This post is sponsored by Everlane and all Everlane items I’m featuring in this post were gifted. When it comes to brands I’m proud to work with, Everlane is at the very top — they were one of the very first responsible brands I learned about quite a few years back and I’m thrilled to partner with a company that places high value on transparency and sustainable practices.

Styling notes: Ah, the classic combo of a tee and shorts. This is an everyday look for me, but I made a few strategic moves to make it feel a bit more styled — like sizing up in the tee for a slouchier look, adding a chic croc belt, and doing a bit of tonal layering. If you know me, you know I love my neutrals, but sometimes they can look a little flat. So layering similar neutral tones (like browns, taupes, cognacs, etc) is one of my favorite ways to keep an outfit out of the boring zone. It adds instant dimension and interest.
These shorts are unbelievably comfortable and flattering. The fabric is nice, thick, and not see-through as long as you’re wearing undies that match your skin tone. I love the super high waist, and I especially love that it’s not constricting, thanks to a little bit of stretch in the fabric.
Sizing Info: I’m 5’5″ tall with a 30″ bust, 26″ waist, 38″ hip. I’m wearing a M in the tee, a 0 in the shorts, and a 7 in the sandals.
Styling notes: Isn’t this the coziest look? I’ve only had this sweater for a short while, but I’ve already worn it so many times — the linen-cotton blend makes it the perfect weight for chilly indoor AC or a cool night.
Also, can we talk about these stunning sandals? They are made of the softest leather! I’m talking buttery soft. As soon as I slipped them on, I knew they were keepers. However, keep in mind, they don’t have any cushion or support, so I’d suggest getting a pair of self-adhesive sandal insoles if you have sensitive feet.
Sizing Info: I’m wearing a 0 in the shorts, a 7 in the sandals, and a L in the sweater. I sized up to a L in the sweater for a slouchier look (and because they were sold out in my usual size) so don’t be afraid to size up if they are sold out in your normal size.
Styling notes: I’ve been admiring shorts-suits for quite some time now on Pinterest, and finally tried the look for myself — I love it. I paired the blazer with a plain white tee and white shorts to make a tone-on-tone statement.
On that note, if you’re into wearing all white, wear it. If not, no need! We all have different preferences and needs, and it’s important to honor ourselves above an inspirational photo or what a blogger says.
And just so you know, I’ve already managed to get a stain on the shoulder of this blazer, but that little stain has actually made me more prone to reach for it. It’s already imperfect, so there’s no pressure. Of course, I want to keep my clothes looking nice so they’ll last, but it’s important to remember the purpose of clothes — to wear them and use them.
Sizing Info: I’m wearing a 0 in the blazer, a 0 in the shorts, M in the tee, and a 7 in the sandals.
Styling Notes: Here’s another all-white outfit with black accessories. I’m so impressed with this tee. (It’s the same tee from outfits 1 and 3.) Not only is it a great price, but it drapes beautifully and has subtle heathering. I wear a nude bra underneath because the fabric is thin, but it’s exactly the fabric weight I want to wear when it’s 95 degrees out.
Also, these sandals! I think these might be my favorite sandals of 2019. They read like a designer shoe — that squared toe and those beautiful straps! Plus they have a generously cushioned footbed, so they are comfortable for a whole day of walking.
Sizing Info: I’m wearing a 0 in the skirt, a 7 in the sandals, and a M in the tee. I usually size up in Everlane tees because I’ve found them to shrink in the dryer, plus I love an oversized look.
Styling notes: Let’s finish this post with my favorite outfit of the bunch! First of all, I love this skirt because it’s not too short. And similar to the shorts, it’s not see-through and it’s got a bit of stretch to keep it comfortable at the waist.
One thing to note: I’ve noticed that, on me, Everlane skirts tend to crease just under the zipper. This is probably because I have wider hips, but I’ve noticed it even when I size up. It’s not a deal-breaker for me, but it definitely becomes more noticeable as the day goes on, and it’s something to keep in mind.
Finally, I felt at home in this silk camisole the moment I put it on. I have a smaller bust, and I love that it doesn’t gap when I lean over. Plus I have the option to go bra-less, thanks to a double lining.
Sizing Info: I’m wearing a 0 in the cami, a 0 in the skirt, and a 7 in the sandals.
