Summer Love

Hey there my lovely’s!

Summer, In my opinion, is the best time of the year. You get to hang out with your friends, wear cute outfits, go to the beach, ride bike, have bonfires, and of course if you’re single it’s the perfect time to have a little summer fling! My favorite summer activity is spending time at the lake, whether its tanning, boating, or swimming I enjoy every second of it. I feel like summer is the time that you get to be whoever you want to be, you get to discover who you are and what you love about yourself. You get to wear whatever you want and look cute! Since I live in Minnesota our winters are freezing and my winter wardrobe mostly consist of jeans, boots and chunky sweaters!  Not that you can’t make that cute but I'd rather wear a pretty sun dress with wedges than jeans, Uggs, and a Northface. I definitely adore summer and all the fashion choices that come with it. I feel that so far this summer we have had way more cute trends compared to past summers. I love high-low anything, maxi dresses, high wasted shorts, chiffon blouses, bright colored jeans and tops, jean vests with studs and of course any statement jewelry.  I really like the fact that’s it totally acceptable to mix all the summer trends together and still look totally cute! For example, I love the look of a high low chiffon top, with some studded high waisted shorts. I think an outfit like that gives a great balance of feminine and edgy without over doing any of the pieces and they blend very well together!  I also love paring up colored denim with statement jewelry! It’s so easy to dress up or down and still be comfortable. I definitely love the idea that you don’t have to sacrifice cuteness for comfortability, especially in the summer! This morning I was really tired and after my workout I had to get dressed quickly and make it to work. So I ended up wearing some minty blue skinnies, with a simple stripped top a statement necklace and some flats!  It was super easy to put together and it’s super comfy! Not to mention it was very inexpensive and makes a cute summer outfit.  Another summer trend that I love and has actually been around for a while now are maxi dresses but this summer they seem cuter then ever! I’m especially loving the chiffon maxi dresses and skirts that are see-through, pleated, and have the little slip under them. I think they are the perfect mix of sexy and sophisticated.  I haven’t purchased one yet but I am definitely going to get on that. Also, I think it’s important to purchase all your summer must haves without breaking the bank just because something may be huge this summer doesn’t mean that it will be next summer! For a lot of my summer pieces I go to forever 21 , H&M, and Urban Outfitters. You don’t have to break the bank. It doesn’t matter to me if I only get to wear my colored jeans or high waisted shorts for only one summer because I only ended up paying around $20.00 for them!  So if you’re looking for trends that you know might not stay around for too long I definitely recommend shopping at those stores.

What are you summer must haves? Are there any trends that you are especially loving this summer?! I would love to know about them, and how you like wearing them. I could always use ideas on how to style pieces and make my wardrobe go a long way! I hope you guys are enjoying your summer so far
