Summer Style: Skirts and T-shirts


During the summer months it’s hard to feel “cute”.

With temperatures landing at over 100 degrees our bodies feel icky, sweaty and gross.  Our personal style seems to hit an embedded “comfy” default button and we end up in gear that is everything BUT stylish.

One of my go-to ways to stay fashionable yet cool during those scorching months is pairing a graphic t-shirt with a light fun, fancy skirt.

It is an easy way to create a pulled together look that requires little effort, keeps you cool and packs a big punch.


I am a big fan of circle skirts that hit midi-length.  They have a classic summer silhouette that gives off a sweet yet chic vibe.

The key to pairing circle skirts with graphic tees is to use your inner matchmaking skills.  You want the pieces to have a common thread but not be too matchy matchy (you know how much I hate that).  The Vacay The Premises Tee I’m wearing has just enough common ground with the floral midi to work perfectly together.


Don’t forget the shoes!  The shoes are the most important part because they will tie it all together.

I am bonkers over Swedish Hasbeens.  For me they are the biggest fashion bright point of summer. Drawing their inspiration from the ’70′s, you may remember Dr. Scholl’s exercise sandals that were so popular then, Swedish Hasbeens are like Dr. Scholl’s on fashion steroids!

Ultra chic Swedish Hasbeens shoes are made by artisans in an old traditional way in small factories that have made shoes for decades under sustainable conditions, out of pure, natural wood . This makes every shoe a unique and sustainable work of art.

Comfortable, made for durability and screaming effortless Spring/Summer chic I can’t get enough of Swedish Hasbeens!  So obsessed, I have been known to build my entire outfit around these shoes!


Sometimes a look needs and exclamation point at the end of it.

It’s easy to just toss on some jewelry but that can feel heavy and cumbersome in the summer.

I like to add a pop of color and a little extra style with hair accessories and THE biggest summer must-have, sunglasses.

To up the ante on your hair, twist scarves are an ultra-versatile, carefree way to make your hair look like you did more with it than you did!  The wire inside of them is easy to manipulate and they stay in place without that “headache” you can get from typical headbands.

For your eyes, try something different and make a statement with a colored lens.  It adds a little summer whimsy and helps you to see the world in a whole new way- literally.
