So I never really got the opportunity to do a summer look book for you guys, even though I was dying to. I really really was. But I figured I could conjure up the next best thing, and make an Outfit Of the Week post, sharing with you all what I’ve been wearing on a regular basis.
I ran a voting post on my twitter: (@JeSuisArt) and I got some good feedback saying that a fall/back to school lookbook would be very interesting! So I will definitely get that going for yall. Follow me on Twitter so you can see some more stuff, and even have a deciding factor in what you’d like to see on my blog! I love getting feedback and hearing from y’all.
So let’s get started. Basically, in the summer my wardrobe consists of a lot of T-shirts, shorts, and the every occasional killer outfit. It can be very hard to style statement pieces in the heat, but sometimes I get lucky. The week below was a compilation of these outfits. I hope you like them.
This is definitely one of my favorite outfits. I got lucky one day and found this adorable graphic crop top. And then, I remembered these white linen shorts. So comfy, let me tell you. But as I stood in the mirror, it just felt like something was missing. I felt overexposed basically. And you know what I say, “when in doubt, wear a button down”. I threw on the oversized button down, and viola. A super amazing outfit was born.
The fit itself was comfy, but paired with the oversized shirt, it got borderline heat stroke hot. So although I loved this look for the first hour or two of my day, it became kind of unrealistic as the sun got higher and higher in the sky. Nevertheless, it’s definitely an outfit I love.
See that smile? That’s the smile of a girl who IS NOT dying of heat stroke. This outfit was inspired by my work schedule. All my coworkers probably have seen my favorite T’s by now, seeing as I am an outfit repeater. Since I was working this day, I decided to make sure I was comfortable, wearing this oversized shirt (so soft) and these dark wash denim shorts (so flattering). Shoutout to Jo’s for letting me wear shorts. I can’t wait for our NTCC location to open!!
Please ignore my hair in these pictures. My hair was perfect when I left my house, but the humidity got the better of it. The headband helped, like I metioned it would in my Tips for Lazy girls post. <<<check out that post for some super cute tips!! But anyway, back to the outfit. Even though this T-shirt dress is long sleeve, it has been a staple this summer. The fabric is lightweight, the fit is loose (unless you wear a cute belt on your waist like I do), and it’s easy to just throw on. Simple, chic, and breathable.
Dresses are an easy heat fix in the summer. It’s a way to be covered, but also have freedom, and breathability. I love sundresses, and lately midi dresses have been my rage.
See it!? There’s that not dying of heat stroke smile again. I went out to dinner with my book club girls so I wanted to get a bit dressed up. This dress, as you loyal followers will know, is from 2020Ave. The olive green cardigan is from deep within the depths of my closet (I have no idea where it came from, but you could easily find a similar one in your local thrift store). To add some styling I tied the cardigan into a knot in front of my chest. I think it just adds a little sum. And the DRESS! Let’s zoom in on this print.
Get can’t enough!! Can’t get enough of this stunning fabric. So easy to style, and so east to transition among the seasons. Definitely proud of this outfit.
If you follow me on Instagram (emmakaty_) you would have seen this outfit not too long ago. As you can tell, the sun was especially bright that day. This is perhaps the best outfit of this whole week in my opinion. Let me explain why:
This is kind of just me walking around in pajamas. Oversized shirt. Super soft shorts. What else does a girl need? I love the mix of the yellow words and blue fabric shorts. I just think the combination is artistic, if that makes sense. This outfit has all the elements of fashion needed to stunt. Colors, silhouette, comfortable, breathable, adorable, affordable unique, and it’s really basically PAJAMAS. It does not get any better than that my friends.
Comment and let me knkw which one is your favorite!! You have a pretty diverse #OOTW to choose from. This is literally my style all the time, constantly changing. I like to keep everyone on their toes. But I’m always stylish. Thanks for reading!!
