It is sad to say that we are nearing the end of the summer season. Despite this fact I will be holding on to it as long as possible. The color and shape of this dress help remind me that we still have a few more months of summer. I have really been liking dresses with a higher neckline  lately, and  although the bottom is loose and flowy the top still has some figure.  The bright color, the flower print and fit of the dress make it fun and say that summer is still around for a little while longer!

There is nothing better than a flowy shirt in the summer time to keep you cool. Recently The Loft had a 50% off sale and I scored big! I love the neckline on this because it looks like a typical scoop neck on the front and has a higher neck on the back. The pattern is very unique, almost a mix between a snake skin print and plaid. It also sinks into the background and lets the light blue stand out if you are far enough away from the viewer. Wearing a skinnier pant and having your hair back allows the shirt to be center stage.

Summer Hair Style

 

The hot summer weather has finally hit in New England. Hair is beautiful, unique, and does not help to cool you down during a scorcher. For those of you who have not yet mastered the art of French braiding, or at least the small French braid that everyone seems to uses as a headband, try this twist. Its similar to braiding, however, it is much easier.

Starting at your part, grab a bit of hair and bring it about an inch behind your hairline.

Next, grab the hair that is just underneath it and fold it over the top of the previous section of hair.

Using the two original strands repeat this process of folding over while adding additional hair into the twist as you move towards the back of your head…

or towards the back of your head for a low bun.

This hair style adds a fun twist and keeps your hair out of your face!

I love Harem pants. The fact that you can dress them up and look very put together while being comfortable is awesome! Who doesn’t want to feel like you are wearing pajamas but you are really looking chic? I kept my look simple with solid colors and choose some flashy jewelry and blue eyeliner to help enhance the look.

It is inevitable that in the summer months we will all need to walk a line between hot summer days and cool breezy nights. Staying with a lighter color pallet when layering up will help to stay in the summer season and make a smooth transition from day to night.

I have been hearing more and more about choker necklaces and dark lipsticks making coming back and going mainstream. I decided to give it a try my self! The purple lipstick, to me, is the outstanding part of this outfit, which is why I paired it with a simpler necklace and neutral colors. This dress is a great comfortable one for hot summer nights because it is a little loose with some fun sleeves. Find a neutral dress in your closet and try out a fun choker necklaces and dark lipstick!

At times you just want to be comfortable. A solid color top with pants that can be dressed up or dressed down is a great place to start! The white tank top with these loose blue pants is my way to look nice while staying semi cool in the summer heat that is yet to come. Add a fun hat to the look and you will stand out from the rest!
