Favorite Summertime Looks!

There's absolutely nothing I love and think about more than long, hazy summer days. Living in New York, we unfortunately only get this kind of weather for a few months and trust me when I tell you I soak up every bit of sunshine that I can! There's so many things to do in the summer time and outfit planning in the summer is so much fun. This is the time of year that I love to plan outfits and mix and match colors and patterns. A few months ago, I shared a similar post detailing my favorite springtime looks and had a great response so I figured I would do something similar with summer outfits!

Here's some of my go-to outfit inspirations:


Running Errands:

Plaid shirt (under $10!!)// Statement earrings// Cuff bracelet// Urban Decay eye shadow// Essie nail polish// Reversible tote (under $50!)// Tory Burch sandals// Sunglasses// Kendra Scott ring// White denim shorts

Depending on the time of day I'm running my errands, I can sometimes still get away with wearing capris before it gets too hot - which I love! I could live in crop jeans. These looks could just as easily be worn for anything you do during the day! I try to change up my outfits as much as possible because I have way more summery outfits than I do summer days!


A day by the pool:

If you couldn't already tell, shopping days are my favorite! I try and make these days ones that it's raining or not great weather to do things outdoors! I always use a tote as my bag when I go shopping - even though it's an annoyance to carry around, I have a much greater chance of loosing a small wristlet or just my wallet! I also like to have a water with me and put smaller bags in if I don't want to carry them.


Out to dinner:

I go out to dinner a lot in the summer and depending on the restaurant, I love dressing up an outfit! I also love switching it up from using a tote or a cross-body - I love the way a dressed up shorts outfit looks with wedges and a cross-body and also think a cute sun dress with a larger tote looks gorgeous together! You can never have too many sundresses for summer; they're also very easy to dress down for a casual look or dress up for a dressier evening look!


Workout gear:

Duffle gym bag// VS tank// VS yoga capris// VS Pink water bottle// VSX sports bra// Fitbit Flex

If I'm going to work out, I'm gonna look cute doing it! I get any kind of workout gear from Lululemon and Victoria's Secret. I've been shopping mostly at VS for workout clothes lately because I love their PINK workout gear and their newer VSX line! These clothes are so comfy and you can easily mix and match these racerback tanks with shorts for the beach or the yogas for a day of relaxation. My FitBit is also an every day essential, especially for working out. I love wearing it all the time, but I never have liked the way it looks on my wrist if I'm going somewhere that I wear nicer jewelry to. Well thank god for Tory Burch as usual - her variations and styles that you can make your FitBit look adorable on your wrist!


Summer party/event:

Silk chiffon summer sundress// Rebecca Minkoff clutch// Essie "Picked Perfect"// Kendra Scott bracelet// Alex & Ani (1)// Alex & Ani (2)// Alex & Ani (3)// Alex & Ani (4)// Pearl stud earrings// Lace wedges// Michael Kors watch

Summer is also a time with lots of parties, events and weddings that you need cute outfits for! Shift dresses are so in style now and there's so many cute ones in different colors and patterns that are perfect for summer events. I also love a good arm party as you can tell with all of my bracelet picks!!




What's your favorite outfit for the summer?
