Some July Outfits!

 Friday, July 6, 2012

I cannot believe its already July! This summer has been flying by and I have been enjoying every minute of it. Summer is definitely my favorite season partly because my birthday takes place at the end of it and partly because the outfits are so cute.

I love the look of a casual summer outfit equipped with embellished sandals and cute detailed shorts. 

Today I just decided to whip up a couple cute summer looks.


Lilly Pulitzer party dress / Vince Camuto patent leather pumps / Satchel bag / Pearl jewelry
This first outfit is more or less what I wore to my family's Fathers Day dinner. I love the Lilly Pulitzer Aleesa dress so much that my background is actually the print! A neon satchel is the perfect accessory for the summer; its convenient and fun and for me a crossbody is the comfiest of bag straps. This look is perfect for a summer party or event that requires something a little more formal than shorts.


Vero Moda top / Vero Moda lace shorts, $17 / BP. tribal shoes / TarinaTarantino flower stud earrings / Kelly Wearstler antique brass jewelry / Lisa Freede leaf ring / Stila glitter eye makeup

Lace is quickly becoming one of the biggest trends for this summer and I cannot be happier. Lace detailing instantly makes an item of clothing look more expensive and when done right it can help the wearer look chic and fashion forward. A tie shirt is a little kick back to the old vintage style and I think paired with the lace shorts its an adorable look.

What is your Favorite Trend for the Summer? Lace Shorts? Tie Waisted Tops? Floral Sundresses? Comment below!

i love how the first outfit is classic, preppy chic and the second is a bit more trendy, but still timeless and classic!

i think my favorite summer trend would have to be maxi dresses and high/low hemlines. perfect for day to night wear!

Thanks for all the summer inspiration! Sometimes in the warm wather it's so hard to figure out how to look polished and put together because we are so hot:) But I agree with you that summer is the best!

Skinny jeans! I lost weight and I am rocking those pants at age 58. Woo Hooooo! Lace tops can be nice too, but seems I really have to shop around to find the perfect one.
