I’m not one to follow trends, but I still indulge from time to time. For instance, here’s a post on exaggerated sleeves from a couple of weeks earlier.
If I were to name some of my favorite summer staples, I’d definitely start with a pair of denim shorts. I just can’t get enough of them, because let’s be honest, you can never have too many… Pair it with another favorite summer trend, lace up heels and you’re good to go.
Since you guys have been encouraging me to challenge myself and style more, I’ve been experimenting with more prints, and while I love and collect all kinds of white shirts, switching it up with this silk star print was so fun! I can’t be the first one saying that silk shirts are perfect for summer as they’re light and airy. And wearing a shirt that is not white for the first time in forever felt…refreshing.
Are there any summer trends you can’t get enough of lately? Share it below! xx

Melis, you look effortlessly chic. My type of outfit any day of the week 😀
love your style and photos! your vintage chanel tho!! and your shoes! <3
Great chic look
I feel you on the trends. If anything, I could give the neck scarf, cold-shoudler, and culottes a try. Lace-up shoes did not work for me. Too much work lmao. I prefer to slip a shoe on. DONE.
I love your style!! perfect look

I LOVE a basic blouse and jean shorts and it doesn’t get any better than this. I love that the blouse has little stars on it and you can’t go wrong with classic Levi’s. Obsessed with those shoes and all these beautiful photos! xoxo, Christine

I think it’s great to mix things up with your clothes occasionally just to keep things fresh, but denim shorts will always be a summer staple for me as well!
