The first step to keeping cool when it’s super hot outside is picking the right fabrics. For me, that’s almost always cotton. So light, so comfy and breezy.

This pink-and-white striped top and shorts are by CROSBY by Mollie Burch. They have a bunch of bold, colorful prints on their site, many inspired by Palm Springs. Check it out! It’s always fun to discover new brands.

Sadly, this top and these shorts are no longer available, but here are some more great pink-and-white striped options.

 

Top 5 Pink & White Striped Tops, Shorts & Dresses

1. This pink-and-white striped top is an amazing option at under $10.

2. These pink-and-white striped shorts are only $10 + work well with the above top.

3. If you’re more of a dress girl, I love this classic pink-and-white striped dress and it’s under $100.

4. This plus-size set is darling and under $15.

5. If you prefer a sleeve, this top is cute and would be great with these shorts.

 

Speaking of new brands, this cute dalmatian-print spotted clutch is by another new-to-me brand called Dress for Cocktails.

There are many different prints (and solid colors) you can choose from, but what’s even more fun is that the bow is detachable and interchangeable. I also have a coral bow I look forward to swapping in with different outfits.

Can we talk about these bunny ear slides?

They’re by yet another new-to-me brand, Minna Parikka.

BOW SLIDES

Other than flip-flops, I actually have a really hard time finding comfortable flats because my feet are super sensitive. These are SO comfy right from the start. I believe they’re satin, so I guess I need to always get satin shoes in the future (several options linked below!). 😉 But they are proof that flats need not be boring.

Unfortunately they are no longer available, but I’ve linked some more bow slides that are super cute. I have the gold Loeffler Randall penny bow sandals in the heeled version and they’re the most comfortable pair of heels I’ve ever worn, so imagine the flats are even better. I might need to snag a pair myself!

Candy Striper: Kelly Golightly wears Crosby by Mollie Burch pink-and-white striped top anfd shorts that look like a candy striper in Palm Springs. Minna Parikka bunny slides, white Bauble Bar flower petal earrings, a Leslie Dasch Dress for Cocktails dalmatian clutch, and Hats by Olivia boater hat, and white heart sunglasses complete the look.

Also new, these white flower earrings! The price was so good I couldn’t resist, as they’re the type of earrings I’ll wear again and again.

These sold out but these white flower earrings are nearly identical.

Finally, you’ve seen these white heart sunnies and this boater hat a billion times and for good reason — I love them! And both keep the sun out of my eyes without weighing me down.

You can find the white heart sunnies for less than $20 here.

What do you wear to stay cool when the temps start to soar?
