While I’m still not quite over my slump of lazy dressing (we got another cold/rainy week and it’s not helping) I thought I would share my favourite spring to summer transition pieces. They’re nothing new and you probably already have them in your closet but here are the reason why I love to wear them now and how to continue to wear them all summer.
The first is a man’s white dress shirt. I know you are probably sick of me writing about these but they are just that amazing. There’s a perfect one for every season; for spring try a crisp, lightweight one that can easily be worn in the summer as well. Pairing it with a skinnies jeans works perfect for those cooler days. You can also put a belt over it if you want to give it a little bit of shape but that’s not really my style. I prefer to let it hang, give it a loose tuck or tie the ends for a very 60’s summer vibe. The light fabric won’t have you sweating in the sun and paired with shorts it’s very girl-next-door-tomboy.
Let’s move on. The second piece is a pair of jean shorts. I shouldn’t have to say you can pretty much swap them for your favourite blue jeans, they will be just as versatile. Super easy for the summer and in the mean time pair them with tights if you can’t stand to be out in bare legs, otherwise just throw on a men’s sweater to keep the chill at bay.
