Goodbye Spring, Hello Summer

June 11, 2019

I’d like to think of this look as a Spring/Summer mash up. Spring fashion is all about light colors, airy fabrics and pastels. That is represented by this light blue, ruffle hem skirt that I’m wearing. Summer, on the other hand, is all about the bold and the bright. Eye catching colors and patterns is what we have to look forward to in this upcoming season. In fact, that trend has already infiltrated the fashion scene with all of the neon green I’ve been seeing lately. That portion of this look is represented by this orange tank top. So essentially, this outfit is a farewell to Spring and a hello to Summer!

Be sure to check out the outfit details below. Unfortunately, the orange tank top has limited inventory remaining but take a look at the similar option I’ve provided below.

I have been getting a good amount of comments lately about how simple my style is. And I really take that as a compliment. Although I love all of the bells and whistles as much as the next girl, for me, the core of style has always started with fit. I learned pretty early on that if your clothes fit well, you can wear the simplest of outfits and still look chic. So, it became my focus to discover what styles suit my body the best and that really dictated how I dress. Don’t get me wrong, accessories are crucial to an outfit as well, but nothing trumps fit.

So, this look is one that I would categorize as pretty simple. I took a basic grey dress that, in my opinion, is just as needed in your wardrobe as an LBD. I love the criss-cross design and ruching of this particular one. It’s a little on the shorter side but hey, Summer is coming! I wanted to give it a pop of color so I found this red floral kimono while at Target. It fits more like a cape so it’s light, airy and just blows in the wind. I’ve said this plenty of times before how versatile kimonos are and this one is not different. Finishing off the look with sleek brown accessories was all that it needed.

Brighter Side

It’s officially June (my birthday month), so I’m just letting you know in advance that I’m about to act up. Just kidding! (…but am I?). But in all seriousness, one thing that I love about June and the start of Summer is the influx of vibrant colors. The brighter, the better and the more color that you can fit into one look, the better. The weather is just so warm and lovely so it’s only right that you reflect the spirit of the season. So, this dress is the perfect start to one of the best months of the year.

As you will see from the outfit details below, this dress is from Pretty Little Thing. I don’t often shop there because honestly, I did not have a good experience from the first time I placed an order. However, I saw this dress and decided to give it a shot. I absolutely love the color and was pleasantly surprised by the fit. The sleeves are definitely too big but something that I can live with. I can’t say that I will be a consistent customer from here on out, but this was indeed a much better experience than I had before.I thought that the dress was going to be closer to a lime green but it is a true chartreuse color. I immediately knew that I was going to pair it with magenta pink accents because it just pairs so seamlessly with this shade. The dress has quite a bit going on so minimal was the way to go. Simple high heel sandals, a box clutch, and matching lipstick was all this outfit needed to make it a complete look!
