Is it hot in South Florida or what?! Sometimes, when it’s this hot outside, all I want to wear is a cotton t-shirt with cutoff shorts. But since that’s not always an option (think: lunch dates), I decided to feature this look – which, in my opinion, is a slight step up to a causal summer-style look.
