15+ Summer Outfits To Wear Right Now

July 11, 2020

Sweet sweet summertime – nothing says “I’m here” quite like summer when it brings with it 100% humidity and 95 degree temps. I’m hoping you can pick up on the flatness level of my hair and sweat rolling down the back of my legs by reading that [accurate visual]. Needless to say, if there’s a “cool” outfit to be worn, I’m game these days. Below are 15 recent-ish outfits I’ve been rocking, all for the summer months [and yes, several of them need steamed, adding that to my to-do list ;)]. If you’re looking for ways to stay looking hot while keeping cool, you’ve come to the right place my friends, you’ve come to the right place…

Before we get into all of the outfits, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 135 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits [literally every outfit housed in ONE spot] and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin! ps. If you’re here, I’m assuming you like a) clothes b) good deals on clothes. Every Tuesday we send out the top deals on the internet and believe me, it’s good. Want in on the list? Sign up here!
