It is safe to say that I am no minimalist. When it comes to personal style, I tend to stick with the principle that more is more! Often, I focus on having one piece of clothing or an accessory be the centerpiece of a look in which all of the other elements compliment nicely, while solidifying the focal point as chosen item. Then I have days like this….It all started with this fun, feminine bright lilac dress. Next, I opted for these lovely, colorful earring from J.Crew to add to the look. They are extremely versatile and vibrant. Then, I applied some hot pink lipstick because why not?!? 🙂 Finally, I topped it all off with my new sunglasses from Hashtag Sunglasses. They are super colorful and reflective, making them a ton of fun to wear! My 5 year old son told me I look like a pop star in them! 🙂 (You can get 10% off of your order from Hashtag Sunglasses with the code: newshades4you.) This bold, playful, and colorful look makes me so happy! When in doubt, always add more because life is too short to wear boring clothes! 😉 xoxo

The summer sun sure is gorgeous, but it can also be OH SO HOT!  Scorching hot weather can make it difficult to look “cool”.  A not-so-secret, secret summer hack I have is to always (even if cloudy), accessorize every summer outfit with sunglasses! Not only will you look and feel like a fashion maven, but you will fight off headaches caused by squinting at the sun’s powerful rays, and conceal any makeup that is sweating off of your face! Whenever I throw on a pair of shades I still seem to look put together, even when I am a hot, sweaty mess.  😀 Lightweight fabric tops like the tulle one featured in this post are key looking cool while feeling hot this summer! Have a sunny Wednesday! xoxo

Summer Vibes

Are you feeling those summer vibes?! I am! It has been so hot in Chicago these past few weeks that it does not feel at all like it is spring. I am ready for spring to wrap up and to soak in the summer sun! This dress, and whole look, screams summertime. The bright colors and light weight fabric make this dress a colorful statement piece while being practical for those hot summer days. Not to mention, this dress is the perfect shade of sunny yellow! Throw on a sundress and your favorite shades and step into summer a bit early with me! Stay cool! xoxo
