Happy first day of summer! Summer is officially here and I already know I'm going to be gravitating towards dresses and skirts all season long! My legs can't be bothered by denim in this smoldering Southern California heat. Today alone is going be ninety-three degrees. SO Hot! Since I love living in skirts and dresses, I wanted to share how I like to style a good summer dress. I also enlisted the help of blogger babe, Kris, from Mom Jeans & Mimosas to share her favorite way to style a skirt for summer.
When styling a pretty summer dress I like to follow three steps for a flawless execution. The first step is of course, finding the perfect dress. You know I love a good off the shoulder dress but this one shoulder was incredibly so much more comfier to wear! Have you tried one shoulder pieces? Second, find shoes that compliment your dress. I cannot tell you how much I love these little brown strappy sandals I got earlier this year! They work with everything from dresses to skirts, shorts and even denim! Next are your accessories, including handbag, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and sunglasses. Today, I opted for a pair of intricate gold Kendra Scott earrings that I received in my monthly Rocksbox, aren't they pretty? (You can get your first month of Rocksbox free by using code forallthingsprettyxoxo) Since I wore a statement earring, I decided to go without a necklace. It's true when they say less is more!! One dainty gold bangle on each arm, my current favorite straw handbag, and my go-to pair of Karen Walker sunglasses completes my look. See, I told you that styling a dress is easy! Follow these three steps this summer for a perfect outfit every time!
When it comes to styling a skirt for summer, Kris is all about denim. My opinion? It's ultra cute and you can't go wrong! She wore hers with distressed hem detail and paired it with a cool-girl rose embroidered tank. Take your skirt to the next level this summer by pairing it with a statement top. Look for anything with embroidery or detail that will make your outfit pop, then add in all your accessories + the perfect pair of shoes. Kris paired her denim skirt and rose embroidered top with some pink velvet heels, adding to the girly charm, a cute tote, and a hat. Cool girl vibes x 100! Wouldn't you say?
Remember, choose your base piece, whether it be the perfect summer dress or skirt and build your outfit around that. Bring in a matching pair of shoes and add a couple of accessories (handbag, earrings, necklace, hat, & sunglasses) to compliment the look but always remember that less is more. Follow these steps for a flawlessly styled dress or skirt look every time this summer! Tell me, what are you most excited about for this new season? I'm definitely excited about wearing all the pretty dresses and skirts!
Thanks for reading! Happy Wednesday!
