One word that describes my weekend style - casual. If you see me on the weekends, chances are I am wearing linen shorts, a tank top, and flip flops. I recently purchased a great pair of linen Theory shorts in navy (on sale of course), and they are the most comfortable thing in my closet. They are perfect for my sunny California weekends.

Here are a few of my casual style icons.

Nicole Richie

Kristin Cavallari

Audrina Patridge

Jessica Alba

Do you have a summer style?


  1. Marcie!:D I love wearing dresses during the summer.:D

    Happy to be following you, I didn't know that I wasn't until today!
    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  2. I don't really do casual weekends -- only because I'm a nanny all week, and it's casual every day! I like tossing on a breezy sundress pretty much all the rest of the time :)

  3. Marcie - what you said girlfriend. Pass the shorts, the tanks and the sandals because that's the way to go in summer. At my house it goes between that outfit (versions of it) and a few skirts and dresses. We don't need much more here in California and are so blessed because of it. Summer can be such an easy time fashion-wise.

    ps - love nicole richie's style too. so laid back.

  4. Love your outfits and your style inspirations! It gets so hot down here, you just have to factor in being comfortable as well as looking cute.

  5. I love your style inspirations!! So effortless, yet pretty. I especially love those sandals you posted! I think my summer style is probably a sundress and sandals. I love to just throw on a casual dress and cute sandals, so comfy!

  6. I love white tank tops...Which reminds me, I need to head to Old Navy.

    I am a dress girl, and also an avid Anthropolgie shopper, they always have the cutest dresses and accessories.

  7. Great sunglass choices.
    I love Nicole Richie too. My summer style varies, but for the most part it’s pretty casual. Maxi dresses are my go to summer uniform.

  8. FLIP-FLOPS!!!
    I love it when winter is over, there is no more snow and I can put away those winter boots and slip into flip-flops. They are a staple of my summer!
    I love the flip-flop sound.

  9. I'm dying over those pink shorts, Marcie! I love them. Audrina and Jessica Alba are two of my favorites for their summer style too. And I'm the same way- mostly casual, beachy, comfortable outfits make me happy when it's hot outside. I also LIVE in my havaianas. I think I have them in almost every color now. Haha.


  10. I WISH I could wear shorts, but I just feel stumpy when I do! So I basically live in sundresses :)

  11. My summer style is long, sensuous, flowing dresses in either white, floral, midnight blue, yellow and orange. For a change I might wear shorts with sandals and headscarf. Love the casual look of the outfits above. X

  12. Love your outfits and your style icons!! Jessica Alba looks so cute in that outfit!!! Love her shirt!!!! My summer wardrobe usually consists of sundresses, shades and cute sandals. I just feel so much more comfortable in dresses when it's hot! :)

  13. We just might have the same summer style... These are easily my casual summer icons too!!

  14. I CANNOT WAIT for summer...especially after seeing these outfits!

    I usually wear long summer dresses with sandals. And I absolutely love the look of shorts too.

  15. Oh, I want those Mistique sandals! So pretty! You have a great summer weekend look going on! Hope you have a wonderful day :)

  16. Love all of your selections. Those pink shorts are adorable and I like the second white top, it looks like it would be so flattering.
    I am all about the shorts this summer. I often have stayed away from them in the past, but this summer I have unleashed them. Comfort, comfort!

  17. I adore shorts too...I wear them most of the summer with a tunics or some cotton tees....Flip-flops are so comfy and I wear a lot of summer dresses....flowy and easy:)
    Great selection...Love the pink shorts:)

  18. Adore every gal and item listed here...that bracelet and those turquoise sandals are really stand out winners!

  19. That's pretty much my summer style! Shorts, tank top, scarf and sunglasses!

  20. pretty much the same! i love prints but lately i've moved toward basic colors of white grey and black, boring i know but i spice them up with jewelry :)

  21. I adore Nicole Richie's style too. I love those turquoise sandals and sunglasses you picked.
