Summertime is the best time. Just the mere fact of glowing skin and the radiant aroma of the air is amazing. Not only is it the perfect time to unwind, but if you’re a fashion lover like myself, it can be a great a time to experiment with new styles and trends that are outside of the box. Being in the comfort of one’s own environment is the perfect time to play with fashion. Summer can be a pivotal time to amp up your wardrobe and make your look ready to wow before you head back to school.
For me, I love to travel and embark on little adventures throughout the summer. I consistently find myself becoming inspired by the world around me. This not only broadens my general perspective of the world, but it enhances my fashion tastes and influences. I feel an urge to experiment and create, and my style becomes a true resemblance of the beauty of the season.
This look truly hones in on this idea. I have been eyeing this long maxi dress for weeks every time I went into Forever 21. Finally, I caved and bought it and have been dying to wear it ever since. To be honest, I have never been a huge fan of maxi dresses or skirts, but for some reason, I was drawn to this one. I think the print is captivating. The floral print evokes a summer vibe, but the colors are a bit more neutral, which I like. It also has a slit and a tie to give it a bit more dimension.
To enhance the summer essence of the dress, I opted for a block heel sandal and a fringe clutch. Both are a nice cognac brown. The choker is also a great accent piece to dress the outfit up. The look becomes more trendy with the layering. However, I am always careful not to add too much, as it can make an outfit look too enhanced or overdone.
This look is truly one that expresses my happiness for summer. It is safe to say I will be doing a lot of experimenting this summer. My style is about to get a whole new makeover. Not only am I excited to revamp my look, but I can’t wait to share my fashion journey with everyone. With that being said, use summer as a blank canvas and start experimenting. You never know where it might take you. Happy adventuring!
