The Five S’s of Summer

Hey dolls ! I am here with the top 5 things a fashionista just can’t do without for the summer. Let’s get right to it !

The Sunnies

Sunnies are the ultimate summer accessory! They shield your eyes from the blinding rays while making you look glam. Pick up a pair in a bright, fun color, cool shape or funky print, or go for the classic-style shade. Whatever suits your style!

The Summer Dress

Dresses are ideal for summer time, especially the one with a flirty cut and tropical-esque floral print like the one above. Whether mini, midi, or maxi, when selecting a summer dress, make sure it is flattering to your figure and has breathable material and cut for the warm weather. The floral print blouson dress above is from Forever 21 and costs $24.80.

The Swim Wear

C’mon, its summer! You gotta have a little fun in the sun, and that usually involves getting wet. Whether for a trip to the beach, or the neighborhood pool, you gotta be ready to pull out your swimsuit at a moments notice. There is a vast variety of cute popular swimsuit cuts for Summer 2012. From the retro cut to the one shoulder, be sure to pick the swimsuit that will be most flattering to your body type. It’s the best way to ensure you will be confident and avoid embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions.

The Shorts

Who wears short shorts? We wear shorts! Its summer, its hot, and you can’t wear pants all the time. Embrace the heat with shorts. You can wear basic denim cut-offs or switch it up some shorts with a quirky print. The ones above are shorts by The Pretty Junk from Asos Marketplace & cost $83.60.

The Sandals

Sandals are a definite summer staple. Feel free to show off that fresh pedi in some strappy open-toed kicks! My advice is to stock up on as many pairs as you can because they are the one thing you will probably wear everyday of the summer, or close to.  This pair is from Forever 21 and is only $12.80!

Until Next Time!

OOTN: Cobalt, Black, & Kickback

Hola chicas (and chicos if your reading, shoutout to you) ! I’m here with an Outfit of the Night for you guys. It was yesterday, June 8th and I guess I was in a really striped-mood yesterday (given what i was wearing earlier that day). The occasion was a kickback/house party of sorts, for a friend of mines birthday. I wanted to look spruced up, but not overly dressy or clubby to be just sitting in someone’s house. So this is what I chose…

Striped Dress (worn as a top): Forever 21 – $19.80

Chain Necklace: Forever 21 – $7.80

Ring: Forever 21 – $6.80

Belt: Forever 21 – $8.80

Bubble Skirt: Forever 21 – $11.80

Sandals: Don’t remember – $9

Purse: Charlotte Russe – $9

(whoa, just realized exactly how much of this outfit came from forever 21, yowzers!)

This look could have been made more downtown-club scene ready by adding heels, wearing the strapless top as the dress it really is, or wearing a bold lip. However, for the type of event I was attending, I feel like this combination was just right.

What do you guys think? Like it? Hate it? Let me know in the comments below.

Until Next Time!
