Casual Summer Outfit with Madewell

Madewell sweater

What a weekend! I mentioned on Friday that I was traveling to the beach this weekend. I went to Ocean City, Maryland, and let’s just say, the sun (and all that food) definitely got the best of me! Pretty sure I have a Starbucks venti iced coffee in my future today. But, it was a great weekend! I could definitely spend every weekend at the beach.

If you’re feeling exhausted from the weekend like me, grab a coffee, finish reading this post, and I promise we’ll make it through today together!

Editor’s note: I also stayed up late last night watching the Penguins win the Stanley Cup! Totally worth the lack of sleep. 🙂

I found this sweater during my last Madewell haul, and I absolutely love it. So much so that I wear it almost once a week. It’s the perfect summer layer. I think sweaters and distressed shorts pair so well together. To keep it casual, I wore my Converse sneakers. If you read A Pop of Pink regularly, then you’re used to seeing these by now. Love their versatility!

Unfortunately, the shorts I’m wearing in today’s post are sold out, but I linked up a few different options above that I think are great. Personally, I love the BCBGeneration shorts. Such a great buy!

What I love about casual looks is that they are often so easy to put together. Simple pieces in your closet can be put together in new ways, and with fun accessories (like my panama hat), your outfit can totally be elevated. If you’re looking for more ways to style this hat, check out this post. I also included it as one of five summer wardrobe essentials to have in your closet.

Hope you enjoyed this casual look as much as I did wearing it! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great Monday!
