“Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.”— Russell Baker
The summer heat has finally arrived! Style has a way of rejuvenating in the summer season by blooming after being bundled up all winter. It is like a celebration for me. I always look forward to summer fashion. Summer fashion has an ease and freedom to it. Summer is a time to relax and enjoy yourself, I feel that my style will reflect that. I love to put together interesting prints and pops of color, which are exciting aspects of summer fashion for me. I also love the lightweight fabrics that make an outfit breathable and fun. I chose to wear a printed skirt that my best friend got for me in South Africa — the detailing of the print is breathtaking. A maxi skirt is a great piece for the summer season. It is comfortable while also having an air of elegance.
I wore one of my favorite tank tops for this summer STYLE GURU BIO post. I got this Tweety Bird tank top at a thrift shop. When I went to see where it was made, I found out that it was handsewn out of bedding fabric! I thought it was such an interesting new aspect of the shirt that I had to have it, and now it is one of my favorites. The top has an essence of quirky, bold, almost sass, and I love that about it. I think it is important to have your own character and attitude in your style. I chose to wear my pair of Nike Dunk iD shoes that I made online, and my bracelet that spells out fierce in gold letters. I love fashions that are a little in your face.
For accessories, I chose my red headband and my new white heart sunglasses, which are other examples of pieces that have character and are the perfect fun pieces for the summertime. I hope all of you Fashionistos and Fashionistas have an amazing summer. Enjoy yourself, your friends and family, and also your fashion.
