My Summer Style Picks
Hello summer!😎 It's definitely feeling like summer here in the Midwest. Time for sundresses, sandals, and my favorite sunglasses. Though I confess, I don't wear shorts very often, no matter how hot it is. I still prefer my cropped boyfriend jeans or a skirt. Pictured above: Off the Shoulder Ruffle Spaghetti Strap Blouse
Anything off-the-shoulder is still super trendy, and I love it. A few other trends that we tend to see during spring; like pink, florals, and ruffles are all going well into summer this year. Another summer trend I've always loved is embroidery. It goes so well with the boho-chic look that will always be my favorite for summer.

And while pink is a top color trend this year; when it comes to the more boho-chic looks, it's all about bold primary colors. Reds, blues, and yellows especially look great with the pom and fringe trends. If you aren't sure about wearing the look head-to-toe, simply pair some bold boho earrings with a white summery top.
Now let's talk summer accessories. I love a great pair of sunglasses, and I can't live without my sandals during the summer. I have a tortoise-shell pair of sunnies that are so versatile. The fact that they have both shades of brown and black on them makes them go with just about any outfit. Then I have a pair of black cat-eye sunglasses, because, well, every lady should have a pair of those. They're so chic and instantly elevate any look.

I do love a straw tote, but when it comes to my summer bags, I use the same classic crossbody bags I use year-round. They just go with everything, and they're hands-free; so I can shop, sip on my coffee, and still hold my husband's hand.💕
My sandals may need an upgrade this summer. I've had the same gold-tone gladiator sandals for a few years, and they're finally looking a bit worn. I do have a great pair of brown braided sandals. Though I have to say, metallic is the way to go if you want sandals that will go with just about anything.

Finally, we can't talk about summer style without talking about swimwear, right? I have to say, I don't go swimming very often, but whenever I do, I'm all about the cover-up. There is nothing more chic than a beautiful one-piece, and a breezy summer dress is just the thing to layer over a swimsuit. And of course, I need one of those super cute summer hats.
