The Perfect Summer Look

scf11web

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!

  25. This jumpsuit is adorable! And yes, I couldn´t agree more. I always feel so limited during the summer months. What can I possibly wear besides cut-offs and a tank that looks cute AND is extremely breathable?

    I totally agree! Much harder to look put together in the summer. And harder to cover up my trouble spots! But I live for a cute hat and sandals.

  41. Love this look so much! It’s funny because people seem more drawn to people with hats, like they’re more interesting because they have the confidence to wear one. At least that’s how I feel when I wear one! Everyone will comment on it, it’s funny. Anyways, gorgeous as always!
