Last Summer Look

It’s technically, the last day of summer. I’ve been in fall mode for weeks now but the weather this past weekend was holding on to summer. It was still warm enough for me to squeeze out this last summer look. Every year it seems I always do an ode to summer post and the tradition continues this year.

I had intended on shooting a fall look but it was way too hot for turtleneck chunky sweaters. Instead, I decided to pay homage to summer with this mauve pink romper by Urban Outfitters. This romper is really cute on its own but it needed some styling to help it pop. I added a gold chain Michael Kors belt to create more shape and add a unique detail. This is pretty much the only way I wear belts. They are such an underrated accessory but can update a look easily.

I always pay attention to how I can pair complementary or unique color palettes together. The mauve color in the romper pairs well with pinks and browns. Therefore, layering a light pink blazer helped to create a nice contrast which helped the romper pop. The different shades of brown are neutral tones that tie everything together. Of course, there has to be a little bling, enter these droplet earrings. They also tie in the gold accents in the purse and belt. Voilà. You have the perfect end of summer look.

Do you like seeing me break down my outfit choices and why I paired certain pieces? Is it helpful to you? I’m always looking to improve and create more valuable content you all will enjoy.  We recently expanded our content to include a youtube channel with videos focusing on style, beauty, and weekly vlogs. Check it out and let us know what you’d like to see there as well. We’re also working on a few new projects to launch later this year and next year. We are always trying to improve and your feedback is welcomed.

p.s. we = my brother and I. We run this blog together and he is the one behind all the lovely photography on the blog and across my social media.

Keep reading for my tips and as always I’ve linked all my outfit details.

3 Tips To Slay the Off the Shoulder Trend

1)  Let your shoulders be the star.

Pull your hair back. Skip the necklace and grab a pair of statement earrings. I really do think going without the necklace gives the chicest and effortless look. However, if you’re like Lay I need to wear a necklace! Go ahead! There aren’t any rules but might I suggest doing a choker or a minimalistic necklace that falls perfectly at your collar bone.

DSC_03272) Create balance and shape. It’s easy to lose the natural curves of your body when wearing flowy pieces.

If you choose a top like mine that is loose and flowy; go with a bottom with a bit more structure just to create some definition in your curves. This doesn’t mean it has to be super tight! If you choose a more fitted top, go flowy on the bottom. It’s that easy, I swear.  Unless you opt for a dress then you’ll have to modify this tip with a bit more creativity or not at all.

3) Play with color, texture and/or prints.

This is my favorite thing to tell you guys because clothes are a work of art. So express yo self! Seriously, don’t be afraid to add some spark to your look by layering colors, texture or both. It doesn’t have to be dramatic; it could just be working with different hues of the same color like I did.
