Hey y’all, and happy Wednesday! I was so overwhelmed by all the positive feedback and sweet comments I got on my advice to college freshmen blog post the other day. It was such a great reminder of the most rewarding aspect of blogging, having a positive impact on others. Anyways, today I’m back sharing one more outfit I wore during my girls’ beach weekend. I mentioned in my Emerald Isle travel guide that I love going for a latte run every morning at the beach. My favorite thing to wear for these morning latte runs is an oversized preppy t-shirt and my Lauren James shorties. During my most recent beach trip, I wore my lime green Southern Tide Skipjack Tee, pink gingham Lauren James shorties, and a pink Southern Tide baseball cap.

Southern Tide Skipjack Tee
A classic Southern Tide Skipjack tee is a staple in any preppy t-shirt lover’s closet. I actually found this one at TJ Maxx last summer for about half of the suggested retail price, and was super excited! This lime green color is so fun and summery too. The pictures don’t do it justice- it’s much more vibrant in person! Southern Tide’s fish logo is perfect for loungewear at the beach too. Furthermore, this tee is so soft and comfortable. If you don’t luck out and find one at TJ Maxx, you can order one directly from the Southern Tide website. There are multiple colors to choose from, and you can check them out here.
Lauren James Shorties
Lauren James Shorties are my favorite kind of shorts to wear for my morning latte runs at the beach. The design is very similar to Nike shorts, except they are made of cotton instead of nylon. Therefore, they are more suited for loungewear rather than working out. But like Nike shorts (aka Norts) there is a side panel that is a different color or pattern from the rest of the shorts. Unfortunately, Lauren James doesn’t make their Shorties anymore. But if they bring them back I will make sure y’all know. Luckily I stocked up on multiple pairs of Shorties in both seersucker and gingham before Lauren James discontinued them. For a similar option, you can browse different colors of Norts here.
Southern Tide Gameday Skipjack Hat
I incorporated another bit of Southern Tide into this latte run loungewear ensemble with my Gameday Skipjack Hat. In addition to oversized preppy tees, I also love preppy baseball hats. My Southern Tide Gameday Skipjack Hat is my favorite because it incorporates two of my favorite things-pink and Clemson! The front of the hat has the Southern Tide fish emblem, while one side has the Clemson tiger paw. So cute and the perfect way to show spirit for your favorite team with a preppy twist! If pink isn’t your thing, this hat also comes in khaki and white. You can check it out here. Other schools are available too.

Necklace: Kendra Scott // Earrings: Kendra Scott // Watch: Michael Kors (similar) //

As you can see, I love wearing jewelry with a t-shirt. Part of why I love the Kendra Scott Elisa Pendant so much is it literally goes with everything from a cocktail dress to a tee.
I hope that y’all enjoyed this post and that it provided some fun inspiration for super casual style. One reason I love Southern Tide is because it is based out of Greenville, SC. I used to live in Greenville and it will always be one of my favorite places.
