If I had to create the perfect summer uniform, it would consist of a white tee (or bodysuit), jean shorts and a neutral color shoe. This outfit is classic and works for any occasion. Keep it simple with a flat or low-heeled shoe, or dress it up with a stiletto or block heeled sandal.
This outfit can easily go from day to night (or from outside warm temps to inside air conditioning), by simply adding a blazer or cardigan. I wore this outfit today and grabbed a blazer for when I ran into the air conditioned stores.
The shorts I am wearing here are my newest pair and I love that they are a little bit longer in the back. I like a cut-off look but don't want anything extra exposed! They run a little large, so I recommend sizing down.
