The T-Shirt And Jean Alternative

I've always been a t-shirt and jeans kinda gal, but in July when humidity is running high, jeans are typically a no-go. I think we can all agree that sweat among the unknown crevices is uncomfortable for everyone and should be avoided at all costs.

Now, one would presume that in this case, a simple swap of full-length jeans for jean shorts would be the next best option, but I wholeheartedly disagree. You see, they don't lend themselves to many places. Take work, for example. My work environment is super laid back and pretty much anything goes in terms of dress, but jean shorts are too casual for even there. They're not like other shorts where you can simply throw on heels and look like the office's best dressed with your sassy self. No,  jean shorts are different, and we all know it.

Which is why my favorite t-shirt and jean alternative as of late has been swapping out the jeans altogether. For what, you ask? A skirt. Any option will work. Sequins? Do it. Pleated midi? Right on. The girlier the better, because really, how cool does it look when you pair laid back with an unexpected splash of glam?
