WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

Now that school is officially out, it is time to kick back, relax and enjoy the weather! As a college student, summer is filled with dentist appointments, catching up with old friends and spending time with the family. Summer is also the primetime to step up your Instagram game by wearing cute outfits and documenting all of the fun adventures that take place. I decided to feature this Fashionista because of her effortless, cool style that corresponded well with the 90-degree weather.

In Minnesota, summers can get really humid fast, which is why wearing a dress is an easy way to look cute and stay cool. Dresses are the key to looking put together in the summer, because all you have to do is add a fun pair of shoes, some jewelry or a handbag and you are out the door! The outfit takes five minutes to put together, but looks like an outfit that took much longer.

Army green has been a very trendy color for a while now, but is usually seen in the fall. I love how this Fashionista incorporated a previously trendy color into a new season by pairing the dress with neutral sandals and a bright white handbag. Her outfit is casual enough to run errands in and can be dressed up with a change of shoes! One of my favorite accessories in this Fashionista’s outfit is her white S’well water bottle. The water bottle seems to be the “it” product of the summer because of the wide range of colors, and ability to keep water cold. It is a very fashionable way to stay hydrated this summer! Stay cool and stay hydrated Fashionistas/os!

One Simple Change: One easy adjustment to this outfit that can convert this summer look into a fall look is adding a neutral (faux) leather jacket. This will keep you warm as the temperature starts to drop and won’t break the bank!
