white lace & jean shorts

shorts: Paige // shirt: Marshalls // shoes: Forever21 // purse & watch: MK // sun glasses: TOMS // lipstick: NYX Indie Flick

These summer nights sure are heating up! It sometimes can be hard to balance the casual and comfortable look while still appearing classy in this heat. I am a huge fan of shorts and tank tops for summer, as shown above. But what do you pair with the shorts and tanks to add a little somethin extra?You never seem to go wrong with a pop of lipstick! I tend to keep the heavy eye make up to a minimum in this heat and sport a bold lip instead. Why? Well obvious reason no one wants black eyeliner melting down their face, and second brights on your lip is just more fun. The second accessory I add to my casual shorts & tanks is what I wear on my feet! When possible I try and wear a comfy oxford or toms, something that encloses my feet. Reason one, it allows some moisture to my heels so they don't crack, reason two everyone wears flip flops in the summer so it never hurts to be different. Tell me. what do you wear to dress up your shorts & tank looks?

That is just the perfect peplum top! I've yet to buy a pair of toms, but I do really love the lace kind. Love the whole look :)

I've been wanting a white peplum top, but I can't seem to find one anywhere. This version is adorable on you, and the pop of color with the lip is the perfect accent!
