Today is the first official day of summer! Which is a little silly to celebrate because other than a mark on the calendar. We've had a lot of warm days already and school is out for everyone unless you're like me and have to do summer school. To "celebrate" this summer beginning though, even if it is just in name, I wanted to put together a chic almost all black outfit. Of course since it's for warm weather I focused around daisy dukes while keeping the look modest and cute.
Top - While I couldn't find this exact crop top I found a very similar one, that's on sale by the way, to make up for it. I love the that it has a bulky design, that's forgiving and keeps the outfit on the modest side. It's all about balance though so this did mean I could wear tighter pants.
Shorts - So the tight pants I mentioned are these. They have a high waist, which is perfect for daisy dukes, and cuffed legs. This gives them a bit of a polished and chic feel while still being casual and summer ready.
Bag - Ivanka Trump sure does make a nice bag, and this one is no exception. I loving adding fun backpacks to school and casual wear like my cat lovers look and added a business style book bag that's pretty high fashion to this look. The gold hardware keep this outfit from being overpoweringly black and the top handle is fun.
Shoes - Finishing off this outfit are the shoes, which I'm loving. They have a pointed toe which is great for longer legs and a strappy design. All together they're super chic and finish off this daisy duke well.
To complement my Daisy Duke Chic Outfit Inspiration I wanted to put together a little collection of makeup essentials to finish it off. For this look I didn't want anything to be too heavy or loud, and trying to keep it classic. That way this makeup guide can be used for school or work without worry.
Nail Polish - At first I'd wanted to go with a bright orange nail polish but trying to keep this from being a rave outfit I went with a softer color.
Lipstick - Dark lipsticks can be harsh so I didn't want to go with one for this daisy duke look. So instead I went with a medium shade matte color that's the perfect mix between fun and feminine.
Eyeshadow - Mac eyeshadows are so much fun so of course I had to add this palette to my makeup essentials. I'd stick with the lighter tones, especially if you have lighter skin but you can totally get use out of the other colors for other looks.
Mascara - Like a lot of my makeup looks I love big eyelashes. I've done date nights with false eyelashes, but I wanted to make this one a bit more natural. So instead I just added in a nice mascara!
