 Y'all I'm seriously mad for plaid right now!
Yesterday June Gloom officially happened. For those of you who aren't Angeleno's, during the month of June Los Angeles is completely gloomy and overcast for the first 1/4 to 1/2 of the day until Mr. Golden Sun decides to come out and play. Some day's it's nice because it actually feels like it might rain, but for the other mornings it's rather dismal.

Although I'm being a complete pessimistic Patty right now, I actually do enjoy the overcast days in a sense because they make our hot summer days tend to be a little cooler than normal, hence the long sleeve shirt! 


One of my favorite combo's is a pair of shorts, wedges and a great long sleeve tee to keep you a little warmer on those chilly days; however, this also works for hot Summer days when you're shopping and the AC in the mall is about ready to make you pull our your winter coat! Y'all know what I mean!

Speaking of shorts, if you're like me and have a tiny waist with bigger hips/thighs and booty I seriously recommend checking out American Eagle for shorts. Yes the same American Eagle you shopped at during high school! I've sworn by their shorts for years and have the same pair in literally 8 different colors. I'm a firm believer in buying in bulk when you find something that not only fits, but is a flattering length and look when it comes to shorts!
Top: Target // Shorts: American Eagle // Wedges: Dolce Vita via Macy's // Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelet: Forever 21 // Necklace: Polly's Jewelry // Sunglasses: Gift from a Wedding


What's your Summer go to look?

  1. Hey there! Absolutely love this shirt! You're lucky you only get gloomy weather in June - in London it's a bit less reliable so I'm embracing the sunshine while I can!!

  3. Hi there gorgeous. Your Plaid Shirt is perfection. I wore some Shorts with Gingham the other day. And I agree about buying something that fits well in bulk. Great giveaway too.

    Also Linda's outfit from last Tue reminds me of my outfit from last Tuesday as I wore my Neon Pink Pants with a Neon Yellow Blouse and Neon Yellow Cap-toe Flats. Great minds think alike. =)

    I am hosting a link-up myself tomorrow. I'd love for you to join and include a link back to my blog. Thanks a lot for the support. Happy Tuesday!! <3 Ada.

  9. I love the color combo on this plaid top. I know what you mean about needing a winter coat for the mall b/c of the AC. Even on the hottest days I always carry a cardigan for malls, restaurants and movie theaters.
