My Favorite Shoes of the Summer

I wore this dress on my insta-stories the other day and received so many questions about it and wanting to see the full look. The fit and silhouette of this midi dress are absolutely stunning! Because I am not that tall, some midi dresses can look dowdy on me but the fitted bodice and slit up one side make this dress so chic and more my style. If you are not that busty, the smocking on the top is incredibly supportive so no bra is needed.

The shoe MVP of the summer is definitely these clear heels from Zara. To be honest, I am really hoping the clear trend stays around because I absolutely love the look. I have worn these shoes a TON this summer (here are a few of the ways I styled them: with flared jeans, with a red jumpsuit, with mom jeans, with a white jumpsuit, with wide leg pants and with knee length denim shorts, ) and definitely plan to wear them again next year. For more of a subtle clear option, I have these sandals and love how comfortable they are.

A T-Shirt, Shorts and Sneakers But Make It Cute

Tee – Chaser (similar tee here, here and here) | Shorts – Agolde (I tried these on and they are a great less expensive option) | Sneakers – Golden Goose (similar here and $30 similar version here) | Bag – Gucci | Hat – Janessa Leone (similar here and here) | Bracelet – Giles & Brother

 

I think many people associate being comfortable with not looking put together or cute. And may believe that those two things cannot exist together in an outfit. I wholeheartedly disagree. There are so many ways to dress comfortably but not look messy or sloppy or dress in clothes you don’t like. Wearing a t-shirt, shorts and sneakers seems like an outfit that doesn’t need much thought put into it, or one that isn’t fun to wear but that does not have to be the case. Graphic tees are everywhere now and can be a great way to make a comfy t-shirt more interesting. Same goes for sneakers – boring ol’ athletic sneakers are not the only options out there anymore. There are a ton of printed sneakers in all patterns and colors (and all price points) that are comfortable and can elevate your outfit. Adding a hat or statement bag can be another way to make a super casual look more fashionable and chic, but not always necessary.
Try to think of your casual and comfortable looks as just as important as your work looks or evening looks and you will slowly build up a wardrobe of things you love to wear. And then no matter the occasion – a day in the park, running weekend errands, going to an amusement park, etc – you will feel just as fabulous.
