WHAT TO WEAR: Vacation

As the upcoming school year draws near, you may be trying to sneak off for one more summer get away. August is the perfect summer month for hitting the beach, lounging by the pool or just enjoying the nice weather outdoors. After all, in a few short months the leaves will change colors and suddenly summer will seem like a far away time. Take advantage of the sunshine and warm weather while you are still able to do so.

This Fashionista is wearing the perfect summer outfit to have while on vacation. First of all, I love the bright colors and patterns of the dress. The blues and pinks go very nicely with one another, and the two different patterns complement each other well. Additionally, the pleats in the dress are flattering and work well to separate the patterns. My favorite part of this look is how well the accessories work together to resemble each other. The sandals match the blues in the dress, while the bracelets all match one another and also draw out the blues from the dress. The dress is short, which is why I would recommend this outfit for vacation. Another thing this Fashionista did was layer the dress with a lacy bandeau. This makes the outfit a little bit more conservative while still maintaining the “festival” look. If you’re planning to make the most of what is left of this summer, be sure to take some fashion tips from this Fashionista!

One Simple Change: If the weather is hot when you return to school, be sure to throw a blue sweater in your backpack with you for those air-conditioned buildings. This look would be perfect for heading to class in a large lecture hall.
