Back to the Basics


Sometimes all of the prints and colors out there can become overwhelming, and that's when you just have to get back to the basics. A simple chambray skirt, striped crop top, black pumps and a giant black hat and bag to match are just one modern way of styling an outfit around basic pieces. Not to mention, it's also another way of trying to stay cool while still looking stylish, which is my main goal each summer.

Chambray skirts are a cool and comfortable summer alternative to the uncomfortable high-waisted shorts. Here are some of my favorite chambray picks:

1. This striped, rustic-chic button-down skirt is great for sunny summer adventures!
2. A light-wash chambray fit-and-flare skirt looks cute with any crop top.
3. Give you business attire a fun twist with a chambray pencil skirt

Psychadelic Prints and Summer Knits


This summer I've been enjoying a mix of both whites and tropical colors/prints! This crochet detailed knit top from Kersh really helped emphasize these fun sheer palazzo pants from Others Follow. 

For accessories, I'm wearing something I've been wearing with every outfit a lot lately, my Alex and Ani bracelets. These bracelets are such a fabulous way express yourself and wear memories or even favorite interests on your arm. There are so many lovely bracelets to choose from, but my three represent me perfectly. The first one, my initial "C", is a must have for every girl, because an initialed Alex and Ani bracelet is cute, perfectly customized, and it never goes out of style. My second bracelet features an NYC charm with an outline of the skyline, and looking at it reminds me of my dreams and to never stop working towards my goals. My third bracelet is an antique themed bracelet with white beads, and it reminds me of my love for vintage and old things. They all together look beautiful on my wrist each day and will never go out of style!

Colorful breezy pants are a perfect summer go-to. They look good with t-shirts, knits, or even a blouse. Here are some of my other favorites in colorful pants!

1. This abstract pair of colorful palazzos are similar to the ones I'm wearing today!
2. I love this pair from Liz Claiborne, they feature a pretty palm print and are only $20!
3. Bold is surely a good word to describe these abstract and floral printed pants... so cute!

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!

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

1. This black trapeze dress is the perfect summer LBD! 
2. The detail in this layered back olive green t-shirt dress is so chic!
3. Casual-meets-classic feminine chic with this scalloped hem dress!
