Summer is truly here. Living in SoCal, it's usually always warm but during these summer days, especially where I live, it can get up to the 100's and higher. It can be a challenge sometimes to dress up and go outside because you just want to curl up with the air conditioner and do nothing. I've had the opportunity to do quite a bit of shopping these last few weeks because my sister is in town and we've been searching for a dress for a wedding she is attending. It's been fun to play in the dressing room and pick up a few amazing pieces for the upcoming summer days. I've been playing around with lots of colors and patterns. This year is truly the year for "Tangerine" and I have quite a few pieces in my wardrobe from the dress to the shoes and handbags.
As summer approaches, the colors are basically staying the same except that you'll start to see more neons and floral prints. Parachute or harem pants and loose tee or tank tops are also fun and free for this warm heat we'll have. Pair a patterned or plain black parachute or harem pants with an oversized plain white v-neck slightly tucked in with your hair pulled up. You can wear a pair of thin strappy sandal or some espadrilles to complete the look. A cross over bag or a medium size handbag will complete the whole ensemble.
Neon green and pink are also very hot this summer. Wear a bright accent color with your accessories such as shoes, clutches or earrings to bangles or nail polish. Have fun with the summer heat but dress cool, hip and trendy as well.
