This week's OOTW features a few of the pieces that are always in heavy rotation in my spring/summer capsule wardrobes. Without fail, year after year a few great tees, a pair of denim cut-offs and airy blouses always make the cut and this year is no different. Below, I've broken down each look along with links when available.
Also, I mentioned last week that I wanted to change up the format of these posts a little with outfit stills and flatlays. Well, this week I was able to take some outfit stills but couldn't quite find the right back drop for my flatlays. I've got a few in the works for next week so hopefully I'll have that locked down soon but in the meantime, I had to forgo them for this post.
This first look features a new addition to my wardrobe that I can NOT get enough of!
The Grana short sleeve silk shirt was kindly sent to me by the lovely Grana team and I couldn't be happier with it.
In fact, I have a project 1-4-4 in the works for this piece coming up but for now, I've been wearing it with everything from shorts to jeans to skirts and I know it will be a staple in my closet year-round.
Look 2 features another Grana piece and my favorite denim jacket.
As someone who gets cold easily, jackets and sweaters are a must when braving the intense A.C. that's usually blasting everything this time of year. For this look, I draped the denim jacket over my shoulders a la fashion bloggers everywhere and topped it off with a great statement necklace and comfy sandals. The addition of a barrette kept my hair out of my face all day.
This third look is one of my favorite ways to dress up a pair of denim cut-offs.
For me, I find that the addition of a third piece like a blazer, hat, scarf or necklace is a must to keep me from feeling sloppy.
In this case I opted for my new floral blazer from ASOS and a pair of comfy pointy toe flats to polish it off.
Next up is another look featuring the Grana short sleeve silk shirt. This time I paired it with my pale green lace skirt from J.Crew that I've had for years. This combination is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
There's just something about the pale green and off white that make me feel perfectly at home. The older that I get, I find that I truly gravitate towards neutral colors more and more to feel polished and sophisticated with minimal effort.
If you've been following me for a while then you'll certainly remember these chino pants from LOFT that I picked up last year.
I love these pants because they're super comfortable but also flattering and easy to pair with a multitude of pieces. I wear them at least once a week during the warmer weather.
Here, I paired them with my newish lace shirt from Zara and black espadrilles.
This last look is a super casual combo that I love to wear when I want to feel like I'm wearing jeans and tee but not necessarily look like it.
This ruffle top from Zara is a personal fave because it's super lightweight and breathable and the details make it feel more special than a typical summer blouse.
Plus, the pale blue color is easily my favorite color.
Like always I filmed a little OOTW video to go along with this post. I've embedded it below for you and I hope you enjoy!
