Collar, sunglasses and sweater from H&M, shorts c/o sheinside.com (similar), Xhilaration bag (dream version in orange), and Zara colorblock heels (nice alternative)
This summer I've been inspired by minimal ensembles everywhere from people I spot on the street to images I glimpse on Instagram and Pinterest. By minimal, I mean no print mixing, layering, or unpredictably paired pieces. Just basics with a twist. For instance, this basic ivory sweater actually shows some restraint on my behalf, considering that my first thought was to wear a contrasting floral print top with the shorts. Regarding silhouettes, the combination of fitted shorts with a roomy top and heels is still a go-to summer look for me. I find the juxtaposition of short shorts with a loose knit or roomy blouse to be a refreshing and seasonally appropriate change of pace from my oft-worn skinny jeans and ankle boots.
