Summer, Summer, Summertime

Happy Saturday and Happy Memorial Day Weekend. Who is already for it to officially be summer? Not that it doesn’t already feel like it. In the summer wearing dresses is my thing because they are so simple and easy, especially when it is extremely hot and humid outside. I am a fan of dresses that are airy and light, like this one dress in the post. It is super comfy and great for many occasions, such as work, date night and a get together with friends. I mean it is even appropriate to wear to church, it’s that versatile. Another reason I love this dress is because of the colors, pastels and neutrals. My summer accessories are a simple necklace, some hoops and sunglasses are a must. What is your favorite thing to wear this summer?

Gingham Obsessed

Gingham is a hot trend this summer.  It is definitely one of my favorite patterns, whether it is blue, red or black gingham, it all looks good to me. I love how designers are constructing new pieces and not just the typical gingham button down. Don’t get me wrong,  I love a good button down as you can see below, but I am enjoying  some of the new styles like this great dress here, or this off the shoulder here, I need to add this skirt to my collection, and this romper is super cute.
I love gingham paired with leopard. Especially my favorite clutch (found here) or a leopard belt (here). Two bold prints make a statement or if you are like me you agree that leopard is a neutral. Check out some of the top gingham styles below.

Summer 2016 Trends

                                 One (top, bottom) | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight

Summer will be here sooner then you think. So if you are looking to add some of the top trending styles to your wardrobe, I have you covered.
There are many trending styles this summer. I have round up a few of my favorites. One trend that we saw a lot of in the fall, that has made its way to summer is the lace up flat (find an afford pair here). This flat can be worn with almost anything, like jeans to dresses, and even shorts. I will definitely be adding a pair to my shoe collection. Another trend I love is the bold stripe. Outfits with bold stripe patterns can hide or camouflage areas that you do not want to show or highlight. I am liking this dress here. Off the shoulder is also big this year. It is a great way to be a little sexy but not show too much. Find one of my favorite off the should tops here. One of the most stylish trends of the seasons is the exaggerated sleeve. It is very flowy, pretty and looks great on almost anyone. This dress (found here) with exaggerated sleeve would be idea for date night or hanging with the girls.

Frayed denim is a casual trend of the summer. Great for the weekend or after work. Find a pair of frayed denim shorts here. Another trend that is making a reappearance are gladiator sandals, so dust off your old ones or if you are looking to add a new pair to your collection try these here. Slipper mules are a trend that many seem to be loving lately. They are easy to wear and usually pretty comfortable. The ones here are pretty pricey but they look great. What trends will you be rocking this summer?

Swimsuit Ready

It is almost swimsuit and vacation season here in the US and if you are like me you think you need at least one new swimsuit each year. Which really means you have a drawer full of swimsuits already. #Guilty

Below I have rounded up some of the top trending swimsuits of the season. I am really loving this lace one piece here, this one shoulder two piece here, loving this halter here, and eyeing this ruffled swim suit here. I am definitely adding this scalloped suit (here) to my collection. What are your favorites of the season? Shop the rest of mine below. Hope you enjoy!
