I love a good outfit combo because….Brain.  Over it.  Anything that I can break down into a simple THIS + THAT is a win.  I’ll save the really tough decisions (EX: ice cream before or after dinner) for the small amount of brain that hasn’t deserted me for a beach somewhere.

This outfit combo in particular is a good one because it’s super easy, yet feels just a little bit…special.  It’s basically shorts and a tshirt, but the embroidery takes it up a notch.  And YES:  the embroidered top does look amazing with denim underwear, but is cute enough to pair with longer, boyfriend shorts as well.

And a bike.

Outfit Details

top: Madewell Embroidered Peasant Top (also at Nordstrom, here) – this top is a little sheer, and a little shorter than others….which is why it fit my 5’2″ frame perfectly.  Size xs.

shorts: rag & bone/JEAN Boyfriend Short (size 24) – another great option are my sister’s favs, American Eagle’s Tomgirl shorts.  You can see her wearing them here.

flip-flops: Reef ‘Slim Ginger’ Studded Flip Flop in tan

sunglasses: Prada Timeless Square Sunglasses (similar)
