STYLE GURU STYLE: Rachel Doninger

Hi there, Fashionistas! My name is Rachael Doninger and I’m studying Journalism with a minor in PR and Marketing at Indiana University.

The weather is finally heating up and so can your wardrobe. Summertime is the time for dresses, shorts, sandals and skirts. It’s time to put away those leggings and boots to put on something equally as comfortable.

My favorite part about this look is the dress. A T-shirt dress is perfect for dressing up or dressing down. The dress is so fun and easy, so that is perfect for getting ready fast or just running errands in the summer. This look would be easily transitioned from day-to-night wear, too. To make this dress perfect for going out at night, I would change the shoes to black wedges. This dress is perfect for a breezy summer day because it is a perfect flowy, casual dress. This exact dress is from American Eagle Outfitters.

The coin necklace puts the whole outfit in motion. With Coachella in the rearview mirror, gypsy-wear has been all the rage. Coin necklaces are a perfect way to dress up any outfit. This necklace could be implemented throughout your outfits this summer and even worn to your favorite music festival. A similar necklace to mine can be found here at Forever 21.

I absolutely love fringe purses. I think that they are great for any season and buying a neutral color bag will allow you to pair it with more outfit combinations. I recently purchased this exact bag from H&M.

My look is completed with silver Steve Madden sandals.
