Summers in California is a blessing, but also a curse. I say this because it’s so darn hot that it’s almost impossible to get yourself to get ready in the mornings! In this heat, I’ve found that simplicity is key. Minimal makeup, accessories and a cute dress you can throw on: equals my perfect equation for an effortless summer look. There is nothing I love more than seeing a Fashionista wearing pieces confidently and naturally.

This lovely Fashionista epitomizes the ideal summer starlight. Sporting her beautiful romper from Forever 21, she effortlessly captures the ideal feminine look. To add detail to her staple piece, she is wearing Francesca’s rings and Steve Madden sandals. By wearing simple pieces, her accessories highlight her own unique style. The details of both pieces match perfectly, which add more distinctive features to this simple black romper. For a pop of summer color, she sports her kate spade new york wallet—perfect for carrying around for a summer day with the girls. Her outfit is complimented by her gorgeous but effortless beach waves. Beautiful yet simple; this Fashionista is ready to beat the heat in style!

One Simple Change: Finished with your day, but planning for a night out? Sport the same staple piece but sub the sandals for wedges for a more sophisticated and formal look. Don’t be afraid to alter your accessories with a staple piece like a romper. It’s so versatile, that it can easily turn from a day look to a night out.
