Wearing Deep Colors During Summer

Today's outfit is filled with deeper colors, which seem much more suitable for fall. Truth is, I love deeper color-schemes much more than lighter colors, but since they're more acceptable during the fall and winter months, I don't even think to wear them during the spring and summer. 

This green and blue t-shirt dress from Natural Life is just perfect to me in every way. The colors, print, and structure of the dress makes for the ideal comfy go-to dress and it can be dressed either up or down. Today I kept my look casual but well-accessorized with layered jewelry from Elise M Collection and a big hat from Forever 21, but this dress would look so adorable dressed up with wedges and a clutch!


Wearing: Natural Life dress, T-Shirt & Jeans bag, Forever 21 hat + sandals, ZeroUV sunglasses, Elise M Collection necklace + bracelets, JORD wooden watch.


T-shirt dresses are the perfect lightweight summer dress, and my collection is growing and growing. Check out some of my other affordable favorites!

The Bigger The Better!

When it comes to dresses, heels, and hats, the saying is true: the bigger the better! Well structured dresses and hats such as the two I'm wearing here make fashion so much more artful and exciting. I feel so chic every time I wear a big dress such as this one from Chicwish, it just refreshes a vintage-inspired style and really stands out with it's print, structure, and especially it's colors!

With this outfit, I kept the jewelry simple yet still glam since the rest of my look was bold. My earrings from Rachel Marie Designs were oh so sparkly and paired wonderfully with my gold cuff from Fornash



Fancy floral dresses are perfect for summer parties! If you're looking for a chic bold floral, check out some of my fave inexpensive picks below:

Everyday Vacay Style

When you live in Florida, summertime calls for an everyday vacay style. No, I don't mean cargo shorts and flip flops, even though that's unfortunately the style that a lot of Floridians go for. I actually don't even own the first pair of flip flops. I used to, but in my mind I decided that they are repulsive and I realized that there are so many stylish alternatives to wearing them, such as flashy metallic slide ons that are more recently becoming a wardrobe necessity. 

I also usually think straw fedora-style hats are too touristy for me, but this summer they're a trend that's growing on me more and more. In my mind I'm planning to leave this state within the next few years, so I think I'm just embracing the Florida lifestyle until then. I've been going to the beach more than ever, and wearing outfits (such as this one) that typically aren't my style. 

For this easy look I'm wearing a light and fun pullover top from Natural Life along with a pair of white woven shorts I recently bought on sale from Forever 21. I wore some heeled sandals with this outfit, but it would also look good worn with white sneakers or those metallic slide ons I was talking about as well!


Wearing: Natural Life pullover top, Forever 21 woven shorts + straw hat, Modcloth sandals, JORD wooden watch, ZeroUV sunglasses, Vintage 70s crossbody bag, Elise M Collection bracelets.  


Looking for a pair of summer friendly sandals that are as comfy as they are chic? Here are some of my favorite picks for this season:

1. Lace-up sandals are perfect for achieving a comfy boho style!
2. These brown sandals add color and detail to your everyday flat sandal. 
3. Ditch the flip flops and go for a simple metallic toe sandal.
4. Style these versatile black sandals any way for any time of the day.
5. A jeweled pair of sandals can add a glam touch to any summer look!
