A go-to look of mine for summer is denim shorts, a basic top and cute sandals.  I tend to wear the same sandals and top (alternating between white and denim shorts) when I am in a hurry or do not feel like planning an outfit.  I decided that starting this summer I am going to do better at changing up my shorts and sandals look and have invested in gladiator sandals to add variety to my closet.  I was very hesitant at first because I do not have stick thin legs, so I was not sure how this style would look on me.  Turns out I committed to two great pairs and I think they are a lot of fun!

Top | Shorts | Sandals | Clutch | Sunglasses

For this look, I went with a basic pair of white shorts and a classic black top.  This off-the-shoulder top is one of my favorites right now (and it comes is multiple color options so I linked them below!).  Like I said, I wanted to add some excitement to my look so I added these gold gladiator sandals that I found at Zappos.  They are a great pair to try if you are at all hesitant because they will not break the bank.  The gold tone makes a bold statement and will definitely add something special to an otherwise basic look!
