You could say I absolutely a-d-o-r-e this palm-tree-print t-shirt (see here and here). I break it out whenever I can, whether it's a hot, sweaty summer day or the dead of winter. There's something about those shades of green and blue that make me happy, even when things around me (and in the world at large) seem pretty chaotic. I'm not saying putting on a bright-colored t-shirt will solve all your problems (duh), but if it boosts your mood, then that's a win, right?
Embroidered shorts will totally elevate your favorite summery t-shirt (see some picks below if you're in need of one!) and make the once-casual top suddenly going-out ready. The Soludos wedges I'm wearing here give me a bit of height (they're not too high, so walking around in them is easy) and gold necklaces add a touch of glam that always looks so damn good with a white tee. Another reason why these shorts and this t-shirt go so well together: Since the bottoms are formfitting, I like the idea of wearing a top with a relaxed fit (and that's a bit more covered up). Balances everything out!

Here's to finding your perfect summer tee and embroidered shorts combo!

When it comes to wearability, practicality *and* just plain old prettiness, these are the ones you'll want...
The bell sleeves, the soft color ... plus, why bodysuits are the best (and easiest!) style pick.
And why you need one in your life 😉
They'll get you through the last few days of winter (the shoes, the phone case, the t-shirt, and more!)
Three lessons I learned from wearing this pom-pom top... plus, a cool way to layer when you're wearing ripped denim.
We could all use a wardrobe refresh right now, right? Especially one that costs nothing (but your creativity and a bit of your time)!
Your introvert side (no matter how big or small) is calling out for these tees.
If you could find a bestie in hat form, this would be it...

My love for this Uniqlo flannel continues for round two: the dressy version.
All the sunshiny flannel vibes. (Yes, it's a thing!)
A lightweight button up, boyfriends jeans, and white sandals = the most easy breezy, jet-setting #ootd, so you can focus on relaxing!
Bring your go-to tee to the next level with dressy shorts!
