Haul and Try On

It is 90 degrees everyday here in Charleston and, being from Chicago, was not prepared for the heat. more than half my wardrobe is composed of sweaters and pants. So I needed to pick up some pieces that I could wear in the heat of summer in Charleston. I figured I would try them on and let y’all know where I got them! Keep in mind I didn’t buy all of these at once, but I have collected them through the past month or so. Click the photos linked to where you can get these and similar pieces!

The first thing I focused on were shorts. I needed some shorts that fit me properly and were fun so I picked these up from Francesca’s. I loved the contrast of the seersucker fabric and the warmer hued embroidery. Plus they are super light and comfy.

Again in the shorts category, I needed a staple pair of jean shorts and found these American Eagle light-wash denim shorts on ThredUp. I was also lacking some good tees that I could just throw on when its too hot to worry about clothes. I found this adorable Truly Madly Deeply shirt which I connect with on a spiritual level. Anyone who knows me knows I pretty much am a dog. I paired these with my Converse.

Another cute tee I found at H&M that I am obsessed with is this pineapple shirt with the words ‘Always Be Happy.’ This shirt also works with the denim shorts and Converse!

On the nicer side, I picked up these classic J. Crew shorts in pink. These are such a nice material and are light enough for those hot days when I need to be less casual. I also picked up this staple tee from H&M.

In one of my previous posts, The Tassel Trend, I showcased this amazing necklace. Here I paired it with one of my favorite new shirts. This seafoam Piko shirt is made of 100% bamboo making it, not only sustainably sourced, but incredibly soft and light. I paired it with a new pair of white jeans from Francesca’s which are my favorite pair of pants at the moment.

One of the newest additions to my closet is this amazing top from Madewell. I am obsessed with denim tops and dresses because I feel like it mixes up an outfit and makes it interesting. I also paired this top with the white jeans.

Lastly, I needed a new delicate gold necklace so I picked this up from a local boutique and I am obsessed. It is the perfect shade of gold with little crystals for accents. It goes with everything and makes a look more sophisticated.

I hope this gave you some fun ideas about what I am wearing in this heat!
