What I’m Wearing: 10 Summer Outfits

July 10, 2021


Erin Schrader

And just like that, we’re halfway through summer! You know what they say– time flies when you’re having fun. While I’m certainly not one to rush through sunshine and blue skies, I am getting the slightest bit excited for sweaters and boots after previewing the 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. But that’s a chat for another time, friends. Until then, I’ll be soaking up the sun and sharing everything I’m wearing right now– from dresses and skirts to PJs and cover-ups, here are 10 Outfits for Summer to wear right now.

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!

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.
