One Ingredient

One ingredient is essential to most of my summer outfits: a great high-waisted short. Whether you’re into denim cut-offs like the pair below or something lighter, patterned or more athletic, few items are as flattering or easy to work with. Today, I styled mine with an airy blouse, but I’m partial to slouchy tees and beachy sweaters as well.

These Nadri faux pearl studs—so affordable and classic!—are a new purchase. They come in two sizes—5mm (shown here) and 8mm—making them ideal for layering if you have multiple piercings.

These Nine West sneakers have become my go-to summer shoe. They’re comfortable and convenient; perfect for slipping on in a pinch. It’s nice not having to buckle into a sandal or lace something up before heading out the door. And even though their flats, the pointed toe elongates the legs. Be sure to order one half size up!

Zara blouse (similar style on sale!; fun off-the-shoulder style here), BDG high-waisted cut-offs (similar style on sale!; more similar styles here and here), Nadri faux pearl studs, A.J. Morgan sunnies (similar style here and here), BDG clutch and Nine West ‘Domnick’ sneakers (on sale!).

One thought on “One Ingredient

  1. I’ve been searching for the perfect sneaker I can pull off with dresses and dress pants when I’m working in the hospital… and these might be it! Thanks for keeping me stylish for over 20 years Lan <3
