STYLE GURU STYLE: Weekend Getaway

The halterneck style is a staple in my wardrobe. Whether brought to life in the form of a tank top or a dress, it is flattering and versatile, especially as we brace for the summer months ahead. Delivered in a denim fabric and I was sold (with a price tag under $25, who wouldn’t?).

I ventured to a small beach town this past weekend, and knew this was the perfect ensemble for the occasion. The dress cinches a little bit above the waist, leaving me room for the copious amounts of ice cream and french fries I may have consumed in the last 48 hours. Since the dress itself does not have a pattern or elaborate details, I was able to add a personal touch through my dainty accessories. Although chokers have been all the rage this past year, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m still not over the trend. Layered chokers are delicate but feminine. This pale pink ribbon that I tied from the ends of the silver choker adds a youthful, playful element to this outfit, reminiscent of my days in the elementary school playground.

Beyond these accessories, you can never go wrong with a light nylon handbag. These adjustable straps make this the perfect weekender bag, whether you are out for brunch with your friends or grabbing a cup of coffee on your way to a rad photo shoot. I’ve drawn my inspiration from Pop & Suki’s small handbags and various strap options. Although this one isn’t customizable, it’s the perfect size to carry my weekend go-tos in. These sandals are a recent favorite. Although I purchased them last summer, I’ve been picking up on the lace-up sandal trend, and they are the perfect item to put on your packing list for a weekend getaway.

With summer vacation season upon us, these essentials will provide you with the “Instagrammable” worthy moment at an arm’s reach.
