Flower Power

I am not gonna lie...this skirt was hard for me to style! I think I tried on almost every short sleeved top in my closet before settling (settling being the key word) on this outfit.  It is something about the right below the knee link and the fullness of the skirt but I just couldn't win with this one and it is too late to return it. 
 Any suggestions?!

70's Chic...

I felt like channeling a different vibe today ( kindda a 70's vibe??) so I actually broke away from my Old Navy skinny jeans for once and opted for a wider leg jean and just for fun decided on a loose fitting top, cross-body bag and a pendant necklace.  

All that was missing was a floppy hat!

Orange and Chambray...

Today's outfit was inspired after looking back on some of my Pinterest boards and remembering an outfit I had pinned a while back.  I recreated it for the hot days of summer by replacing the heavy jean jacket with my lightweight chambray shirt, a shorter version of the long, maxi skirt and added some flat sandals to complete the look. 

Only a couple more days to enter the Shabby Apple and Forever 21 gift card giveaways!!

Neon...

I love the neon trend that has come back from the 80's but don't particularly care for head-to-toe fluorescent. The easiest way to incorporate neon in your wardrobe is through accessories like I did with my clutch and heels. 

If you would like to see other ways to try out neon, check out today's Everybody, Everywear post with other style bloggers trying out these day-glow hues.  Submissions open at 7am PST for anyone else wanting to link up!

Casual Chic

Running errands in the heat calls for jean shorts, sandals and a flowy, sheer top so that's exactly what I wore. Mixing vibrant colors with bold patterns or interesting necklines and minimal jewelry screams summer time to me!

If you have not shopped at the cute online boutique DejaVu (where I got my top) be sure to sneak a peek.

Tribal Print and Sequins?

Normally I don't think to pair up tribal print with sequins but I think this outfit turned out pretty well. I was really going for easy, comfort pieces that were slouchy because let's face it-after my cruise of binge eating and drinking followed up by Memorial Day weekend the last thing I wanna do is put myself in skin tight clothing!
