Wearing some of my favorite casual summer staples on this hot, steamy day – jean shorts and an easy striped tee, topped off with a fun straw hat and the perfect tote. As we prepare to head into August (did I just type that?!) and the heart of the season, it’s all about keeping cool and attempting to look good doing it. I’ve got you covered in that department. Below you’ll find a hit list of heat-busters that will keep you looking chic and feeling comfortable during the sticky days ahead.
The back of that top is so fun, Mary!! That’s the way to make summer clothes interesting!!
It’s fun, isn’t it?! All about those details :)
Love the striped tank!!!
Thanks, Jaymie! That tie-back sold me :)
I can’t believe were going into August! Your shorts picks are great, I like that each of them have a nice length!
Pumps and Push-Ups
Same, Brooke. The extra length and the boyfriend fit make them wearable for me:) Nothing worse than too short and/or too tight.
fun post! loving your hat!
You make summer look effortless! I am over here sweating like crazy. ;) Love your shorts and top. I agree and hat and straw bag are the accessories to have.
Straight A Style
Ha! I think you guys are a bit warmer than we are here. I know it sounds crazy but I love hot weather, emphasis on hot. It beats being cold any day :)
That is the cutest denim shorts outfit and I love that tank. I still have to find the perfect denim shorts. Love yours so much Mary. =)
Thanks, Ada! I’ve had those shorts for several seasons now and they remain my favorites!
Love the entire ensemble, Mary! That top is too adorable!

Thanks, Jill! Definitely works on a hot summer day :)
I have the striped T-shirt but I don’t have denim shorts. Now you got me thinking! However it’s like winter here in London at the moment! Stunning as always Mary xx
Thanks, Laurie! Winter does not sound fun to me right now :) Hope it warms up soon! xx-M
