashion


This dress is outstanding.  The proportions looks so right with that thick waist band and the v-neck that will be flirtatious, but not letting it all hang out.  Another debate:  “Is 5’2″ too short for a maxi dress?”.



Summer Denim Shirt

White jeans are a classic summer pick.  More orange/tangerine here, which I love.  I’m also planning on taking my chambray button down with me everywhere I go because I have a fear of being stuck in a freezing, air conditioned mall or movie theatre with nothing to throw over myself.
Cute summer outfit!! created by suzanne-garcia-doherty on Polyvore

A denim skirt is great any time of year, but especially summer.  It’s an upgrade from your shorts if you want to look a bit more polished with 0% more work put into getting dressed.  This outfit also looks patriotic to me, so it would be great for the 4th of July.
Tribal Skater Dress

I’m obsessed with this dress.  I just know it would look great on any figure (again with the high and wide waist), the print is G.O.R.G.E and it looks light and airy for a super hot day.  Also, I have a secret to share with you about dresses.  In the summer, there is nothing in your closet that is easier to put on than a dress.  You will be cooler than you would be in any other outfit choice, you will look totally pulled together and it literally takes like a second to pull one over your head.  Instant cute outfit without even thinking about it.

Casual look in summer days

Again, slightly obsessed with this dress.  I’m concerned about the V neck on my little frame, but if this fit me right, I would potentially wear it every other day (only every other because I would be wearing the dress above it on the off days).  And you could change this up with different accessories so easily.  A scarf one day,  a statement necklace the next, floppy hat for a day in the sun, change up the belt for a punch of color…  The possibilities are endless.

Memorial Day at the PoolAlthough it’s not my favorite thing in the world, a bathing suit is a necessity for summer.  If I must wear one, it might as well be simple and classic.  And that white caftan cover up is awesome.

That’s my dream closet for the summer.  What do you plan on wearing this summer?
