H&M Striped Sweater (similar here) / Ralph Lauren Fitted Boyfriend Shirt (similar on sale from GAP here) / Denim Shorts (old, similar here) / Brown Faux Leather Crossbody Bag / Franco Sarto Oxford Loafers (similar style and print here) / Vintage Black Sunglasses (similar here)

A good sweater and shorts combo has been a staple of mine for years, especially during transition seasons. And while I know it’s still July and summer is still in full-speed, I know that our Minnesota climate is one to swing to opposite extremes in a matter of hours; so I’ve learned to always be prepared. Removable layers have become a feature in my outfits that I can’t seem to eliminate for that reason, it’s been drilled into my head for too long! Especially when this Ralph Lauren shirt that I can’t seem to go a week without wearing holds up this well! Not a tear or stain in sight; now that’s my kind of shirt.

BABY HUES

Can I just say how much I love this skirt? It’s insanely soft and comfortable; the perfect weekend piece by far! Although, don’t forget to wear spandex underneath, I made the mistake of walking out the door without them once and had quite a few “Marilyn Monroe” moments that day!
Ralph Lauren Tailored Boyfriend Shirt (similar GAP one here) / Brandy Melville Skirt (similar here for 40% off w/ email sign up) / Nike Hat (old, similar on sale here) / (what once were…) White Converse (will have a cleaning tutorial for them up soon!) / Vintage Sunglasses (similar here) / Long Necklace / Anthropologie x BaubleBar plate necklace (similar here)  / Striped Tote Bag (old, similar here and multicolor under $20 one here)
I am a sucker for a cute, relaxed look, and this outfit just proves that. Mix simple pieces and baby neutral hues and you have what I call the “Shelby look”. Simply put, I like to keep my style functional and versatile, that way I can go to a majority of places and events without needing to own 1,000 different pieces. And if there’s any way to prove that’s been done just take a look above at my converse – those puppies have seen whiter days! This outfit may have been worn out to the farmer’s market, but there’s nothing stopping me from re-wearing it and reworking it for different events this summer. After all, you can never go wrong with a good constructed shirt and skirt pairing.
