Summer Lovin' Inspiration

Thursday, April 12, 2012

With summer less than a month away, I can't help but begin to dream up great outfits that are both breezy and cool for the hot hot heat and decked out with statement accessory pieces and makeup such as bright newest favorite pick-me-up. With neutral colors and pops of coral, yellow, oranges, and pinks, there is bound to be the perfect combination to make your outfit amazing. 

The Mullet Skirt

I have long admired the mullet style (the hi-low) for clothes but never felt that I could pull it off. When I found this skirt at Francesca's, (you can find it here, too) I thought I would give it a try just for the heck of it. Sure enough, I fell in love. I don't know if it's that I'm a sucker for anything polka dotted and navy, or that I just got in the shopping mood but I definitely love it. Paired with this delicate sort of shell top from Bebe and amped up with some bright fuchsia lipstick ( I told you I've been digging this color lately) and some heavy duty wedges, this is definitely an outfit that I am going to revisit for this summer. 

My dad even joined in on pictures for a bit, as he was fancily dressed--with a pocket square, too!

So, the moral of the story is to try something new. Whether it be a mullet skirt or mullet hairstyle (gosh I hope not), go for it. Here are a few other great "mullet style" pieces that I would love to sample out:


Yellow Rose of Texas

Yellow is a color that I have always loved for it's cheery quality, brightness, and overall fun color to wear. Though I usually don't think of it when shopping or getting dressed, a yellow piece of anything always stands out and catches my attention. This dress that I picked up from Forever 21 combined many of my favorite qualities in a piece of clothing: lace, a classic and flattering cut, and a great color. With summer coming up faster than I'm ready for, a bright yellow dress to mimic the soon to be summer sun was just perfect. And, paired with my current favorite bright fuchsia lipstick, completed the look to a T.

                    But more on that later...

What are your favorite colors or cuts to wear? I have many, but yellow is quickly becoming a go-to for a bright and unexpected look.

Happy Passover/Easter everyone!
