Every day is in the 90s now but humidity makes it feel well over 100! My favorite thing to wear when it gets hot is a lightweight tank and a showstopper pair of denim shorts.  The other day I played  with this combo and came up with a way of making it look put together without too much time or effort! A tank and denim shorts are fairly basic pieces so I focused on color and detail.

Yellow is trending but I love it every Summer for the way it shows off a tan. I added this $29 yellow top to my cart because I fell in love with the little tie but now I have it the comfort factor is what has me wearing it on repeat. Another thing you guys know has been on repeat is these denim shorts. They are more of an investment but I’ve worn them 3-4 days a week since I got them (they’re THAT good!) Next to these my second favorite are these for under $50.

I paired the top/shorts with pink heels for a color contrast I felt still totally worked (IDK what it is about pink and yellow but they go SO well together) then added this beachy straw tote to tie top and bottom.

I personally love heels with shorts for the way they lengthen your legs but you could definitely recreate this look with a pair of pink slides too. Here are a few favorites:

Here’s another one I styled but with one color instead of two:

Next time you’re reaching for those basic Summer staples, think about color repetition especially in your shoes or accessories…you’ll be surprised with where your imagination takes you. <3
