Classic Stripes | Everyday Summer Look

stripes, chic summer look, summer Outfit

Stripes are classic and I love wearing then in the summer.  Wearing stripes always make my outfits look really clean, put together and relaxed.

My brother and I were going to the park for a walk and ice cream. Therefore, my main goal was to be comfortable in this summer heat. This striped shirt from Zara was perfect, I tied the bottom and rolled up the sleeves to keep it relaxed and breezy. The shorts I paired it with has an unfinished hem which I love and adds to the relaxed vibe.

I want to take a moment to gush over my shoes. These Marc Fisher shoes have been a favorite in my closet for June because I love how easy they are to dress up or down. Not to mention they become more comfortable every time I wear them. Unfortunately, these loafers are currently sold out.  However, the new summer line is great and worth checking out.

The Lace Cami | How to wear this summer trend

lace cami

lace camiThe lace cami is sexy, chic and trendy. It is great for layering under a blazer, button down or denim jacket this summer.

The cami comes in many different styles and cuts. The one I’m wearing falls right at the top of my hips and looks great tucked into pants or shorts. It’s also a really great layering piece and shows off the perfect amount of skin.I wrote a post awhile back on the art of layering for winter. However, layering is just as useful for the summer, especially when going in between the hot temperatures outside and the blasting cold AC on the inside.

The lace camisole is simple but has lots of texture which inspires me to want to be creative with the styling. I paired my lace cami with bolder cut pants that added movement and balance. To spice up my look I went for a pair of bright turquoise earrings and multicolored floral print shoes to tie everything together.

The Wrap Dress | Casual Summer Look

Anytime I think about the wrap dress I think Diane Von Furstenburg. It is a signature style of her brand and rightfully so. Wrap dresses are perfect for spring and summer because they’re easy and chic. There is always a slight bit of sophistication with this style of dress just because the silhouette is so flattering. I find it really helps to define curves and that is a plus for me.

My dress is from Missguided and falls in that blush/dusty pink color scale. I love this color and it is a staple in my wardrobe, it just so easy to style. My chunky sandals from Mango paired well and were great for walking around the city. My brother and I even got caught in the rainstorm and the shoes held up well. What more could you ask for in a pair of shoes beside a great price?

Gold is my go-to color for accessories, especially with my dress shade. My jewelry is from my mom and one day I hope to create a collection based off her designs. She has such a great collection and has gifted me my favorite pieces over the years.

3 Quick & Easy Tips for Wearing High Waisted Shorts

high waisted

One of my summer wardrobe staples is high waisted shorts. High waisted shorts are very flattering on so many figures and help to create the illusion of longer legs. Who doesn’t want to make their legs to seem miles long? Casual and carefree or dressed up these shorts can do double duty all summer.

My look is casual, simple and crisp which is perfect for laid back days. I paired my shorts with this sheer open back top that works well for warmer temperatures because the material is so breezy. Since I wanted to keep my jewelry minimal I threw on some statement earrings that really popped and completed the look. It was that easy.  

Don’t worry I included tips for how to style this summer staple to make sure you nail it every time. Check them out below and let me know your summer wardrobe staples.

2 Skip the belt.

Of course, you can wear a belt but it’s not really necessary for high waisted shorts. Skipping the belt creates a really casual and carefree vibe which is great for summer.

3 Tuck it in.

Your top that is. If you go for a longer top tuck it halfway or all the way in. Also, crop tops work great too.

Pink Blossoms | Easy Summer Outfit

summer, summer outfit

The blush is back in full force.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you . The weather is picking up in Boston, finally, it is starting to feel a bit like summer. In the warmer months, I’m all about choosing simple and easy outfits like the shift dress from Socialite. It is no surprise that I love dresses but I love wearing them when I have a full day because they transition well to different scenes. Going from a lunch date to running errands to drinks is easy.

Layering on the accessories adds personality and element of glam. I’m a sucker for simple glam which is why I love these jewelry pieces from a local shop in Martha’s Vineyard. The look is polished off with my chunky Dolce Vita heels which are so comfortable to wear all day. I definitely need a few more pair.

Rainy Day Special

rain, rainy day

It has been raining for days in Boston which makes shooting my outfits difficult. I was able to snap these photos in between a lull of the hard downpours, it literally had just stopped raining, we pulled over and hopped out the car to snap these photos. I’m happy for the rainy days if only so I can sport my rain coat and have an excuse to go snag a new book from the bookstore. Because what better way to spend a rainy day than snuggling up with a good book?  Since the weather is still pretty warm despite the rain I opted for my Marc Fisher flats instead of rain boots and to keep the metallic vibes going for this look.

I’m terrible at carrying an umbrella and they usually fail me. My umbrellas never last, if you have any good recommendations please help a girl out. It’s for this precise reason that I love wearing headscarves on rainy days. Headscarves keep my hair in place and protected under my hood while adding a unique detail. The one I’m wearing I bought from a little Parisian shop years ago but I included some others you can shop below. The rest of the look is fairly simple, just jeans, a lightweight white top, and a crossbody bag.

I hope you all are experiencing better weather than we are in Boston. I can’t wait for the rain to let up so I can shoot summer looks to share with you.

Blush Accents

It’s June and I’m wondering how this year seems to keep speeding by. First, hi. Second, I’ve been gone awhile and I apologize but a post going up Monday will give more details on where I’ve been. That’s out of the way so can I please rant about this New England weather?! My head spins every day putting together an outfit with the inconsistent whims of Mother Nature. As of late, I’ve been leaning towards really, really easy daytime looks because they require little effort and time. I love this co-ord set I picked up from Asos because it falls into that easy category plus the colors are perfect for this time of year. Blush is always my favorite color especially in the warmer months, get used to seeing it a lot.

Co-ord sets are great for creating a stylish look when short on time or effort. I tend to really love the ones from Asos and Missguided for affordable options, you can also shop a few from my closet on Poshmark. Chains have always been my preference over more statement type necklaces and I literally cannot stop wearing them in this layered style. I love that name chains are trendy again even if I’ve never stopped wearing mine since high school.  Just one more thing because I must mention this fab clutch. It’s my idea of a perfect clutch down to the hints of blush which I picked up a few months ago from & Other Stories. That brand has stolen a little piece of my heart. I can’t wait to share more with you all on Monday.
