Sassy Summer Style Inspo

Linnea White

Wearing a pair of vibrant shorts doesn't have to feel obnoxious. It can feel incredibly sassy, sexy, and classic. And this ensemble is the perfect sassy Summer style inspo.

This Catherine Malandrino top came into the shop the other week, and I just had to style it. It's effortlessly feminine silhouette was instantly appealing, and probably why it sold the same day we did the photo shoot! The plunging neckline and fitted bodice is just dang sexy, yet so classy. To dress down the ultra feminine shape, I paired it with a pair of vibrant J. Crew tailored shorts and some on-trend slides by Old Navy. I added a statement bag, like this vintage straw embroidered crossbody bag, and a pair of statement earrings to complete the look.

Darling Style Tip

Stay away from chunky necklaces that fall on your chest or long necklaces with a plunging neckline like this. Keep the visuals up by your collarbones or jawline and ever-so-dainty. These locally-made tassel earrings were the perfect touch of va-va-voom for this sassy Summer look!
