What I Wore: Summer Uniform

Since it gets over 100-degrees in Fresno in the summer I hardly ever wear jeans this time of year. My legs need to be freeeee! The idea of skinny jeans in the summer sounds claustrophobic! Last summer I was all about dresses and skirts and this year my go-to uniform of sorts has been based around shorts. Thanks to Old Navy I've been living in shorts, shorts and more shorts. (I may have bought four out of the five colors of these shorts.)

In love with these moccasins! Usually I wear nothing but sandals in the summer (again, my toes need to feel freeeeee) but I've been wearing these babies quite often since snagging them on the big road trip.

cardigan: Old Navy (a necessity for my freezing cold office)
button-down gingham: Target
shorts: Old Navy
whistle necklace: Etsy, a birthday present from Jimaie 
moccasins: Minnetonka via a random road side shop in Arizona

For some reason the colors in this outfit reminded me of a camp uniform, which made me think of The Baby-Sitter's Club Super Special # 2: Baby-sitters' Summer Vacation. You know, the one where the girls went to Camp Mowak and Stacey gets Poison Ivy and Mary Ann almost gets her ears pierced. OK, fine, so I may have re-read that one not too long ago.

What's your go-to outfit in the summer?

My go-to in the summer is dresses! LOVE wearing dresses all day every day in the summer. So easy to throw on and so comfortable :)

You are adorable and I love you :) I'm sorta jealous that you work in a freezing office so that you get to wear a cardigan everyday still! I love how you can rock the neutrals so well, I always feel like I look dumpy but you always look so dang great when you wear them!

p.s. Abbie is a prettty dang cute accessory no? :D

p.p.s. BLOG MORE WOMAN! (no pressure) ;)

Oh, my gosh. That is the cutest outfit ever. Dang, I need to get some of those shorts! I'm jealous!

As for me, I'm living in anything that doesn't feel ridiculously confining. (Tough stuff these days.) When I'm at home I live in this J. Crew hand-me-down dress that I got from a clothing swap. It's so flowy and comfy for hot days!
