We like to think that this look has a sort of French messiness that translates to American chic. Confusing, we know.

This outfit is built with all of the basics: an Alexander Wang silk tank (which should be on sale by now), grey UO boyfriend sweater and navy mid-heel gladiators from Zara.

The one-off here is our little yellow tap shorts by Poleci. Although they were probably not intended to be worn in the sun, we think its a go.

Since Poleci is not yet sold online, try this floral pair by Urban Outfitters. Not much of the print shows, so you are free to find a similar short in any price range.

Accessorize all summer long with a set of Woodsy bracelets.
