Now's the time of year when we roll out our end of summer hauls, shop for the last cute tank tops on sale, and start to find new basics for fall. I've been shopping around every sale and checking out new stores that I've never tried before, which is how I came across this beautiful basic cream blouse online. This is my first time trying clothes from Princess Polly and I love the quality. Their summer styles and fabrics really are suited to hot days, well worth the spend. I've fallen in love with this unique look, from the tie string sleeves to the cool vintage buttons. It's so chic and beautifully done. The fabric is airy and light yet not see-through, in fact I was able to keep on a black bra on for this photoshoot. I decided to wear it with my comfy bright blue shorts and canvas sneakers. This top will transition well to a night look with a silk skirt and heels, or to the office under a gorgeous suit. Do you like wearing long-sleeves in the summer? I find it a lot comfier than a jacket + tank top for going into buildings. Just tuck it into your shorts on one side and your good to go with a cute outfit!
I recently understood that there is a gaping hole in the chasm of my closet, and it is: fancy summer tops. I've got plenty of lace, sparkle, and shine to wear all winter long. Yet in hot weather, my selection of beautiful tops for dinner dates and glamorous events is lacking. It's been a long time since I've wanted to make a great impression on anyone (my wedding, a couple of job interviews). June just marked our four-year anniversary! I want to make a bigger fashion statement in my life on the daily then I have in the past. I'm turning 23 this week and it's a cool marker for me, want to take bigger strides toward my goals now. I was searching for something untraditional and dynamic, very dressed up. I figured a UK-based store would have more of what I'm looking for since all the fashion bloggers that have any drama in their wardrobes seem to be from there. Riverisland hit it out of the park! Their prices are right on, and so is their quality. I love the attention to detail in this ruffled black shirt. I purchased two other "dressed up" shirts from their collection and they all fit like a glove. The sparkly ring adds some beauty in addition to the puffy sleeves, and I like the little bit of cleavage it allows with a deep v-neck. I paired this outfit with trendy lace-up sandals and patterned tribal shorts from H&M. Blue, black, and white keep it classy. I added a lovely black bag while matching metals and held the chain in my hand to balance an accessory off with that belt buckle. Keep checking back to see me style the other two tops I purchased! What I'm Wearing -Black Ruffle Top with Buckle Detail -Blue and White High Waisted Shorts H&M -White Strappy Sandals Schultz -Black Chain Bag B.T.
I'm not necessarily one for much layering, it's definitely an area where I want to step it up. I love to wear my tank tops in the summertime and often need to cover up before going into a building. I absolutely love this pretty color combination. Pastels in this category make a beautiful match. These shorts are basically bright blue and add a fun touch. I have owned this blazer and high waisted shorts for ages and they are both favorite items of mine. I bought the mint tank top from forever21 recently on my first shopping trip since our health crisis started. To put together this look I basically just went through my closet with the tank top on the hanger and put it up against a couple of items one by one to find a great outfit combination. After picking that, I chose an accessory color (white) and added a necklace that allowed some mixed metals. By the way, I didn't notice until I finished shooting but the necklace is lopsided for most of the photos.. drives me crazy, how about you? Anyways, shop the links below to get this cute look for yourself! Mint Tank Top $12.00 40s Zoot Short $250.00 It's so great to wear shorts with a gorgeous summer heel and I hope you love this look too!
Two Top Quality Heeled Beachy Sandals For Nights Out
This summer the hottest trends have revolved around your shoe game. There is so much new to shoes this summer, from the square-toed pump to crazy bubble stilettos.

It's always special to find a hot midi dress to love. They are so easy to throw on and make every woman look fabulous with the most basic of accessories! This bright neon green inspires me to be so creative. I'm a sucker for a tight dress. I get a real confidence boost from this outfit and feel ready to take on anything! I like to experiment with color, especially in the summer. I opted for a simple camel toned sandal and yellow tote bag for some fun contrast in this outfit. The ribbed fabric is not see-through at all and is structured enough that I feel comfortable wearing it out and about without any shapewear. I feel like it is also versatile enough for a night look with a quick change of accessories. How often would you wear this hot neon green dress for Summer 2020? Get it here!
Cream Structured Shorts Casual Outfit For Summer 2020
I do have a few pairs of denim shorts, but since denim is so stiff I rarely wear them in enough to want to go out in them. This pair, however, is textured denim mixed with (cotton, maybe?) and is super easy to sit down in. I love the black stitching that surrounds out the pockets and waist. I also feel like they are a great length and don't go too short for any ordinary day. I styled these high-waisted cream shorts with my fun black tee from free people and a pair of flip flops. With structured pockets, waistline, and the fun graphic style I feel very comic-book glam. A super fun outfit that looks semi thought out for wherever your heading! What I'm Wearing Women's High Rise Jean Shorts by Universal Thread (still available in plus size!) Black Shoulder Knot Tee (no longer sold, see similar here)
I like to try to incorporate certain items into my closet year-round. At the end of February, we end up with some high sales on things from New Year's Eve that didn't sell out. I purchased this crop top then, and it caught my attention with the red and black poppies print. Although it feels wintery, the puff sleeves are so flirty, and since I haven't taken a night out in ages, I planned out this look to repurpose the top to daytime. I'll feel pretty and classy as I spend the day running errands, getting my nails done, or taking kiddo to a playdate. As you can tell, I do cycle between many styles, especially in the summertime. I like to adjust things according to the weather and bounce around between dresses, jeans, shorts, and skirts. I have so many bottoms that I realized I need to go out and get a bunch of summer tanks and t-shirts because I've got basically none. I spend a considerable amount of my shopping budget on dresses and jeans, but on the other hand, buy my tops almost exclusively on sale or at a lower cost. Would you pair this look with jewelry? Chunky black sandals? A hair accessory? I love having timeless pieces to style around in my closet. I mix well-priced tops from stores like H&M with beautiful essentials like this skirt that I can wear over and over again. You can get a hold of this style for yourself from a sweet local business or online at their shop :) Link is down below. What I'm Wearing: -H&M Smock Sleeve Poppy Blouse -Fall For You Skirt by Line and Dot -Vintage Black Bag from Goodwill -Tan Leather Sandals from Target
Beautiful Blue and White Dresses are Summer's Best
The best summer trend this season is definitely the day to night dress! With a quick change of accessories, this blue and white style fits right into my closet for the busiest of days. These past couple of summers I have been seeing more and more of this beautiful pattern, inspired by china pottery. I've been hoping to come across one to wear myself. I found this one at a local boutique and fell in love! I feel dreamy and light in this gorgeous dress. A long midi dress is fantastic in hot summertime. A basic style like this can be the focal point of your outfit. The engaging pattern makes me very creative! I plan to try a couple of things with this look. A white button up shirt can be worn, knotted at the bottom for those windy outdoor days. Grab an oversized blazer and some black kitten heels and belt this for a night look! Or take a white Michael Kors tote bag (see here) and a statement necklace to the local roses garden for a photo op! I just love how the simple fit inspires me to experiment.

It can be hard to make certain styles work if you aren't comfortable with mixing colors. For this reason, I stick to only two color options when I am unsure how to wear a new item. Typically the easiest color to add to the mix is blue! This cute wrap skirt is a very breezy fabric that looks like denim but wears like linen. I'm so pleased to find such a bright and unique shade! It is simple and minimal. This cute wrap skirt is a very soft fabric that looks like linen but feels like a straightforward suede. I decided to keep with the relaxed style it gives away. After some trouble choosing something that goes, I realized it would overwhelm the beauty of the color to style with my usual black or white. So I decided on a bone-colored short sleeve shirt from Target. Then I grabbed the slip-on sandals to match. This allows the color to stand out! I feel cool and funky in this look.
