Dallas is hot. Like can’t touch your steering wheel, fry an egg on the pavement, don’t even bother with make up bc you are only going to sweat it off hot. Once this level of heat has been reached, my goal while getting dressed in the morning is very simple. Wear an outfit with as much ventilation as possible. This American Eagle top achieves that goal with flying colors. Add my favorite nude bra and trusty cutoffs, and I’ve got an easy breezy summer outfit. I also added a cropped moto jacket because as all good Texans know, when it’s blazing outside that A/C is cranked inside. It’s a delicate balance between becoming a full on popsicle and melting, but I’m up for the challenge.

As soon as I found out that I would be heading to Bermuda, I immediately started planning outfits in my head. I knew that I wanted a ton of easy tropical dresses and cover-ups to match my the easy going vibes of the island. One idea in particular I became obsessed with was to wear a men's short sleeve button down on top of a bikini. I love repurposing menswear for my everyday wardrobe, so why shouldn't that apply to the beach? After several trips to the mall I finally happened upon this palm tree'd number at Forever 21, and I think the combo turned out super cute!

One of my go-to styling tricks a good matching set. My summers are beyond hectic, and if I am running late (which is often...only 5 mins away I swear!), I need to know that I have a few guaranteed to match outfits in my back pocket. I mean let's be honest, they are basically Garanimals for grown ups, but whatever consider me obsessed. Minimal effort and yet you look and feel completely put together slash chic. I love that this set in particular almost looks like a romper, which is perfect for me because as y'all know I have the longest torso this side of the Mason-Dixon. And style steal alert - this cami & short combo only costs $35 total at Kohl's. Need I say more?
