All The Spring Things

casual summer outfits

The calendar says it’s not quite summer yet, but the New Mexico weather argues other wise.  It has been in the seventies or even eighties every single day for the past two weeks and we have been loving it!  I wore this casual summer outfit for a day of hanging out with the hubby and little one.

There is something so wonderful about summer.  I don’t know if it’s all the fun trips (last year’s beach trip here), the warm weather, or the long days that makes it the best time of year.  I always look forward to summertime all year long and when it finally arrives I can hardly contain my excitement…..summer is here!

Trying to keep this shirt tucked in while constantly bending over to take care of my little one was driving me crazy, so I finally decided to tie it and I loved how it transformed into a crop top.

In theory white espadrilles are the perfect shoe for a casual summer outfit but in reality, they are a terrible idea.  I seriously have to clean these shoes every time I wear them and get marks on them within minutes.

Here are some better espadrille options that will look cute with any casual summer outfit :

    Summer is here indeed and what a fantastic outfit this is! I love the stripes and what a cute idea, tying your shirt at the waist! I like the sort of Americana feel of this outfit!
