Stripy Tee & Denim Cut-Offs

"Even when the sky is filled with clouds
the sun still shines above........"

I find it ironic as I'm sat here writing about a t-sirt and shorts outfit, it's currently lashing rain. Mmm... not feelin' this rainy weather at all but let's rewind to our glorious heatwave a few weeks ago where I got my pins out in this stripy tee and denim shorts combination.

I picked up this basic stripy t-shirt in Zara last summer as I fell in love with the amazing quality. If you read this casual outfit post then you'll know I've become obsessed with Zara's basic range. I used to never buy my basic tops in Zara as I always thought they were quite pricey so I usually buy most of my basics in Penneys or H&M. But I've been converted and I now like the idea of investing in my basics a little bit more. Stripes will never go out of fashion so it's definitely worth paying a little bit more. I've had this top for over a year and it's been thrown in the wash more times than I can count and it still looks brand new. I usually wait for their sale and then I stock up these types of tops - that way you'll still get the good quality but for a fraction of the price!

Another wardrobe basic for the summer time is denim shorts. These ones are from Vero Moda and again I paid a little more than I'd usually pay for a pair of shorts. But just like stripes, denim shorts will never go out of style and they can be worn for many Summers to come. And just look at how beautiful that lace detailing is! I decided to embrace the stripy theme and pair the outfit with a pair of striped runners from Stadivarius. It was my first time to visit their shop but I fell in love with their stock and I wanted to buy the whole shop! Well, that would have been a haul, wouldn't it? *wink wink*


What are your 'summer wardrobe staples'?

Love,
Cliona xx
