summer basics on a budget


Happy almost Friday, y’all! I am so excited to share some great summer basics on a budget today! If you’ve been following me for a while or even if you do a quick scroll of my Instagram, you know I LOVE summer fashion– denim cutoff’s, easy tanks, cute sandals, etc. With July being right around the corner (um how is that possible?!), I basically live in outfits like this these days. I seriously can’t get enough! With that in mind, I wanted to share some great summer basics I recently found at PacSun that are perfect for these warmer months. Their clothes are so cute and the prices are super reasonable!


This outfit is basically my summer uniform. I’m always on the lookout for good quality denim on a budget and PacSun has so many great options for that! These cutoff denim shorts are so comfortable and I think the high waist makes for a flattering fit. The light wash is perfect for summer, too, and makes them a great option for all your casual summer hangouts! And y’all… they are $20! um, yes please! I’m all about splurging occasionally, but for the most part I really like my wardrobe to stay pretty reasonable, so I was really excited when I saw that price tag. If you are looking to load up on great, affordable denim, I highly recommend checking out PacSun’s Back to School Denim sales coming up soon! Starting July 6th, you can shop everything online and then on July 18th, you can shop both online and in stores!

How cute is this knotted tank? I am loving the knot trend in tees and tanks, so when I saw this one in a fun pink color, I knew I had to have it! The pink is the perfect color for showing off your summer glow and it also comes in a classic white too. It’s a soft, lightweight tank that can be worn with cutoff’s or even dressed up with jeans!

Outfit Details: knotted tank | cutoff shorts | similar aviator sunglasses | sandals | necklace

Another great thing about the outfit I’m sharing today (and really, Pacsun overall), is that these pieces would all make GREAT staples for going back to school! You could totally wear these denims shorts around campus and the tank could be paired with nearly anything (including sweats – yes please!)

This post was created in collaboration with Pacsun. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own!
