We have officially reached the point of summer where I am doing my best to wear as little as possible while still trying to look decently put together (and not get arrested for public indecency. #goals).
So what is a girl to do when she is facing both a need to look cute and an attempt to avoid spontaneously combusting? Well, if that girl is me (aka the only girl I can really speak for), you reach for shorts and silky camis. And if that cami happens to be in a color you currently cannot get enough of (this red/coral/orange gorgeousness that I am full blown obsessed with), well that’s even better.
Hey, you can’t beat the heat, so you may as well join it!

I’m not gonna lie to you guys. In my heart of hearts, I am a classic, preppy creature. I love clean cut basics, button downs, and a nicely tucked shirt. And this outfit is, essentially, my attempt to pack up and move into the pages of a J Crew catalog. I love the white jeans with chambray – it feels like a summery version of a crisp white blouse with jeans. As a side note, if I knew I was going to be wearing them this much (as in, at least twice per week), I would have worked way harder to acquire white jeans sooner! I paired these summer basics with cognac and tortoise shell accessories (aka my favorites), and much like the increasingly baffling T Swift, I am definitely rocking that red lip, classic thing – and I definitely like it :).
