Who’s ready for summer? As much as I love long beach days, endless warm sun, and swaying palm trees I always find that dressing with style is much harder in the summer than in the fall/winter. Who agrees with me? You have less options, relatively no layering, you’re supposed to try and add color (but I only like black!), or wear white (which isn’t always the most flattering!) Ugh,so many dilemmas.
While yes, it’s quite easy to throw on jeans, shorts, a tee and flip flops; one probably wouldn’t consider that the chicest look haha. Don’t let me fool you- in the summer I wear jean shorts more days than not, but when I’m working I have to step it up.
A meeting, nice lunch, summer wedding, day at the yacht club… Nothing says summer chic like a cute jumper and hat. Not only is it easy to wear (one piece outfits are my best friend) it’s a great solution for a bad hair day! People say “Oh she looks so classy in her hat”, I’m really thinking “Nah I just didn’t want to wash my hair.” :)
Another quick fix to style up a summer outfit is with pinstripes. It’s a great summer go to print that always looks classic. Good thing to keep in mind when you’re stocking up on your summer basics!
