Colorful Summer Fashion
Summer is one of my favorite months only because all the kids are home and we can spend time together + go on wonderful vacations. I also get excited about wearing bright colorful dresses + outfits and accessorizing with statement earrings. That has always been so much fun for me. During the year, typically, I don’t dress up all the time – except I do make it a point to take it up a few notches for date night with Todd, lol.
Summer in Florida
When I think about summer I get all the warm + fuzzies inside and it makes me crave it so badly towards the end of March. I have to say living in Florida I get a little spoiled because the summer temps start around March. By the end of summer, I have to be honest and say that I do look forward to the cooler temps fall brings along. One thing I can say is that even though we do have brutal summers once fall + winter hits our evenings are the most magical thing on earth.
Summer Closet Staples
I love preparing my seasonal wardrobes a month early. Lately, as I am starting to prepare for summer I have stumbled on so many cute pieces. I don’t see too many colorful ones this year, unfortunately, but that’s okay. I wanted to take this post to share what I have found and also give you some tips on how to style them. I have a natural love for fashion so this comes easy to me and you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to create a new seasonal wardrobe. One thing I do recommend is that you do have your handful of closet staples (summer edition)…which consist of basic plain t-shirts, already worn-in cut-off shorts, midi dress, maxi dress, a flattering swimsuit, sandals + flip flops.
Summer Outfit Inspiration
This year is all about comfort for me and if it has a lot of colors that’s totally cool with me. I feel as I get older I don’t want to be in tight-fitting clothes anymore. I want to be able to bend over and not worry my panties are going to show or be able to eat dinner and not feel like my love handles are bulging out. I know these things are weird to take into consideration but that’s where I’m at in life right now. I guess this is all part of evolving because two years ago I don’t think I’d be saying this, lol. I remember wearing bodycon dresses to a happy hour all the time…I laugh at myself all the time.
