Now that summer is upon us, I feel as if everyone around me is on the hunt for a summer job, and this Fashionista was spotted in a perfectly polished ensemble. Although she is wearing simple pieces, I love how it looks so dressed up with her bib pearl necklace and all-black heels.
Start with a sheer button-up with a cute collar. Things are really starting to heat up in Sacramento and I am a lover of all sheer tops that give my body some breathing room. Whenever you’re wearing a button-up, tuck it in to whatever you’re wearing on the bottom to look cleaner and more professional—whether it’s for an interview, lunch date or a girls’ night out! Pair any button-up with something high-waisted on bottom to enhance your waistline and really give your body that hour glass shape, or you can try to fake it, right?
I loved how she paired a nice pop of cobalt with a white peplum skirt. I think wearing white in the summer not only makes your wonderfully sun-kissed skin appear tanner, but it’s also exceptionally flattering on thinner body types. An easy way to jazz up a simple ensemble is adding a statement heel or necklace. I loved how this chunky pearl necklace really added an elegant essence to her outfit, making it look super chic and more formal.
If you’re not someone who likes wearing sky high pumps, try a simple black sandal or closed-toe flat. My two favorite places to shop for summer sandals are Steve Madden and Dolce Vita. Steve Madden always has classic styles, but each season they always tweak these classic styles into something tastefully funky to really make a statement with your feet! Lately I’ve been really drawn to Dolce Vita’s more electric and dynamic style that is very similar to the much more expensive brand, Jeffrey Campbell.
Just remember, pairing even your most basic pieces together can be remixed into something formal with ONE snazzy statement piece. I recently stumbled upon Samantha Wills’ jewelry line, an Australian brand, that has the perfect style for NorCal summers and festival season! I love her elephant bone designs, giving the jewelry an ethnic appeal and adding an edgy vibe to any outfit. Her collar necklaces are my absolute favorite statement pieces. I love pairing her rustic jewelry with something feminine in the summertime when I’m channeling my inner edgy bohemian.
