It's All in the Accessories

The temperatures are on the rise and that means it's shorts season! For all of those who live in the northeast, we all deserve a MAJOR celebration for this warm weather we've been having after the long, miserable winter we had! Am I right?

When summer hits I definitely like to keep a few of a favorite pairs of shorts in a good rotation. White shorts are one of my favorite types of shorts because you can really mix them up a lot. But, keep in mind, they do get dirty much quicker than other shorts so you want to buy a pair that can live through a lot of washes! 
Can we all agree that Hilary Duff has been killing it lately? I follow her on Instagram and am constantly inspired by her boho chic style. I saw this hat and immediately thought of her so I just had to pick it up as soon as I spotted it!

Admittedly, I do look a little bit like a girl version of Indiana Jones here, but I'm embracing it, hopefully you can too! I wanted to keep this look pretty neutral, but to avoid it from being too plain, I added some accessories to finish it off. I added this amazing Rag & Bone hat and a pop of color, this coral Kate Spade bag was just the piece I needed to give my look an extra something. 

DIY Trick: I bought these flats for an incredible price at Kohl's last summer, but I didn't love that they had a bow on top. I very carefully cut the bow off and now these are my go-to summer flats! If you see an item for you like at a great price, think about how you can make it an item you LOVE with just a little bit of time!
