Warm weather fashion doesn’t have to always mean shorts and skirts. Breezy cropped pants are the dressed up version of shorts and keep you just as cool! Pair them with cute sandals and a fun graphic tee for a no-brainer mom-friendly outfit. Crops are perfect for meeting your kid’s teacher, running errands or playing at the park!
The Phoenix summer is quickly approaching so I’m preparing for sweltering days ahead! Skirts and dresses are my warm-weather staples of choice but cropped pants are all over the place lately so I decided to give them a shot.
Not only are these linen ones cool and easy to wear, they have the added benefit of keeping you covered when chasing kids at the park or in and out of the car (unlike skirts). I linked to these same ones here and some similar pairs down below. I LOVE these, but they are a bit long in the rise. I’m wearing them pretty high in these pictures but sometimes fold the waistband down depending on the shirt I’m wearing. But they’re on sale right now and come in a ton of colors!
I’m also a HUGE fan of fun, bright graphic tees with simple flowy pants! This one is from J Crew Factory last year and they have some super cute ones this year too! Check them all out here. I especially love this cherry tee and this Paris one! And I hope the fruit theme never, ever goes out of style because this top and coin purse make me so happy! (I also linked to some cherry drop earrings below and they’re the CUTEST!)
(side note: these $10 sunglasses are my go-to accessory lately. I got them in 3 colors!)
