SUMMER UNIFORM DENIM SHORTS AND TOPS

Good morning from sunny Dubai, today’s attire is all about the denim shorts. During the summer months or when I am on vacation/holiday I tend to live in shorts and a shirt or a cute top of some sorts. The fact that it is so easy to put together and comfortable to wear is a no brainer. Personally love a pair of distressed high waisted denim shorts, and you can style them up for the evening or style them down like I have done here for an everyday look.

DENIM SHORTS

So lets begin with my denim shorts and these are from Nasty Gal. These shorts come in a light wash and feature a high-waisted silhouette, also has distressed hems and detailing. A great pair of affordable shorts, perfect for those who are trying out this style for the first time, or for those that don’t want to splurge on a pair of high end denim shorts just yet. I have a mix of high end and high street shorts in my collection, tend to always grab the high street ones for everyday wear. These shorts are a little oversized on me, however I don’t mind that at all.

SHIRT

Next and moving on to my shirt I opted for this blue one from H&M. I went for this as the colours of the denim shorts and the shirt are very similar and I was going for the denim on denim look. The shirt is actually a linen material and is perfect for the hot humid weather here in Dubai. Of course I could have easily worn a white Bardot top which would have equally worked well here. But I thought showing off my legs was enough skin and kept the top half of my body covered.

SNEAKERS/ TRAINERS

As I was going for a dressed down look I wore my Adidas Gazelle trainers from Net-A-Porter. I must say it is a nice change to try something slightly out of my comfort zone. As I tend to live in heels, specially espadrilles during the summer months. Sneakers are one of the best ways to look put together, be blister free and comfortable at the same time! The black and white breaks up the all blue look and ties in beautifully with the denim shorts. The perfect way to keep things classy, sporty and chic!

BAG

Moving onto to my bag and I decided to wear my Gucci Dionysus. The bag has been decorated with the signature burnished tiger head buckle, this miniature version opens to a suede-lined interior that’s ideally sized for my phone, wallet and lipstick. Carry the bag cross-body or double the polished chain to hold it in hand.

FINISHING TOUCHES

Finally for the finishing touches, first off I am wearing my black fedora hat from Whistles. A fab way to keep the sun at bay and also to add some added glamour to my look. Next I added my tan coloured belt from H&M to cinch me in at the waist. On my lips I am wearing my Chanel Coco Rouge nude lipstick in the shade Adrienne to complete my outfit.

    Really cute casual look babe. Love those denim distressed shorts so much. I would rock them with some wedge heels and an off the shoulder top. This way is definitely a cute way to style it too. For me, it just really depends on my mood for the day.
