While it is true that just last week, I came out in favor of black clothes for summer, the truth is I’m also quite drawn to white when the weather gets gross and sticky. You just feel cooler and crisper in it, and of course you are. I think this drawstring dress seems just exceptionally breezy, and it definitely looks pricier than it is.
And speaking of pricey, these Nili Lotan army pants are not especially cheap, but they’re just so good.
A sleeveless tee dress that looks like it’d be great as a beach cover-up.
I actually really prefer synthetic EVA Birkenstocks to the ones that are made with leather and cork, cause they’re lighter and somehow cooler to wear, and you don’t get sweaty footprints like one does with so many summer sandals. I also very much appreciate that they’re priced just a hair under $45, which is maybe just cheap enough to purchase them in more than one color?
These straight pants taper slightly (and stylishly) at the ankle. I also dig the loose fit.
Another tee dress with a pretty, easy silhouette and empire waist.
This pineapple-embroidered shirt is slightly nutty, but in a really good way, I think.
I think the sleeves on this cool linen shirtdress are the perfect summer length. If I didn’t already own a menagerie of white shirtdresses, I’d totally go for it.
This henley tee has more buttons than your average henley tee, which I think is pretty cool-looking.
White jeans that aren’t too tight are my jam, and I like the frayed hem too.
For cool late afternoons at the beach: a long-sleeved tee with thumb holes, which I’m always a fan of.
This Madewell popover would be so crisp paired with white jeans.
These drawstring boyfriend jeans are in my cart even as I type—they’re just rather excellently slouchy.
A drawstring popover from Vince that’s good if you don’t feel like tucking your top in, but still want to look polished.
Ultralight jogger pants from Xirena, for days that are too hot for jeans.
This is a pretty perfect short-sleeved button-down, and I like the double pockets.
Such a cute jumpsuit, with just enough of a sleeve to be flattering, for those of you who can’t abide anything sleeveless.
And here’s a light-as-air dress that’s nicely feminine but also nicely streamlined.
A linen trench that looks crazy chic and expensive, but in reality is from Cos.
