There are some items in my closet that work for almost any occasion and can be paired with several other pieces in order to extend my wardrobe and serve as closet staples. Today I paired two of my all time favorite closet staples together to create a simple, effortless summer look. Those items are this adorable flowy red top and high waisted shorts. red top and navy high waisted shorts - 5 red top and navy high waisted shorts - 1

This red top is one of those pieces that I can work into my wardrobe all four seasons of the year. I love that it's lightweight, which is perfect for warmer months while also sitting at a three quarter length, making it great as a layering piece for fall or winter. The flowy cut is extremely flattering, and it's actually a longer tunic; so it looks great both tucked in and hanging loose. Plus it comes in so many colors! (and I may or may not own a few of them!)

I fell in love with these navy high waisted shorts last summer and they've been a staple throughout this summer as well. High waisted shorts are perfect for someone with my body type because they help to highlight my better features (toosh and legs) while helping to hide my not so great features (hips and waist). Plus they make someone like me who has long legs, make them look even longer without having to wear really short shorts (not a fan). Plus these cuties have front pockets, which I am all about!
