Memorial Day has come and gone and so have the legs of all my pants. I am officially in denim shorts mode until further notice, woohoo! Denim shorts are definitely a Summer staple in my wardrobe no matter the event. I love light washed denim with some cool distressed rips and tears but I also love a good dark wash denim. I tend to style dark washed denim shorts for nighttime, more “dressed up” summer events. I’m not sure why I do this actually, it’s just the look I gravitate toward when I am styling my looks for a fun summer night out. In this particular post I wanted to share with you guys my new favorite outfit that I styled from head-to-toe from Nordstrom, and yes they are based around a cool, light washed denim pair of shorts, and leopard, duh. You guys are going to go crazy for my adorable and light weight leopard duster cardigan, it has the perfect fit and feel and gives my look that extra, je ne sais quo, ya feel me?
Let’s talk shorts first – because I am having a serious obsession with these new BlankNYC, shredded hem, non-stretch, acid-wash cutoffs. The wash is a cool vintage vibe that is perfect for summer time. BlankNYC has always been a favorite denim brand of mine. They offer a great price point on all of their items, these shorts are $88, BUT are currently on sale for 25% off and are now $66! BlankNYC denim fit’s similar to designer denim’s at a fraction of the price. I hate thinking that I am getting a deal on denim shorts and paying an obscenely low price for them only to discover the quality is just not what I want it to be – however, that is NEVER the case when buying BlankNYC. Nordstrom has an awesome selection of some of Blank’s best denim products, I highly recommend checking their page out, here, for all of your denim needs.
Next, moving on to my gorgeous Socialite Ivory Lace Trim Camisole Top. Yup, you guessed it, I scored this beautiful cami from Nordstrom, too and it’s only $35! If ivory is too boring and simple for your liking, no worries, this cami is available in 10 different colorways – giving you endless options and ways to style a great staple cami. Camisoles and cardigans go hand-in-hand and I feel that you can never have enough camisole varieties. I wanted to go for a completely muted look underneath this leopard cardigan to really let it shine through and steal the spotlight of my look. Regardless, this cami is a must have for summer, it looks so pretty by itself paired with the same cutoff shorts and some fabulous espadrille wedges. My favorite wedges are definitely these Marc Fisher Adalyn Espadrille Wedge Sandal in my years of espadrille/wedge wearing experiences, these are hands down the most comfortable. You will definitely be seeing an overload of me wearing these babies, but that’s because they’re literally go with every outfit I pair them with and they’re the most comfortable wedges I have ever found. I’ve had these for a few years now and boy do they last!
Lastly, let’s talk leopard! My all-time favorite print always add’s that extra edge to my outfit that just completely transform my look from casual/borderline boring to exciting and eclectic. I found this stunning Halogen Leopard Long Linen Blend Cardigan on Nordstrom as well and I was instantly in love. I know it’s summer and the weather is finally looking up and getting warmer, but how could I not have purchased this cardigan? The best part about it, is that the feel and fabric is is super lightweight and comfortable so it’s perfect to throw on, just like I did, over some cute cutoffs and a simple cami. Plus, this cardigan is a fabulous transition piece from Spring to Summer from Summer to Fall – I can’t wait to style this for the Fall with some awesome boots and booties! This is a must have in my opinion – and it’s only $68!
