Everyday Vacay Style


When you live in Florida, summertime calls for an everyday vacay style. No, I don't mean cargo shorts and flip flops, even though that's unfortunately the style that a lot of Floridians go for. I actually don't even own the first pair of flip flops. I used to, but in my mind I decided that they are repulsive and I realized that there are so many stylish alternatives to wearing them, such as flashy metallic slide ons that are more recently becoming a wardrobe necessity. 

I also usually think straw fedora-style hats are too touristy for me, but this summer they're a trend that's growing on me more and more. In my mind I'm planning to leave this state within the next few years, so I think I'm just embracing the Florida lifestyle until then. I've been going to the beach more than ever, and wearing outfits (such as this one) that typically aren't my style. 

For this easy look I'm wearing a light and fun pullover top from Natural Life along with a pair of white woven shorts I recently bought on sale from Forever 21. I wore some heeled sandals with this outfit, but it would also look good worn with white sneakers or those metallic slide ons I was talking about as well!

-------------------------------

Wearing: Natural Life pullover top, Forever 21 woven shorts + straw hat, Modcloth sandals, JORD wooden watch, ZeroUV sunglasses, Vintage 70s crossbody bag, Elise M Collection bracelets.

Looking for a pair of summer friendly sandals that are as comfy as they are chic? Here are some of my favorite picks for this season:

1. Lace-up sandals are perfect for achieving a comfy boho style!
2. These brown sandals add color and detail to your everyday flat sandal. 
3. Ditch the flip flops and go for a simple metallic toe sandal.
4. Style these versatile black sandals any way for any time of the day.
5. A jeweled pair of sandals can add a glam touch to any summer look!

  9. This is such a cute way to beat the summer heat! This has been one of the hottest summers I can remember in Virginia, so I'm going to have to try something like this out. It's breezy and cool, but doesn't forfeit great fashion for it.
