My Go-To Summer Style

IMG_4960
During the summer, I want to be comfortable yet chic while also trying to stay cool — a challenging task in steamy Charleston. It’s also crucial to curate outfits that can easily transition from work (since I’m officially old and don’t have summer vacations anymore) to happy hour and beyond. I’ve noticed a pattern in my summer wardrobe selections that I’ve decided is my “go-to summer style” — meaning I pretty much wear different variations of the same outfit every day. This outfit combination, or algorithm if you will (#math), creates a quick & easy outfit every time.

I start out with a comfy maxi dress (bonus points if it’s printed), then throw on a chambray shirt for the work day. To finish off the look, I slip on some wedges or flats, my go-to jewelry, simple sunglasses, and a classic clutch or crossbody bag. In this example, I chose a colorful patterned maxi, a tied chambray top, tan wedges, gold jewelry, aviators, and my trusty gold clutch. For a little bit of a fun edge, I went with my shark tooth studs, green mirrored aviators, and lavender nails. Lastly, I did a quick dutch braid to keep my hair out of my face which spiced up the look even more. Check out my summer style below!IMG_4917
