My Current Summer Uniform

My Current Summer Uniform

What I've been wearing on repeat.

I go through fazes of wearing certain styles and outfit combos non-stop like I'm sure many of you do too. It's like a safety blanket when you need a pick-me-up, and when you're running late, it's got your back. I've always been about comfort, so I'm normally drawn to comfy pieces that show off my best features. When I find items of clothing and styles that I like, I end up buying them in bulk! 


This summer has been as erratic as ever, meaning I could be out wearing a pretty summer dress and sandals, only for it to rain as soon as I step out the door. When there have been days when the weather report is saying rain and sun, I've been sticking to a set outfit that you could say has become my summer uniform. 

Fitted t-shirts have always been a love of mine, and to tell you the truth I just can't stop buying them! They're such an easy basic that goes with everything tucked or untucked, cropped or long line. I found this one in Urban Outfitters and it won me over with the burgundy cuffs and little 'Peaches' embroidery. It's a really light material meaning that you can wear it comfortably in the warm, and layer without bulking in the cold. 

When I got into Tumblr (if you don't follow me, you can find my account here), my dashboard was filled with Levi's 501 denim cutoffs and I would scour the rails of vintage shops trying to find ones in my size that didn't have button flies (I'm not about that life). I own quite a few pairs- I'm even wearing some as I write this! They're really flattering on people who have teeny tiny waists, so if you struggle to find shorts that fit tightly around the waist then these are for you! Levi's shorts were rocking the frayed hems before they got popular, and you can always find them in places like Beyond Retro. 

I definitely go through fazes of being obsessed with a certain pair of shoes and wearing them all the time. When I was sent this pair of shoes from Gerry Weber, I was thrilled with how comfy they were without compromising on style, and they are now up with my go-to shoes along with my Stan Smiths! The soft leather and brogue style keeps them looking smart while the flatform gives you a little lift. 

I always used to steer towards loud chunky jewelry (anyone remember the super long necklaces that came down to your belly button?) but as I've got older I've found myself reaching for more dainty pieces. In fact, the smaller the better! This little gem from Jewellery Box is all kinds of cute with the little bee and leaf charm. Small quirky animal charms are definitely my sort of thing.

So that's my current summer uniform! Let's just say I won't be surprised if I've worn these to death by the time autumn rolls around. Let me know what you can't stop wearing, and if you have any posts on them I'd love to see!
