Happy Summer Solstice, mermaids! It's the official beginning to three months of sun, sand, and popsicles! And while it's no secret that I prefer cooler weather and staying out of the sun, I sure do love the peace of mind that comes with long days, crisp nights, and lasting memories made with friends and family. It's like time actually manages to slow down during this time of the year... and that's always a welcome feeling.
So, in honor of the first day of Summer, I thought it'd be fun to put together a style guide with this year's hottest trends -- because, let's be honest... 2017 has brought us some cuuuuute clothes! Here are a few of my favs:
Off-the-shoulder tops and dresses are everywhere right now, and while I love the trend, I'm also really picky about it. I mean, if I'm going to wear a strapless bra for the day, it needs to be worth it, #amiright. What's key for me is the extra layer of fabric over the bust. It looks cute and it hides the weird "pocket" that forms in between your bra -- win, win!
There are three pretty ones in the shop, all with the extra fabric over the bust:
Tassels + Stripes Top (one medium left!)
The white tee is a classic summer staple, and combined with this year's relaxed peplum cut... yes. Just, yes.
COMFY JUMPERS + ROMPERS
I'm a big fan of most jumpsuits, but I especially love this comfy one. Not only is it a whole outfit for under $50, but the straps and waist are adjustable, it's relatively easy to style, and you'll look dressy and chic without sacrificing comfort. Plus, olive is always 👌 in my book!
The shop also has two tank rompers - both casual, with black tops and print bottoms!
My favorite Summer prints this year are: floral (always), desert, and tropical. But again, I tend to be picky and only stock the ones that I think are above and beyond cute! A girl's gotta have standards, you know? 😉 So far, our most popular prints have been the Amelia/Alexa, Molly/Cheyenne, and the cactus!
MIDI SKIRTS + LACE
High-waisted midi skirts have been my go-to lately. The length makes them dressy, so I just grab a basic tee and sandals, put my hair in a top knot, and I'm out the door! Looking put-together (and cute!) with minimal effort... priceless.
Lace is going to be huge again this year, so I stocked two gorgeous lace midis in the shop. Perfect for work and special occasions!
Lastly, bodysuits. If you read my last post, you know exactly how I feel about them. Spoiler: they're amazing. Not only did I like the outfits I put together, but I felt great in them... exactly how we should feel in our clothes!
Are you loving this season's style trends as much as I am?! Let me know your favorites, and what else you would like to see in the shop!
Thanks for reading! xo, Jess
