Back to the Basics: Olive Tee and Cutoffs

Tee (similar) (similar) | Denim Shorts | Sandals (similar) | Bag 

Sometimes a simple tee and denim cutoffs is all that's needed for a cute and casual summer look. I love the simplicity of all these items and love the way they look all together.

This olive tee from American Eagle is no longer in stock but I've linked some really similar ones from the same "Soft & Sexy" line. This olive color is one of my favorites to wear. My distressed denim shorts are festival style and really comfortable. I always have trouble finding shorts that fit me just right but have been loving the fit of these.

Let me just tell ya how much I love this tote bag. SO MUCH. I've gotten so much use out of this bag. It's the perfect size for when you want to carry a little more. My laptop fits in it so perfectly! And the best part about this bag is that it's reversible. (!!!!) It come in so many colors but I went with the black/tan. It's definitely the most versatile bag I own!

What's your favorite go-to casual look for summer? Do you gravitate towards tees and denim like myself? Let me know in a comment below! Thanks for reading!
