Summer uniforms, summer go-to’s, summer whatever you usually find yourself wearing. If you were to go through friend’s Instagrams and Facebook albums (just kidding, nobody uploads photos from their SUMMER 2013 ROADTRIP anymore), you’ll probably finding me wearing one of these or a blend of the three.
1) Birkenstocks are pretty standard, I mean, I went to liberal arts school and played on the frisbee team. What else were you supposed to wear to your Queer Theory class? Lest we forget the days when you could smoke a pack of cloves on the porch of your dilapidated college housing. The tie-dye shirt was a nice surprise from a friend and is now my inaugural “It’s time to drink on the roof” shirt. Occupy tie dye rainbow short sleeve by Band of Outsiders; plain grey jane shorts from J.Crew; liberal arts “Arizona” two-strap Birkenstocks.
2) I’m always on board for the stripes and white denim, so this shouldn’t be a surprise. I guess this is where I’m supposed to say, “When it gets chilly on a summer evening, you’ll need a long-sleeve shirt.” But let’s not and say we did, since that’s just an excuse for those people who think long sleeves don’t make sense in the summer. I don’t need much floral, so let’s keep it minimal and stick it on my feet. Comme des Garcons striped long sleeve tee; white Acne denim (similar); Kimono slippers by Soludos.
3) If all of my striped tees are dirty (which can happen), I’ve got the striped shorts situation covered. Casually covered. And of course I’ll cop those GATs. Find ‘em here on the internet, friends. They are relaxing and minimal, like your favorite VSCO photos of scenic landscapes you’ve snapped on your summer treks. A perfect grey tee that you never have to wash because it doesn’t stretch out by rag & bone; striped casual shorts for brunch and boozing by Etudes; the original Margiela sneakers but you can find ‘em eBay or in Soho like I did.
Tada please stop me if I’m not wearing one of these outfits so I know you care, cool?
