IT'S STILL HOT: Transitional Basics

September 4, 2015

Pumpkin spiced lattes might be back, but it's still been in the 90s and humid af here! Pretty sure next week will be the same. I have so many fall pieces to style, but I.just.can't. so here's a simple, yet chic outfit incorporating two summer basics that can be transitioned into fall: a white tee & denim shorts. 

I gave the look an edge by adding black shoes, hat, and choker to these foundation pieces. I feel like these black elements totally pull it together. BTW, I found these sandals for $5 at Rue 21! They make me look soo tall, haha. Rue 21 has some really cute platforms and slip on's super cheap here.

When the temperatures start to drop you can add tights or knee-highs and a leather jacket or flannel to the look and voila! You're set for fall. White t-shirts are a good idea any time of the year, tbh... Do you have any summer to fall basics in your closet? How do you plan to style them?

T-Shirt: Kohls /// Shorts: thrifted /// Sandals: Rue 21 /// Hat: Forever 21


  1. Looking great! I think simple basics look always good! :) x

  2. Love this outfit, you can't beat a simple white T and denim shorts to look effortlessly cool!

    Made In The 1990's.

  3. I've got similar pairs of shoes but it's too cold in the UK to wear them right now even though it's just barely turned September -.- For me, skater/circle skirts is a great basic; you can wear it with a T-shirt and pair it with some vans or for a fall look, grab a coat, put on a hat and put on some tights and bam new outfit created :D
