Summer has finally sprung in San Francisco and certain neighborhoods in the city look like a flower oasis with bougainvilleas blanketing the walls of cute little houses. I love incorporating color into my outfits and try to stay away from black looks-especially in the spring/summer months.
Mixing various patterns and textures is one of my favorite ways to give an outfit more depth and make it a bit more interesting! And yes, playing with patterns can be difficult as some combinations just don’t look good together. But for me, it’s not so much about the prints, but more about the color of the prints.
Lilac is the color of the year and was seen in many designer collection including Miu Miu, Victoria Beckham, Kenzo, and Tibi. It is the perfect pastel color for Spring/Summer and I just can’t get enough of it. I wore these wide leg TIbi pants with a chunky cropped sweater and paired everything with silver accessories.
Overalls are a summer closet staple. They are fun, versatile, and bring an effortless touch to any look. But, it can sometimes be difficult figuring out what to wear with them. You want to created an elevated look that screams cool, effortless, chic and not end up looking like a 6th grade version of yourself…lol
For summer, shorts overalls are a popular pick and choosing a linen or cotton pair will keep you cool on hot days. Depending on my mood, I like to layer my overalls with either an off the shoulder crop top to show a little midriff or a button down collared shirt for a more polished look. I also think it’s cool to leave one strap unbuckled to give the outfit a slouchy and “undone” look.
River Island is one of my favorite high-street fashion brands so I was thrilled to work with them on their Summer 2018 Campaign! The brand has so many chic and affordable pieces, especially in the New Arrivals section! Whether you need a cute pair of jeans or a dress for a special event, there is something for everyone!
I’m sure you’ve noticed but EVERYONE and I mean everyone has been carrying straw/basket bags lately. Since the end of last year, my collection of basket bags has grown and now I probably have too many of them…All the fashion girls have fallen in love and the best part about this trend is that these bags come in a variety of price points, with most of them being pretty affordable!
