Notice something odd about this outfit? If you're saying the pink top - correct! If you have followed my blog for any amount of time you will have noticed I don't wear light colors often. But I bought tee from Everlane a couple years ago because you never know when you'll need a light pink tee. It went perfectly with the flowers on these cherry blossom printed pants but I still feel odd in it. Give me dark colors any day!

I've been slacking on blog pictures lately thanks to either killer heat or rainy days. This Summer has definitely been difficult for blogging.  Luckily we had a stretch of good weather so I was able to get a few outfits shot for this week and next.

I've been meaning to wear this sweater for a while but the weather never seemed to cooperate. I was originally going to wear it with pants but decided to go for shorts instead since it's still pretty warm. I don't think these shorts have appeared much on the blog this Summer but they still remain one of my most worn pieces on super hot days. (Excuse the wrinkles in the shorts, I had been sitting a lot, haha!)

I hope all my readers in the US had a nice long weekend! I spent my Monday (and today) watching Layla for my cousins. You all may remember I used to live with her (and my cousins) up until they decided to move to a different town last September. I've missed her quite a bit so it was fun to have a little sleepover with her in our house!

We've had a couple cooler days this past week but this was worn on another scorcher. I realized I haven't worn this romper on the blog all Summer! Poor thing not getting blog love this year. I think I've worn it a couple other times but wasn't in the mood for photos on those days.

Romper: DKNY Batik Print Romper (Clinton Crossing), Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Clio', Sunglasses: Chanel, Necklace: BubuRuby (etsy)

Keeping things extra short and sweet today since I had a crazy work day yesterday! I've been meaning to wear this outfit for a few weeks but it has been so hot lately I had to keep putting it off. Finally we had a cooler day so I could wear these pants. I'm not 100% happy with my shoe choice but I haven't worn these much since getting them for my birthday last year and decided to give them some love.

Living in New England we have quite the range of Summer temperatures so it's not out of the ordinary to wear jeans in Summer.  It's not as hard as you think to wear high waisted jeans in summer so today I'm sharing two ways it can be done! Good American, an inclusive sizing clothing store, has a ton of different high waisted jean options. They have everything from clean to distressed all the way to waxed and embellished options.

Wear a bodysuit - The foundation of this look is a bodysuit. You can get them printed, solid, tank, short sleeve, anything your heart desires! What's great about wearing a bodysuit with high waisted jeans is you get to show off how high the jeans go rather than covering them up with a top. That's not a bad thing, but if you want to really highlight the jeans, this is the simplest way!

Thin layers are also really helpful in Summer. Here I wore my high waisted jeans with a super thin silk button up blouse that I tied at the waist so it would accentuate the jeans.  Since this particular blouse was long-sleeved I rolled them up to keep cool in the warmer weather. I was even able to get away with this top in the heat of Florida.

Crop tops and lightweight sweater tanks are another great way to show off high-waisted jeans. You can see how I've worn a crop top with high waisted jeans in this post from my vacation in Greece and in a light weight sweater here.

Normally people associate high waisted jeans with sweaters and Winter. But you really can wear them all year round if you style them right. I find that in Summer I want to wear lighter wash jeans or really thin fabric jeans. These Everlane jeans I'm wearing are on the thicker side but the light wash keeps them Summery. You also don't have to show off how high the waist actually goes. You could wear a silky dress over the jeans or a really lightweight cardigan. The sky is the limit! Just remember - keep it simple, keep it light and have fun!

How would you wear high waisted jeans in Summer?!
