If you’re like me, then you know I absolutely thrive in the summertime. I mean, how can one not? Your ootd mostly calls for either a dress, shorts or skirts – no jacket, your skin gets tan and glowy, watermelon is in season, and you get all of those lovely benefits from the extra dose of Vitamin D. Having an epic summer is more than just the festivals you’ll be attending – it’s the little things too. Here are 8 things I do, and what I recommend you do, to have the best summer possible:
If there’s one thing I can’t wear enough of, it’s summer dresses. As much as you don’t need an explanation for them, I’ll tell you this: they’re effortless and look so good on. No need to spend 15 minutes trying to figure out what to wear for the day. All you have to do is throw on a dress with a pair of sandals or sneakers and you’re ready to conquer the day. Simple as that yet your outfit will look instantly put-together. You’ll be turning some heads girl! Needless to say, I’m so blessed to have summer dresses in my life.

It’s a given that modern, trendy pieces look pretty hanging in your closet, but having a go-to set of basics will be the foundation to your capsule wardrobe. Basics are versatile pieces you’ll love year after year and will get countless wear out of. They’re definitely the most bang for your buck. Even more, you can easily add trendy pieces with your basics for a more elevated look. Having a well-rounded group of basics will fulfill all of your styling needs.
What would a June be without a packed wedding schedule? The summer is almost here and that means your calendar of wedding dates that once seemed far away are coming up quickly. I absolutely love weddings. Being with friends and family, dancing, celebrating love (did I mention the open bar?) are something to look forward to every year! As much as I’m not going to be planning my own wedding anytime soon, I thrive being a wedding guest to the fullest.
Strutting into Memorial Day weekend like…this burst of summer is putting endless smiles on my face. The opportunity to wear anything other than denim jeans has me thriving. The first of many summer outfits, I decided to kick it off with a bang.
