Hello Hello Lovely Ladies~!
Summer is approaching fast with June finally here! The ugly 17-year-old cicadas are beginning to swarm around my house, but I’m not going to let it ruin my fashion fun! One thing I am trying to do this summer is really to become a bit more comfortable with my body, which includes wearing frilly tank tops and flats. So, here are some cute pieces that I feel are necessary to my Summer wardrobe!So, this summer is definitely the summer for me. I feel so comfortable in my skin finally that I want to try wearing more frills and I guess you can say my style is becoming a tad bit more Mori Girl (森ガール) inspired, so I’ve been really into neutrals lately and I think that it’s becoming a staple in my wardrobe…I guess what I’m trying to say is you’ll see a lot of Mori influences in these picks.So, this summer for me is all about being cute and simple. When I say cute and simple, I mean cute and simple patterns and light fabric. In Northern Virginia, we tend to have hot and humid weather during the summer, so light fabrics are necessary during the season. Personally, I am pretty in love with ModCloth’s Carefree Spirited Top ($37.99). It’s got a cute lace detail and it’s light enough for the hot weather. This can also be paired with a light black or pastel cardigan for those summer nights out, if it gets a tad chilly. If you experience this weather as well, you may want to stick with cotton and chiffon fabrics. These are light and are actually quite refreshing and cooling in the heat.
When it comes to cardigans, they are a year round piece. You can wear them in any weather and it gives a cute layered look to an outfit and they are available EVERYWHERE for relatively cheap prices. I am serious ladies… Anyways, for summer, try going with light, pastel, or neutral colors. Also, you could add a belt to emphasize the smallest part of your waist and make you look slimmer. Make sure that your cardigan is thin enough to breath in since it’s another layer in the heat. However, you could limit your cardigans to night time events and to keep you warm in the evening summer breeze.
I am loving flats this season. They are so comfortable and sometimes they look so cute with patterned socks…but it’s too hot for that, so sockless we go (or those no-show socks…). But they are truly a girl’s best friend so you can pair them with any jean, dress, skirt, etc. The ones pictured are shoes that I actually own and was featured in a previous post! In case you didn’t know, I got them at TJMaxx for $12.99 in black canvas. They are so comfy and bring a casual feel to an outfit! I also like wearing them with my polka dot socks, but that’s just me…but yes, I do think flats are necessary in a summer wardrobe and are useful for 90% of situations, I promise you.
Alright everyone, those are my simple summer fashion ideas. I am really trying to find my style this summer since it tends to change a lot, but Anthony has always told me I had a simple and “grandma” style; meaning I love bold prints and neutrals. So, I tend to stick with those…and polka dots. I think I have maybe too many polka dot and Disney items. Gosh, what is wrong with me?
ANYWAYS. Sorry for the delayed posting! In case you don’t know, I’ve been working out a lot lately however, I guess I overdid it one night and it took a huge toll on me: I ended up with a numb leg and feeling nauseous and sick these past few days. Along with that, LACK OF SLEEP. I am so tempted to do a sleep better post because I have been having so much trouble sleeping! I will go to bed at 10pm and I will literally do everything possible to sleep but it won’t happen until 4-5am. So, I guess that didn’t help with the working out situation and what not either. But, I’m doing my best to get better. (I must admit though, I’ve lost some weight and it’s made me so happy and motivated to work out and be healthier…)
With all of that said, I hope you all had an amazing week/weekend! Next weekend is Father’s Day and then the 18th is my Mother’s birthday and the day of the Postal Service concert that me and Anthony are going to! SO EXCITED! I will be doing an OOTD post that week, though it may be Wednesday when I post it. But, that’s pretty much all the news I have for you all! Have a wonderful week ahead, stay safe and blessed, and always remember to Live. Laugh. Smile 🙂
