When it comes to my style in the summer, I’m not much of a fashionista. I’m definitely a shorts and t-shirt kind of girl when it heats up and I still don’t feel like I have a strong sense of style in the warmer months (that changes come fall though). However, despite my lack of fashion sense right now, and the number of cute outfits I pin on Pinterest, there are three looks that I have been loving lately. One for Sunday, one for weekends or errand days and one for beach days.
As you may have noticed if you’ve been following me on Instagram the last few weeks, the day that I put the most effort into my look is definitely Sunday. I love dressing up for church each week and putting extra time and thought into my makeup and clothing. My favourite combination is my pink lace skirt from Ruche (similar here) and my navy polka dot top (similar here). A pair of nude wedges and pearl bracelets are the perfect thing to finish it off. You can see me wearing this look here and here.
For running errands or weekends, I love pairing my favourite jeans (which are currently on sale) with a great striped top. It’s my perfect easy summer style that I can wear on hot days, or cool days when the sun decides to hide. I love adding some fun to this look with a great bold lip. See this look in action here. For days at the beach (which when you live in a landlocked province are rare), I’ve been loving strapless one piece or long tankini style suits. They’re super cute, modest, and keep me from getting weird tan lines if I by some miracle get colour that day. I also love wearing a pair of shorts to and from, and my favourite sandals from Reef. To keep my skin and lips protected from the sun’s rays, I love some Hawaiian Tropic and a good lip balm with SPF and a bit of colour.
