I’d like to think that if the ban.do girl gang wore scout uniforms, they would look something like this. I thrifted this vintage sleeveless button down two summers ago and I was so excited to re-discover it in my closet the other day! It’s got exactly the colorful vibe of another time I’ve been drawn to all summer. Wearing it makes me miss thrifting, because you just don’t find unique pieces like this in regular retail.
Though the top is a statement of its own, this outfit is kinda all about the accessories. A purse pompom, white clogs, and summer’s hottest accessory — the bandana — might be the trifecta of adorable outfit details.
I’ve been thinking lately about the self-proclaimed style description I came up with last summer: playfully classic. Every time I put together an outfit, I check that the balance is there. Yeah, this outfit definitely leans pretty far playful, but at its core you’ve got a pair of high-waisted shorts and a collared button down shirt. In no uncertain terms, that’s as classic as a summer uniform gets.
How do you ensure that your personal style shines through in the heat of summer?
