Warmer weather makes me so excited for a complete change of wardrobe. Think fun & flirty, two of my favorite words to keep in mind when I open my closet doors in search for the perfect outfit on a sunny summer morning. Now that summer is *almost* here, it's time to think of what gorgeous clothing pieces you're going to fill your summer wardrobe with. Did you know this upcoming Memorial Day weekend commemorates the unofficial beginning of summertime? I can't be mad about it since I love summer!!
Today I enlisted the help of blogger babe Kris, from Mom Jeans & Mimosas, to share some of our favorite clothing details that are sure to be popular this upcoming summer season, starting with our favorite.. the scalloped hemline! Isn't it so pretty? I love scalloped hemlines because they remind me of mermaids and the beach, just perfect for summertime! Small details in your clothing can truly be the key to making a good outfit great! Below you'll find a couple of our favorite details that you'll find us wearing all summertime long. You can also keep these in mind when shopping to be summer ready in an instant!
I can't be shellfish when it comes to the scallops. This is one of my favorite details for summertime. It's such an intricate touch that adds a great deal of interest to any look. Kris is wearing a bow-tied white and navy striped pair of shorts trimmed with an adorable scalloped hemline. I'm wearing a navy button down skirt with the same hem detail. If you only buy yourself one clothing item this season (okay, who am I kidding.. no one has that much willpower! lol) make sure to get something with a scalloped trim. It's feminine, flirty, and fun!
White blouses for summer? Groundbreaking! Haha! I kid, I kid. While it might not be news that white blouses for summer are in, finding white blouses with some of these details will help you stand out from the crowd. When shopping for a white summer blouse, look for cold shoulder or off the shoulder pieces (perfect to tan those beautiful shoulders!) and anything lace or crochet (the more intricate the better). Billowy bell sleeved tops like the one Kris is wearing is also perfect for summertime and helps keep you cool on those warm sunny days.
There's nothing more that I love than a neutral purse. Okay, okay, I love A LOT of things BUT I do love a good neutral purse. I find that buying a cute purse in a neutral color gets much more wear and use as opposed to buying one in a crazy trendy color. Of course, I am in no way opposed to fun and colorful purses but personally, I like keeping my purses neutral because they match everything in my wardrobe! (Plus, who has time to transfer ALL THE THINGS from the purse you wore yesterday to the purse you're wearing today 🙅🏻)
I never knew how much I liked dainty jewelry until I began wearing it. I always thought I was a statement-making-jewelry type of gal but what I truly enjoy about dainty jewelry is that it makes a statement without all the fuss. It's classic and pretty all in one. Sometimes simple is better and I'm all about that when it comes to jewelry these days. I've been seeing this gold coin choker all over the internet for about a month now but I didn't know where to purchase it from. Last week, I finally found it at Nordstrom and it's as pretty in person as it looks in photos. I'm obsessed! I've also been wearing my blush Kate Spade earrings non-stop! They're little square studs and I've found that the color matches a lot in my wardrobe. Kris is wearing a tiny gold pineapple necklace and dainty cactus earrings, a darling combination!
Which one of these darling summer details is your favorite? Mine is a tie between all of them, I just can't make up my mind!
