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!

Bathing Suit Season

Before you ask, yes, I have a large sunburn on my arm. We keep it real at Calla Lynne – now on to the point of this post. The end of the summer is the best time to purchase a new bathing suit. Everything is starting to go on sale. This allows for two things to happen 1) The suits you thought were out of your price range are now right back within it. 2) You can be more adventurous and try a style that you may not have normally! This post is about the latter.

I typically wouldn’t have pictured myself in this bathing suit. However, I am very excited that I was able to try a plunging neckline. Combined with the timelessness of the color black, this suit is just the right mix of old and new. The gold neckpiece at the top holding up the suit adds an elegant accent.

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!

Concert Style

A concert is the perfect place to see creative fashion choices. My first concert of the summer season was, of course, Beyoncé’s Formation tour. Everyone I attended the concert with has his or her own individual style that is amazing and beautiful! Find inspiration for your next event this summer with a snapshot of the outfit choices and a personal description from each wearer.

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.

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!
