80s summer nights

8/17/2017


Alright, ladies of the 80s; get in formation!

Although I am a 90s baby by birth, the bright colors and graphics of the 80s really speak to me. I've also been spinning some serious 80s vibes on vinyl lately; so when I spotted this bright pink sweatshirt on clearance during a recent Target run, I was SOLD.

You're probably wondering why I would style a sweatshirt in the middle of August, and I don't blame you! *cue the Grease soundtrack* But oh, those summer NIIIIGHTS! The ones where the temperature cools down and the air is breezy, with bonfire smoke in the air and s'mores in your belly? YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKIN' ABOUT!

This sweatshirt is perfect for THOSE nights because it's not too heavy and has an adorable cropped cut. It makes me feel like CALIFORNIA; or what I can imagine California feels like because I've never actually been there... (FF Confessions)

I styled the sweatshirt with summer-friendly pieces that are still packin' on the retro feels. Take a look:







I paired the $12 Mossimo Supply Co. sweatshirt with a pair of vintage-style high wasted denim shorts from H&M. These bottoms are soft and slimming; a combo that is hard to find with high wasted shorts. They zip up the side, leaving the front plain with small detailing. They remind me of a retro swimsuit look, which I LOVE.

For shoes, I chose these dv Adrianna Slide Sandals; also a $12 Target clearance find. I have a fair share of slides in my closet, but this pair is super EDGY with the grommet hardware. I find them to be very comfortable, and the unique style can really add some edge to a simple look.

To accessorize, I opted for a pair of shades that I felt complimented the look best. These round LOFT shades with blue lenses are no longer available, but a style like this is easy to find at the moment. The retro shape can be worn with most outfits.

Hot days and cool nights; that's what the final month of summer is all about! If you noticed a few of these pieces came from Target clearance, I'll also clue you in that their clearance section is HUGE right now as they make room for new fall pieces and new brands. So, in other words, it's time for a trip to Target!
