Summer Style Combo: Peasant Top + Shorts

As I shared in yesterday's post, for me summer is so much better when simplicity rules! I get in a groove of having a few outfit combos that I'm into, and one I'm loving this summer is a peasant blouse and shorts combo. I forgot to add to my list of recent purchases yesterday, that I found this cute peasant style blouse on clearance at Target last month. I've been pairing it with dark denim, my favorite brown leather sandals (seen in this post), and my new Fossil bag. Boom! Instant summer favorite outfit. Simple, easy and comfortable, which is my trifecta when it comes to what to wear.

Now that it is already reaching the 100's here in Central California (blarg!!), if I know I am going to be out in the heat at all, I obviously skip the blouse on those days and just go for a tank or tee. But these tops are generally made of a gauzy type fabric that is still cool enough to wear on the more moderate days or evenings of summer. They are definitely perfect for air conditioned (ie, freezing!) buildings. Seriously, why does it always feel like the arctic inside the grocery store??

Here are a few picks for you to get the summer style combo for yourself!
