Hey, hi, howdy friends! I feel like summertime is so amazing that everyone wants to celebrate the season every moment (myself included). This means my schedule is full AF which gives me little time to take care of this tiny nook of the internet. My July is looking even fuller than June! Last week was the holiday weekend, this weekend is Taste of Chicago, next weekend my brother is having his DJ debut, and the weekend after is a good friend’s wedding! AHHHH!
All these summertime activities mean I need to nail down the perfect summer look. I talked about my go-to casual work outfit, but here’s my go-to weekend style. Comfy, cute, and casual. Well, this striped number hits all three.
Outfit details: Striped Tee // Levis (thrifted) // Platform Sneakers
Between all of the aforementioned activities, hubby and I have been shooting some content here and there.
Now let’s chat about this effortless, all-American summer look. I made these denim Levi denim cut-offs a while back from a thrifted pair of old man jeans I grabbed for a whopping $4 from Village Discount. Cutting them is easier than you might think. I followed this tutorial.
I’m going to tell you a #shortgirlhack that I’ve been practicing for years! I come in at 5’5.” Well…probably closer to 5’4.5″ if we’re being honest, and my torso is actually pretty short because of it. So when it comes to scoring the perfect top for my short-ass torso, I go straight to cropped tops. That’s right homies! A lot of the casual crop tops at H&M and Forever 21 actually hit me right at the waist. SCORE! Paired with some high waisted shorts, and there’s no way this pasty ass tummy will see the light of day.
Have any of you tried grabbing cropped tops in lieu of full-length ones? Tell me some other short girl hacks that I can use!
