OOTD: Summer Uniform

August 13, 2013






Printed Sports Bra: Thrifted | Tank Top: Old Navy | Shorts: F21 | Sandals: H&M

I mentioned before that the only thing I’ve been wanting to wear this summer is a big, billowy tops and shorts, but neglected to share any outfits that really reflected it, so here you go. Haha, pretty boring, right? The shorts are lavender and have a sort of distressed denim look. I picked them up on the Forever21 sales rack for like $5 back in like, January. They’re the stretchiest fabric ever and I kind of never want to take them off.

This sports bra has the most fun print ever and it’s great to wear under really baggy tank tops. Keeps my girls from making an unfortunate cameo and adds some fun to a pretty plain ensemble. I don’t even care that it’s from a thrift store and kind of falls into the “ew” category of used clothes items. DON’T EVEN CARE!

Life has been a little crazy lately because Andrew and I are house-hunting! Well, technically he is. I’ll just be living there and helping with the mortgage, but it’s not like he’s getting rid of me any time soon. ;) We want to live with our friend Chris when he graduates in December and Andrew has a good chunk of change in savings so we looked at how much we already spend in rent and decided buying a house might not be a bad idea! I’ve had a lot of fun shopping for cute homes and I actually think we’ve found one we really like. Now comes the scary part. Home loan shopping. Ugh. We’re trying to figure out if this can really happen for us ASAP. Wish us luck! We need it haha.

I’ll share more exciting home details when I can! It might not even happen and we could be hanging around our loft for another year, but we’ll see. Eeep.

  • I think I have that same tank from Old Navy in grey. I’ve been wearing it all summer long over leggings and camisoles.

    Househunting!! So exciting! I can’t wait to hear more about that.

  • I love your outfit! I prefer a cute pair of pants, or shorts with a fun shirt any day over a dress and shirt + skirt combo. (Just my personal style!) I also LOVE lavender. ;)

    Good luck with your home and loan hunting! Jen and I are applying for section 8, so hopefully SOON we’ll be home hunting too!!! <3

  • I love this outfit! It looks so comfy.

    Get ready to be hair twins!

  • Cute outfit! I love your hair too – it’s so pretty and like a mermaid’s hair would be ^__^

    • Michelle

      The highest of compliments! Thank you, Lisa! You’re a doll. <3

  • Sometimes I like the “boring” outfits the best. These are a reflection of both style and comfort and seem very wearable for real life.

  • Eek, LOVE the colors here, especially in the ring! And the shoes are so perfect for summer, how did I miss them?! xD
