My new summer outfit formula

Top: Target (shop)  |  Shorts: Target (similar)  |  Sandals: Target (similar)  |  Necklace: Nordstrom’s  |  Clutch: DSW (shop, more colors)

Being that the weather in San Diego seldom deviates +/-8 degrees from 70 degrees, I’m glad when I get to exercise my summer style skills, or rather, lack thereof.  Pre-blog, I just endured the few weeks of the year that were 78+ degrees by rotating through my many pajama dresses.  It was a formula that worked, but it’s time to add another one for some variety, you know?  And I think this is it: colored shorts, patterned top, and/or a contrasting color in the accessories or the top itself.  
There’s only so many things I can figure out to do with shorts and a top, so instead, I’m letting the colors do the work of making things interesting.  Some previous outfits with this formula (click the pic to go to the full post):
But yeah, of course pajama dresses aren’t going anywhere because like I mentioned in a past post, I only have two pair of colored shorts!  What is your current go-to summer “formula”?
