Summer Outfit Inspo: Fun, Throw-On-And-Go Outfits On 5 Different Bodies

WE ARE BACK. The EHD team had a retreat in Mexico this recent week and it was so wonderful in a million ways (which I can’t wait to share with you). For today we decided to take a photo or two of some of our lewks that made us feel cute, comfortable, and just super summer (if that were an adjective). It was 75 during the day (a bit chilly at night). Head to stories to see these clothes more in action 🙂

Emily

Dress | Head Bandana (unavailable) | Shoes

I shall call this the dress I thought I liked a LOT and now realize I LOVE. The pattern and colors are so good, the fabric is super drapey and the boxiness of it gives it style. Is it flattering? Not in the typical way, but after wearing a suit all day and, of course, eating lots of delicious food, this was the only dress that I wanted to wear. Dress it up or down – heels or flip-flops. And while my bandana is vintage I think this is going to be my headdress move all summer. Also, those $15 sunglasses are wonderful.

Gretchen

Top | Swimsuit Top (Not Available) | Pants | Sunglasses

Another linen set from Old Navy? Yes please! This is an easy, breezy and BRIGHT two piece-er that makes me feel tanner than I am and ready for vacation! The swimsuit top is old, but the gauzy top and flowy, pull-on pants are two awesome new additions to my linen line-up. I love how saturated the color is and the texture just feels beachy. Easy enough to slip on over a swimsuit and run to lunch, but so comfy you might find yourself falling asleep wearing them—not that I’m speaking from experience or anything. Also these sunglasses are an exact replica to a pair I bought (and broke) while visiting Toronto. I loved them so much and was devastated when they snapped, so I tried my luck finding the same pair on Amazon (thank you google lens) and scored them for a whopping $17, just in time for the team trip!

Top | Skirt | Purse | Sandals

Guys, I’m OBSESSED with this look and will be rocking it all summer long. I saw it at J. Crew and decided to try it on and it was an immediate “hell yes”. The skirt has 3 buttons so it’s adjustable around the waist and it’s elastic so it’s really comfy but it’s more of a cover-up kind of skirt since the slit is very large (can be safety pinned or sewn shut so the slit is less intense). It’s also super lightweight so it’s perfect for the warmer months. I can’t wait to pair the top with some light blue denim and rock a different look too!! I was surprised to find out it wasn’t very expensive for J. Crew — plus this purse went so well with it and it’s on sale for $26 right now!

Jess

Dress | Bag

Going into & Other Stories is always a gamble for me. Sometimes a huge success and other times well…not and the limited sizing is the issue. Luckily, this time was a big success as shown through this yellow dress🙂 It’s a large which is their biggest size (GET IT TOGETHER & OTHER STORIES! WHAT?!). So aside from that I really loved the color, the subtle floral pattern and the length. On the website they call it a midi dress but at 5’4″ it’s a maxi on me:) It also comes in a solid red which I’m highly considering too. It’s just easy to dress up or down and awesome for summer.

Caitlin

Top | Shorts | Sandals

If you love the look and feel of linen but you’re not crazy about the price tag, you need to RUN to Target IMMEDIATELY. This set was $35 and it feels incredible – soft, breathable, and comfortable (you know a gal loves an elastic waistband!). I have a long torso and found that the tank would flash just the right amount of skin – I’m not comfortable in “crop tops” and I normally wouldn’t gravitate to this draped cut with my 36F boobs, but I was SO surprised by how at ease I felt in this combo. I’m usually a 12/14 and grabbed a large in both pieces – they really feel like a nice way to dip my toes into the world of matching sets in a way that doesn’t feel like I’m trying to dress like a teen! (PS. The rest of the A New Day collection is unreal – I grabbed this linen-blend dress and these pants and the quality is UNREAL for the price. You’ll love it, I swear!)

Hope these got you excited for the warmer months! See ya tomorrow. xx

You all look fabulous and I hope you had the best time!! For my fellow petite women: I am very small boned and petite so it’s harder to shop at Target but I also found the new linen jumpsuit at Target in xs and it looks so good! It has adjustable straps which I need as a short girl and I still need to hem it but the proportions are just right even so! It was $30 and looks much more luxe than the price tag!

Also I see there is a review that it’s way too big but I am shorter and way less then the person and it fit perfect everywhere else except length which I take as a win because hemming is the easiest fix! Gotta help fellow petites out!

But what about Jess’s red pants in the header photo? I need flowy pants and only flowy pants.

Sorry, they aren’t for sale anymore! Here’s a link to one on Poshmark though. I’m wearing a medium!

Can we please drop the world flattering from the clothing lexicon? Flattering to one is unflattering to another. Wear what you feel amazing in and I can assure you people around with think you look great because you will exude confidence and you feeling confident in a piece of clothing is all that matters.

Ohhh…I have those same orange pants from Old Navy. But at 5’4″, I knew they would be too long on me since they are big all around. I bought them in the petite, and they are so cute. I accidentally threw in the dryer, and they didn’t shrink thank goodness. I have the A New Day dress Caitlin mentions above. I have in the creamy white w/ very fine black stripe. I can attest it is great. The quality of the linen is top notch. The price tag cannot be beat. I ordered another one, even though I don’t really need. Cannot go wrong with either of these! Looks like you gals all had a great time!

Emily, where’s your green bag from? I swear I’ve been googling “olive green woven leather handbag” for months. They have one at Madewell that was too small for me, but this looks nice.

It’s Clare V.! It’s the brand that Madewell and Target have been ripping off recently.
