Outfit 1

There’s nothing I love more than wearing a pretty dress to any occasion!  I absolutely adore this cobalt blue lace dress, and the nude detailing underneath is such a perfect addition!  I paired this dress with my Kate Spade Tote, my J Crew necklace, and swapped out my nude heels for my favorite gold Tory Burch sandals!  I think this outfit is especially perfect for a brunch/lunch date with friends, date night, or for a day in the city!

Alyssa (Somewhere Between Vogue & Van Gogh) wore the most adorable outfit, pairing a classic gray tank with some olive green shorts!  She also added a pop of red/brown with her scrappy sandals, and tied the color in with her tote!  I absolutely loved her simple layered gold necklaces, they definitely tied the entire look together!

Tips & Inspiration!

Summer fashion is all about fringe, pom pom details, pops of color, distressed denim, mule sandals, and the classic light blue cotton top and off-the-shoulder top!  I believe any of these pieces will add so much to your look, and are perfect for this summer’s trends!  Also, when it comes to styling, stick to basic pieces!  A classic pair of light wash or white skinny jeans, basic tees and tanks, and strappy sandals are always a go-to classic summer style!  Basic pieces are also really easy to pair with anything, so adding a cute pair of pom pom sandals or a colorful tote will really elevate your outfit without you spending extra money!

I hope you all enjoyed my summer styling post featuring my best friend Alyssa, and make sure you follow her blog Somewhere Between Vogue & Van Gogh!  She is leaving for France tomorrow, so definitely check out her posts and keep up on her adventures (and incredible style)!  I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday, and I hope the rest of your week is filled with lots of love and good vibes!
