Dress + shirt around the waist + sandals (or flats).
It’s the formula I’ve been sticking to on most of the hot days this summer and let me tell you, it works every time. Now that I’ve identified this pattern, I realize I’ve been wearing some version of the same outfit over and over and over again for the past year…
Madewell shirtdress + J.Crew Chambray + Target ankle strap sandals (and a hat!)
Madewell shirtdress + J.Crew Chambray + perforated flats
One thing I really love about this formula is that a lot of different dress styles work with it. As you can see, sometimes I wear a swing dress (usually on the hottest days because they’re breezy!), sometimes I wear a shirtdress (my favorite are from Madewell, of course!) and other times I sport my Sonnet James play dresses. I usually rely on my trusty chambray as my shirt of choice, but I’ve also dabbled in using my black gingham shirt and it often does the trick. And of course, accessories are always bonus points—add a hat, a necklace, and/or a bag to round it all out.
Have you tried this look? Do you have a no-fail mom outfit for summer?
