Summer is officially upon us. I am all for the lighter traffic (some days) with school being out and all but this ATL heat is deadly I swear. While most people are trying to escape to cooler climates and beaches with their summer-ready bodies, there are still some like me who are finding more ways to cover up, create the summer body illusion, and still keep cool. That is exactly what this look is for and with 4th of July weekend upon us, each piece is an essential…
First let’s talk about this necklace. Handmade by jewelry designer, Stephanie Bijoux, it is simple elegance and the perfect touch for various summer necklines this season. I already have a good bit of gold accessories but nothing like this. The small beads and touch of pearls make it extremely unique. I think it will look best with whites, as seen here, but it is definitely a piece to have fun with. Its super cute and can dress up more of your casual summer looks.
Next, lets talk about this blouse though. It may look stiff but I promise you will feel as free as you want to be. Because it is meant to be a larger fit, it is also super comfortable. If you read my last post, you would remember that I have fallen in love with the off the shoulder look and I even hinted you would see it again…and here it is. This top came from House of Dasha just like the jumpsuit so of course I absolutely love it. The sleeves have a lot of detail too that really give it the free spirit look.
And I can’t forget these jeans. These are usually a challenge for me because of my height but in this case I didn’t care. Ripped and distressed jeans have become a staple for all seasons and honestly, it can get tiring ripping your own. Usually I would go for the vintage ones but because these are more modern, I love them even more. The length wasn’t too bad either. Considering how skinny jeans in regular sizes usually look on me, this was a big improvement. These also came from House of Dasha and paired perfectly with my adorable blouse obviously LOL.
Hopefully now it’s as obvious to you guys as it was to me why each of these items are goals. You don’t have to wear them together but individually, they all are perfect for the summer in their own ways. I know it may get a bit hot for denim most days but for the cooler nights and climates, these will still be perfect.
