Summer Staples

{MiH striped tee, Abercrombie DIY shorts, Zara sandals (similar), Mossimo tote, H&M hat}

I live in denim cut offs and sandals in the summer. It’s my no fuss solution to the heat and it makes it pretty easy to get dressed everyday. As mentioned a couple weeks ago, I snagged my first pair of Zara shoes in a size 5. People, they NEVER have size 5, so I’m kinda freaking out. These fit my feet perfectly and although they aren’t the most comfortable, the leather softens up with each wear. I also recently swooped this MiH striped shirt on sale and could not be more obsessed. It’s on the thicker side, but I just adore the style and color. I’m warning you now, you’ll be seeing stripes galore on the blog this summer… sorryimnotsorry!

A quick note about these shorts. These were once a pair of flared destroyed Abercrombie jeans from way back when (I mean they’re flares, folks) turned denim shorts last year. I tend to DIY/destroy all of my jeans… I think it’s becoming a problem. But, I did do a phenom job with these and they’re currently my favorite pair. I might be the queen of recycling my jeans (I recently turned an old pair of bootcut jeans into boyfriend jeans, what?!). I think a distressed jean DIY is in the works and should be on the blog soon.
