It’s no secret that it is H-O-T outside in the South in August. The thought of putting on pants hurts when I think of the 106 degree highs we have in Texas some days. So, I choose not to whenever possible and opt for shorts of all shapes, colors, and prints.This palm print is the picture of summer in my mind and the fact that this pair is high waisted screams to be paired with a crop top. I really think high waisted shorts and crop tops were meant for a beat the heat outfit combo during August summer days.Throw on an easy pair of heels or wedges and this outfit is great for date night or happy hour with the girls. For day time, pair with a casual sneaker and it’s easy to run errands around town. These sandals are the closest replica I could find to an Isabel Marant pair I died over last summer. A total bonus is that they were under $30 from XXI. I scoured the Internet for a good replica for far too long. When i finally found these, I ordered them immediately and have gotten more than my money worth out of them. A total bonus is that they are comfortable!
