July Style

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

Now that the dog days of summer are upon us, my goal is to stay as cool as possible.  I'm always looking for a piece here or there to add to my summer wardrobe and have found a few things I love. Some of them are already in my closet and a few are on my radar and today I'm sharing them with you.  Here are my July style picks.

1.  Almost Bare -  I normally wear La Vie est Bellé, but now that the summer here I wanted something a little lighter.  A few weeks ago I picked up a bottle of Almost Bare by Bobbie Brown and fell in love with the scent! It's the perfect fragrance for summer with a clean, fresh smell that doesn't overwhelm, but sticks around the duration of the day.

2.  Chambray Tee -  I recently ordered this tee (40% off) and find myself reaching for it over and over.  I like to think of it as a replacement for my chambray shirt (now that it's too hot to wear it).  The flutter sleeves and eyelet detail keeps it feminine.  I wear it with these white shorts.

3.  Pink and orange shorts - I knew that I had to have these when I first saw them.  They're only $25!

4.  Swing tank dress - This dress is so comfy!  It can be dressed up with heels & a pretty necklace or thrown on with flip-flops and a topknot.  The shoulders are very flattering and the cut of the dress is very "forgiving" without being dumpy.  Bonus, it's only $15!

5.  Linen-cotton dress - I ordered this dress last weekend and cannot wait for it to arrive!  I'll pair it with chunky heels and my Kendra Scott cuff and fun earrings.

6.  Tassel necklace - I love how a tassel necklace jazzes up even the most simple outfit.  It's a great way to add something special to those summer clothes once they've lost their excitement ;).

7.  Chunky heels - Don't know what it is, but I am really loving chunky heels at the moment!  These would look great with dresses, white jeans, or even shorts with a flowy top.

8.  Eyelet peplum top - This top is 65% off right now!  It looks great with shorts or a pencil skirt and peplums are so flattering!  I might be ordering this one.

9.  Leopard thong sandals - I've been wearing these sandals since May and love them!  The sole has a little more support than the average sandal and the foot-bed material is super soft!

10.  Woven tote - It's no secret how much I love my beach bag, but dang, this one sure is cute!


  1. I'm loving that linen dress! Great summer ideas!
