Good Morning Lovelies!
Hope everyone is having a great week so far. I am enjoying the warm weather so much!
One of the things I am trying to do more of is have a consistency of long and short pieces in my outfits. I find that I am great when it comes to picking out pieces for a hot summer as well as during the winter but the fall/spring are always more of a challenge for me. Its that in between, sometimes hot, sometimes cold, both in one day kinda weather that can get pretty confusing. The trick is to wear one long piece with one short piece to keep you comfortable throughout the day. This spring, for me, is mixing shorts with long sleeve tops. and the fall incorporates more pant options.
Even though its mid June and tomorrow is the official first day of summer, we have had more colder days than hot this season. It is said that should change soon but either way, a balance in your clothes makes for great options of summer outfits if you’re spending most of your day indoors!
This outfit is completely Vineyard Vines. I got this outfit last summer. I popped into VV and saw all the girls wearing something similar and I had to have this color combination. I thought an outfit like this was a staple for the spring and summertime on colder days/nights but then as the summer came and went, I never reached for it in my closet. I was lazy. It is so easy to just throw on a dress or romper and some sandals and go. An outfit like this takes more planning. The details of your day, whether or not your spending your day mostly outside or not determines if you can wear an outfit like this. This season I tried to be more organized when it came to my spring outfits. Sure enough, I reached for it!
An oxford button down and some shorts are perfect as a classic outfit in your wardrobe. It has a timeless look that can be recreated in various different color and brand combinations!
I had to pop on here to tell you that Lilly Pulitzer’s pop up print for the summer is Lobstah Roll. I couldn’t be more excited. As soon as I got the news I ran to my local Lilly store and picked up the Captain Popover. I wasn’t aware of Lilly when they had their most popular prints a while back so I have been so lucky to get such great luck finding items I love from their pop up prints collections throughout the past few years.
I instantly ran home to style an outfit with my new piece of Lilly. I paired the popover with my pink Lilly buttercup shorts (similar: here) and some pink and gold Jacks. Such a simple outfit yet SO much fun to wear!! I know this print is gonna go fast so be sure to check out the collection before its gone.
I am a firm believer in everything the company Lilly Pulitzer stands for. Most of my closet is Lilly because I was so blessed to get the opportunity to work there two years back. The colors just make every outfit look happy and fun. Winter or summer, Lilly is a staple in my closet.
I love the spring and summer time because I can just throw on a dress, some cute sandals to go with it and I am out the door. Dresses are my go-to in the warmer months, I just feel more comfortable in them.
I got this dress from J.Crew Factory last summer. Their shift dresses are always super cute and I love stripes so when I saw this one I had to have it. I pulled it out again this summer when I got this crossbody bag from Talbots. This bag is one of the cutest straw bags I have ever seen. They are such a trend this season and I was happy about that because I already had a few but I was so excited to add this one to my closet. I love the pop of color from the leather straps but the aspect of the bag that sold me was the gingham interior! It just seemed as though it was a match made in heaven.
An outfit like this is so versatile, you can wear it with flat sandals for a casual day or some wedges if you are heading into the office. I accessorized with some pearl drop earrings from bauble bar. These earrings are heavy the first time you wear them but like a shoe, once you break them in they don’t bother you anymore. I love these earrings. The drop earrings are one of my favorite trends this summer because I feel like they are such a staple piece that pulls any outfit together. Pearls are a staple of mine already so these were absolutely darling. I am so happy with them!
