What I Wore Wednesday - Summer's Here!

Let's just all take a moment to let out a huge sigh of relief that summer is finally here. 

Summer is my favorite. Fall is a close second, but I just love summer. Nothing makes me happier than jean shorts, flip flops, and sundresses. The season (and everything that comes with it) simply cannot be beat. I've been taking advantage of the warmer days & have been busting out my favorite summer items - both old & new. Here are a few of my favorite summer outfits so far... 

I bought this dress before we went to Florida in March, but I never got the chance to wear it on vacation. Thus, I was a little excited to pull it out of my closet & finally wear it two weeks ago! I've worn it again since, and I've gotten tons of compliments on it each time. I love it for school because it has a modest neckline & a full back. It's very difficult to find school appropriate maxis, so this was heaven sent!

This was another look that I got a lot of compliments on, which seems funny to me because it is beyond simple & actually happened by chance. I was running really late last week & needed to get dressed fast. So, I did what I always do when I'm in a rush & reverted to basic black. I've had the dress since student teaching, but it's insanely comfy & has held up surprisingly well. (I truly believe Gap had higher quality expectations back then...) Anyway, I threw it on with my favorite wedges & put my hair up in a topknot. Voila! I even ended up with time to take selfies.

This is what I wore for my birthday dinner on Saturday night. The restaurant we went to isn't dressy, so I paired my favorite distressed jeans with a black top & my wedges. I threw on an old necklace & grabbed my favorite big bag so I could carry my coat along. This is an outfit I'll definitely be repeating throughout the warm summer nights.

And last but not least, I wasn't planning on sharing this outfit, but I had a few questions about it, so I'll oblige. I found the shorts at the Gap Outlet while I was in Florida for dirt cheap, but I just saw that they have a very similar pair in stores right now! My chambray henley is from J.Crew & is such a closet staple. I've paired it with just about every pair of shorts I own, as well as multiple pairs of colored jeans. It's so versatile & worth a splurge.
