Summer, Summer, Summertime….

It’s summertime, ya’ll… well almost, just 6 more days. School’s out (for those of you lucky enough to still be in school). Pools are open. And the sun is shining. So what does this mean in the world of fashion and beauty? It means you need to lighten up. No, not your mood. Even though that theoretically speaking should do the same with the sun, but I’m talking about your clothes and your makeup. It should all be lighter.

For your clothes:

You want to embrace light layers. Whether it be a light dress or flowy pants, the lighter the material the better you will feel. Like the Felicity & Coco Belted Jersey Tank Dress from Nordstrom for $68..

The Summer of White

It’s official, while it’s not quite Summer yet, the weather is bringing out the summery clothing and this Summer, it’s all about the White. Somehow we are supposed to embrace the bright colors of colored denim, neons, and at the same time, white. Not just a little white either – ALL white.

I love the all white look but it can be daunting. To me, it always looks better when you embrace simplicity. The more simple, the better!

If you’re not comfortable doing the all white look via a dress, you can do just white pieces. A skirt here, shorts there or pants. I know people get scared with skinny white denim. They always worry that it shows too much and to be honest, it can, but – you can work around this. Earlier this Spring, I purchased a pair of very white, slightly thin white skinnies from Joe’s Jeans. I love them! They’re just so damn versatile. They bring casual up-a-notch.

When I wear them I do have the ultimate problem that most people have, I have to know that I’m wearing them before picking out my underthings otherwise when I have my jeans on, I have pink underwear staring back at me in the mirror. It’s no bueno. I have a trick to solve this though and I shared this on another blogger’s comment section. I bought a pair of seamless nude colored boyshorts from Victoria’s Secret that I actually wear over whatever undies I chose that day. I started doing this for two reasons: 1) because they’re boyshorts they remove lines and cover you’re entire derriere – meaning, it doesn’t look like you’re wearing anything, even though you most certainly are and 2) I could just wear the boyshorts themselves, but with the way white jeans tend to be, the more coverage I have, the more comfortable I am. So, that’s my trick, you may find it silly, but it makes my white jean wearing days so easy!

Now that I’ve told you my story, enjoy some fresh, summery whites: (and, as always, if you want to purchase, just click the image)
