What I’m Wearing: Summer Edition

June 14, 2021


Erin Schrader

Another week of sunshine, another reason to get dressed in allllll the summer things. Whether you’re back in the office or looking for casual WFH looks, heading on vacation or summer vacationing in the backyard – we’ve got you covered. Today I’m sharing two weeks worth of outfits that I’m wearing right now! From easy breezy maxi dresses to gym-ready looks and swimsuits you’ll be wearing all summer long– it’s all here. Grab your summer beverage of choice and let’s get dressed!

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, 125 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! 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!
