Summer Loving

Hello, Darlings!

After the craziness of last summer, this summer has been laid back. I have been spending my time at the beach being lazy, reading books, enjoying time with family and friends. As for summer fashion, comfy has been the key word of the day

Kimono Crazy

Kimonos are a girl’s best friend because not only do they add a pop of color but they can serve as lightweight jackets for chilly evenings or double as bathing suit cover ups.

One of my favorite necklaces Silpada’s Drops Of The Ocean is the perfect accessory to give this look a finishing touch

Tropical Print Maxi Dresses

When you love something, buy it in every color! This is the same Gibson X Hi Sugarplum maxi dress but this time in Pink Fern print (also bought black)

Summer Sweaters

In the South, summer is our coolest month. Not from the outside heat, but from our a/c units going full blast. So for inside comfort and evenings at the beach, a summer sweater can come in handy. These sweaters are from Wooden Ships By Paolo Buendia.

Resort Wear For Everyday Living

Living in the South and going back and forth from my beach house, summer wardrobe can go from March to November. Resort wear becomes everyday wear. I have added to my summer wardrobe collection with some new pieces from Escapada Living. This company specializes in bright prints and comfortable material that is perfect for vacations. I found that Escapada Living tops run large so size down.

This super cute Pink Jungle Print off the shoulder top is fun and flirty. Just my style!

I am a “summer girl” and I love the bright bold prints of summer. Even my active wear is bright and colorful. It makes me smile.

Hope you are having a wonderful, fun-filled summer. With the heat of the summer barring down on us, I will be spending some of my free time organizing my kitchen. Trying to declutter and embrace the empty nest lifestyle.

I am posting lots of fashion on Instagram and Facebook.
