I get pretty lazy with my outfits during the summer. Mostly because I’m usually looking like a wet dog with no eyebrows.
So when it’s time to go in public and I walk into my closet for the first time in 3 weeks it’s like, SHIT I don’t know what to do with this stuff.
My summer comfort zone is a white top and cut off jean shorts.
Also, if you’re wondering where I’ve been since the brunch, I’ve been washing towels and sheets. I’m dead ass serious. Straight laundry from nine to five all day errrryday. I’m almost done…might just burn the rest.
Once I select my white top and shorts I just start grabbing any and everything that looks like a rainbow or something from a fruit basket.
BUT FIRST, I gotta tell you about these shorts.
I had been reading online that American Eagle was taking their denim game a little more serious, so for the first time since high school I popped in my local store.
EVERY summer I search and search for a pair of denim shorts that doesn’t hold my crotch for ransom. Ladies holler if you hear me on this one! Like it’s so tight in the crotch you can’t even cross your legs. WHO DESIGNED THIS?! WHY IS IT THAT HARD?!
OR if it’s comfortable in the crotch and waist then the length is insanely short and I cannot bend over, sneeze, breathe or go in public.
Guess I’m just going back to bed then.
I tried on the “Mom Shorts” at American Eagle and I think a dove flew out of my crotch.
The war was over and peace had been found.
These are the ONLY shorts I have worn all summer and anyone who dares asks me about them gets a powerpoint presentation on why they’re so awesome.
I purchased the “Light Destroy Wash” in a size zero, which felt like witchcraft because I know I’m not that small but whatever, my crotch thanks you.
This top is from Forever21 and I’m wearing the size small.
The quality of the fabric is nicer than you would expect from Forever21, which is why the price point is a little higher for them than usual. It has a hidden side zipper closure so you’re not wasting moments of your life messing with those buttons. The shoulders have just a slight puff, but not too much to make us look like a reject linebacker.

Now that we’ve established the main ingredients let’s discuss the rainbows and fruit loops.
I naturally gravitate towards colorful pieces, so when the basic foundation of my outfit is vanilla I start adding all the sprinkles.
The earrings I am wearing are $5 and I’m about to rock your world and link a ton of awesome colorful statement earrings that are all under $5.
Feel free to wear them all at once.
These statement bird earrings are surprisingly not heavy!
I’ve linked them below for $4!
Maybe even grab a piece of yarn and string up some fruit loops to complete the LEWK.
Since the main pop of color was red with my earrings and strawberry bag I incorporated a rainbow heel to bring the colors full circle.
I am wearing a Jessica Simpson rainbow sandal that I can’t find online anywhere but I have provided a few links to other rainbow themed shoe options.
I’m so into rainbows I had God install one for J Beck’s birthday.
Even the Lord is doing it guys!
I can’t remember where this strawberry clutch purse is from but it really let’s the people know I’m committed to being a fruit loop.
I found a similar and better one from J Crew linked below!
So if you’re hot, tired and just not sure how to style yourself this summer grab a few accessories that look like a bag of skittles and taste the rainbow with me.
No one has to know you really didn’t try that hard when you got dressed. Just remember to push your shoulders back and silently demand the attention of the room, because being you ROX.
Until next time!
