For start.. don’t these photos sort of look like a pop up book? (Just the way it’s edited.. idk.. lol)
One of my summer staples this year has been my denim cutoffs. In general I find it incredibly hard to shop for shorts.. I don’t know why.. but either I don’t like the fit, the length, wash and or the price.. lol So I took matters into my own hands.. found a pair of jeans that I like the fit and the wash of.. and cut them to the length I wanted and BOOM! #instashorts lol I really like how they turned out! And the actual pair of jeans only cost me $15 or €11,25!!
I know that this looks like your basic typical chunky knit shawl collar cardi.. but its made out of CASHMERE!!! lol plus this cardi has the cool nautical stripes on the arm and the button details on each wrist. It’s definitely a cool/practical piece to add to the wardrobe especially in the upcoming months.

I think fedoras are a classy addition to any look! I’ve always really liked the whole blazer over a v-neck combo; It’s a a great way to step up an otherwise really casual look! I guess I’m growing up.. lol I’ve never really owned fancy dress shoes.. lol but recently I’ve been accruing a nice little collection of them.. lol which include these bad boys from Bata. :D

I like how denim jackets and denim shirts have made a huge come back! I know a lot of people might think that denim would be too heavy to wear in the hot summer months however there are different denim weights to consider. Lighter weight denim is going to be a good choice for summer and the heavier weighted denim is better suited for when it’s colder. The denim shirt I choose from H&M is extremely lightweight and I thought it looked pretty cool over the knitted striped hoodie.
The belt I really like because it’s made out of nautical rope. I liked that it was just noticeably different and I thought it went well with the overall theme of the look. The shorts are just 100% prep.. there is no way around it.. lol The mint green color is very in the moment. I thought the embroidered moose were a cool detail. And finally the shoes.. for some reason during the summer I tend to gravitate to lighter colored shoes.. I picked these boating shoes up from my trip to Florence earlier this year. I don’t believe in impulse buys.. and these were most definitely an impulse buy.. however I have no regrets lol ;)

My favorite piece in this look is the horizontal striped dress shirt. For some odd reason.. Red + white stripe shirts in my mind somehow always make me think of summer.. lol Overall this look is classic. The blue cardigan layered over the dress shirt creates that extra element of visual interest but also serves a purpose on a practical level. The hairstyle works incredibly well with this look!
