Crop Top + High Waisted Shorts

Top – JC Penney / Shorts – Abercrombie / Sandals – Kohl’s

Correct me if I’m wrong…but the unofficial summer time uniform consists of crop tops & high waisted shorts. It’s really no surprise that demin shorts are the staples of summer fashion. The right pair can accentuate your legs and also make your behind look good (which is always a plus – ha!). The one I am wearing are actually from Abercrombie’s kid section (petite people problems). They are great because they hide my tummy. With more coverage around the waist, pairing it with a crop top seems like the natural fit. Together this combo is perfect for the effortlessly cool gal. It’s a laid-back kind of outfit that beats the summer heat in style! ~bBeInspireful - Highwaisted Shorts10BeInspireful - Highwaisted Shorts12

Summer Glow Outfit

Wet Seal Eyelet Dress – $8 // Kohl’s Beige Sandals – $10 // BaubleBar Necklace

Summer has a way of bringing out the natural glow in all of us. Maybe it’s the sun kiss tans or the carefree vibe that permeates the air but it is easily one of my favorite seasons.  The next few blog posts will be pictures from my summers in Ohio featuring some cute outfits (of course!). Cornfields, country back roads, and sunshine are all quintessential to my small hometown and I can’t wait to share parts of it  with you guys!BeInspireful - Summer Glow 11BeInspireful - Summer Glow 10For the first pictures in the series, I am wearing a cream eyelet dress. It’s very simple but also charming and flattering. In the summer time you can easily look put-together by throwing on a basic dress. You don’t have to be fussy about matching bottoms, making it an easy go-to option.  Also, look for white and cream colors so you can show off your glowing tan! To finish off my outfit, I just wore some beige sandals and a layered necklace. Uncomplicated accessories put more emphasis on the dress and the individual wearing it!BeInspireful - Summer Glow 12

All in all, I love this effortless ensemble because it has a touch of femininity. It’s soft and sweet – perfect for any summer day. ~b
