Summer Style Tips

Today is the official start to summer.  So, I must say a grand welcome to lazy days, walks on the beach, more hot dogs and burgers, sangria, and warm, relaxing evenings. What do you look forward to most during these wonderful summer months?

In order to take in all of the events and activities you will be attending, here are a few things to be shopping for to keep your summer wardrobe up-to-date.  With the help of Instyle, Net-a-Porter and Nordstrom, all of the items shown are available for purchase so they too may hang in your closet.  Simply click on the link below the corresponding image to be taken to the check out line.  Enjoy shopping!

  1. Loving that bright pop of green from Vivienne W.!


  2. Mary Jo – I know, I’m debating, I might just have to do a bit of shopping myself. =) And the flats by Tory Burch – almost too tempting.

  3. Such great advice sweetie to show some leg and a peak of a shoulder. Summer brings open toed shoes, iced coffees and sunglasses. I am SO ready for the longest day of the year. Aren’t you? Wonderful post.

  4. Definitely show more leg! T’s were purchased yesterday (brand of choice this year? J Crew and Kenneth Cole) and neutral color bag is next on my list!

    Great, fun post! Have a great day!

  5. Oh, I love bits of synchronicity. I’m going on a big shopping jaunt tomorrow. One thing I wrote down on my wish list? Emerald green summer top. Why? I look great in it, of course.

  6. Loooove the Tory Burch picks! She’s my fav!

    Delightful Bitefuls

  7. Wonderful inspiration! I really want a neutral bag like the gorgeous one you show here… so many lovely ideas… a list is being made up 🙂

    Happy Summer to you 🙂
