My style is usually pretty casual and laid back. I’m all about a great tee and jeans. And come summer, it’s a tee or tank for sure always paired with shorts. The one thing I seem to always struggle to shop for is true blouses. Ones that aren’t boring, and also aren’t just a button-down. I have my fair share of great button-downs but sometimes you just want something a little different. A little more feminine, or a little more fashion-forward. It’s the thing I find myself always saying I need to shop for the most. To me, my closet feels like it’s the one thing it’s lacking. Great blouses.
For summer, it’s a whole other ball game too. A blouse for summer must be cotton or linen. Or it’s a hard no from me. Atlanta summers are no joke and the humidity can turn you into a pool of sweat by before lunchtime within minutes. I’ve learned my lesson. And that lesson is to always check the fabric composition of your clothing. If it isn’t mostly cotton or linen, it’s a no for me. Lyocell I’ll allow, but I really do aim to have at least 50% of the fabric composition be either cotton or linen. It makes all the difference and you’ll thank me later once you start checking your clothing tags before adding to cart.
Summer Blouses To Shop
Great summer blouses, like this one I’m wearing today from LOFT, are so easy to pair with your favorite shorts or denim. But can also easily be worn with some work pants to head into the office if you need to. You can also add a blazer or light cardigan if you’re at your desk and need a third piece or just something to keep you warm in the always chilly cubicle. These blouses today are easy to style, classic and not too trendy. They’ll keep you from dying of sweat this summer while still looking pulled together. All without throwing on just a tank top.

When I find something I love I sometimes end up buying it in a few colors. Especially if it’s super affordable. First these pull on shorts from LOFT. I grabbed them in beige and black to have for summer. I find myself reaching for them all the time. They’re insanely comfortable. I’m wearing my usual LOFT size, small. And this pretty printed blouse was shockingly a favorite. I was unsure of it but decided to just try it. It’s now a favorite in my closet. I love it so much I also grabbed it in the blue.
