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!
