You can’t dress up all summer long. After all, summer is the unofficial lounge season. So, this week, we’ve rounded up some casual summer wear you can rock at a picnic, boat, or amusement park.
1. Twiggy Round Sunglass
These sunnies come from Free People and are a really great buy at $18. They come in a plethora of colors, but I’m a fan of the light blue. Sunglasses should always be a part of your summer casual wear (or summer formal wear for that matter) because your eyes deserve protection. Also: No one ever looked good while squinting on a summer day.
2. Vintage T-Shirt
I love a good vintage t-shirt from the 1970s. And this shirt is pretty darn perfect. It’s got a slogan, it’s worn — it’s pretty much perfect. While the price is a little high ($40), it sure will look cute tucked into, or tied back above, a pair of comfy, high-waisted shorts. From the Etsy shop highwayrobbery.
3. Mimi Chica Shorts
These shorts, which come from ThredUp, look comfy, are brightly colored, and feature a flexible waistband. That means you can run along the beach, sit down in the park, or play a game of kickball without having to change. Also: If something terrible happens (like if you spill a drink on yourself), they’re only $5.49.
4. Steve Madden Wristlet
When you’re going from summer activity to summer activity, you’re going to want to make certain that your summer essentials (lipstick, sunblock, cash, and driver’s license) are safely stowed away. And you may as well store them in a cute package. Enter this wristlet. Priced at $24.99 from ThredUp.
5. Candela Sandals
I typically hate sandals, but I really dig this pair. Everything about them is cute: the color, pattern, and the fact that they are backless. Also: they are priced at $29.99. Rarely does something so cute come at such a low price. Listed on ThredUp.
