WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

The sunshine and warm weather are finally here to stay, and that means it’s time to ditch the layers and show a little more skin. It’s always easier to throw on some comfy shorts and a T-shirt and head out the door. I think I speak for everyone in saying that when I’m feeling lazy in the summer, I usually end up wearing athletic shorts and a T-shirt, and that’s an outfit that I need to leave in the past, along with my recreational soccer glory days. That’s why having a few staple sundresses in your closet is key for this season. This way you always have something comfortable to wear, without ditching your summer style.

This Fashionista spent her day on campus running errands and doing some occasional shopping, so she chose to wear something comfy and functional without having to sacrifice style. Her purple, floral dress complements her skin tone and hair color wonderfully. Floral pieces are ideal for summer too; they give off very laid back and happy vibes, just like the season itself. The floral print on this dress is not too busy, making it a great piece for adding a nice pop of color and detail to an ensemble. Slip-on leather sandals are very popular this season and are the perfect shoes for this outfit, making it neither too casual nor too dressy. Their flat heel makes them a nice go-to summer sandal that you can just throw on for any occasion.

Her letter “A” initial necklace adds a nice, personalized touch to this look. Choosing a simple jewelry piece was a smart move by this Fashionista, who wanted to keep this beautiful, floral dress the focal point of her outfit. I’ve said it before, and I will say it a million times, but I am absolutely in love with flash lens sunnies. I personally think you can never own too many pairs of sunglasses, and I have recently splurged on multiple shapes and colors of this awesome accessory. This dress is colorful enough on its own, so this Fashionista picked a pair of pink flash lens glasses that complement her floral frock nicely.

One Simple Change: Ditch the bright sunnies and trade your flat sandals for some cute, leather wedges to transform this look from daytime to night. To spice up your accessories, opt for some colorful earrings or bracelets that match your floral print.
