Happy Friday, y’all; we made it (praise hands)! I know it’s been a while but I’m back with a few fashion finds that I’ve picked up recently. With summer weather in full force here in the south, it was time to add a few basic tees and try out a bike short trend that I have been seriously avoiding. Honestly, nothing against bike shorts or the people who wear them, I just didn’t think I was cool enough to pull them off – lol…but here we are! I hope you all had a great week and are excited for the weekend ahead. Like all of my other posts, I will list, link and include sizing details below!
**I also wanted to mention that I recently joined the liketoknow.it team (yaaasssssss) and would love it if you’d follow me over there! All of the outfits I’m sharing today plus some app-exclusive content are already linked for your convenience!**

SHIRT / I absolutely love these cropped shirts from Target. They’re comfortable, trendy and go with just about anything. I love having a plethora of basic tees that I can pair with shorts, jeans & leggings…just me?! While these do feature a slightly cropped style, they come about an inch below the belly button so when paired with anything high-waisted, you’ll definitely be covered! They fit tts, though I sized up to a L for a more slouchy fit.
SHORTS / These are the high-waisted mom shorts from Abercrombie and I absolutely love them. They fit tts, though if you’re looking for a roomier fit (like they’re boyfriend style), I would size up 1. Unfortunately they are sold out in all sizes right now so I have linked a pair from American Eagle that fit similarly (I love them too).
SANDALS / The sandals I have on are from several years ago but I linked a pair that I just got in the mail from Lulus. They have a similar leopard print style, fit tts and have way more support than the ones I’m wearing here. 10/10 would recommend.
SHIRT / This another gem from Target (they are killing it lately). In comparison to the lavender shirt linked above, this is more of a true cotton material and is lighter in weight. They both have a boxy-ish cut but this one has a little extra length which makes it more flattering over all. It comes in several colors and fits TTS.
JEANS / Ugh. You guys. These are my favorite Old Navy jeans EVER; unfortunately, they no longer make this style (que the tears) so I linked a similar pair from American Eagle. They fit TTS (IMO) and are super flattering on the body; they are a slightly darker wash than the ones I’m wearing but I still really love them. If you’re looking for another style from Old Navy to try, their OG Straight Line is what I would recommend; though I have found that I need to size down in that particular style.
SLIPPERS / You can usually catch me wearing my Amazon slippers 99% of the time; however, I haven’t repurchased those in quite a while and saw these in Target and knew I had to have them! They are super soft and fluffy and are perfect for wearing around the house! BONUS: They’re a few dollars cheaper than the Amazon ones!
T-SHIRT DRESS / I have been seeing the bike short / oversized t-shirt trend everywhere lately and I wanted to give it a try! PLOT TWIST: I LOVE IT! This t-shirt dress is from Target and comes in 3 sizes; I’m wearing the S/M and find that it gives me plenty of room. While it is plenty oversized, I would recommend laying this flat to dry to ensure that you don’t lose any length after washing!
BIKE SHORTS / I almost didn’t buy these shorts because I was convinced they would be unflattering and make me look “big.” So silly. I’m here to tell you to buy the bike shorts, buy the crop top & buy the bikini…you won’t regret it. Trust me, no one other than you is picking you apart! Now, as for the shorts, they are AMAZING! They’re high-waisted, have pockets (yaaassss) and aren’t too tight around the legs (which was my main concern). I bought them in 2 colors and find that they fit comfortably TTS.
SNEAKERS / Unfortunately my Adidas Edge Lux sneakers have been sold out in this color combo for months; however, I linked my all-time favorite Adidas above! They fit TTS; however, if you have a super narrow foot, I’d go down a 1/2 size.
Sandals (similar), 8 (TTS)
SHIRT / This shirt is from…you guessed it…Target! Because I loved the women’s t-shirt dress so much, I decided to go into the men’s section and snag one of their band tees. I sized up to an XL and absolutely love the fit! This shirt is slightly thicker than the t-shirt dress linked above but would still be fine for a hot summer day; especially with the loose fit! If Guns N’ Roses isn’t your bag, they have LOADS of band tees to choose from! Also, I highly recommend shopping the men’s section; they have a lot of really good basic tees that are more more comfortable than their women counterparts.
BIKE SHORTS / These are the same Old Navy shorts as the pink ones shown above.
