Lazy Days of (Almost) Summer

IMG_9181

Technically summer has not officially begun. The official start to summer is June 21st; however to me summer began the minute I handed in my last final exam. So far my summer has kicked off to a busy start. I’m currently balancing three jobs, an internship in the city, a sales associate at a retail store, and hopefully one of your favorite bloggers. With all the running around and trying to keep up with my schedule, I have barely had time to breathe which is why most of my recent blog posts have been written on the train. I like to call this multi-tasking at its finest. It’s very rare for me to have a day off, but when I do, I try to make the best of it. On those rare days to myself, I like to catch up on my sleep, catch up on all my favorite blogs, and head outside to explore and capture pictures for upcoming posts. That is my idea of relaxation. I’m not complaining about my busy schedule. I like to keep busy. Especially being in the city three times a week. The city has become my second home and hope I can call it my official home in the next few years.

In my opinion, all summer clothes are super comfy. Nothing is better than throwing on a dress or a skirt and not having to worry about tights, a heavy winter coat, and boots. Today I decided to dress super casual because I finally had a day off, so jean shorts, a crop tee, and sneakers it is.

I love my high-waisted distressed denim jean shorts from American Eagle. I bought them last summer and they are still my go to pair. The light wash pairs well with any shirt.

On one of my recent Forever 21 shopping trips I saw this interesting crop tee. I have to admit I am not a big fan of crop tees because I think sometimes they can be a little too revealing. I like this tee because it’s not super cropped and when paired with high-waisted shorts it just shows the right amount of skin. Not only do I like the green tie dye pattern but look how neat the back of the shirt looks. It’s a destroyed back that shows some skin so of course I just wore a bandeau underneath. This top is perfect for a hot summer day because it’s so lite and comfy.

Like I said, one of my favorite things to do on my days off is to explore and you can’t explore without comfortable shoes, so that’s why I chose to wear my white converse. I love my Shoreline Slip On Edition Converse because you just slip them on and don’t worry about tying them. Plus they make any outfit sportier and more casual.

IMG_9143                You can’t forget about sunglasses. I recently rediscovered my sunglasses drawer and I can’t believe how many pairs I have and all different styles, shapes, and colors. I love buying inexpensive pairs at Forever 21 and H&M so you always have a style on hand based on any mood. Today I was feeling groovy in my aviator sunglasses from H&M for a laid back vibe.
