One of my biggest dilemmas every summer is trying to come up with office-friendly clothing to wear when it’s almost 100 degrees outside. Although I work in a very casual office environment, I don’t want to look like I’m on my way to the beach in my Monday morning meetings. Personally, pieces that I can wear to work or play that are easy to wear and go are my jam. One item that meets these requirements are midi skirts.
Midi skirts are clutch, because they can easily be styled for any occasion. I already a classic black midi skirt and feel like I wear it at least once a week, because it’s so comfy and so easy to wear. Therefore, I feel I need to add at least one or 30 more to my life and hopefully you do, too. I have found us some options to step our midi skirt game up for the summer.
In the words of one of my favorite rappers, Jeezy, I need a vacation! So, I’m counting down the days until Friday, because I will be off until next Thursday. After the last few weeks I’ve had, professionally and personally, I had to cash in some of my vacation days. Since the 4th of July/paid holiday fell on a Tuesday, I decided to take the Monday before and Wednesday after off. So, I might use this time to pack one of my duffel bags and take a quick solo weekend getaway.
In college, I learned the importance of having a duffel bag, because you never know you need one until you do. Duffel bags are clutch for overnight visits, quick weekend getaways, or a gym bag. If you are in the market for a new duffel bag or need to add one to your life, keep reading to see some of my favorite picks.
Hey Summer 2017! I’m so glad you’re here!
When it comes to dressing in the summer, I’ve found that wearing lightweight pieces that are easy to wear and style are a sure safe bet. This summer, I’m all about light weight dresses with feminine details, such as a white lace dress. Keep reading to get all the details on my ideal go-to summer 2017 look.
Every now and then, I go through phases in various parts of my life. For example, a few weeks ago, I went through a phase when I ate onion rings almost everyday. Currently, I’m exiting my black coffee and almond with a dash of cinnamon phase. I’ve also gone through bright lipstick phases and the overgrown eyebrows phase, but I might bringing those back for the summer. Another phase I might be going through this summer is the need to buy and wear nautical blue stripes.
My blue stripe phase wasn’t planned, but it’s happening. In the past couple of months, I’ve bought 2 different shirts with 2 different sizes of blue stripes. Also, I’m tracking a skirt with nautical blue stripes on it’s way to my doorstep as I type. Therefore, I’m in this phase and I’m still interested in adding to it. Keep reading to see what other striped items are perfect for my latest phase.
Don’t let the title of this post and the color of the header fool. I’m not the biggest fan of the color pink, except for polishes and makeup. However, every now and then, I fancy a little pink in my life. Currently, I’ve been all about pink sneakers and thankfully there are plenty of them out there. I’m not sure if it’s the anxiety of summer approaching or just the fact that pink sneakers are killing the game right now. Whatever it is, I’m in!
If you’re kind of feeling pink sneakers or just into sneakers, then this post is for you.
